To the Editor,
My wife and I both had pneumonia in February. Just before that I had a colonoscopy, and my wife saw an ophthalmologist. Months later, I’m still not quite sure how much we will have to pay “out of pocket,” even though we have been the recipients of 68 pages of bills and benefit statements from Medicare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and the medical providers. The benefit statements list specific medical services, the date provided, the name of the provider and the code for the service that was provided.
