Scammers targeting consumers with Moda Health

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) is warning consumers about a possible scam going around after Moda Health Plans Inc. was put under supervision due to financial troubles.

DCBS said several people have received calls from people who claim to be able to help them with their insurance with Moda. The callers asked for personal information, including Social Security numbers, and threatened to cut off consumer's coverage if they do not act immediately.

Consumers who receive these types of calls about Moda should not provide any personal information.

DCBS said decisions about whether Moda customers will need to find new plans have not been made. If there is a decision, it will come from either Moda or the State of Oregon.
