Floridians Warned Of Blue Cross Blue Shield Scam

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

Floridians are being warned of a telemarketing scam targeting seniors -- especially those who are customers of Florida Blue.  

Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis says that, nationally, Blue Cross Blue Shield has received complaints from members about scammer calls involving experimental pain relief cream to replace current pain medication.  

The callers are attempting to steal identities or fraudulently charge an insurer, resulting in the victim paying out-of-pocket expenses or receiving a bogus product.  

Patronis reminds Florida seniors that anyone who provides prescription medication without a medical doctor directly involved in their personal care is committing fraud.
