In April 2015 my mom became wheelchair bound and company x provided the chair. In November she became bedbound. In December she slipped in a coma and was moved to an acute care hospital. On January 10th she passes away. Yesterday I received a statement from medicare that they had paid rental fees on January 15 for a wheel chair. This is the date of service 5 days after her death. Then another bill for February March April may and june.
I spent hours on hold until I spoke with someone. When I told her I was her daughter and saw these false charges. She ask if I had power of attorney and I told her no but I was in the middle of probate and her only living relative. She said she could not help me without proper paperwork. It may be months before I have legal rights. During this time how do I stop these bogus charges on a dead person?
