I realize this isn't a real RV topic but it is related to RV owners that might be on Medicare or near becoming on Medicare.
I found out the hard way that I will be penalized approximately 33 dollars per month as long as I have Plan D. Providing I opt for Plan D this year. This penalty is government mandated to 'encourage' Medicare recipients to have adequate prescription coverage.
I can remember perhaps once since 2010 that I've had to have a prescription filled. Because of this I've never opted for Plan D because I felt it was a waste of money to have something I don't use.
I forgot to add, this penalty is on top of your supplemental insurance premium.
