I have been on Medicare since last November. Everything went smoothly until the beginning of May when I recieved a letter about being canceled by AARP RX because I had another insurance. AARP had been paying for all my meds right up until I got the notice. I called right away and told them I had never canceled them.
I did in 'January look at other companies that would have cost me alot of money. But after a long delay of communication from one of the companies I was considering, I didn't it didn't get canceled for 2 weeks. But I did call AARP when I decided not to go with anyone else and let them know I was staying with them.
Somewhere 6 months later Medicare kicked out information that I was with another company and AARP than canceled me. After 3 days of working with Medicare, AARP, the other company (who I was not with on their records) I applied again, was excepted, got my welcome letter and card. Because my meds were do and I didn't have an RX in the week of cancelation and renewal the pharmacy found a way of filling my prescriptions.
I returned home after being gone 4 days with another letter and a new card from a company in California (Unicare Life and heath Insurance company) saying that they were taking care of my meds.
1st call went to AARP to make sure they knew we had another bump in the road and I was staying with them. I called our county offices to see if anyone made changes there. NOT!
Next call went to Medicare they showed AARP as my Insurance and everything was updated. I than called the other insurance company who informed me Medicare put in the request for the change. That this has happen to others.
The only thing I am happy with is that none of this was AARP or my states fault. I wonder how many other people this has happen to. I really think if we want to make a difference with the challenges of medicare it will be the generation that isn't affraid to stand up and help make the changes. You if your reading this.
We've been on medicare for a looong time and mostly no problem until we switched insurors this year.Unfortunately you do have to check almost every year to be sure the premium changes haven't made another co. a better deal. All medigap plans have to provide the same service for each Cto K plan,but the premiums change yearly. In our case the premium based on age from Anthem was considerably higher than AARP/UHG based on location!
I did have a problem with UHG on a plan D a couple of years ago.
