You're paying $3,600 for the Part B and $4,400 for Part D ???

The average Part D premium is only about $50/month. The most expensive plan available nationwide is $165/month -- about $2,000/yr. How did you end up paying double that?

I'm guessing again here--a wife, who I'm also guessing earned little compared with him over the years so he pays for both of them? Or maybe some sort of gold-plated plan is available if you know where to look? He's also counting Part F (is that W's drug plan?)? Or copays???
