HEARING AIDS Before you buy a cell phone, you should try different brands and models to see which works best for you, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Some cell phones can cause radiofrequency interference with hearing aids, so the user hears high-pitched whistling sounds, buzzes or static. The Federal Communications Commission now requires cell phone manufacturers to test and rate their wireless handsets’ hearing aid compatibility using the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) C63.19 standard. These ratings give an indication of the likelihood a cell phone may interfere with hearing aids: the higher the rating, the less likely the cell phonehearing aid combination will experience undesired interference.

IDENTITY THEFT REMINDERS • Do not give out personal information over the phone or online. • Ignore pfishing emails asking for you to divulge personal data. • Ignore phone calls and emails from another country. • Your credit card number can be used by scammers who know the zip code is needed at untended credit card terminals, such as gasoline pumps. The next time a sales clerk asks for your zip code for marketing purposes, simply decline. • Do not post personal information, such as your zip code, date of birth or other identifiers that could be stolen, on social media. • Do not use passwords such as names, dates or locations a scammer could obtain from your social media accounts. • Think twice before joining a birthday club that gives you a free dessert or discount on your purchases because scammers can pair that information up with other data they’ve obtained about you to steal your identity. • Do not carry important documents such as your passport or social security card.

INSURANCE Most health insurance plans do not cover you once you leave the U.S. Contact your insurance provider to see what is covered when traveling and ask what happens if you get sick, does it cover preexisting conditions, accidents, medical, dental, prescriptions and emergency evacuation. You may also want to look into travel insurance in the event you need to cancel your trip, miss your connection, your flight is cancelled, weather protection at your destination, terrorism coverage, you get sick or injured on your trip, baggage is delayed or lost, your passport is lost, or your travel company files bankruptcy.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PACEMAKER WEARERS Based on current research, cell phones do not seem to pose a significant health problem for the vast majority of pacemaker wearers. Still, people with pacemakers may want to take some simple precautions. • Hold the phone to the ear opposite the side of the body where the pacemaker is implanted to add extra distance between the pacemaker and the phone. • Avoid placing a turned-on phone next to the pacemaker implant (for example, don’t carry the phone in a shirt or jacket pocket directly over the pacemaker).

PREVENTING MEDICARE FRAUD • Visit only your personal doctor, hospital or clinic for medical help. Only trust them to make referrals for special equipment, services or medicine. • If someone calls and tries to threaten or pressure you into something, hang up! • If someone comes to your door and says they are from Medicare and they need your Medicare number, shut the door! • Never sell your Medicare number. • Never provide a salesperson with your doctor’s name or number. • Never show anyone your medical or prescription records without first talking to your doctor or pharmacist. • Do not leave mail in your mailbox for more than one day. People can steal personal information right out of your mailbox. • Rip up or shred your Medicare papers and other important documents before throwing them away. • Remember, Medicare does not sell anything. • Always check your Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) for charges for something you did not get, billing twice for the same thing, and services that were not ordered by your doctor.
