Deceptive marketing is the use of false and/or misleading information to capture the attention of the consumer through the usage of false information to persuade buyers into a business transaction that will not typically be beneficial to you but “yes” beneficial to the one doing the deceptive advertising. If you receive an offer that is too good to be true, it probably is!
If someone calls you and says they are calling from Medicare, hang up. Medicare does not call beneficiaries to offer them any goods or services.
If someone calls you with insurance offers, tell them to send you the information in writing.
When you receive flyers, calls, mail enticing you to respond and purchase, please don’t. Please feel free to call the MA SMP Program 800-892-0890 and let us check into it for you.
