In Reply to: Can anyone explain Medicare?? posted by steveVa on November 30, 2018 at 19:06:25:
Why don't you call them and let them explain it? I've had Medicare for a few years and the past two years have been pretty useless, since Owebama care was initiated, -coincidence??? when it came to what they covered. I would go to my doctor for a routine visit and then get a bill for a $100 office charge! Yesterday, fed up with the daily calls from a Blue Cross pharmacist about changes for 2019, I spent 2 hours on the phone with BCBS on making changes to my plan. I switched to their Medicare Advantage Plan, as I now only am on one prescription medication, and it will only cost me $2-$3 plus I will now see a $75 per month increase in my SS income because of less being taken out for Part A, Part B, and Part D. This new plan is basically an HMO plan and has a lot of 0 deductibles, and basic out of pocket expenses. Ask me agin in a year and if it is worth it.
