NOTICE: JCHD Phone Scam Update

UPDATE: Please be aware that phone scammers are again spoofing the health department phone line again. The callers are posing as Medicare officials and are targeting senior citizens trying to gain access to their personal information.

A number of individuals are getting calls from the Jackson County Health Department asking for information about health insurance coverage or other questions. Please understand that this is someone or an agency impersonating the Jackson County Health Department. We believe this is a scam to obtain sensitive information. 

Due to privacy reasons, the Health Dept would NOT call and leave a message asking for health insurance information. 

If you receive one of these calls and are unsure, please try to ask the caller to identify themselves and ask as much information as possible. Those who wish to make a report about these calls can do so by contacting the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division. A complaint can be filed online at mi.gov/agcomplaints or by calling 877-765-8388.
