VT Officials Warning Over Vermont Health Connect Scam

The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation is warning Vermonters to be aware of potential scams regarding Vermont Health Connect.
MONTPELIER, Vt. - The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation is warning Vermonters to be aware of potential scams regarding Vermont Health Connect.

The department says they received reports of fraudulent phone calls made to Vermonters by people pretending to sell health insurance in order to obtain personal information.

“The scams that Department of Financial Regulation is aware of have involved tricking consumers into revealing Social Security numbers, credit card numbers or other personal information under the guise of enrolling them in a health insurance plan on Vermont Health Connect,” Commissioner Susan Donegan said.

A press release says the federal government and other states have alerted consumers to watch out for con artists who might try to impersonate navigators and other health insurance sales people in order to obtain personal information.

 If you believe you have received a suspicious call, contact the Department of Financial Regulation Insurance Division at 1-800-964-1784.
