So now I am immediately faced with a new dilemma, as this is the year of my 65th birthday. Yes, that is right. I now need to choose a decent Medicare supplement. As we have just been talking about the cost of retirement, it is fresh in my mind that financial planners state that the biggest portion of their dire predictions about our income needs is based on the continually rising cost of healthcare. It therefore makes sense to me that my health coverage should be as good as available, within a cost that makes sense. I am also leaning toward choosing Blue Cross, just because my providers are happiest with their coverage and tell me that they are processing claims much more quickly than in the past. The website I found most helpful was at medicare.gov. It explains medicare insurance and helps you decide on a plan. Any other thoughts out there. Please comment…we are all ears.
