A big hit to the back pocket
« on: February 23, 2018, 01:50:16 PM »
Like so many others, after we went full-time, we changed our domicile to South Dakota. While volunteering in New Mexico, I had to go to the hospital for pulmonary edema and pneumonia. After release, my wife signed up for home health care and oxygen equipment.

Now we are told unless we have a NM address, we will have to pay for it. This was the company that provided the services, not Medicare or our supplemental insurance.

None of the doctors or the hospital has said anything about a problem with the address.

We can use my sisters address here, but would that help or would it still be rejected?

Will Medicare and your supplement reimburse you if you pay out of pocket.?
