11/13  Jeanné Larson with the Anchorage Medicare Information Office speaks with KTUU reporter, Caslon Hatch, about navigating through the Medicare maze. Read the report.

Scam alert! Scammers are calling Medicare beneficiaries and telling them they need a new Medicare card. They ask for people’s Medicare numbers and banking information. They may have some already, which makes them sound convincing. DO NOT GIVE THIS INFO! Medicare will NEVER call you or stop by and ask for your personal information. Here is a flyer with more information you can print and post.
