    If peace of mind, not cost, is your primary concern, insure to the maximum. This will generally be traditional Medicare + a Supplement + Plan D. If cost is an impediment, improvise and take your chances...

    Not only does this apply to Medicare, this also applies to both Life Insurance and Auto (Property and Casualty) Insurance. If you just get the absolute minimum, then file a claim (doctor, car accident, death), there will be unpaid bills.

    Luanne, do you have plan F or G for a supplemental?
    I went on my state teachers retirement supplemental and it seems like I’m getting little bills here and there. No major problems, just regular visits etc.
    We put my husband on Plan G with Anthem so he could have the Silver Sneakers, but if Plan F is better I want it switched

    Here is the policy with Medicare Supplement Part-F. When they say "new people with Medicare", they mean anyone who is newly eligible (65+ or disabled-for-24-months in late 2019). But the last sentence "may be eligible" means you should call Anthem BCBS to find out. Essentially, those who are on Medicare Supplements (like Part-G) who want Plan-F for 2020 is up to the insurer. On the other hand, "Silver Sneakers" may be available on other MedSupp plans, and most MAPD HMO (and some PPO) plans offer it. Personally, I suggest sticking with Part-G, since your premiums will go up if you are able to switch. An agent will let you know, since issue/attained age will determine your premiums :ponder:

    This post is so long (nothing wrong with that with all the info posted here) that I don't know if this was posted before :)
