As a soon to be Medicare eligible, and after spending some time looking into it and figuring Medicare Advantage (no additional premium) is the way to go, yes please.

And any other link that meaningfully explains how going for MA is a bad idea. So far, I'm not finding any.

Of course that is your point of view. "Something for nothing" is ALWAYS a great idea (which makes you one of Romney's 47%--per HIM).

Now for the hard question: How much would you be willing to pay out of your own pocket for the "Advantage" portion if it cost you more? Today, the "Advantage" portion is free. In 2014, the feds stop subsidizing Advantage. It goes away unless you are willing to pay extra for it--IF the insurance companies will even offer it. What is it worth to you?
