Question about Cobra Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Medicare problem - who to go to to resolve a problem which resulted in my having to pay a medicare insurance premium for two months during which I was insured under COBRA for almost $800 a month.

I initially enrolled in medicare with a start date of Nov. 1, 2016. I then made a written request to change my initial enrollment date to start Jan. 1, 2017. I received a new medicare card with the Jan. 1, 2017 start date. However, I cannot find it. This payment for insurance occurred because I mis-understood the payments I would have to make. I had understood I had no premium, which was wrong. In order to get my insurance re-instated after it was cut off end of February, 2017, I paid for January - March. When it was still not re-instated, I was then told I would have to pay back to Nov. 1st 2016 to get re-instated w/o having to wait for a resolution of my issue. I have been re-instated, but now want a refund of the $400+ I paid for November-December, 2016. Any ideas?

I currently have health insurance $469.00 per month and need to go to a cheaper option. What do I get free as I am a senior citizen ?


If you are a senior citizen, you should know by now, nothing is ever free. Ha Ha. But seriously, you don't say your exact age or where you are located. If you are in the United States and a citizen or permanent resident, you will qualify for Medicare Part A at age 65. If you worked in the US, you had FICA taxes withheld from your pay and this is part of what those FICA taxes were for. If the coverage is not as substantial as you like, you have the option to purchase medicare supplements which will offer additional coverage. If you are low income, you may qualify for medicaid but if you've been able to pay $469/month, it's unlikely your income is low enough to qualify. There is also the Obamacare health plans which you can check on the governments health care exchange which may offer subsidies (paid for by taxpayers) to help reduce what you have to pay for health insurance. Just be careful before purchasing one that you understand what you are getting, many of these plans have very high deductibles and coinsurance making them almost useless.

Under Obama care is medicare going up in costs? They say it will go up approx $237 A MONTH AND effect people 76 and older.


Read this and decide for yourself. Most folks won't be paying any more than they did last year - at least for the Part B that Medicare directly takes from your benefit check. As far as supplemental plans and Part D premiums go, they are all over the board, with some plans going up quickly while others are holding the line.

I have read that medicare will not pay for cancer treatment for seniors over the age of 76 after 2018 as dictated by Obamacare,, is that true????


Definitely not true. But the type of Medicare insurance you have could determine your out of pocket expenses should you need cancer treatments. Most Medicare "Advantage" plans leave you paying 20% for outpatient services (this would include chemo and radiation) up to the maximum annual out of pocket amount. In 2017, $6,700 is the most you would pay out of pocket. Under Medigap Plans, such as Plan F, N, or G, that 20% is paid by the plan.
