From comments:

“long story short the lady didn’t have a clue & told my wife if we didn’t pay the annual fee by the deadline, we’d lose our insurance. Now I’ve got to get all my documentation together & write a letter to my worthless congress member.

Still not enough undeclared/unwon wars to get it right.
