NC Seniors in DC to Fight for Social Security, Medicare
DURHAM, N.C. – Fifty-three North Carolina seniors today are taking a hands-on approach to potential cuts to their Social Security and Medicare benefits. They boarded a bus early this morning for Washington to tell their congressional representatives about the impact cuts would have on their well being. The group is part of nearly 500 seniors on Capitol Hill who intend to share information that half of all Americans age 65 and older earn less than $20,000 a year, according to AARP figures. Helen Featherson, president of the Durham AARP chapter, is on the bus. “If you want to cut, cut someplace else, but don’t balance the budget off the backs of us who are dependent; because we were promised that if you worked, you will get Social Security. ” Under the Budget Control Act, a congressional “super committee” is responsible for trimming $1.5 trillion from the nation’s debt, and changes to Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid could be part of that. If the committee doesn’t reach consensus, automatic cuts take effect in 2013 – and it’s unclear if they will include the three programs. AARP legislative liaison Chip Modlin, 75, of Fayetteville, says Social Security should not be part of the budget debate. “Social Security is something that we earned, we pay into it all of our lives. Social Security hasn’t added one dime to this deficit and it’s not in trouble financially.” According to AARP, half of all Medicare beneficiaries spend at least $3,000 out-of-pocket annually on their health care. The North Carolina group joins seniors from eight other states on Capitol Hill today. AARP says those who couldn’t be part of the bus trip can call 1-888-722-8514 to voice their views.

Madame Defarge: NC Medicare Transfer Confusion: It Does Not Matter That You Sent In Your Palmetto NC Medicare Paperwork Ages Ago
As per the personnel on the phone at Palmetto a moment ago, they have been managing NC Medicare for over 30 days now. However, when you call up the IT – Tech Services arm of the company, make note that of the 8 options, for there is not one referring to ‘NC’ as per that tel number: 1 866 749 4301. So, pick any one of them; I picked the 1st one’ Trailblazers.’ That will take you to an IT person who, if you’re lucky, will tell you that your registration that you just created at the home page in order to access documents to do business w/ Palmetto, ‘does not work’ or there is some problem and that he will ‘send it back to provider services and they should send you an e mail within 24-48 hours.’
NC Medicare Process For Potential Care
For this purpose they will seek the assistance of NC Medicare even if they may be over the income limit. Some of the medical conditions will have a direct correlation to NC Medicare as to the criteria that a medical board would use to determine likelihood of one receiving a donor organ. If their investment is not likely to have a lasting effect, or even if they went through with the procedure the patient would not be able to benefit from it for long, then they will not be willing to go through with it. At the same time, the gravity of the situation may mean that a beneficiary would receive more aid. Some conditions will only worsen and be much more expensive later on, so Medicare will invest on preventive care to keep the worst from happening.
David Post: Don’t touch my Medicare
Why are voters so quick to protect the rich from taxes and not protect the elderly and the poor? Today’s senior citizens are told that these cuts won’t affect them. After all, they vote. At the same time, the steady drumbeat that the young will receive no government retirement or health care benefits is taking hold. The younger they are, the more they believe it and the more they don’t vote. Third, voters think individually rather than collectively as a nation.
CMS Announces New Program Integrity Initiatives: More Recoupment Efforts Will be Forthcoming
Part A to Part B Rebilling: The third initiative will allow hospitals to rebill for 90 percent of the Part B payment when a Medicare contractor denies a Part A inpatient short stay claim as not reasonable and necessary due to the hospital billing for the wrong setting. Currently, when outpatient services are billed as inpatient services, the entire claim is denied in full. This demonstration will be limited to a representative sample of 380 hospitals nationwide that volunteer to be part of the program. This demonstration will allow hospitals to resubmit claims for 90 percent of the allowable Part B payment when a Medicare Administrative Contractor, Recovery Auditor, or the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing Contractor finds that a Medicare patient met the requirements for Part B services but did not meet the requirements for a Part A inpatient stay. In addition, this demonstration is expected to lower the appeals rate which will protect the trust fund and reduce hospital burden. Beneficiaries will be held harmless with respect to changes in hospital coinsurance liability.
