sophie,

You have put your finger squarely on a dilemma we are all apt to face. I had a similar problem with my 89 year old mother only a few months before she died last year when she somehow got the notion to cancel her Medicare part B coverage out of the blue. It led to a very unpleasant and exasperating argument.

The story may be only anecdotal, but the problem is becoming universal. I have no idea how to even begin to solve it.

Same here, and especially sorry that it had to be overlaid with a potentially avoidable financial issue.
