Say no to scams

Don’t share your personal information or give money to anyone saying you have to pay them to keep Medicaid or CHIP coverage or apply for Marketplace coverage. Your state and the Marketplace will never threaten you or anyone in your household or ask for your credit card information or payment to keep or qualify for health coverage.

Report it if someone calls, emails, or texts you asking for:

  • Your personal information (like your Social Security Number)
  • Money (like credit card payment, gift cards, cash, prepaid debit card, or cryptocurrency)
  • Or, if they threaten you or anyone in your household with legal action

Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Also contact your local police department.
Visit HealthCare.gov to learn more about keeping your information safe.
