In the US, 14.8 million people will suffer from depression in a given year.

Anyone can become depressed. Adults of all ages, teens, even children. Depression is not just feeling a little blue. And it’s not about willpower.

Beware of this Scam

The Tennessee Senior Medicare Patrol has received several reports of Medicare beneficiaries receiving postcards in different colors from The Joint and Back Institute with special notices concerning Medicare and Insurance Covered Back and Knee Support systems.

They ask beneficiaries NOT to call the number listed on the postcard and advise that you talk to your doctor first. According to Medicare Guidelines, Medicare only covers back and Knee braces that are deemed medically necessary.

Fraudsters are hoping to get your Medicare number so they can bill Medicare part B for equipment you did not receive, or bill for more expensive braces or knee support systems.

If you received such postcard as seen below, please report them to the Tennessee Senior Medicare Patrol at the toll-free number at 1-866-836-7677.
