Re: [IP] Medicare Strikes Again



Hi James,

I would fight them.  I would get a lawyer (Legal Aid in Denver handled my
social security appeal very well), appeal their decision and fight them in
every way possible.  Sometimes, IMHO, the government issues blanket denials
of claims, and only those who put up a fight keep their benefits.

Best wishes,

Lisa Mattox
