Notes from the 11/7/08 Living with Cancer Conference

Joanne  Rawlings-Sekunda from the Maine Bureau of Insurance
  • 800-300-5000
  • They have a staff of 11.
  • 8 of the 11 deal with consumer complaints
  • In general with insurance, the fewer restrictions, the more expensive.

Steve Brakey(sp?) is a Technical Expert from the Bangor SSA office
  • He acknowledged that it's hard to reach the Bangor office by phone. They have one line for all of Maine and Eastern Canada and Quebec.
  • If you call the national 800 number, they're looking at the same computers that they look at in Bangor.
  • If you must call, the best times are Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. 
  • Since I worked in Canada I may be able to get benefits from Canada. I should contact the office in Fredericton NB

I'm not sure who said this:
  • File complaints online - I guessing this is Maine Insurance complaints.
