Few weeks ago my wife ended up in the emergency room. Naturally she was administered some pills.
Yesterday she got a bill for $89.60! Medicare and Supplemental have always taken care of the full bill.
Phoned the provider and the explanation I received was this. Medicare does not pay for any medicine which the patient could take home or on her/his own!
In other words, any medicine which is taken orally they will not pay for!
Has anyone else encountered this?
