Business as Usual

Let's see, I was fired from my position at the lab thirteen weeks ago. A full quarter of a year! They have stripped me of my medical and life insurance! They have informed me I must take my 401K earnings and roll them over into some other plan! They have locked me out of access to my work email! But UnitedHealthcare still sends me a monthly email outlining my excellent coverage and how to best take advantage of using it in a proactive way! It's like they don't know I'm not covered by them anymore! This is doubly funny since I was made aware last week that UHC has hired an insurance investigation firm to contest having to pay for my pain relief treatments! Conveniently, these pain treatments took place while I was still employed and covered by UHC! This just gets more interesting all the time.

Since you are technically no longer employed, would you qualify for Medicaid/Medicare health insurance?

Not until/unless I apply for Social Security Disability.

I seem to be falling between the cracks! All of them!

Oh, wow, was the firm that contacted you actually working for THEM?

Thing is, no matter how hard they dig, they'll only find the truth.

I'm thinking that's on my side!
