@sjzreb, @daviddd I read your posts concerning Medicare, and I wonder if it's the company or the doctor. I write this because I had an incident that causes me to think it's the doctors. I also have Medicare with a supplement. We have never had any problem with Medicare, but once when I needed to see an orthopedic surgeon. We usually check the web site to see what insurance a doctor accepts or call and ask, if it's not listed. Because the appointment with this surgeon was made by my PCP with that recommendation, I didn't check. I got to the appointment, gave them my insurance cards, and went back to the examining room. The nurse came in and I told her what was going on. I waited and doc never came in. Eventually, I went out to the first nurse I saw and asked how much longer. She told me he would not be in because HE did not accept Medicare. She said one of the doctors in the group did accept Medicare, and I could make an appointment with him. I was shocked! I cannot repeat what I told her to tell the surgeon, but I left and never went back. I looked him up on the web when I got home and sure enough it said he did not accept Medicare. So, maybe it's not the insurance but the doctor. I also see an endocrinologist and my A1C is below 6.0 and Medicare pays. Has anybody else had the problem with Medicare not paying?
