20111112, Marilee

Almost caught up!

I actually got through all of my regular online activities except the new posts on Making Light and still watched TV at 9pm. I had planned to watch Viva Laughlin at 8pm while I was online, but it was replaced by an old CSI. I guess that's it for that show. And then I read all of last Sunday's paper! I feel fairly competent.

Today I went to get yarn and then groceries and I will soon start Monday Cat Blankie Laundry.

When I pulled in to get the mail on the way home, one of the neighbors in the next building was getting his mail and he said "Medicare and Me!" and I said, oh, probably me too, and yes, my yearly "Medicare and You" was in the box. My part B deductible is going up a bit, but Kaiser's premium isn't changing and there's not many other changes. I called Kaiser Member Services, followed orders and pushed 5 for Medicare and then stayed on the line if I didn't want to talk about meds, and ended up at Advice. Advice transferred me to someone who had no idea what I wanted, but did transfer me to Member Services Medicare. I told her how the forwarding was wrong before we stopped talking so that can be fixed. I asked her when the Kaiser booklet will come out because that's what will tell me what the formulary is, which is the other important part, and she said early November.
