Speaking of Seniors – Lab Demanded Over $2,000 from Senior

A senior citizen client of this insurance agency brought to our office a bill from a laboratory for over $2000. The client is from Whiting, Indiana.

The bill was for $2280. The client brought to our office an explanation of benefits from his insurance company, also. The document showed that the bill had been paid.

To help our client, I wrote a letter to the laboratory. The letter explained that the records and information of the insurance company showed that Medicare adjusted the bill down by $1095.60 and that the insurance company had paid the balance of $1184.40.

The letter requested that the laboratory re-check its records and that it should contact the client’s insurance company if it needed more information to clear the matter.

This kind of medical bill problem assistance is provided free of charge to clients of this insurance agency. This commitment to service is one of the reasons that this insurance agency has become the largest senior citizen oriented insurance agency in the Midwest.

Probably, this situation was caused by the complex satellite and telephone system of information and payments which is the back bone of the Medicare system. In the case at hand, a Medicare Part C policy and payment were not successfully sent through the electronic data system.

Here is something to consider. If Obama and his allies in Congress impose a national health care system that is modeled on Medicare, then everyone in America will start the have medical billing problems that are similar to the expensive problem that this client had.

  1. As a physician, my patients have far more problems with the private insurance programs than Medicare. Most patients find the Medicare system less burdensome, so while it does make mistakes, it is a vast improvement over whar we have in the private market which all too frequently denies entire hospitalizations.
