LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Attorney General Dustin McDaniel is warning Arkansas consumers who are eligible for Medicare to stay alert for possible scams during open enrollment.

Medicare open enrollment begins Oct. 15. During that time, senior citizens 65 and older have the option to review their current plans and make whatever changes they choose.

McDaniel says consumers shouldn’t provide personal information or account numbers in response to unsolicited calls or email and to be wary of callers who claim to be from a hospital, doctor’s office, or state and local health agency.

He also says many offers of free medical supplies or complimentary checkups are ways for unscrupulous groups to gain access to personal information.
