So, someone flagged 1poorlady about Medicare Part C. Not that we're eligible yet, but 1poormom is on Medicare and has dental issues (i.e. bad teeth, but she still has the teeth). She was told Part C covers it. Mom was already on Medicare before she got dementia, and just had A and B. So I never really thought about it. Looking up Part C, it appears to be where you can get "Medicare Advantage" policies. I've been warned seven ways from Sunday to avoid Medicare Advantage plans because they generally cost more, and are more restricted, than traditional A and B with a medi-gap policy.

Just thought I would re-verify that this is generally the case. It's just a money-maker at the expense of the senior citizen, yes?

Asked this on the Discord, but didn't get any nibbles.
