I agree AW, my mom's sub-insurance pays good! If she hadn't had it this past year she probably would have lost her house and land paying all the bills! It is well worth it even if it is expensive. I have no idea of yalls financial situation but you might be able to get your medicare deductable paid and even get a small amout of food stamps. I have been meaning to see if my mom qualifies. And even if you get on a program that pays all of your medical expenses, don't give up your sub-insurance if you can possibly keep it. I remember that medicare was only going to allow a certain amout of days for rehab then she would have had to went to a nursing home to get it. But with her insurance she had like an extra 200 days or something, can't remember the exact numbers. I was sooo glad we hadn't dropped her sub-insurance!
Also, you guys may qualify for senior commodities. You don't get a bunch of "great" food but it would help fill in. Take advantage of everthing you can get, you deserve it!

The Veteran's has several levels of qualifying and I am on the low end of the totem pole with no wounds or disabilities, so I mainly get preventive care that still costs $15 a visit and $50 for specialty things like eye exams or dermatology.
My insurance paid the first 100 days of skilled nursing after a deductible and we did not even qualify for Medicare for the nearly 2 years that the wife spent in the nursing facility. So that was out-of-pocket except for the first 100 days. I did not even know there was such a thing as extended care insurance back then and probably could not have afforded it anyways since the company had already gone belly up and I was just working part time with no benefits.
The poor wife worked most of her life and got 3 small social security checks and then the $255 death benefit that really helped on the $7000 funeral (NOT).

AW, if you can afford it at all I would advise you getting one of those subs. They pay good. There is a guy that takes care of my mom's insurance that goes all over the state. He doesn't work for just one company. He will look at all the companies and find you the best and most reasonable for you. After that first 100 days Medicare pays of skilled nursing, my mom's insurance will cover another 200 days. And anything that Medicare pays on, it will cover all of what Medicare didn't pay, including deductibles. And don't forget the drug plan. My mom would be up the creek without it!

Ohhh Virgoan, there's nothing to worry about. Nothing happens that God doesn't approve first. He is in control of all! Even if something bad were to happen, God is good and he can take care of all of us.:) But let me tell you this, if nothing happens on the 21st, I can assure you that ONE DAY something big and bad is going to happen and if you don't know Jesus Christ you are going to wish you had of known Him in advance.
Take care.:)

I can't afford it after spending nearly everything I had on her nursing care when my health insurance expired after the company went belly up and I was under-employed.

If it gets to where Medicare or the Veteran's don't take care of me; I will just croak and go be with Jesus and they can put on my stone "He enjoyed life while it lasted". I won't go to be a vegetable. I prefer the QUALITY of life over QUANTITY.

I know what you mean AW. Maybe your sons would help you pay it. That would be better than losing everthing over an illness. But of course that is your business. That's just my opinion. I agree with you on the QUALITY over QUANTITY, for sure!

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.
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.

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.

Good morning AW, have fun shopping with your lady friend. It won't hurt my feelings if you feel like buying me a really nice Christmas gift while you are out shopping. Mr. Obama will bless you the third Wednesday in Jan. with your raise. LOL.

Good morning all, I hope you are having a good day. I sure loved all the comments in a row with no gaps and lots of "nice" comments minus a couple popping in to make silly ones. I really appreciated reading all the great comments.

Woke up to sun shining, birds singing outside my window, went out and threw some bread, crumbled pancakes on the hillside, then filled up the bird feeders. Frost everywhere. I am glad it isn't snow and it is melting off as the sun reaches the shaded areas now. Brrrrr it is cold though. I hate cold weather and wearing all those clothes.

Happy 12-12-12

Well lets put that crap behind us and get to fighting about something woman. Sounds like you woke up in a Disney cartoon this morning. Were the seven dwarfs walking by whistling too?
Keep giving those birds pancakes and you'll have a flock of big fat diabetic birds flying around huffing and puffing ....like humpaburn after he takes a big toke off a doobie.

Now, now Imposter, lets don't do one step forward and two steps back. I don't want to fight anymore.

I didn't see any seven dwarfs, but if I did they could of ate those left over pancakes. I am like Hempburn, I give all leftovers to the birds and critters. I have my very own rabbit that comes to my porch if I haven't put out salad scraps in awhile. I love to see it. Just looks like he is waiting for me to bring something out. I have never seen anything like it. I would miss him if he didn't come out of the tree line once in awhile to let me know he is still alive. He/she? No, I don't know for sure. lol

Have a good day.
