MEDICARE Coverage In a Nutshell
The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, "Hello".
Mrs. Sanders, please."
Mrs. Sanders, this is Doctor Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory.
When your doctor sent your husband's biopsy to the lab yesterday, a biopsy from
another Mr.Sanders arrived as well, and we are now uncertain which one is your
husband's. Frankly the results are either bad or terrible.
"What do you mean?" Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.
"Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimers and the other one tested positive for AIDS. We can't tell which is your husbands."
"That's dreadful! Can't you do the test again?" questioned Mrs. Sanders.
"Normally we can, but Medicare will only pay for these expensive tests one time."
"Well, what am I suppose to do now?"
"The people at Medicare recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town.
If he finds his way home, don't sleep with him."
