I retired six+ years ago at age 57. The only thing that costs me a lot of money is individual health insurance ---- $1450/month for coverage on just myself at age 63.__________________________________We have fantastic health insurance through my husband's former employer and were worried about what would happen if that went away.Well, we are both now on Medicare and I had my first physical last week. I got three shots in addition to what they call a "wellness" visit (no longer calling it a physical).I will get an ekg, bone density, etc. etc. All this with no charge and a monthly payment of less than $200 for each of us.I have no idea what the coverage would be if we got really sick.I have had some health issues in the past that could become chronic.But, so far we've been happy with Medicare.My own private doctor who gave me a physical every year did not go into detail as much as the doctor who now takes care of me and who accepts Medicare.
