Medicare has published it 2010 version of Medigap plans. Visit the LRO websitehttp://www.lucentretirees.com/benefitsteam
and at the top there's a link
to clink on it to download. Plans M and N are new this year. They
are said to offer good value, because their monthly payments are lower
but there is a co-payment. But each individual has to fit their own needs.
Also, go to the State Help link on the web site for information about
"SHIP" - these are Medicare-funded state agencies to help individuals with their
medicare questions (including Medigap). They vary from state to state, but
they are set up to answer individual questions and provide information about all the plans
available in your state.
Post what you did and your decision to help others this year.
