Just got an emall from a fellow retiree telling me that under the new health care plan the Rates for Medicare Part B which are $96.40 /mo. now will increase in 2012 to $104.20/mo in 2013 to $120.20 / mo and in 2014 to $247.00 / mo.That's over double. Has anyone else retired heard this?
Tell me it ain't so! I can't hardly afford to go fishing now.
