spent the last couple days trying to get an answer regarding Med part B vs my Union health.
Many hours on the phone (and on hold) with numerous not sure people at both CMS and SSA.

Finally got thru to someone with their cookies in order this evening, and spent 5 minutes finding out about a form etc.
Wish me luck!

What a country!
Good thing health insurance isn't socialized like them commie 5h1th0le Scandinavian countries.

smurfs to the rescue!

Went through the application process a year ago, found that the SSA people are the ones that know the answers and rules about getting signed up and many were quite good. But for every answer I was unsure about I called back until I got the same answer 3 times in a row.

The CMS people seemed more like a text to speech service reading stuff off of their website, couldn't go into any more depth, just repeated what was on the web page.
