So, this just happened…
EH got a phone call from someone purporting to be from United HealthCare, and they were actually calling about me (we are on the same insurance). The woman on the phone said that UHC pays for a home visit program where they will send someone out to MY HOME to visit with me to discuss my health, review my medications, and go over my doctor’s and medical conditions. (I was quite sick last year’s end, but have recovered, and was never offered this option amid visits to the doctor or ER or urgent care.)
This makes my hair stand on end, to say the very least. My insurance company is good for ONE thing. Paying the bill.
NOT advising me on my healthcare, NOT telling me what meds I should or shouldn’t take, NOT telling me which doctors I should seek care from.
If I hadn’t just sat through hours of social engineering talks at a hacker convention, I might not immediately go to SCAM, but I certainly don’t want my insurer in my home. The conflicts of interest seem legendary to me (do they evaluate what’s in my pantry, my choice of toilet paper, or if there is a mildew or mold or pollen problem on my property?!?)
Anyone else hear of this/been contacted?
