With new reports of fake calls wrongly seeking money, Wyoming Medicaid, which is part of the Wyoming Department of Health, is alerting clients and their family members to be cautious of potential Medicaid coverage scams. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

According to the Wyoming Department of Health, clients have been receiving calls asking for their credit card information to process payments to renew Medicaid coverage. The calls may have come from numbers that appeared to be used by previous contractors for the Wyoming Medicaid program.

Lee Grossman with the Department of Health said Wyoming Medicaid and the related Kid Care CHIP program never charge clients directly or ask for money from individuals for enrollment purposes. Grossman added that they never ask for banking, debit card or credit card information and clients should never share that kind of detailed information with anyone claiming to be a representative with Wyoming Medicaid or the Wyoming Department of Health.
