It’s not the New Brunswick Medicare cards that her family has been waiting for, but Charlotte McGee got some good news on Tuesday.
She said the family has been given a reprieve on the outstanding $30,000 medical bill the province recently sent to a collection agency.
After the story about her family’s nine-month-long wait for Medicare cards was made public on CBC News, McGee got a call from the owner of the collection agency hired to recoup the debt.
She said he promised to put the account on hold. He told her he had no idea about the backlog of Medicare applications in the province.
