COVID-19 Vaccines Payment Policy

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General is alerting the public about fraud schemes related to the COVID-19, commonly referred to as coronavirus.
Fraudsters are offering COVID-19 tests in exchange for personal details, and are targeting members in a number of ways, including telemarketing calls, social media platforms, and door-to-door visits. The personal information the fraudsters collect may be used to fraudulently bill health plans or commit medical identity theft. The following ways have been recommended for members to protect themselves from fraud:
- Beneficiaries should be cautious of unsolicited requests for their Medicare, Medicaid, or insurance numbers.
- Be suspicious of any unexpected calls or visitors offering COVID-19 tests or supplies. If your personal information is compromised, it may be used in other fraud schemes.
- Ignore offers or advertisements for COVID-19 testing or treatments on social media sites.
- A physician or other trusted healthcare provider should assess your condition and approve any requests for COVID-19 testing.
If you think you are a victim of a scam or attempted fraud involving COVID-19, you can report it by calling a Mountain Health Coop Customer Service Advocate at the number on your health insurance card.
