but I’m beginning to think I should have checked out Obamacare. I thought I knew what I was doing when it
came to buying insurance and I’m finding this entire process extremely
confusing and stressful.
got COBRA coverage from my last day (5/9) to the end of May. In the meantime, Ron did all the legwork to
get himself on Medicare A and B effective 6/1.
(He’s 75 but has been on my policy.)
That’s in place.
May 23 we met with our insurance agents- a husband/wife team who go to our
church. Ron selected a Medicare Supplement
and prescription coverage to be effective 6/1 (wife does the Medicare stuff)
and I selected a high-deductible plan through Coventry effective 7/1, which is
the earliest the husband said I could get it (he handles non-Medicare).
Sunday the husband told me I can’t get the Coventry plan I applied for till
open enrollment in November because I signed up for COBRA- he said it was an
Affordable Care Act provision. Today
the wife told Ron his Medicare supplement isn’t effective till 7/1 because she
didn’t get the application submitted in time.
Also today- I got an e-mail from Coventry confirming coverage as of
is the last time we do business with people from church. Ron had a bad experience with a husband/wife
pair of realtors from his church when he sold his house in NJ. He says the surgeon in our current church is
never gonna operate on him.
a few weeks I have an appointment with SS to get the Rich Person’s Medicare B
surcharge reduced because, having quit my job, we aren’t as rich as we used to
do believe that the ACA has solved some genuine problems. I know that I won’t be retroactively cancelled
when I have a serious claim because of something trivial that happened 40 years
ago that I forgot to put on the application.
It does make coverage more affordable for people who are barely getting
by. But it still needs some tweaking!
