AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine officials are reminding residents who receive Medicare coverage that their policies won't be impacted by the federal health care overhaul.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage says that some people on Medicare may be confused because the enrollment period overlaps with people signing up for coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

LePage and Bureau of Insurance Superintendent Eric Cioppa say no changes are necessary to Medicare coverage under the new law. They say seniors should also be cautious of potential scams, like people trying to sell Affordable Care Act policies to those on Medicare.

The state says seniors should never share personal information or their Medicare number with someone who shows up at their door trying to sell them health coverage.
