Re: Dear fellow insomniac

I think it is quite unusual for direct payment to the company by the insured. For certain any insurer will cancel policies if they are unpaid and that is why they are usually paid out of SS benefits.  Some time the elderly need some oversight before the family is aware of their decline. For one thing the children do not want to step in if the parents pride might be bruised. Some time their finances are aheckuva mess before they do act.

Re: Dear fellow insomniac

Yeah I not worried yet, like I said they were really busy with my mom's mom since april/may time period. Mom left the mail in the car a couple of days and some bills fell under the seat. Just glad they don't treat the gas and electric company the same way, at least they sent out second notices that mom paid. I would hate to have them only be able to sign up for electric and gas once a year.

Looks like you have gotten to the nuts of it but it remains that you haven't, after a number of opportunites here, seen fit to remove or correct the original caveat that this situation was somehow a problem with O-care, Medicare, SS or Medicade.  Just sayin'.

Re: Dear fellow insomniac

Yet it is still a problem with the Affordable health care. If it were not for that Mom and Dad could get their health insurance back tomorrow. The rules that keep people from getting sick then getting insurance keep them from being able to simply correct the problem. Red tape at its worst.

Re: Dear fellow insomniac

I don't think you understand yet. I thought it was your grandmother that had her insurance lapse. Now it sounds like it was your parents. Perhaps it isn't socialism that is making you poor. Perhaps your problem is that you don't comprehend very well.

 

BTW if your parents let their insurance expire without abamacare, they may not get a new policy at all.

Re: Medicare

In my first post I wrote that my grandmother had passed away. Now why would she need insurance if she was dead?

I have been told by two different people that if you do not have health insurance now you can not sign up for any health insurance until the next open enrollment period. I don't know if it is true or not.

Re: Medicare

You seem to be able to research, cut and paste every other bit of anti Obama propaganda, that bit should not be a problem.

Re: Medicare

That is the issue with my parents. They missed a payment in June, now they can sign up in Oct and start recieving coverage again in Jan. That is according to the lady my Dad talk to on the phone.
