Ep. 230 - Medicare deadlines one cannot ignore - unless you follow our advice!

September 2, 2021

Annual Election Period (AEP) is one of several opportunities Medicare participants have during the year to enroll, switch or disenroll in the various types of insurance protection one needs to consider.

The short version: A careless hospital employee drops Gramps on his head; the hospital manages to keep Gramps alive for three expensive weeks in the ICU; after Gramps expires his family wins a wrongful death lawsuit against the hospital; then Medicare swoops in to collect the money it paid the hospital to keep Gramps alive.

Seems like Gramps is the big loser here, but the litigator does all of the crying.

In this episode we hear from a risk-taking woman who actually made herself a guinea pig. She called the insurance agents who hired Joe to entice us to "get what you deserve". 

What she got instead was misleading Medicare Advantage pitches aimed at the naïve and gullible.

Among my favorite clients, Ken & Schelly relocated and set events in motion that ultimately exposed a flaw in my message: Sometimes I don't make it clear that I want to sell you the insurance you need for Medicare!

Insurance premiums should have been deducted from Social Security payments. Lots of people woke up months later to find their insurance companies dunning them for past-due premiums or cancelling coverage outright. Eventually all were made whole but only after a period of angst.

Following that was the heartbreaking story of Mark and how, through persistence, he managed to solve his frustrating problems while breaking MY heart!

For those waiting for approval of a Medicare application or an IRMAA appeal, the wait can seem interminable. Recent feedback tells me that consistency is out the window. Each office seems to operate in its own vacuum.

Is this any way to run a government? Just ask our buddy Steve!

As participants get sicker, they are more likely to leave MA plans, often due to the difficulty of gaining access to specialists and top-notch treatment facilities.

Don't blame me; this information is contained in an official GAO report!
