I got my verzion healthcare deductions taking out in my jan pension
but my friend Irene didn't she got a letter saying her benefits were delayed also her supplementry life insuranse was missing
does anyone know whats going on
Donna got the same letter
we called and they said that thier wasn't enough people in accounting
which didn't make much sense to me because they got the letter out.
well it looks like next chech they will double up on the healthcare deduction and the supp ins. and that hurts

Hi Ladys and gentlemen
JJ Idon't thinks so. but if you read the first page of the web they do ask for retirees to donate $5.00 So that would be nice if you did.
I will take a look at that
I'm sure you don't have to join to blog with us
there is a form somewhere on the web you can ask a direct question to ginny and she will get back to you when she on line
Oh my God I just got out of the hospital. I just got a bill for all the bloodwork and exrays before i when in i had to pay a $20 COPAY FOR EACH ONE it came to $$120.00 and now i have to pay over a $1000.00in deductibles and lord knows what I'm going to be bill for the hospital stay. Can anyone tell what is going on with the medicare
this has never happen before
I just when thu the same thing and called benefits and they said that the union and the company changed it and we have a 1080 dollar deductible and a 800 dollar deductible for something i don't under stand
plus copayments on all ex-rays and blood work
i'm looking into a plan to takeout on my own for my family i can't afford all this either i HAVE TWO GIRLS IN SCHOOL
I GUESS WE ALL GOT SCREWED
I thoudht it was just me
wait till the other retirees use there medicare i bet they will all be pissed off. I think i too will look in to my own plan.
Oh i ques we should thank the union and the company for the SCREW JOB !!!!
I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE HCN OR HCP MEDICARE PLAN
I'M IN THE EPO PLAN IT PAY 100% I ONLY MAKE CO-PAYMENTS TO DOCTOR OFFICE
I PAY $810 A YEAR FOR THE PLAN
I DIDCONTACT PAUL AND MARYANN WHO ARE IN THE HCP OR HCN PLAN AND ASKED THEM TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU
HOPEFULLY THEY WILL POST SOMETHING
MEAN WHILE I WILL LOOK FOR THE BOOKLET AND POST IT TO A WEB PAGE
FOLLOW THIS LINK
IT'S THE BOOKLET VERIZON SENT OUT
I DO HAVE A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FOR YOU FELLOWS
1) WHAT STATE DO YOU LIVE IN NOW ?
2) THE HOSPITAL YOU WERE IN WAS IT IN THE NETWORK ?
PLEASE EMAIL ME AT
I HAVE A FUNNY FEELING YOU BOTH WERE OUT OF NETWORK
AND IF YOU WERE AND THERE WAS NO NETWORK HOSPITAL NEAR YOU
YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE GOT HIT WITH DEDUCTIBLES BUT THE BLOOD WORK AND X-RAYS BEFORE YOU WENT IN DOES HAVE A CO-PAYMENT
YOU NEED TO ASK YOU DOCTOR OR CALL THE HOSPITAL TO FIND OUT
IF YOU WANT CALL ME DIRECT.
WHEN YOU EMAIL ME I WILL GIVE YOU MY TEL#
thank ginny i'm all set now . what a big difference in what i had to pay
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOU TIME YOU SPENT ON ME !!!
I would like to thank Ginny for helping me with my bill
it is all corrected now
thanks again Ginny
I AM HAPPY YOU GUYS R ALL SET
BUT I NEVER WANT TO HAVE TO DO THAT AGAIN
I COULDN'T BELIEVE BETWEEN THE DOCTORS USING THE WRONG CODES TO THE HOSPITAL USING THE WRONG CODES AND BENEFITS WAS NO HELP.I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW LONG IT TOOK TO STRIAGHTEN OUT.
I THINK NEXT TIME I WILL LEAVE IT TO MYLES !!!
HE MOST LIKELY COULD HAVE DONE IT A LOT FASTER
I HAVE NOW POSTED A LINK TO EXPLAIN HOW THE HEALTHCARE PERSENTAGE IS DEDUCTED FROM YOUR
OUT-OF-POCKET COST (CALLED COINSURANCE)
THIS THE LINK
Ginny, Another site might be anthem/verizon.com
Follow this link just type your zip code in for doctors or hospital
THANKS AGAIN hOWIE !!!
It seems That some Doctors are confused
If you pay $67.50 a month for you medical you can go to any in network hospital for catscan if you donnot pay for your medicare anthem can force you to another hospital
for example if your on the hcp or hcn plan and you always went to a Halmark hospital Anthem will force you now to go to Winchester Hospital for catscans.
But if you in the EPO plan you can go where ever you want .
Tell you doctor to call Amthem. Some Doctors are confused !!!!!
Also if you are EPO and you have a hospital stay it is paid !00%
and you will recieve a bill for $150.00 that is your deductible
If you have a second or more stays that year you will be covered 100% and you will not recieve any other bills because you deductible is met
