I have been hearing lately that the Medicare Advantage plans are going to changed due to Obamacare. I would check carefully before jumping into one of those right now.

Far too many ifs and buts for my liking.

Both DH and I have original Medicare and a Supplement by United of Omaha (not thru AARP). We both also have the Walmart/Humana Part D plan. Since DH receives all of Rx medications at no cost thru the VA he hasn't used any of the $300 deductible. I receive mine by mail order at far less in some cases than the WMT $4/$10 cost. I do however have a $300 deductible. I usually just order all my drugs in January, pay the $300 and I'm good for the rest of the year. Many of my drugs then become "free" with no cost to me.
