CMS Scam Alert

Officials at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) said recently that scam artists have been contacting physicians’ offices by fax, claiming to be a Medicare carrier or Medicare Administrative Contractor. The fax instructs office personnel to respond to a questionnaire and provide an account information update within 48 hours to prevent an interruption in Medicare payments. The fax may have the CMS logo and/or the contractor logo to enhance the appearance of authenticity.

The CMS advises physicians who have received such a request to contact their Medicare contractor immediately. Medicare providers should only send information to a Medicare contractor using the address found in the download section of the CMS.gov website
