Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Scammer continues to call. After multiple attempts to ignore phone calls I answer and tell them to stop calling and the caller persistently try’s to say they can help lower cost for medical coverage. Asked if I could afford $200 a month and they would need it within the next 3 days. Even when I say stop calling. The caller tried to find out how many is in my household that’s covered. I continue to hang up after telling them to stop calling. Just today between 8:30a-1p they have tried the same script calling me 9 times with 4 different numbers.

I have been called more than the times I’ve answered. The first time a woman with a deep accent asked for someone and I asked who they were, because she didn’t identify first. I began to ask to be removed from their calling list, and she hung up on me mid-sentence. The second time I answered, a different voice asked for the same person as the first lady. I told her I wanted my number removed from this list, and she assured me it would be removed. Pretty decent call. The last time, which is what prompted me to seek attention to this number, the same woman as the first call asked for that same someone and I asked her to identify herself, and she said something about medical coverage again. I began to ask her to remove my number from their list permanently and she hung up on me AGAIN. Very rude. Very strange.

I am at my parent’s taking care of my mother. My father left to do errands and I layed down to nap. The phone rang and I answered it and a man said his name and said he was from some "medical" place. Not thinking because my parent’s always have medical appointments, he then said their phone number and asked if it was the correct one and I said yes. Then the phone hung up. I called the number back but it does not ring. I told my mother to watch all bill’s that come in for any extra charges. They do not have a credit card. WATCH OUT!!

Broken English speaking male voice, said from Medical support, asked if I was there and of course stupid me said yes, at that point he disconnected call. Saved phone number he used, 1-622-298-1898. Know there has been a scam like this going around and thought I needed to report this call, hopefully to protect me from loss of money or other information.

A called by the name of Emily asked me if I could hear her. I responded with a short "yea", then she asked me again "can you hear me", I replied with NO, she repeated herself again" can you hear me" and stated she had seen where I filed a medical issue on my neck and shoulders(it was a recording). I said no, I cannot, there is a background feed. Then I hung up. The call from NY did catch me off guard, my company office is NY and I was awaiting a call from corporate.

I want to know what precautions to take now in case the "yea" registered on the recording….
