I am new to Medicare. My income and assets are on the low side and I’m having difficulty paying for my prescription drugs. A neighborhood counselor told me about Extra Help. Do you think this is something for me?
I just looked at my mother’s latest Explanation of Benefits, and her equipment supplier is continuing to bill Medicare for a knee CPM machine that my mother rented after a fall, but has since returned. Should I look into this further, both to protect my mother and to avoid scamming Medicare?
I recently enrolled in premium-free Part A, but learned that I will have to pay a premium for Part B. Could I get some information on Medicare Savings Programs, which I’m told would cover my Part B premium?
I am in charge of my father’s care, and he was recently hospitalized as an inpatient. How does his Medicare work for his hospital stay, and what can I do if the hospital wants to release him before I think he’s ready to be discharged?
My wife’s recent hospitalization was confusing for both of us and we are having difficulty figuring out her bills. How can we better understand Medicare coverage for hospital stays and how much services will cost us?
I just turned 65 and don’t feel like I know very much about what’s covered and what’s not covered under Medicare. How can my doctor help me get the services and care I’m entitled to receive, and how can I be sure her recommendations are in my best interests?
