Medicare members are being threatened by loss of benefits, but it is the
service providers who are causing the problem with unnecessary or
non-existent services and/or supplies/equipment. I banged my elbow and
went to the emergency room while traveling. A chest X-ray was included
in the bill. I went to a Pennsylvania emergency room for a sore throat
while traveling--they didn't even do a throat culture but said I had
post-nasal drip. The bill was $700. I'm sure there are many other such
stories out there. Let's hear them.
Tell Medicare that providers should be required to send a detailed copy of bills that are sent to insurance companies so we can report any suspicious charges. Please share this with your friends.
