On Tuesday and again on Thursday I received a call from AARP and United Health collection division saying that I owed over $800.00 in back payments from 2006 to 2010. I have just had my Medicare reinstated thru Social Security Disability as of January 1, 2010. I was informed by Social Security Disability in writing that they were enrolled in part D thru AARP and United Health. Both these phone calls lasted approximately 45 minutes. When I informed the operator that I had not been enrolled in Social Security Disability or Medicare since 2005 thru 2010 because I had returned to work full time and I was ineligible to receive any these benefits. I informed the operator that I was receiving health care thru my employer.
The operator said that they had a signed application from me dated April 2006 for part D. I asked her if she could send me a copy of this application or a form to request a copy of this application I was to have signed so I could see if someone has stolen my identity. She said she could not find a copy of this application to send me but would try to find a copy. I had informed the operator that I have disliked the AARP organization for years and until Social Security informed me in December 2009 I have shred all AARP correspondence without opening until then. I have never been a member of AARP.
I informed the operator that without seeing the application that I was to have signed by me in April 2006 shoeing that I was to have enrolled in part D I was not going to pay the back payments. I did tell the operator I would pay from January 2010 when Social Security Disability informed me of my enrollment.
I have received notification in writing every time Social Security has changed any part of my benefits. I have never received a letter about enrollment in Medicare part D until December 2009. Either someone has stolen my I.D. or AARP and United Health are trying to pull a fast one.
