Larry Posted September 30, 2005 Share Posted September 30, 2005 I first discussed this on the sclc page but feel it is better talked about here. If you've read what i've written on the sclc page i hope i do not go over it to much. To put all in a nut shell the state of kansas told my wife thursday that as of 9-30 that would be her last day of insurance coverage. Well needless to say that put us in a almost panic mode. We checked out the possibility of medicaid and quickly found out were part of the evil rich (me on SS and her on disibility). So after taking my dog for a walk this morning it struck me like a lightning strike, hey stupid call the state offices and talk to those in charge as i know from past experiences that as thing's go down through the beaucratic jungle confusion reigns. Well i was correct as after talking to them and all the wife has not lost her coverage. What has happened is starting next month (october) she will be direct billed in other word's the state no longer pay's for her insurance. We back in August signed paper's to remove me from coverage as i start medicare part's A and B in October. So because of all the paper work being shuffled around they do not have the signed document's that remove me from the insurance so they are rushing new paper's to sign to us and that will take $423.00 a month from the wife's insurance and i'll buy supplemental insurance for $97.00 a month which will cover all medicare does not pay and that is over $300.00 a month less than if kept on wife's insurance. Now let's hope it's all straightened out...... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
