Costly....But No Option
As any one knows who frequents this web site, I will be retiring at the end of January 2013. I will be appying for medicare, purchasing a supplement, purchasing a drug program, and since my wife does not have coverage, and some on going medical issues, purchasing for her a "cobra" program until she qualifies for medicare in a few years.
The cost of just her coverage will be about nine hundred dollars a month. My cost will be about three hundred dollars a month....you can do the math.
Do I continue working until she can apply for medicare....I don't think so....can I afford the costs......barely.....do I want to work until I drop....I don't think so.....life is about choices....not a happy camper....but we will survive.....that's life.....that's what all the people say....riding high in April.....shot down in May....
