If you are serious, part D varies from state to state. The best plan I could get was with Walmart and Humana. Humana will send my prescriptions to me, or I can pick them up at Walmart. There is a co-pay until I hit $440 which is my deductible. I only take blood pressure pills, and antibiotics to use when I go to a dentist (infections can get into my knee after total knee replacement) and don't usually go over $440/year.Talk to me about part D as I need at least 20 bottles of insulin every 90 days.
Alex, go to https://q1medicare.com/PartD-Search...d&utm_medium=textlink&utm_campaign=TopLeftBox Enter your state, and it will show you available plans. I chose the less expensive one ($17/month). That costs more than my average prescription costs, but one never knows when you might need an expensive medication. In Alaska, there were only a few plans to chose from, and a lower deductible costs far more. By the way, payments for B (mine is 134/month) and D come out of your social security if you already are enrolled. The supplemental insurance (I use USAA) are also $134/month, and it is billed separately. It covers the co-pay from B, and whatever Medicare doesn't cover.Going to apply for Medicare in 2 months - Need to learn about Part D too.
Something else we have in common. Aren't we lucky?Thinking about how clueless I am about this discussion about part D reminds me how fortunate I am that my wife is so good about handling this sort of thing that I don't even bother looking into it on my own. Better yet, she actually enjoys keeping up with this stuff, which is nearly unimaginable to me.
Yup, money is money. Take it when you need it or can use it best.so you collect the same amount over your (well, an average) lifetime.
I plan to live for my entire life. I took my money as soon as I could. It's now mine to spend.know your date of death.
Amen. Yet another reason I like Tom.enjoy life.
I think it's birthday.Yes, but is interesting how those payments work. My wife gets her payment on the 2nd Wednesday of a month, I get mine on the forth Wednesday. It doesn't seem to be based on SSN, at least her's starts with a 5, amd mine starts with a 2. We both signed up at the same time, but she initiated the call to SS, so maybe that is the case.
