How can you make the best choices about medical insurance when you reach 65? There is endless information on the internet and several books cover the subject. I bought most of these books and did extensive research but was still uncertain and undecided. This was the one book that stood out: well-written and covered the subject very well. In addition, the author's clear, straightforward writing style explained the other parts of Medicare and the choices available better than any other source.

This was written in 2008. Many of the rules and reg have changed due to health care reform and is outdated.

What a shock? I expected something.

This "book" is 26 pages long and in really really big print (26 lines per page).

Written at the senility level, it spends half the book letting you know how helpful the book with be and the second half telling you almost nothing.

Do not waste your money.

I was disappointed that the ad for this product does not mention that the cheap price is due to the fact that the document supplied is the 2008 print version, and therefore 'out-of-date'.(Guess that I was naive). I would be interested to know what the latest available 'up-to-date' print of this book is; and, can I exchange the received 'o-o-d' copy, for the 'u-t-d' version, by paying the price difference ?

Didn't love this as it "was more than I ever wanted to know about Plan D" It was helpful however and made me realize I needed an expert to help me make this important discussion Also very important to realize that this is a shame and you must check all you drugs and there costs each year. Would buy this again just for the knowledge of what i didn't know. And to be fair to Patricia Barry---maybe it is just me.
I would like a better summary and less choices and more telling me what to do

Correct book cover, but the text inside was "SAS for Dummies." A rare book binding mistake. Unfortunately, I hadn't opened up the book for months after receiving it, so didn't bother trying to return it to Amazon.

I recently went through enrollment in Medicare and purchased supplement policies. While Social Security and Medicare have much room for improvement, this book and a newer one by the same author were very helpful.

While the coverage of Part D is broad and in-depth, the book was published in 2008, almost seven years old.
Obviously this prevents coverage of ACA related questions...a real problem. The topic is one that needs
explanation but must be edited for current information.
