When you are on social media sites, be careful for misleading ads and posts offering free things when it comes to Medicare.

The SMP has heard reports of spend cards, Medicare flex cards, and dental coverage offers targeting Medicare beneficiaries that lead the online user to a Medicare Advantage website to access these but, in turn, beneficiaries are signing up for different plans without realizing it.

If you have questions about Medicare savings or coverage, contact your state SHIP. They are unbiased Medicare counselors who can help with coverage questions. If you believe you were misled in your coverage or were enrolled in a Medicare Advantage program unwillingly, contact your Senior Medicare Patrol at 513-458-5523
