AARP Maine is hitting the road to talk about what’s been on everyone’s minds: health care. Funded by a grant from Maine Health Access Foundation (MeHAF), AARP Maine is holding a series of community forums throughout the state (please see our schedule, below).
Did you know? AARP Maine is in the news every week talking about issues of concern to Mainers 50+, upcoming events and much more! We talk about health care, caregiving in Maine, fun, social events, scam and fraud awareness, age-friendly communities and ways we can work together to bring positive initiatives to our state.
Starting next April, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will begin issuing Medicare cards that do not display Social Security numbers. New beneficiaries will get the modernized cards first, and then new cards will be issued to existing beneficiaries. This change presents an opening to scammers. If you get a call claiming to be from Medicare asking you to confirm your Social Security number for the new card, this is a scam! It is also a scam if you get a call claiming you have to pay for your new card. Hang up immediately.
