9. I'm thinking the company was expecting Medicare to cover.

But Holliman refused to sign the paperwork allowing the company to bill Medicare and the company then took the legs back.

"On Dec. 23, an employee from Hanger came to the Veterans Home to see Holliman. Holliman said the man was adjusting his prosthetic legs, then asked himto sign some paperwork for Medicare.

Holliman said he declined because the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs should pay for the legs in full.

"This is their responsibility," Holliman said.

The man responded by taking the legs and leaving."

If Holliman had signed the paperwork, he would have kept his legs.
