Insurance Scam Targets Iowans

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller is warning that scammers are targeting uninsured Iowans who will use the state’s “Insurance Exchange” this fall to shop for coverage.

Earlier this spring Miller’s office received tips about criminals posing as federal employees implementing the Affordable Care Act, seeking personal information from Iowans. Now, Miller’s office is investigating radio advertisements in central Iowa.

Miller encourages Iowans who believe they may have had contact with a scammer to contact his office in Des Moines.
