I got a letter on Humana stationery asking me to mail or fax my social security number to confirm 1095 info. This seems rather sketchy to me so I spoke with a Humana customer rep who said she was unsure if the letter is legit or not.
So please, can anyone answer the question: did/does Humana send out letters asking for SSN#s be mailed or faxed to them to confirm 1095-B status?
I'm 90% sure it's a scam, but the letter looks fairly authentic. And the fact that Humana can't give a definitive answer one way or the other just confuses things.
If it is a scam - Humana needs to alert its customers. If it's not a scam, Humana should do a better job of letting customers know it's legit.
If it is legit, I have these questions:
1. Humana has had my SSN for over 15 years now, why ask for it again now?
2. Humana had my SSN so that they could send a 1095-B last year - how could they misplace it in 6 months?
3. Why wouldn't Humana allow me to enter SSN on website?
