Guard your COVID-19 vaccination card

After you get your COVID-19 vaccine, keep your vaccination card safe — scammers are using the COVID-19 pandemic to try to steal your personal information.

Don't share a photo of your COVID-19 vaccination card online or on social media. Scammers can use content you post, like your date of birth, health care details, or other personal information to steal your identity.

You should get a COVID-19 vaccination card at your first vaccine appointment. If you didn't, contact the provider site where you got vaccinated or your state health department to find out how to get a card.

If someone contacts you to buy or sell a vaccination card, it's a scam.

If you suspect COVID-19 health care fraud, report it online or call 800-HHS-TIPS (800-447-8477). TTY users can call 1-800-377-4950.

Sincerely,

Stay safe when running essential errands

Dear Medicare Beneficiaries,

As more states relax stay-at-home orders, it's important to continue taking steps to protect yourself from COVID-19. Visit CDC.gov for tips to help you run essential errands safely, like getting prescriptions, groceries, gas, and connecting with your doctor.

Remember, if you need to see your doctor, please call their office first. Medicare has expanded coverage of telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic, for common office visits, mental health counseling, and preventive health screenings. 

During this time, you may also want to contact your Medicare prescription drug plan to see if they've temporarily waived certain requirements — like waiving prescription refill limits or relaxing restrictions on home or mail delivery of prescription drugs. That way, you can limit in-person visits to the pharmacy. 

For more general information about COVID-19 and your Medicare coverage, visit Medicare.gov.

Sincerely,

The Medicare Team
