ICD will love this budget proposal...
What with the cuts to Medicare/caid and Social Security it's bound to ingratiate Trumpzilla to ICD even more!
Sic em ICD!
Speaking of Medicare...I had to enroll The Woman in medicare this year. I don't know how they calculated The Woman's age but they messed up somehow cause The Woman is only 29! But, whatever. I couldn't convince them of that so enrolled she was.
So far as I can tell with the copay's on doctors visits, specialist visits, and drugs I'm not sure it's going to be nearly as good as the private insurance she had.
And...it is not an option to enroll. If you want to cover what medicare would cover a private insurer would pick up the balance...something like that. Otherwise, you're forced onto medicare whether you want it or not. Whether it's financially better for you than your previous private insurer or not.
