Just a few more days and I can apply for Medicare! Who would have thought I’d ever be so happy to turn 65? By the time Medicare starts, I will have paid 12 months of about $1,000 per month for health care, with really not so great coverage so that makes Medicare look pretty good. With both our Medicare and the supplements, together we will be paying less than the $1,000 per month I was paying. Vince has had Medicare for 8 months and he’s been really happy with it. At least I’ll be able to carry health care coverage with me when I visit family in Missouri and Louisiana. I’ve not been worried, but a bit concerned when visiting MO, knowing I didn’t have health care coverage once I left Texas. I figured if I got sick or hurt in Louisiana, I could drive the 30 or so miles back to Texas for treatment.
Once I get 65, that will be old enough . . healthcare has been a huge concern for me since Vince retired. I guess I need to get a couple of years older so I can start getting Social Security then . . I think it’s age 66.5 when I’ll start getting Social Security .. then I can stop getting older! 🙂
I don’t feel old. Speaking of old, my knee is much better. I don’t know if it’s being off sugar, or the 18 pound weight loss, probably a combination of both. It isn’t perfect yet but I can walk without limping horribly.
