TJ Regional Health warns of phone scams
By Stacey Biggs
We have been notified that scammers have recently called patients posing as employees of T.J. Regional Health. The wording may vary, but in general, the caller states that they are updating their records and are then asking for the patient's Medicare number and/or other private information.
Representatives from T.J. Regional Health will only contact you in conjunction with a service you are planning to have or have already completed (such as a doctor's visit, a test or a procedure). They will not ask for personal information over the phone -- insurance information is gathered in-person on patients' initial visits.
If you receive a call of this nature, it's okay - and even encouraged - to be skeptical and to protect yourself by asking questions and confirming that the call is legitimate. Feel free to ask the caller for the name of their supervisor, and to call the main hospital number at 270.651.4444 to make sure that you're talking to a legitimate representative of T.J. Regional Health.
