Complaint / review text:
United American general agent Michael L, instructed by my wife miriam l, came to our house on 9/15/05 to sign her up for medicare supplemental insurance. My wife miriam is disabled and Medicare recommended this insurance company. Mr. L signed her up and questioned me about my healthinsurance. He said he could lower the monthly rates for health insurance if I would sign with his company. He explained all of the great benefits of this health insurance, "the best health insurance" for self employed like myself.
We carefully listened at him, and understood that this health insurance would be a good thing to have, that way we would both have the same health insurance. He signed me in, awaiting tests from a physical and I cancelled my other health insurance and started paying premiums of 280.00 a month. On 6-09-07, I could not take a sngle breath, without feeling that my lungs were going to collapse, I could not walk and my sick wife miriam told me to call the hospital. I called united american 0n 6-11-07 because the breathing was just not there! I asked them what hospital to go and they said Charlotte Regional (the only one in this small city).in the emergency room, after several diagnostic testing a Blood Clot was found on my lung, and was not letting blood flow to my heart. I was immediately admitted.
