US Department of Health and Human Services warns Medicare users of genetic testing scam

The US Department of Health and Human Services issued a warning (06/03/19) to all Medicare beneficiaries that there is an ongoing scam involving genetic testing “cheek swab” kits. For your safety, do not accept a genetic testing kit unless your doctor ordered it, and do not give your Medicare number to anyone offering free genetic testing. Be suspicious of anyone offering free genetic testing over the phone, a health event booth or health fair, and door-to-door.
