Beware of Health Insurance Sales Phone Scam

We have learned about robocalls being made by people falsely claiming to be sales reps of Blue Cross or Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois. The robocallers claim to be selling health insurance. We are not making any automated prerecorded sales calls.

Those calls are not from us. We don't yet know who is placing these calls. They appear to be trying to get you to give out personal or financial information.

This is reported as a nationwide scam.

If you get one of these calls, hang up right away. Don't give out your personal information. Don’t respond to prompts asking you to "press 1" or "press 2."

Open Enrollment for individual health insurance ends Dec. 15, 2018. Unless you have a qualifying life event, you can't apply until the next Open Enrollment starting Nov. 1, 2019.
