Re: Aetna Reps phoning retirees for a “so called” poll?
According to Dr. K. Fluke, 2-retired educators have received phone calls from a male representative from Aetna asking them to respond to a poll. He asked personal health questions. These two astute individual retirees refused to give out information over the phone and then also phoned STRS to complain about this privacy intrusion.
Personal health is a private matter never to be discussed over the phone. Who knows for sure whom this individual might be? Even if it may be legitimate, your personal health information in the wrong hands can cause all kinds of expensive trouble for you. Just politely hang up.
