VA Warning of Veterans Choice Line Scam
Notice to Veterans: Choice Imposter Line
A Veterans Choice Program imposter line has recently been established by an unknown party to mimic the Choice line and potentially scam Veterans.
Choice Line: 1-866-606-8198
"Mimic" Line: 1-800-606-8198
The "mimic" line may be intended to reach Veterans who inadvertently dial the Choice line incorrectly.
- It has been reported the "mimic" line offers callers a $100 rebate if the caller provides a credit card number.
- The "mimic" number does not state callers have reached the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the Choice line.
- Callers have reported the "mimic" line incorrectly confirms callers have reached the Choice Program if the caller asks the question.
The Veterans Health Administration Office of Community Care has reported the other line to the Office of Inspector General for a possible civil or criminal investigation.
Always be aware. Under no circumstances should you provide credit card information over the phone for the Veterans Choice Program.
