Attorney General's Office Warns Consumers About Fake Health Exchange Websites
The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office is warning consumers to avoid fake websites set up following the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.
Scammers are using the new health care law as an opportunity to gather personal information and sell fake services and products.
"The Attorney General sent cease and desist letters to the operators of two websites, and also sent civil subpoenas requesting information about these websites that mimicked the national health care exchange website,” said Kentucky Attorney General’s Communications Director Allison Martin.
She added those wanting to sign up for the state's online health exchange should avoid sites ending with the prefix "com" or "net." She said the only legitimate website Kentuckians should use to sign up for the health exchange is www.kynect.ky.gov.
