How to Stop Unsolicited Medicare Calls - United Benefits

Receiving unsolicited calls about Medicare can become overwhelming as you near 65, with some people reporting up to 50 calls a day. These calls often come from blocked, unknown, or spam-labeled numbers. However, there are effective measures you can take to minimize these disruptions.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is actively working to shield consumers from such intrusive calls. The FCC has tackled unwanted calls and spoofing on many fronts as possible by:

  • Offering consumers advice on preventing unwanted calls and call spoofing
  • Implementing new rules to better protect and empower consumers
  • Penalizing violators who engage in these aggressive calling tactics
  • Keeping the public informed about available call-blocking options
  • Promoting innovative solutions that favor consumer interests
  • Encouraging the private sector to do more to combat unwanted calls and texts

Telemarketing companies must adhere to specific regulations when making calls. To curb the influx of unsolicited calls, follow these easy steps:

  1. Register your phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry (DNC).
    • Call 888-382-1222 or go to to register your number.
    • You’ll need to provide an email address to confirm your registration. After submitting your number, you will receive an email in order to verify your number. Follow the verification link sent to your email to complete the process. You must do this for your number to be added to the DNC.
    • Each phone number you wish to protect will need to be registered separately.
  2. If registering your number does not stop the calls and you have not requested information about Medicare, you can file a formal complaint with the FCC.
    • You can print a form and fax it to the FCC or file a complaint on their website.
    • There is no cost to file a complaint.

By taking these steps, you can significantly reduce the number of unsolicited calls and safeguard your peace of mind.
