    My client is enrolled in Medicare Part B only. He was born in 1949. How can I assist him to get Medicare Part A?

    How can I void faxing Scope of Appointments for UHC? Is there an easier/cheap way to do it, besides faxing?

    You can email the SOA if you have a way to send securely [email protected]. Cam Scanner app lets you take a pic with your phone. Also you can fax with a Magic Jack over your WiFi.

    You're not seriously concerned about the price to fax...

    (Tip: use web based faxing like srfax)

    Faxing an SOA to UHC is a toll-free number. Hard to beat free.

    That is a good question!
    He does not know how Medicare Part A is missing?

    According to him, the card was sent through the mail. He does have Aetna Part D. How he was enrolled? Is a good question too!

    He received both cards through the mail. He has a problem hearing on his flip phone.

    He lives in the woods with no network. He thought he was insured. How sad?

    You can have Part B only and enroll into a PDP. When he worked, was it a gov't job? He might not have paid into SSA to get free Part A. In that case he'd need to look into what benefits he might be eligible for through the job.

    also
    I believe; and Im sure someone can verify. UHC will accept any approved Scope from a different carrier as well. ie Silverscript

    I had the same issue yesterday.
    He didn't have enough credits to get no premium part A.
    Medicaid was paying for part B and Extra Help got him a PDP.
