Yes Packer, all the Plans change from year to year...so much so, that I call it "Mutating". All those little Holes that appear in your coverage (pay CLOSE attention to your RX coverage) did not used to appear with such regularity. Used to be, a Plan stayed pretty much the same from year to year, with only minor changes - nothing huge. Not anymore. Every year deserves a THOROUGH review of your Plan, and a re-examination of how well it fits your (family's) needs.

Cali: You were LUCKY. We had several Chevy Chevettes in the office I worked at in L.A. and they were all BEASTS. NO power, they all overheated and boiled-over if the temp hit 80 degrees (not hard to do, there)...they were a design worse than the Vega. Even the Pintos we had were trouble-free, by comparison. My Pinto even had A/C :)

My first NEW car was a Chevette and that little thing was a trustworthy little guy. No air, stick - several hot trips to Vegas in it. But my first car was a green Camaro.

Blue Cross is the "Cadillac" plan. The rest are Chevy Chevettes.

Just some more appreciation of Blue Cross Basic (we all know they DO get a lot of money from the p.o. and the insured monthly). I went into urgent care about 3 weeks ago because I gouged myself with some rusted grass/rock edging. I had forgotten that this visit would still only cost my co-pay ($30). Office visit, Dr. exam and a shot came to submitted charges of $234 and after my co-pay and Blue Cross pay out, they received $208. The urgent care received enough for the 15 minutes of labor I required there.

"Bernie Sanders says I can only use my FEHB plan to cover cosmetic surgery.

So, I will also be turning 65 this year in Dec. From what I am gathering, if I have BCBS basic and Medicare A and B, I should be all set, right?. What about the wife? She doesn’t turn 65 till the following June. Does she also need to sign up or is covered under me? When would her coverage start?

Thank God I have Blue Cross Basic AND Medicare Part A & B. SURPRISE!! I just wound up in hospital again, with a very serious Event. Left my checkbook at home. At least my family and bank will once again NOT be drained by uncovered medical expenses. This one is serious folks, so I will say GOODBYE for now, and will catch up with you all in the future. I do expect to survive, but the rigors of keeping up with you all on these boards will be beyond me for the next few months. I will return when I am able. Best wishes to all....you know who you are.

Again: enjoy your good health if you still have it, and DON'T SKIMP ON INSURANCE!!! This <<<< is no joke. Take care of yourselves. hope to see you all again someday.

So, last year Blue Cross reimbursed me $50.00 a month to my account for Medicare.

This year so far they have sent me $189.60 for January and $189.60 for February. .I think once we reach $600.00 it will stop but I wonder why the change?
