How much do Medicare supplements cost?
I'll qualify for Medicare in a few years (I think). I've been paying for my own private health insurance and have assumed that when Medicare kicks in I'll save some money. I know Medicare isn't exactly free, and one must have some sort of supplemental policy, but still, I thought the total would be less than the amount I pay now.
However, I was talking to someone the other day who is 70 years old and pays over $400 a month for his supplemental policy. Do they really cost that much??
