Default Making the jump to medicare.

With my Kaiser jumping up 25% in Jan I've made the decision to go on medicare. It's hard to say goodbye to those who have helped me for over 25 years, but the economics dictate the change. Hope this works as well.

Hi Pumpdoc,
Can you opt/qualify for the Kaiser senior advantage plan-combo of Kaiser and Medicare?
I works well for me. Blessings, Pat

Not sure, I'm only 54 and they've said before I was diagnosed with ALS that because of my history, and because of my past cancer that they wouldn't cover me once my Cobra was up. I will be checking though.

Kaiser's Medicare supplemental rules are looser than their full coverage rules. I would definitly double check.
