it cost 11k right now for medicare, D and an f-plan in our area for the two of us.
plus dental which ran about 18k last year for both of us .
it is these medigap plans especially the f-plans that have been increasing drastically.. in most states medigap plans are age based and go up every year not only based on age but also when healthcare costs rise.
f plans contain a lot of sickly people in that group compared to other plans where coverage is not as extensive.
don't forget the healthier you are does not mean you will have less in medical costs. it means you may live longer paying more in premiums and other expenses, like hearing aids and glasses which are not covered .
