It is the middle of the night and I cannot sleep. What makes your brain wake you up with information that you have not even thought about, at all? It happened at about 1:30AM and by 5:30AM after tossing and turning I got up to check to see if what I was thinking was true. It is.
What awakened me was the thought that I did not remember seeing that my Medicare supplemental
insurance premium had been deducted from my account. Not only was it not deducted this month, it has not been deducted since December 2016.
No, I have not changed my account number or anything. Yes, I've received notices about premium increases. The next one goes into effect May 2018.
Since nothing has changed in my status, I had not given it a thought. What the heck in my brain woke me up to tell me this?
Even the place where I am going to have my knee surgery checked my Medicare and Medicare Supplemental coverage status and all is good.
Now the dilemma is, do I notify the insurance company that they have not been deducting the premium and face the fact that for non-payment they will cancel my coverage? Where do I come
up with $2,077.05 to pay the back premiums? And, how do I do that to prevent the coverage from
being cancelled? Do I cancel my surgery scheduled for March 14th for fear that afterward the supplemental policy will not pay?
Oh my, I wish my brain had not decided to let me know of this mess! Any suggestions readers?
Anyone ever had anything like this happen? How did you handle it? Inquiring, but a tired mind, wants to know..........
