Dear Ann Landers, You have printed a few letters about outrageous medical bills, and I thought you might enjoy mine.
When my father broke his hip, he received a statement from Medicare saying they could not pay his hospital bills because his employer would provide coverage. Ann, my father was 93 years old and in a nursing home. Exactly who was his employer supposed to be? A month after Dad passed away, he received a notice of cancellation of his benefits, saying the reason for termination was "death," and that if he had any questions, he was to appear IN PERSON to discuss the problem. What do you think of that? -- J.E. on the Web
