Getting back to Medicare costs...I wonder if I am doing the right thing. My Medicare fees are all over the place and high! First, I have an auto 20% copay, unless Medicare decides they are not going to cover certain procedures and my copay seems to be higher.

2007 - $160.90 deduction
2008 - $192.70
2009 - $221.00
2010 - $110.50 (RMDs were suspended 2009)
2011 - $199.80

these numbers are so inconsistent. Certainly they will go up over time.

I also have a supplemental with my company with UH..covers what Medicare does not (sometimes, I cannot figure what). Good on hospital coverage. 20% copay...after first $300. $75 copay on drugs (90 day), some drugs are only $5 per month or $15 for 90 days. Some drugs are very cheap and cost copay only around $10.80. I also have vision. Monthly cost in the $80.++ neighborhood.

Am I ripping myself off?
