I'm on disability as a result of CRC and will be automatically enrolled in early Medicare in a few months. I have been told that the only Medicare supplements that will be available to me will be HMO plans. Apparently when you come into Medicare early because of a disability, your options are limited -- at least that's the case here. I will be setting up an appointment to meet with the insurance/billing folks at the cancer center to find out how the change in insurance might affect my treatment options but I have a lot more faith in the people on this forum giving me good advice. Has anyone dealt with these issues and can anyone give me some tips/advice?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
