Hope someone can give me pointers here, but I will also consider posting this on the larger and more active LBYM board later this week.

I can't find the letter and other paperwork right now, but I am trying to post this request before I forget again.

In early September that my current Medicare plan, one of the PPO plans, is being discontinued at the end of the year so I need to choose another one before the end of the annual Medicare change period (I think the end of date is the first week of December), or they will put me on the default original Medicare.

My main health needs are mental health (psychiatry and medications, plus counseling appointments). Quite frankly, I don't know how/if my benefits have been effected with the passage of Obamacare, or officially The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

When I picked my plan at the end of December 2010 (first full year of Medicare was 2011), it took me probably two months to finally make a decision. I get bogged down with trying to sift through all the information.

Any help or thoughts appreciated. Please share any ideas you may have.
