<<I've been on Medicare for 7 years so I'm set.

Ummm. You are probably only set until you need to see a provider you haven't seen before....

I'm in the same boat as you. I called for an appointment with a specialist I hadn't seen before. Of course they wanted to know how they would be paid ---which meant how MUCH they would be paid. When I said I had regular Medicare, they scheduled an appointment all right ---for two months down the line.

I don;t blame them. Medicare's cheap rates cause a loss with every use for health care providers.
