Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - With the new health coverage rolling out, beware.

North Dakota's Insurance department is warning about possible scams.

Here are a few tips:

Remember, insurance must be sold by licensed agents.

And never give out your personal health or financial information to someone who calls, or comes to your home, uninvited.

“Nobody will call people out of the blue and ask you for personal information. Especially anyone from Medicare, and especially anyone from the new marketplace where you can get health insurance."

If you suspect fraud, call the federal hotline at 1-800-318-2596.
