    Yes, I am one of the lucky ones.

    But with the annual deductibles/20% co-pays and cost of living, as well as helping kids who are struggling, I can see the day coming soon when I might become financially depleted.  It's up to the luck of the draw.

    However, if you read my tag line I tend to carry the weight of others on my shoulders.  I worry about my fellow seniors.

    I receive a couple of invitations from health insurance companies every day.  An avalanche.  I wonder how many are confused like I am into thinking we have to choose one for Part B.  I feel like I'm being pushed to choose a Medigap policy, but researching the providers seems to uncover a lot of discontented insureds.  The elderly are targets for too many schemes.

    Then there are those ads on TV for open enrollment.

    I am slowing down as I age, but even after spending days researching, I am confused.

    Best wishes to you for a peaceful, loving, and fulfilling holiday, earicicle.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      the highly regulated Medigap policies. They cover the 20% that Part B doesn't. A local seniors agency can help you weigh the pros & cons. Different rules apply to the disabled; mostly the disabled can't buy them, so I can't help you here. Except to say ignore all the ads.

      Merry Christmas.

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