Joseph L. Matthews wrote that I could return to traditional medicare, Parts A and B with 30 days notice to current manages care plan. He indicated that I would have to pay $96.40 for part B. My wife and I have been paying the $96.40 for over two years to the government while using a managed care plan. It seems to me that we're entitled to a refund of premiums since traditional medicare hasn't been in effect for over two years.
Please explain if this is proper and if not what is the justification for the government to have us continue paying a premium for something that has never been used.
