SOS: Speaking of Seniors - Shocked Doctor Tries to Help

doctorI received a phone call from a client of this insurance agency on January 3, 2014. The client is an elderly woman from Whiting, Indiana.


She phoned me to thank me for working with her to help her with a bill for medicine that Medicare refused to help her pay while she was hospitalized. She said that she showed her doctor the bill for the medicine and her doctor was shocked by the bill that totaled over $1,500 for medicine that should not cost that much.

God bless that doctor for trying to help the patient with a bill that Medicare refused to cover in any way, shape, or form. I have heard of other doctors who have tried to help the patient. I believe that most doctors go to medical school because they know that they have a natural ability or talent in the field of medicine and because they really want to help people.

That is not often the case with politicians and lobbyists who change the rules of medicine. In this case, the Obama administration leaders of Medicare changed the rules to disallow payment for many medicines that senior citizens need when they go to a hospital. This shifts the costs of the medicines onto the backs of senior citizens. And other rules under Medicare Part D for prescription drugs are so burdensome that most senior citizens don’t get help to pay for the hospital medicines from their respective Medicare Part D insurance plans.

In late July of 2012, the Government Accounting Office released the results of a two year study of Obamacare. That report stated that the Obamacare law would result in more than $700 billion dollars of reduced Medicare benefits for senior citizens. The federal government is busy changing Medicare rules in order to shift more costs onto senior citizens and save the federal government over $700 billion dollars to finance the Obamacare law.
