Telemarketing/Robocall Complaints

Over the past several days we have received a number of complaints regarding telemarketing robocalls from Central Health. These calls are not from Central Health – this organization – but from a group called 2020 Healthcare Central, with whom we are in no way affiliated.

We are the Travis County Healthcare District and we do not use robocalls and we do not do telemarketing.

You have two options to stop the calls. You can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov, and you can add your number to the National Do Not Call Registry – www.DoNotCall.gov.

Again, we’re sorry for the inconvenience and understand tour frustration, but please understand we are not associated in any way with these calls.
