I’m gonna die by Stroke or Heart Attack long before Medicare lets me go to the f’in hospital! I am so irritated by this whole Medicare process, it’s an experience you have to actually participate in to understand. Let me tell you the story . . .

For the past 35 – 40 years I have had Kaiser Hospital for my medical coverage. At 65 Kaiser kicks you out requiring you go get Medicare, does not matter if you are retired or not. So, I contact Medicare, they provide me with Medicare part A and B. But when I get the paperwork on it, I don’t have Kaiser. My part B is some weird Insurance company back east. I don’t want this, I want Kaiser. I tell them I do not want the part B they have given me, that I want Kaiser. They tell me I can change it when open enrollment starts again. I tell them I don’t want their bullshit part B and I’m not going to pay for it. So, after a few months of my not paying for it they kill my part B instead of giving me Kaiser. Have I pointed out, I’m not even retired yet.

Of course, you know what happens next . . . I enjoy a motorcycle accident, WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE. I end up in the hospital with a broken ankle, broken hip, smashed up face, and stuck in a hospital 35 miles from home. Did I mention I had no health insurance? Well the doctors at the hospital figured it out before I did, and they didn’t want to do a damn thing for me. They had me down in x-ray, took pictures, saw what was wrong and didn’t put a cast on my ankle, required I purchase a $95.00 walker before I could check out, and did nothing for the dislocated shoulder that I didn’t know was dislocated but they did. So, I get myself put into a debt I do not need:

  • Central Valley Imaging . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $678.49
  • UCSF Medical Center . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$5153.00
  • AMR Global Medical Response . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..$3044.91
    • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$8876.40

Plus I’ve lost my beautiful 1998 Harley Road King to a Tow yard someplace in San Jose that lien sales it a week later. I took about a 10k hit losing the bike but that doesn’t piss me off near as much as Medicare.

You see, in addition to Medicare fucking with me, the medical bills, and the pain enjoyed as part of the accident. I was also found responsible for the accident, so my insurance didn’t pay shit. But, it even gets worse.

I get telephone calls between 10 and 30 per day, starting at 6:00 AM from Senior Life and Medicare Benefits trying to get me to get me to buy my Medicare C and D from them. It DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU GET OFF THEIR LIST ONE DAY, you are back on it the next. And get this, none of the phone numbers called from are working numbers.

As for Medicare, you irresponsible muther-fuckers can kiss my ass. My shoulder is still dislocated since July 7, 2022, I am diabetic having vision problems, and I feel like shit. Did I mention that I have had about 11 strokes? Anyway, fuck off, I would rather die than keep fucking around with you folks.

Oh, I got a letter from Kaiser yesterday telling me they couldn’t be my medical provider because I don’t have a Medicare Part B. I call Social Security who tells me I can have my Part B, but I have to pay the period that they had me on Part B to now even though I declined it and never used it. At about $150.00 per month, sure I’ll just run out and pay that today. And after my monthly comes out of my retirement when I retire, Social Security will give me about $550.00 per month to live on.

And, I am still not retired.

Don’t ya’all get all concerned about me. I’m just ranting caused I’m pissed off and frustrated as hell and like everything else . . . I’ll get over it.
