INSURANCE

i sent this to an Ann Landers one time but it was never printed maybe she was afraid they would sue her but this is a personal experience my husband had ostio arthritis very badly it finally got to the point where he had to have a knee replacement after much thought he chose his surgeons from the advice of friends who had had the same operation i was retired and had my pension he had a small disability claim from the service for several years we had carried A A R P insurance after the surgery when we applied for insurance the company your doctors don't accept medicare so we won't pay and they never did pay a penny yet in all their advertisements i had never heard them mention this a lot of arguments about why this is such a good insurance to have but i have never in their advertisements say be careful that the dr you chose will accept medicare or we won't pay i think they should be made to include this in their advertisements anyway it left us with a $700 dr and hospital bill so when you buy insurance be careful don't pay them for several years and then find out they are not going to pay anything avoid A A R P or be really careful when you chose your dr
