Scam Alert Issued on Discount Health Insurance

A scam alert has been issued regarding a healthcare scam. The Attorney General’s office has received multiple reports of health insurance related scams. A Lexington resident recorded a portion of a scam call from the “National Health Enrollment Center.” The automated caller asks if you are looking for affordable insurance coverage and quickly says you qualify for great plans as low as $199 a month for individuals and $399 a month for a family plan. The call is then transferred to a “qualified insurance specialist,” who pretends to help you get access to affordable coverage while taking your personal and financial information. The Attorney General’s office advises Kentuckians to avoid these scams by never paying for access to health insurance, guard you personal and financial information, be wary of all medical discount offers, and verify the company or agency.
