Be Aware of Phone Scams

If you are getting health care benefits, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) will not call you seeking personal or financial information. If you are getting FoodShare benefits, your agency will call you to complete a FoodShare interview and may ask you to verify certain information to ensure they are talking with the correct person. If you are unsure of who you are talking to, hang up, and call your agency or Member Services at 800-362-3002.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation's consumer protection agency, advises consumers not to give out personal or financial information to people you do not know through phone calls, emails, or knocks on your door. Scam artists want your information to commit identity theft, charge your existing credit cards, debit your checking account, open a new credit card, checking, or savings account, write fraudulent checks, or take out loans in your name.

To file a complaint with the FTC, go to their website, or call 877-FTC-HELP. If you think your identity has been stolen, report it on the FTC’s website, or call 877-ID-THEFT.

Access Monitoring Plan

DHS has published an access monitoring plan to evaluate access to health care for individuals who receive health care coverage through Wisconsin’s fee-for-service Medicaid program.
