Has your doctor’s office ever asked you for your social security number?
Well, here is something I bet you didn’t know about that…
When you fill out those forms as a new patient and it asks you for your social security number…
YOU DON’T HAVE TO GIVE IT TO THEM‼️

Generally speaking, the law says you’re under NO obligation to provide your social security number.
So, PROTECT your information and STOP giving out your social security number to your doctor.
