Note on changing your Medicare Plans: If you are switching back to Traditional Medicare FROM a Medicare Advantage Plan, you will likely NOT be able to get your Medigap (Medicare Supplement) plan back, because you will have to go through underwriting (so the plan will be very expensive, or you may not qualify for coverage at all). Beneficiaries are exempt from underwriting for Medigap supplement plans ONLY during their 1st 6 months of Medicare eligibility (and not at all if you initially choose a Medicare Advantage plan, because you can't have a supplement when you also have a Medicare Advantage plan).
This is what we call "Medicare Advantage's Dirty Little Secret". Most people, even those in healthcare, don't know these rules. PLEASE avoid a COSTLY mistake.
