Also, you can get in person help figuring out what you qualify for/what is the best prescription plan for you, etc by contacting SHIP....State Health Insurance Assistance program.  Advantage plans vs supplements & costs.  They may also offer group classes as well.

For Illinois (where it is called Senior Health Insurance Program - but it is open to all Medicare beneficiaries- not just Seniors)

Thank you Helper!

I survived the 80's, drug rehab, twins, and divorce. None of those things were as stressful as the disability process.
