"--fleg, who'd rather continue to pay what he's paying than to pay lower Medicare premiums and face the increasing wait times as docs drop out of Medicare in growing numbers "

My insurance dropped from $360/ about the same when I went on Medicare....

now..i went from a private BC/BS individual policy with 2000 deductible, 200 deductible on drug plan.....and 30% copay up to 5K.....


no deductible....Medicare..for about 320/month including cheapier Walmart drug plan (200 deductible) . only med I take is 10 buck a quarter generic.

My doc still takes Medicare....same for the heart doc.....

So far so good....

I'm paying about the same, but will have no deductible. Just got done with stress test and echo-cardiogram...I suspect that would have cost me $2000 before I turned 65. Now, the heart doc is probably $150/visit or zippo.

On a diet so I don't have to visit too often. Need to lose 15 lbs. Going to be eating lots of salads and frozen low cal dinners. I eat out too much and enjoy it....
