In my work with Medicare, one of the questions people ask me often is which plan is the best one. That’s not something I can answer, because picking a plan is an important and personal decision. Each person has a unique set of priorities. How do you weigh your options? Now’s the time to think about what matters to you, and pick the Medicare plan that meets your needs.

Medicare Home Health: Medicare Supplement Insurance
For all others, the standard Medicare Part B monthly premium will be $115.40 in 2011, which is a 4.4% increase over the 2010 premium. The Medicare Part B premium is increasing in 2011 due to possible increases in Part B costs. If your income is above $85,000 (single) or $170,000 (married couple), then your Medicare Part B premium may be higher than $115.40 per month. For additional details, see our FAQ titled: “2011 Part B Premium Amounts for Persons with Higher Income Levels”.
How Do I Decide What Medicare Stand
To make it easier to understand, I do assessments for my clients using Medicare.gov to see which drug plan will cover all their drugs most cost effectively, comparing their current carrier to other plans being offered in 2013. Sometimes it may show that my client should stay on their current plan and perhaps change to mail order; other times, because of the difference in cost as well as the specific formulary and tier levels for each plan, it may indicate the need to change their drug plan.
Daily Kos: IMHO, Obama needs to win reelection and then GET OUT OF DC for the lame duck!
We basically have a chance to hit the reset button on this whole sordid mess. No more months long extensions, no more tea bagger blackmail. A GOOD grand bargain, one that is both magnificent in style and ambitious in scope, is one achieved from a position of strength, not weakness. A GOOD grand bargain is something to be proud of, not settled for. So please Mr Obama, get out of town. Or hide in the situation room. Hmm, Christmas and New Years in Hawaii. Mele Kalikimaka!! Once the Bush tax cuts have expired and the sequestrations have kicked in, negotiations will take place at warp speed, because the pressure from constituents will be immense. But this time they will proceed from a position of strength, not weakness. The R’s in Congress know they own this mess and that it must be fixed quickly! Good and deserving people will be made whole again because we all know that no agreement in DC ever happens without taking place RETROACTIVELY.
