Your right,and I think that I will keep my insurance just in case of the unexpected health conditions that can occur. When I turn 65 in another 2 years or so I will be on medicare and that cost of insurance will be much less. My wife has medicare and only pays $98/mo. for her supplemental plan and it seems to be pretty good coverage. Thanks for your advice.View Thread
Thanks for your reply and concern about my situation. I will probably keep my insurance and hopefully in 2014 there is supposedly a new system coming that will not discriminate people with preexisting conditions pay such high premiums. Thanks again for your advice.View Thread
Thanks for your info and I am giving this a lot of thought and prayer. I know the chance of having another stroke is greater the older you get but because I'm 62 I can't get medicare or AARP supplement yet so maybe I'll just have to wait until I'm 65. I appreciate your input.View Thread
I had a stroke about 2 1/2 years ago and I'm improving all the time. I have health insurance that cost me $574/ month and I'm wondering if I really need it. My symptoms from the stroke are basically gone and I'm on different medications to control my blood pressure and cholesterol and I feel really good. Do you think I need to continue my insurance, I could find other things to spend the money on?View Thread
