  • 2017 IC Friendly Health Insurance

    Quick question: I'm disabled and have Medicare only. I need better coverage to get nerve blocks, installations, surgeries and to get my medication prices down.

    Looking into a secondary medigap policy - OR - I may drop Medicare and get a Blue Cross PPO (or something similar.) I want the best coverage possible. We know how expensive IC is!

    Which scenario would be better for me? I've been told a lot of doctors won't accept a private Blue Cross PPO plan.
    So confused!

    Talk to an independent insurance agent who will be familiar with what's available in your state and who can help guide you towards a plan that would fit your needs.

      It's difficult to know --- plans can vary from area to area. This time of year there may be information sessions available in your area.

        Thank you for the advice. I have a broker but isn't as knowledgeable as I would like, hence my post. Time to get a new broker and call Social Security about dropping Medicare. Why can't this process be easier?!?!
