Ah! Therein lies the clue! When the letters says that, take it as confirmation that you will NOT be seeing the consultant. Then phone the secretary and tell her you specifically want to see him and will accept no-one else because you have questions you believe only he can answer adequately.The letters always say ' you may see a member of the team'.
Thanks Jamie, I'm not old enough to know, and right now I would never qualify for Social Security.Sonja, it's Social Security payments that are edging upward gradually to begin at age 67. Medicare is still available for everyone starting at age 65. They are two totally separate government programs.
