How do I disenroll from Medicare Plan B without any penalties & enroll into her health plan?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
They told me to send a written statement to Social Security, Western Program Service Center, P.O. Box 2000, Richmond, CA. 94802, so I decided to look the center up and this is how I got to you. Are we on the right track?

Hi - Megan is not responding ... and I haven't seen her her for quite some time

...

I hold a JD (Juris Doctorate, a doctoral degree in the law), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA, with specialization in finance & tax, as well as CFP® and CRPS designations. - I’ve been providing financial & tax advice since 1986.

I can help here

Social Security Expert: Lane, JD,CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

You DO, in deed, send the written statement to Social Security to un-enroll.

...

Given the very high volume of work there ... AND the fact that we've seen furloughs and other cutbacks in the bloated government systems (needed, but right now creating adjustments ... "shrinking pains") the processing has been VERY slow.

...

I would be sure (1) to request an EFFECTIVE DATE of the date you enrolled in your wife's plan (2) be sure that the plan DOES cover the part B services and (3) MOST IMPORTANT, send this as a certified letter, so that you have proof/documentation that the letter was received.

...

Please let me know if you have questions

...

Thank you!

No I'm not paying anymore money, this is ridiculous. I just want an answer to my question, which I paid for already. :>(
Social Security Expert: Lane, JD,CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

I DID answer your question

.

(1)Yes the written statement IS the right process

...

(2) sending certified is a best practice, and

...

(3) make sure that you SHOULD drop, because in SOME plans medicare is still the primary carrier

...

Thorough and accurate ... Help me understand how I did not answer that question

Social Security Expert: Lane, JD,CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

As you were saying that I was adding one more piece that may be valuable:

...

If your wife's company has less than 20 employees then it's usually normal NOT to un-enroll ... becausee, as I mentioned earlier, medicare can still be the primary carrier on part B services and then the company plan picks up costs above what Medicare can pay

...

But other than that, the answer is simply YES, you're on the right track and I would SEND that letter via certified mail
