Just as I suspected... I guess

A while back I got a weird letter - more like a memo - saying that the state of Washington will be paying my federal medicare bill. I sent two emails and then climbed a telephone tree and was assured that by the state of Washington that they will NOT be paying my medicare bill or any other bill. I was finally and forever off their payroll.

I applied for and got state medicaid for the one month between my COBRA insurance's end and my Medicare beginning. Turning it on was really easy. Turning it off may be my life's work.

Today I received a check for $104.90 from the Federal Government. This is exactly the amount of one month of Medicare. Me thinks that something's hinky somewhere.  I am grateful that it's not the other way - that they aren't charging me double but still...

I'm cashing the check - just did - LOVE deposit by phone - but I'm also keeping close track of what they send when. When this comes back to bite me in the butt, I'll be all NOT SO FAST there, buddy... I have a paper trail.
