    Scam Customers

    Eclipse is a another version. This is what I found when I googled "Prescription Glasses Eclipse": https://www.smithoptics.com/ca/Root...asses/Eclipse-Rx/p/1015978YW5816/prescription No - that is not "another version". That is just a use of the non-trademarked word "eclipse" to brand a pair...

    Scam Customers

    ? I went to medicare.gov, did a search, put in a Manhattan zipcode, and put in "wheelchair-manual" and there are 178 Medicare suppliers within 10 miles. There has to be more to your issue. I can assure you that is not normally a problem for a Medicare covered patient to get DME (durable...

    Scam Customers

    We all bring different experiences to the forum. Yours are valid. I am surprised to hear that a private insurance company was not concerned about overbilling for complexity - that is fraud. As far as supplies - it is unreal how high medical equipment is reimbursed - and I have never seen a...

    Scam Customers

    First of all, Medicare and Medicaid are not interchangeable. This is Medicaid. Medicare does not cover glasses (except for certain circumstances after cataract surgery). Secondly, Medicaid credentials this center. They did pay for the glasses portion of this bill. They have a vested...

    Scam Customers

    Looking at the photo of the place, and reading that the glasses are paid for by Medicaid, this looks like a really bad choice as far as optical stores. It looks like a "welfare mill". "Transitions" is not a coating applied at a store, but a brand-name for a lens that changes colors. Other...

    Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Credit Card Issue

    It would be impossible to wean out a marketing list from a current customer list fully. You could have a credit card under John Q. Public, and a marketing list has John Public, and they do not match. I always love how people expect an impossible degree of perfection from others, and I wonder...

    Paypals System Error Limited my account

    Is it possible that your main credit card had an expiration date that you did not update with paypal? So that when it expired, Paypal started using the next account in line - the Amex card? That is the most likely explanation for what happened. As for using Paypal as an "extra Layer" of...

    Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select Credit Card Issue

    Ting, you made a mistake, made assumptions, and now are trying to sway others to your side - which has no real basis. You will definitely fail with AA. Chalk it up to a frustrating mistake at little cost - even those points you were seeking are more trouble than they are worth.

    Comcast reps won't answer fee question without our ordering service first.

    You are way overthinking this, and while they should have a better answer for you, maybe you and customer service just aren't communicating on the same wavelength, or they are not accustomed to this question. No, they do not charge to run the wires to your house. They don't charge for in the...

    Doctor's office owes me money

    "In the future, unless there is a documented copay that is known to be constant, try not to pay beforehand. Check with your insurer. They may require that doctors who take the insurance to wait until the insurance company declares what is owed (EOB) before the patient is required to pay. if that...

    Doctor's office owes me money

    I am a physician. That is despicable. Should have been an immediate refund. But I bet they will get around to this, they just aren't so good or so quick in doing it (like airlines) and you will be wasting a lot of energy sending certified letters, follow-up letters, etc, all for nothing. You...

    Coordination of Benefits with Double Coverage - Medical Insurance

    WRONG. Insurance B is absolutely primary to Medicare if the insured is still employed, and employer has a large group plan of 50 or more. Or, I think, if spouse is employed, and same situation.

    Coordination of Benefits with Double Coverage - Medical Insurance

    It sounds like the two insurances each acted as primary insurance, instead of one acting as primary and one as secondary. Apparently one company does not know about the other. So it probably was not processed correctly. I assume this is a married couple, each having full insurance from their...

    Complete Tire Separation on Rental Now Alamo billing me for $805.00

    All true. But the relevant question is how common is that (extremely uncommon in my opinion) compared to the extremely common driving on a flat tire. Sometimes (like happened to me) you can drive pretty far and be unaware tire is flat. And when you notice a light on the dashboard today, you...

    Complete Tire Separation on Rental Now Alamo billing me for $805.00

    " Except that years ago cars did not have low-pressure tire warning lights: " the tire light came on (dashboard). NOTE: no other light came on or was on, in the dashboard. I then began to make my way over to the right-hand emergency lane ". The OP pulled over as soon as the tire light went on...
