In the past I have read on different websites and blogs on what I call horror stories about packages being lost or even been dropped off the end of the earth, which is not true. When a package is late getting to a buyer, most likely the package was accidentally misrouted. Don’t be upset about it. I know it is easy for me to say this, think about all of the people, employees and machines that handle your package. When it happened to me, this is what I did, I took a big deep breath of air, exhaled it, then went into the kitchen and drank a big cold glass of ice water.
As an ebay seller, back on June 8th, 2011 I sold an item to an ebay buyer. On June 9th, 2011, I sent the package out via Priority Flat Rate Padded Envelope with a Delivery Confirmation Number, the U.S. Postal Service Sort Facility received this package on this date. Then on June 17th, 2011, through ebays message system I received a message from the buyer telling me that they have not received their package. On June 20th, 2011, via snail mail I sent a copy of the buyer’s message [to me], and shipping label with the delivery confirmation number to the U.S. Postal Service Sort Facility that handles my packages that I ship out. On June 22nd, 2011, as backup I also sent a copy of the buyer’s message [to me], and shipping label with the delivery confirmation number to my Senator. On June 30th, 2011, I received a letter from the Manager at the Post Office Operations Center, saying that the package was in route to the buyer. The package was delivered to the buyer on July 2nd, 2011.
On September 8th, 2010 McCormick Ambulance Service picked me up from a business with my electric wheelchair, and transported me to the hospital. Later that night when I was released from the hospital. I was able to go to my residents in a taxi with my electric wheelchair. Then on October 2nd, 2010 McCormick Ambulance Service picked me up from my
residence, but would not allow me to bring either my cane or my manual wheelchair to the hospital with me. Later that night when I was released from the hospital, I was not able to return to my residence because I did not have my cane or my manual wheelchair with me. The hospital had to call Gerber Ambulance Service to transport me back to my residence. The bill that I received from Gerber Ambulance Service, was in the amount of $1,054.25. I submitted the bill to Medicare and my medical insurance for payment. MAXIMUS has explained to me that because it was not a non-emergency ambulance transport back to my residence, Medicare and my medical insurance does not have to pay the bill that I received from Gerber Ambulance Service.
