Protect Yourself Against Phone Scams

Every year, thousands of people lose money to telephone scams — from a few dollars to their life savings. Scammers will say anything to cheat you out of money. Some seem very friendly — calling you by your first name, making small talk and asking about your family. They may even claim to work for a company you trust.

If you get a call from someone trying to collect a payment for Dean Health Plan or obtain your personal information (date of birth, social security number, full name or mailing address) and you’re unsure if the call is legitimate, please report it to Dean’s Special Investigations Unit at 877-249-2176 or A Dean Health Plan representative will help determine if the call is legitimate or a scam.

Scammers use high-pressure techniques to persuade you to give away your credit card and personal information. Remember to stop, think and question before releasing any type of personal information to an unknown or unexpected caller.

Tip: Join the National Do Not Call List
Register your home and mobile phone numbers with the National Do Not Call Registry. This won’t stop all unsolicited calls, but it will stop most. If your number is on the registry and you still get calls, hang up and report the caller at
