As if I was not having a bad enough day at work yesterday, I get a call from the urologist that my 90 year old father has been seeing for the past year and a half saying he was there and his medical insurance was being denied. He has Medicare and a supplemental. Would Medicare just drop someone? I get home from work and call Medicare and after being on hold for 20 minutes they tell me that they really can't tell me anything because they don't have me listed as a contact. I do have POA but to be made a contact I have to fill out a bunch of forms and have my father write a letter then send that off. I told the woman on the phone that quite frankly I don't have the time to do that. I am happy to send them a copy of the POA but that is it. I have been down this road with one of my father's banks. It ended with me spending an entire vacation day sitting in the bank getting it all straightened out. I called the supplemental insurance company and they couldn't do anything without me having his card in my hand which I don't have. My father has completely checked out with taking any responsibility for himself. His usual line to any one is 'my daughter takes care of that'. I do handle his finances but medical is more that I can deal with. All I wanted to find out is if he still has medicare coverage. How hard should that be? Anyone have any tips to find this out?
