Unfortunately I believe this one boils down to corporate greed and the old adage that "absolute power corrupts absolutely". I was led to believe that Blue Cross would be better then Medicare, but I am learning that Medicare covers more the Blue Cross for the elderly.
I am currently trying to compute the dollar value of someone paying into Blue Cross for 65 ++ years. At a current rate of $1400 per month. That is $16,800 per year. If that figure is the inflation adjusted number then I can just multiply $16,800 X 65 years. So I cannot compound interest. But 16,800 X 65 = $1,092,000.00
So the corporate entity has received over a million in payment value over 65 years and now wants to deny $2500 worth of benefits. Something is wrong here.
