I ask myself this question a lot as it seems, once you are eligible for Medicare, there’s no end of the paper you’ll be receiving. It astounds me how much stuff they send out every week. I need a separate file cabinet just for Medicare. It’s just crazy, if you ask me. And not only that, sometimes you receive the same information more than once. Of course the government is involved here and I always tell myself we know they don’t know what’s going on in any given department on any given day.
Years ago, I had two old men working for me part time and they would always tell me about their Medicare woes. I would laugh and wonder if it was as bad as all that, but they were right. For those of you not yet old enough for this, you can expect to be overwhelmed by paper you don’t know what to do with. And to find anything that makes any sense, in most of it, is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
But it is insurance and I haven’t had that in years, so I guess this is a small price to pay. But I still don’t think we need all this paperwork. Years from now, I wonder if we’ll be able to find a forest.
