Question: WHY AM I NOW RECEIVING BILLS FROM COVERED CALIFORNIA? TODAY IS SEPT. 21ST 2014. I WAS APPROVED JANUARY 2014 AND TURNED 65 MAY 18TH I PAYED MY MONTHLY DUES NOW I AM BEING BILLED FOR SERVICES FROM MARCH 2014. I WAS ON HEALTH NET COVERED CALIFORNIA FOR THREE MONTHS UNTIL I WAS ELIGABLE FOR MEDICARE WHEN 65, NOW I AM GETTING ALL THESE BILLS ADDING TO OVER $1,0000 FROM COVERED CALIFORNIA. I AM SOOO VERY UPSET I COULD SCREAM!!! I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS FROM THE COVERED CALIFORNIA PLAN RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING WHEN TRYING TO SIGN UP.. PLEASE-PLEASE HELP ME. THERE IS NO WAY I CAN AFFORD TO PAY THIS BILL!!!!!! THANK-YOU, DIANE

Answer: Diane, your caps lock key is stuck. Health Net needs to know you are now on Medicare. Call them and tell them. The number is on your insurance card. You will not have to pay premiums after May 1st.

Actually, Health Net will send you back to Covered California, as all the carries say they only do what Covered California first tells them to do.

So contact Covered California, and have them re-send your cancellation information to Health Net. And have Covered California send your cancellation information with the CORRECT cancellation date. THEN follow-up with Health Net to process your HN cancellation.

Based upon your stated birthday of May 18th, your Medicare eligibility and enrollment began on May 1st, 2014. Therefore, that would be four (4) months of coverage with Health Net (from Jan 1st to May 1st)(or did your HN coverage begin on Feb 1st?; then just three months, as you say.).

There is a chance Health Net may already have your cancellation information, as sent from Covered California, and if so, then HN (upon your contact to HN) should get your cancellation in and processed ASAP.

Best,
