Have a relative, she's 80. Has lung problems, due to having TB when she was very young. About a month ago, she had to go to hosp for this. Got a letter from Medicare, saying they weren't going to pay anything. Said this hosp might be related to a fall she had 14 yrs ago. She's talked to Medicare several times. They told her problem had been fixed; not true. Her DD, is coming tomorrow; to try and help her figure this out. Question is, are they running some kind of program; on everyone's past Medicare history? Doesn't seem believable, they would just look at one persons past Medical history.
