Quote:House Democrats Press Conference: Medicare at 50



I wish I could have kept the insurance I had instead of having to change to Medicare. You have no choice. You have to go on Medicare!
And another thing, the 2 percent raise Social Security got, well they raised the deduction they take out for Medicare by $23!

DH is 65 and he signed up for Medicare (because it's required), but he's not using it. He's insured through his employer.
I just asked him about this and he said he's "using" (not literally) Medicare for Part A (hospitalization) because the work policy has a high deductible, but he isn't required to buy Part B (regular doctor visits) because he uses his work insurance instead. He has prescription coverage at work, but it's part of that high deductible.
