I now pay roughly triple the normal Medicare rates, due to the installment sale proceeds from the sale of a business I sacrificed and lived small for many years to build and make successful.

You do realize that even three times the "normal" Medicare premium of $99.90/month (about $3600/year) is only one-third of the $11,000 per beneficiary the Gov't spends on Medicare.

You're still getting a tremendous bargain.
