Atlantic — Officials at Cass County Health System and Cass County Public Health have received multiple reports in March of phone-related Medicare and vaccine scams occurring in the region.

Please be cautious about sharing personal information and financials over the phone. Some of the reports included that the phone numbers appear to be local. When in doubt, patients can always ask for the caller’s name and phone extension, and then call the main CCHS phone number at 712-243-3250 to verify this information.
