I have medicare which they take out almost $100 a month, my additional additional insurance with the medicare is $176. But there are also co-pays with the medical. Dental only cleans the teeth and I still have to pay about half of the visit dental costs about $150 a year. Vision in general is every 2 years, but I have a visual issue, so I get yearly coverage under medical not vision. I put out about $2000 a year above my insurance cost in co-pays, as long as I don't go into the hospital which would cost me even more. <br />
<br />
The presc<x>ription coverage is also out side of the for-mentioned, although partly covered under the insurance, there is co-pays and if you have many presc<x>riptions or meds that fall outside of the approved list, the cost adds up. On medicare they cut you off and required you to pay even more after you reach their approved cap. Sadly as a senior, we reach the cap quickly when I have to pay for the meds. I reach the cap and then fall into their gap by March each year. leaving most of the year on my own. I often stop taking or take less of my meds during this time because I can afford them.<br />
<br />
When I first retired in 2005, I was paying almost $600 a month for insurance, but I had better coverage and paid little out of pocket including my meds, and I had vision and full-dental coverage. In the long run it was cheaper than, that what I have now, when I can least afford it. If I could afford that old policy I would go back to it.

Yes, but I'm not sure how much we pay--it's under my wife's pension. I know before she retired the price varied depending on her contract, ranging from 10% of the cost to 50%. Usually it ran into several hundred a month, I think.

Best Answer

It's rough, huh..I think they should take the Congress &amp; Senate's coverage away until everyone in US has basic coverage..after all, tax payers are paying their insurance coverage.
