Hello fellow Fools

My father (DD) recently asked my opinion on AARP offerings for United Health Care Medicare (supplements?). He turns 65 next year, and is trudging ahead on this, financial planning be darned. (I wish he'd wait till 70).

I admit-- I am out of my element. But this seems to be something worth becoming educated on--both to help him now, but also help him navigate this as I am his designated health care proxy (should anything happen to him in the future).

Can anyone either point me to a good resource to understanding the myriad options out there in terms of Medicase, SSI, 'part b', etc; or maybe post a primer on this stuff (apologies if that is already on this forum-- search is not intuitive at TMF).

Thanks in advance!
