    That would be my first instinct. Regular Medicare allows you to go anywhere in the country, to see any doctor, to pursue any treatment. Given your situation, I wouldn't limit my options. Plus, does M. Advantage even try to sign up the disabled? I wouldn't risk it. These are FOR-PROFIT companies. Why would they want to take you on? Their only margin is DENYING you care. They want the healthy 'olds' to sign up at 65 and rake in $$$ from 'em while they don't have any expenses.

    Wouldn't be my choice. There is no M. Advantage here, so I've never even had to consider it. But I would never consider it. When I had a brain tumor back in Hawaii, I flew to NY & CT for consults. If I had decided on surgery, I was gonna have it at the best hospital in NYC. Not with the surgeon who gave me the willies back home in Honolulu.

    Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.
