I am one of the old goats on the forum. I turn 65 in a few months and all year I have been worrying about applying for Medicare. I mean really getting myself worked up about it. What with parts A, B, D and C things got very confusing. Well, I applied on Friday. It was easy. Supposedly my employers policy will cover the required Plan B end. Plan A I have paid into all my working years and now will reap the rewards. Yesterday I got my shingles vaccine. It was easy too. Won't know for a few days if my Medicare application was accepted, but so far so good.
