One more thing

My Medicare card arrived today. From Baltimore. Not valid till November, though. It's a cheap paper card, I make more professional looking ones on my PC.

It might be a cheap paper card, but trust me, it is worth it's weight in gold.


I look at myself and wonder how in the hell I made it this far!!

Congratulations, a milestone.

I have far better coverage through my job. But I'm sure when I can no longer work it will be useful.

Hmmm. A&B, or just A? Don't your premiums (or those your employer pays) drop in either case? They should.

Just A. I have not talked with HR yet, but from everything I see on the SSS web site, in order to get the low co-pays my work plan offers, I need to stay in the work plan. There is nothing there or in anything I have received from 47 insurance companies hoping to get my money, any hint that my work plan premium will go down. I'm still 2 months away, so am not in a hurry to find out.

Talking with HR sounds like a good plan. It's complicated.

Yes, we had better coverage through the military (Hubby is retired Navy) but now with SS and Tri-Care for life, we have not paid one dime for Drs or extended hospital stays. It actually costs us more since SS but all that time he spent in the military is paying off now that we are geezers!

Your insurance might change once you get medicare, ours did. Usually private insurers want medicare to pick up the slack.
