In Nov of 2017, I turned 65 and decided (with my family concern, my neighbor's input and a GREAT agent's help) to purchase what is called a MAPD - a Medicare Advantage plan WITH drug coverage included. My agent showed me both the HMOs and PPOs in the area and we looked up all the plans my Doctors/Specialists/Hospitals/etc take. I took a PPO plan from a big 6 (UHC [not AARP like everyone says], Aetna, Humana, the Blue Boys, Cigna, - we don't have Kaiser here) Insurance company with the Hospital Indemnity Plan from Guarantee Trust Life or GTL. The plan costs me about $45 a month and in the time I've had it (a little over a year now) I've collected $1150 dollars! I love my "Aflac for Seniors".
