In the legacy of the great band Chicago, that's the title of my new hit single.
Anywho, called United Healthcare on Tues, Oct 8, 2013 to see if I can move the COBRA process along.
I was informed that the process hasn't been started because I am still covered by United Healthcare. When I asked if there was an end date or a cut-off date, I was told, "no".
So I went to my pharmacy and bought the meds that have been waiting for my money and sure enough, co-pays were the same and everything. Nice. Hopefully it holds out until the 15th and my followup with Dr Sivakumar. Somehow I think not.
Especially since I hung up the phone and walked to the mail box and found a letter from United Healthcare and Cobra informing me that a "qualifying event" had occurred (I got laid off) and the paperwork can start moving.
So yeah, United Healthcare says I still have healthcare insurance and that it hasn't been cancelled, but I receive a letter predating the live phone person's statement by at least two days...
I also spoke to someone at unemployment. She asked me some questions and said I'd have an answer on Monday.
Also called my attorney, as they had sent me a welcome package with lots of info and a page that started "when to call us". One of the things on the list was "SS sends you new paperwork". I received two requests for info. I told this to Vanessa, my legal assistant, and she said I should just fill them out and mail them. One of the forms was about how much I had taken from Worker's Compensation. To the best of my knowledge, I've never applied for nor received Worker's Compensation.
