There is a company in England that is a supplier for Medicare recipients, but they do it at enormously exaggerated prices.
This company also has a branch in North Carolina in this country.
A box was shipped to me from this company with three items inside — two soft elbow wraps and a soft neck wrap. I called the company and asked why those items were shipped to me since I have no problems with either my elbow or my neck.
I was told that my doctor ordered them. I informed the lady with this company that he would not have ordered them as he knew my medical needs. She said a return mailing label would be sent to me. The label came (it appeared to be a photo) so I checked it out for details then shipped the items back.
I thought that was the end of it.
About four weeks later, a copy of my Medicare charges came. I looked it over and found that this company had charged for the two “elbow brace with joints” at $641.26 each and a “neck collar with bars” at $494.13. The total was $1,788.65. I never received the items listed on the Medicare statements. Medicare and my supplement paid it all, while the company was out nothing, they just collected the money.
Why is an English company with a branch in the USA confiscating money out of our Medicare system, in my case illegally?
I strongly advise all senior on Medicare to carefully look over their billing statements and other documents showing financial activity.
