Rachelle Swisher, City Clerk] Treasurer Scum Alert: Preventive Genetic Testing Iowans on Medicare are vulnerable to companies promoting a "free" genetic (or DNA) test to screen for cancer. The individual is falsely told that Medicare will pay for it. People are being targeted at community events, residential centers, and housing complexes. The individual is asked to swab their cheek to collect a DNA sample to send to a lab for analysis. In another scenario, they are contacted over the phone and told they will receive a DNA kit to return with their cheek swab. In both situations, they are wrongly told the test will be covered completely by Medicare, and all that is needed to process it is their Medicare number. What to know: Medicare does NOT cover genetic testing as a screening and prevention benefit. Medicare only pays for DNA or genetic testing in rare circumstances where it is medically necessary for treatment or diagnosis of a medical condition. These tests must be ordered by the patient's own physician. There must be documentation in medical records to substantiate the need for testing. What should I do? 1)Contacted by phone? Hang up! Do not answer any questions, give out any personal information, or your Medicare number. 2)Contact Iowa SHIIP - SMP at 1-800-351-4664 to report suspicious requests for your Medicare number. 3)Remember that Medicare will not call you to confirm your personal information, your Medicare number, or ask questions about your health. 4)Report Medicare marketing violations. Door- to-door sales or unsolicited contact with an individual on Medicare is prohibited.
