SSM Health warns of scammer posing as health care provider

MADISON, Wis. — SSM Health is warning consumers of a scammer posing as the health care provider.

Officials said Dean Health Plan, a partner of SSM, received a report that a phone call scammer pretending to be SSM Health was attempting to sell phony Medicare plans.

Scammers will use this kind of tactic to steal money and personal information from vulnerable people.

A Dean Health Plan spokesperson said that neither they nor SSM Health make outbound calls to discuss insurance plans without advance permission.
