Yes I am on Medicare. Do not have the Advantage plan.

Luckily I haven't had to use it except for once a year check ups.

Haven't replaced the Part D plan because I don't use pills. Figured it would keep going up and up in cost - it will. That was what caught my attention in the article.

Better to put the money aside, essentially self insure, than to hand it to the insurance co's.

The alternate plans are described on different sites. I'll post one that does a comparison later.

It's a quagmire to examine the plans. One does this and the other does that. I'm accustomed to reading detailed info. Have read and written legislation in the past. But reading and comparing the plans puts me to sleep.

They are discussing doing away with the Advantage plans.

Take care.
