ABC Wednesday - I is for Information

ABC WEDNESDAY - I IS FOR INFORMATION
 
 
 
INFORMATION - INFORMATION - INORMATION
 
 
I am turning 65 in a few months and I have major decisions to make on my healthcare.  I have INFORMATION OVERLOAD.
 
 
Which Medicare Plan do  I take, Plan A, B, C, D, E, F -it's all so confusing.  Do I take A and B or just A, do I need a Medicare Supplement Plan, an Prescription Supplement Plan?
 


The booklet from the Medicare Organization is 148 pages!!!!!!

Maybe if I ordered everything with




Will they accept all the allergy shots I have to take weekly and the prescriptions I take daily. Will I reach that INFAMOUS DOUNUT HOLE some people fall into.


After studying for about a week, I think I have come to my decision for my choice of a supplemental insurance.

I am thankful that we have a choice, it just takes awhile to figure it all out.


ONE THING FOR SURE, I'M GOING TO TAKE EVERY SENIOR CITIZENS DISCOUT I CAN FROM NOW ON.

Then you get to decide every year after that , they keep changing things each year too so it will always be a big decision, oh well such is life Ann, Hugs Marilou

yes, it's a big decision. I THOUGHT the healthcare bill was supposed to do away with the donut hole, but I still have 5 years to figure this out.

It is so hard to wade through everything. I have a ways to go on it but I've dealt with information overload myself on many occasions. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

Ann ~ Being 71, we had to make those decisions several years ago, and I've been very happy with our insurance.

Has covered my cancer journey in 2009, and my gall bladder surgery in 2011. My favorite part is I can go to the YMCA every day and participate in senior exercise and activities, NO CHARGE!

Now I wish the Movie Theaters would give us a discount on every day, not just Tuesday. I told the girl, I'm not just a senior on Tuesday's and sometimes I busy on Tuesday, for goodness sakes. She just smiled, and say "sorry".

Senior discounts are INCREDIBLY appreciated and i use them whenever I can. INSURANCE decisions are ofen difficult, but being INFORMED is critical. Kate, ABC Team

Calling by from ABC Wednesday, indeed take advantage of all senior discounts offered.

Oh, I feel for you. I am the person primarily in charge of decisions for my grandmother, and sorting through paperwork is often mind-boggling. She had made her insurance decisions long ago, and they're mostly okay, but I'm pretty sure there are better options available--though unlikely to be available to her now, at 92 years of age! Good luck in figuring it all out.

EG CameraGirl said...

Hope you sort this out soon, Ann. What a headache! Yep, go for all the discounts you can get!

Suzy said...

wtg Ann. I tell my mom the same thing - take every senior citizens discount!

Insurance is such a maze of chaos! The Medicare plans are awful and I feel badly for older folks who can't read all that stuff and have no one to help them! Governemnt intervention into our health care is the worst thing ever to happen to the USA! I have worked for 30 years in the medical field and all I see is abuse of our system by foreigners who never paid a penny into the system and are collecting our Medicare benefits! I worked with a doctor who's neighbor was also a doctor. They lived in Evergreen in million dollar estates. He said the dr. from India had her parents living with her family and they collected both Medicaid and Medicare! I see that everyday! A young woman complained about paying her $2 Medicaid co pay while opening her Coach bag to retrieve the 2 dollars! UGH!
