18. They don't know that they've been sold out
This was one of the reasons I started looking for information. I worked for Doctors and was so frustrated and even humiliated by having to tell seniors that their deductibles and copays had gone up, behind their backs, without warning! We always tried to notify them in advance of this but inevitably we had a few that would come in find out what they now had to pay and get really upset. I had some crying and others yelling and calling their insurance companies because they thought we were trying to rip them off. Unfortunately some of these people have just stopped getting the medical care they need and apparently they don't talk much amongst themselves. I am disgusted at what this administration has done to seniors, but what do they care they are far more likely to die off before the next election cycle than complain. AARP has sold them out too, they just haven't figured it out yet. Most doctors won't take that AARP discount card. I won't EVER work in the medical industry again unless it is reformed to help ALL people, not just the wealthy. some of these people's copays went from 10 or 20 dollars to 50 dollars!! On a fixed income and no chance of supplementing that income with outside work that is simply not right!
