I received a call from ALL AMERUCAN MEDICAL on 2-24-21. The gal’s name was Anne Williams. I found out later by googling this company name, that there is a legitimate All American Medical company that provides diabetic supplies to its customers. However the call I received was about my Medicare card. They wanted the date on the card that I received the card & also my card #. I gave them neither! They already had my name & address. They said they need to send me a new Medicare card because of Covid. This sounded rather suspicious to me & as I kept asking them questions, I was eventually put on the phone with a "supervisor", who’s name I gave above. She reassured me this was a legitimate company, but I still had reservations because we receive so many scam & telemarketer calls. When I kept questioning their legitimacy, they finally hung up on me.
I’m glad I did because I then immediately called the # on back of my Medicare card & they said they do not work with any company by this name & they DO NOT need to send me a new card!
I was VERY glad I knew enough to not give that All American Co my Medicare #. I dont know what they do with a Medicare # if they receive it. I feel bad for those that do give out that information because they do sound very convincing, but its a scam!!
Victim Location 51501
Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare
This company is contacting our patients trying to get them to agree to purchase DME (specifically a back brace) however the provider will not sign off because the patient has no indication for the use of a back brace or other DMW at this time. The company then tells the patient to just find a new doctor till you get what you want. The company also admitted to me the RN Lead on the phone that they do tell patient to just find a new doctor till the patient gets that they want.
The company calls patients at least every other day, several times a day. This particular patient is slower functioning therefore she believed she needed one because that company told her she did.
