Hello, my name is nan .My husband and i are now caring for his mother who came to us in 04 she has alzheimers . She previously lived with her sister for some 20 years in 04 her sister( patty) died.Thats why she came to us. Well along the way while she was in pattys care , patty failed to pay one of her medicare payments and stopped altogether.My mother in law(marilee) then lost her medicare ins. it wasnt her fault as patty had a power of attorney and paid all the bills with marilees check (she was a nurse for years) No body in the family knew about this it happened clear back in 01! So now it all rests on me because my husband works 10 hours a day he isnt here.Ive been trying to get it back the ss office says different things i cannot get a straight answer one will tell me you need 720.00 another has said no u just need to re-apply during enrollment time with 265.00 So i called the medicare hot line and they say no its88.00 x how ever many moths shes gone without it which would be nearly 5000 .00 I cant find anyone to help me figure this out i have written my congressman twice without even gettin an acknowlegement they even recieved my letters asking for help. what do you think. we cannot afford her medicine and nobody in the family wants to offer help they dont even visit and she has a daughter too.But they like to talk behind our backs and say we are not doing her right. I really dont know what to do.
