Hi, My father broke his hip and wound up in a rehab facility a few months back. He lives in Florida with his girlfriend and me and my brother are in Pennsylvania. His primary insurance ran out so his case worker switched him over to Medicare. Unbeknownst to me, neither the case worker or his girlfriend looked into signing him up for supplemental insurance to offset the amount more Medicare doesn't cover. So his girlfriend calls me on the phone yesterday panicking about the rehab bill he just received for $5000.00 that's due in a week. She then proceeds to ask me and my brother to pay the entire bill. I asked her why he wasn't signed up for supplemental insurance and she replied with, "I'm looking into it." My question is isn't it incumbent upon the case worker to have looked into this for him before switching over to Medicare?
