I’m 65 and beside myself with the details involved with Medicare, the many plans have made me think twice about having my medical condtions resolved because of the chance of having to pay for evaluations or testing done where copayment cost is concerned. It’s overwhelming to me. Joker haha. I couldn’t decide on my own what plan to choose and within 2 weeks the choice was made for me which.
I felt was unfair. I have comprehention problems a 3rd math level and am suffering with 3 medical conditions that need evauations done. Then I get a bill in the mail because I was charged for previous blood work done by my pcp because my Dr. Off. couldn’t collect the cost for the blood work and my medicare coverage wasn’t right and it took another week to straighten that out by calling my Soc. Ser. worker on sept 30th and my medicaid was cancelled on Oct 1st which made it impossible to keep my 2 appts with specialists to a cardiologist and ENT for my ruptured left eardrum and the infection in my right ear…so while. I was suffering it was up to me to clear up the fact that the right medicare coverage/card wasn’t given to me then the 1st choice was corrected plus 4 hrs on the phone while in pain. Joker haha. I was told to destroy the previous medicare blue & white card and wait for the next one but my appts were only 1 week away, so how in the world is a 65 yr old with medical conditions suppose to cope and make nessesary changes..couldn’t keep my appts and had to cancel until. I paid my premium for medicare which I couldn’t afford with my oct soc sec until the next month yet.
