DOH: Be Aware Of Urinary Catheter, Glucose Monitors And Supplies Scam

The Hawaii Department of Health advises the public to be aware and cautious of fraudulent claims regarding urinary catheters, glucose monitors and similar supplies. To spot the scam, here are the red flags to look out for:

– You don’t recognize the ordering physician’s name nor have you been seen by the physician
– The ordering physician is located in another state
– You receive an Explanation of Benefits (“EOB”) or Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) with a large quantity of supplies you’ve never received
– You don’t have a medical condition that would require the supplies

If you have encountered a suspicion billing activity, contact Senior Medical Patrol Hawaii at (808) 586-7281 or toll-free at 1-800-296-9422.
