Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger warns Kansans, especially older adults, to be on the lookout for fake insurance policies.
Fake agents are reportedly showing up at Kansas homes, representing themselves as agents of the federal government selling “ObamaCare” insurance policies.
“The federal government employees, as well as the rest of us, are sorting out the details of the new law,” Praeger said, “and unsolicited contact such as this is a scheme to defraud you of your money.”
Praeger encourages Kansans to use common sense when making insurance decisions: “We always say, ‘Stop. Call. Confirm.’ If it doesn’t seem right, stop the transaction, call the Kansas Insurance Department, and confirm that any agent or insurance program is licensed to do business in Kansas.”
The Kansas Insurance Department’s Consumer Hotline number is 800-432-2484.
