Well in that case the cost you have is reasonable. AARP supplement for plan C are in the range of $200 a month. Contrary to what most people believe the Medicare fees & premiums seniors pay cover less than a quarter of the total cost - and in the case of a Plan C medigap plan that covers 20% of the actual costs plus of course overhead and insurance company profit.

While nobody likes the cost, I do not see long lines of people hoping for second tier medical care which is less expensive.
