Regence BlueCross BlueShield has issued an unusual warning for consumers to "beware vitamin coverage scams."
Regence members in Washington, Oregon and Idaho, the company says, have reported getting notices for medical services they did not receive. The claims were allegedly filed on behalf of companies selling nutritional supplements. The claims are coded for things like consultations, lab work or x-rays, not for vitamins.
