Senior Care Plus, a Medicare Advantage Health Plan, held a grand opening August 19th, to introduce its new location near the Renown South Meadows hospital campus. SCP, a division of Hometown Health, offices are now located on Professional Circle where expanded workspace is dedicated to 250 employees who have watched the company outgrow the Harvard Way location.

Jules Ackerson, Hometown Health Marketing Business Partner, says the new building has plenty of office space, conference areas, a bistro, and sweeping views of the South Meadows landscape.

The SCP offices are located at 10315 Professional Circle, Reno, NV 89521. Hours of operation are: Monday through Friday, 8-5 p.m.

You do not need an appointment. Phone SCP/Hometown Health at (775) 982-3232.

Social Security Scam Awareness

Social Security is trying to prevent a scam that has been perpetrated on consumers nationwide. Scam artists have been tricking consumers into sharing their personal information or money.

“We’re here to help you identify and report these kinds of schemes. The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has a new web page with tips on how to protect yourself from theft schemes, how to report scams, and recent fraud advisories,” said Jim Borland, Acting Deputy Commissioner for Communications. This is in response to an ongoing phone scheme, where individuals receive a call with a recorded message claiming to be from the OIG. The message states the individual’s Social Security account, Social Security number, fraud/or benefits are suspended, and that they should call a non- Social Security phone number to resolve the issue. When the individual calls this number, an unknown person pressures them into providing money to resolve a fabricated issue such as a warrant.

“Social Security does not solicit your personal information over the phone or by email, or request advance fees for services in the form of wire transfers or gift cards. If anyone pressures you to provide personal information or money over the phone, just hang up.” If you suspect fraud, report it by calling 1-800-269-0271.
