As anybody with a credit card or Social Security number knows, you have to guard those numbers like your grandmother guarded her pecan pie recipe.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has given more people access to health care than ever before. But it also has given hackers, hustlers and other bad guys an opportunity to steal your private information—and your money—through health insurance scams.
Here’s how to protect yourself and your private information:
Don’t buy a health plan based on price alone. Buy from an insurance company you trust. Don’t take a chance on a company you’ve never heard of before. They may not exist. You could end up without health insurance and without the money you had set aside to pay for it. It never hurts to search for reviews for the insurance company or salesperson.
