It has been a productive week and a really good one.
We got back from Tahoe on Tuesday and we were both a little tired. The sun is quite intense at that altitude and it can really dehydrate you. Even in the best of times it usually takes me a day to kinda get back to normal. But it was wonderful.
We have had some issues figuring out some of the Medicare stuff and we now have a clear path. B signed up for the AARP supplemental Plan F. That plan will not be offered after January 2020 ( I think that’s the date) so it’s the most comprehensive for him.
But we did run into some issues with Part D. The issue is one of his medications is a Tier 5 , so out of pocket to start she said, $4900. Then $900 a month. Ahhh, no . This was AARP’s Walgreen program. So here’s what we’re doing. We will continue to pay the Cobra at $700 a month while he needs the Noxafil. That should be for another 4-6 months. Once that’s done we can leave the Cobra behind. I am going to sign him up for Part D thru one recommended on the Medicare website( the Express scripts). But we won’t use it for the NOxafil or any of his anti-rejection drugs till he’s off the Tier 5 ones. I may have him call today to verbally confirm they’re price levels. So all in all, good.
We are in for 3 days of rain so a change in the weather.
