Re: Can't Stand Dealing with SSA

@lmtep @I find the only solution dealing with them is in person at your local office.Try to get an appointment and bring everything you will need info wise and even stuff you think you don’t need.

No way to get out of Part B that I have found. For some reason DH only pays $90 a month and I have to pay $135.

I went to the SS office and spoke with an person directly about SS and Medicare...Part B is non-negotiable if you don’t have employers insurance. Problem with Medicare has been so many doctors don’t take it now due to the very low reimbursement rate. We both have Advantage plans through my former employer and that helps more than anything.
