Kentuckians Warned of Medicaid Scammers

The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office has issued a scam alert warning citizens of medical billing scams targeting families. Louisville residents have reported a suspicious van with occupants paying Medicaid participants $20 for a DNA sample and health insurance information, while other senior Kentuckians are receiving calls offering medical devices through Medicare. Attorney General Andy Beshear said in both scenarios that scammers were trying to steal the victim’s insurance and personal information to receive reimbursement for services or medical devices that were not provided or medically necessary. Kentuckians who may have provided their Medicaid information to a suspicious person or company should report it to the Medicaid Fraud Hotline at 877-228-7384.
