S. O. S. – SPEAKING OF SENIORS

Written by Woodrow Wilcox. Posted in Senior Living

On March 19, 2019, I helped an old church friend with a medical bill problem.  She attended my late mother’s church in Griffith.  I had known her for years.

A local hospital wanted over $200 from her.  After she sent the medical bill and some other papers to me, I reviewed them.  I wrote a letter to her asking her to call me to make an appointment so that we could phone Medicare together.

When we did that, my suspicions were confirmed.  The Medicare representative told us that Medicare refused to pay anything for two specific services because the local hospital that filed the claim made a mistake and did not give certain essential information about the services when the claim forms were sent to Medicare.

To help our client, I wrote a letter to the hospital which cited the information that Medicare gave.  I expect the hospital will realize that it caused the problem by mistake and will refile the claim with the essential information.  In this way, my work will save our senior citizen client some money.

The help that I gave this client was FREE OF CHARGE.  This agency assists our clients with Medicare claims problems like this without charge.  If your insurance agent or agency does not help senior citizens when the Medicare system fails, why not switch to an agency that does?
