Hi Ron's Liz. The number you listed was off by one digit. No big deal. Anyways I did called pancan but they referred me to patient advocacy. I've worked with them before and have had mixed experience. The last worker that I contacted for another issue was not very good about letting me know when she would be available nor did she ever answer her phone. I gave up after numerous attempts. Anyways I attended a Medicare workshop. Medicare is different if you are under 65 and disabled vs just being 65. Depending on your state, under 65 can be denied medigap, or advantage plan or can be accepted then cancelled at any time. Kind of scary. My biggest concern is will medicare approve the multiple mri's and ct scans needed for surveillance. I am hoping so.

Thanks for reaching out.
