I was under medicare (because of a disability) for a number of years, and was trying to cancel my coverage (even before I was pg. for 1st time), because I was going on DH's policy.  I tried unsuccessfully last sept. & Oct. to cancel, they lost my forms I signed, then I became pg. in Oct., so I just decided to stay on medicare, instead of going thru the hastle of going down to social security office, etc.  And I was now pg. (in Oct), the pregnancy lasted 7 weeks, then at 11 weeks found out bean died, so had to go in hospital to have a D&C (In Jan.) Well, SEVEN months, down the road medicare finds all the paperwork I signed & not only cancels me, BUT cancels me effective in Nov., and is now asking all the money back, that they already paid out in claims!!

So, not only did I have to go thru a m/c, I am getting kicked in the face again, by having to pay, out of pocket, all the money for doctor & hospital fees!!

I am 'trying' to negotiate a reduced price & pay them back, what medicare is asking back....but, I'm not sure if it will be good enough? And they will report this to my credit agency?!

I can't believe I am in this mess right now!  I 'thought' having a m/c was bad enough!!  :smileyfrustrated:

I am so sorry you have to go through this after everything you have been through.  It just is not fair.  I hope that everything is figured out quickly and in your favor.
