Good morning. I'm running a little late today. Had a couple of phone calls and I had to deliver my Gems of Wisdom on mt hometown Topix. Hehehe. That is good news about your raise. You will be able to buy two more burgers off the dollar menu than I will. LOL. It must be nice to be rich. Lol.<quoted text>
My check went up by $18.00. I guess that I am wealthier than you, LOL. I don't get a crazy check, though. I hear that it is easier to get than physical disability. Guess the government knows that it is driving people crazy. However, Part B Medicare is going up next year, so that takes care of the big raise. I have kept a Medicare Supplement insurance policy. Costs a lot, but it pays for all deductibles, 20% copay, etc. I was really glad that I had it last spring and summer or I would be up shizz creek without the paddle. Medical bills are SO expensive. One of the medications that I needed to cure a rare infection cost $1600.00 a week. I needed 2 weeks' supply. By the time the second week came around, though, I only had to pay $77.00 because I fell into the"catastrophic" category. It would have been a catastrophy if I had to pay the entire amount. Either that or plant myself 6 feet under.
I know that medicine is high. I'm glad most of mine now have generics. I'm also glad I had some insulin in stock from when I had company ins. that kind is about $160.00 per bottle. For sure some of the medicine you take, secondary ins. is a must.
