去药店刷医保 美国73岁老人发现自己“被死亡”

“全世界都认为你死了,但是你还活着,这是一种孤独的感觉。”

德克萨斯州的一名老人去药店买药时,柜员告诉她:你的医疗保险已经被停了,因为你已经死了!

这样离奇的事情,却真实发生在73岁的Sherry Ellis的身上。

去药店刷医保 美国73岁老人发现自己“被死亡”

Sherry Ellis, 73, of Magnolia, found out that she had been declared legally dead when she arrived at the pharmacy to collect her medicine prescription, ABC-13 reported on Saturday。 At the counter, she learned that her Medicare had been discontinued, thus rendering her insurance incapable of paying for her life-saving pills。

据ABC-13周六报道,73岁的Sherry Ellis到达药房领取药时,发现自己已经被死亡。药房柜员告诉她,她的医疗保险被冻结了,导致她没办法刷医保买到救命药。

“As far as they‘re concerned, I am deceased,” she told the news outlet, adding that the Social Security Administration made a mistake in linking her social security number with a death certificate。

她告诉新闻媒体说:“就他们而言,我已经去世了。”她补充说,美国社会保障局错误地把她的社保号和别人的死亡证明弄混了。

这个工作失误,严重影响了Ellis的生活。

“With my bank card declined everywhere, I can‘t get gas, I can’t get money for food, I can‘t do anything,” she said。 “I don’t know how long I‘d been dead before I found out。”
