‘Becky from Medicare’ is Not Calling

September 14, 2021

A robocall with a voice disguised as a woman named Becky, supposedly a patient advocate from Medicare, is calling offering free genetic testing for early signs of cancer or heart disease. Don’t fall for it – don’t give them any information. Medicare only pays for genetic testing in limited situations and only when it is prescribed by your doctor. You may be stuck with a $3,000 to $30,000 bill. Read an article, which includes information from and about the Senior Medicare Patrol, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
