Senior Health Tip: Health Scams to Avoid

Unfortunately, seniors are often the target of health related scams. Watch these tips to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Unfortunately, seniors are often the target of scams. Since it is common knowledge that every citizen over the age of 65 is eligible for Medicare, many con artists will use this to their advantage.

A few tips: First, never sign any blank insurance forms. Be wary of buying prescription drugs online. While they are usually cheaper, they are often counterfeit. Also, steer clear of anti-aging creams or pills that claim miracles. As the old saying goes, if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't true.
