Sutton, MA asked in Insurance Bad Faith, Personal Injury and Public Benefits for Massachusetts

Q: I am having a huge problem with Medicare. Despite doing everything I was told to do, I still do not have insurance.

I paid the amount of money I 'owed' , filled out and sent the paperwork (3 times) and still do not have any insurance. I am very worried now that I have missed my gynecological oncologist (had ovarian cancer treatments), much needed mammogram and colonoscopy (have Lynch Syndrome), scheduled blood work. I fell down on a hike and injured my arm, leg, torso. Skin has just about healed, but I have lingering pain in my arm and leg. EMTs and ambulance driver wanted to take me to the hospital or Urgent Care. I refused and said I'll monitor everything myself (they said I probably needed stitches and an ex-ray). I refused their assistance due to the fact I do not have insurance!!! Please help!

A: A Massachusetts attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal with the injury and cancer treatments. One option is to try to apply online - that could be quicker than the paper route. Another is to contact them and ask for a location of an office near you to attempt enrollment in person, if possible. Good luck
