Well, in three months, I will turn 65. Right now, I have Blue Cross Blue Shield for my health insurance. My wife is 5 years younger than I am.....so I will get her a single plan in BC/BS. However, I will be going on Medicare on February 1, 2003.
Here is my question. What do you recommend as a supplemental health insurance plan to go along with Medicare? I know that BC/BS has a Plan 65, but I am sure they are not the only fish in the sea.
Do you think it pays...to get something to take up all the difference...or is it best to take some kind of a deductible or some type of co-pay?
What should I do? Any recommendations?
