I have too many friends that sign up for these bottom end plans, brag about how cheap they are and then piss and moan about the cost of simple medical procedures. I like my part G just fine.

I too, like my plan F. No co pays, no out of pocket, no deductible, nothing. Mrs. Flash has had 3 major operations, 2 on her back, and we haven't paid a cent.

And they're targeted to poor people who want the extra $114 a month added to their social security and meals delivered.
These companies aren't in the charity business. They make their money one way or the other and definitely at the person's expense.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual."

I love how they fail to disclose the fact that your hospital and doctor may not be in the plan as they refuse to discount their professional fees. Two years ago the major hospital in my area opted out of all Medicare Advantage plans. The hospital owns 90 percent of the physicians practices. Lots of angry patients in the clinics.

What about the postcard you are supposed to fill out and mail back? Single sided, just fill out your name, address and birthdate and drop in a mailbox. Goes to a post office box with some generic name. And it’s free postage too!
Sure, I’ll fill out my personal information that is visible to anyone in the USPS and sent it to a post office box address even though I didn’t initially contact them. What could go wrong with that?
