SPECIAL NOTICE

Beware of COVID-19 Test Kit Scam & Request for Personal Information

The U.S. government is warning people to beware of being offered fake COVID-19 test kits. See information about COVID-19 scams from the US Department of Health & Human Services here.

People are reporting being targeted with phone calls, social media messages, and door-to-door visits, and have been asked for personal information in exchange for a fake COVID-19 test kit. The fake COVID-19 test kits may be harmful to users, and the personal information collected by the criminals may be used for identity theft or to fraudulently bill health care programs.

Helpful Tips:

  • Be suspicious of any unexpected calls, emails, messages, or visitors offering COVID-19 tests or supplies. You should talk to your doctor or other healthcare provider if you feel you need a COVID-19 test.
  • Never share login information such as passwords.
  • Never share your social security number (SSN). Monroe Plan will never ask you for this information. 
  • If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from Monroe Plan and you feel uncomfortable, we recommend that you ask for the caller’s name and department and call us back at the number below. Once you call back, you can ask for the representative by name, and we can connect you to that person directly.
