I was actually shocked when I did an analysis of my and my wife's health insurance premium costs....$9,000 per year. This is with Medicare. We pay Medicare premiums, Supplemental coverage premiums, dental insurance premiums, drug coverage premiums. This comes to $9,000 without adding in the co-pays, deductibles, office visit fees etc. I understand that this is a low number for some people but it is a lot for me.
I am thinking about going back to an Advantage Plan rather than the Supplemental Plan. For some reason, our masters in DC have decreed that I may not have a Supplemental Plan AND an Advantage Plan. What business is it of theirs who I pay for what is beyond me.
