Medicare HELP NEEDED..

I was out of country for 6 months and I had terminated my SSI benefits. I wasn't aware of informing Medicare so I didn't.
While I was away, Medicare sent me bill and then for non-payment they suspended my benefits on 9/30.
When I returned, I paid balance due check at SSA office on 10/4 and still waiting re-instatement of my benefits and I am told that not sure they will reinstate my Medicare benefits.
I am 79, US citizen and need medical attention soon.
WHAT CAN I DO NOW? I need medical attention asap, I had a STROKE while I was away and need to follow up with doctors and might need surgery.
