We've been undecided about whether to leave the Blue Shield of CA group PPO coverage my wife kept when she retired from San Mateo County in CA and get level F Part-D coverage. Coverage for my wife and I (73 & 76) costs about $1000 a month, and combined with Medicare seems to cover just about everything except dental and routine eye exams. To complicate the decision, I had a pituitary adenoma resection in 1987 that resulted in hypopituitarism. An endocrinologist tires to keep my labs within normal range so prescribes quite a few drugs, the cost of which would be about $1000 a month if we paid more than the small copay. When I've checked into it before, it seems very complicated because of the drug formularies. I'm unsure whether Part-B of Medicare ( which we signed up for) or Blue Shield pays for that medicine. db
