Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for your question. No, absolutely not, there is no age maximum for cancer coverage under Medicare. That is a false rumor that has been passed around so much that it has become like an urban legend. It just simply is not true. That misinformation came out of a false statement that included assertions that only someone's primary physician could admit them into the hospital and has been around since 2009. You can see a good discussion of this issue at the following links: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2013/02/will-obamacare-deny-seniors-cancer-care/index.htm

I wanted to touch base with you and make sure that you did not have any follow up questions for me from the answer I provided to you on the 22nd . For some reason, the Experts are not always getting replies or ratings (at the top of the question/answer page you are viewing or in the pop up box for this question), which is how we get credit(paid by the Site) for our work, that the customer thinks have gone through. In your case I received neither.
Please keep in mind that I cannot control the law or your circumstances, and am ethically bound to provide you with accurate information based on the facts you give me even if the news is not good. If you are having technical difficulties with reading, replying or rating,please let me know so that I can inform the Site administrator.Please note that Site use works best while using a computer and using either Google Chrome or Firefox.
In any event, it was a pleasure assisting you and I would be glad to attempt to assist you further on this issue, or a new legal issue,if needed. You can bookmark my page at: http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-marsha411jd/
