Among the many decisions that retirees face, choosing a provider for supplemental Medicare insurance can be one of the more important. Your PCC Retiree Network has been asked by a recently retired colleague for advice about making this choice. This short survey is specifically seeking your help with this subject. In responding to these questions, please remember that the Retiree Network web page is a ‘public page’, so although personal medical circumstances may influence your decision on this subject, you don’t want to share specific personal medical information here.
Below this post after the ‘share buttons’ you’ll see the phrase, ‘leave a comment’ (or if others have already added comments you’ll see ‘2 comments’). Click on that phrase to read the comments others have made and to get a ‘comment box’ to add your comment.
Please tell us first whether you chose a plan offered through PERS or opted for a private plan. Then tell us who the provider is and/or what they call the plan (e.g., Kaiser, ‘Senior Advantage’).
What factors most influenced your decision (e.g., cost of coverage, convenience of premium payment options, etc.)?
Finally, tell us briefly what pros and/or cons you perceive with your choice and how you would rate their handling of your claims?
