    Supplemental insurance to medicare

    jsmartin

      My husband will be eligible for Medicare next May when he turns 65.  We are very confused with what we should do about supplemental insurance.  Any suggestions?  Also when should he apply for Medicare?

          I read hundreds of policies and talked to countless individuals who had been through the same process.  For myself the aarp with the coverage for care out of the country worked best.  the coverage for out of the US cost extra but it does provide a security for you when taveling abroad.  I haven't used the policy in the last two years but still feel comfortable with it.  I apply for my medicare 3 months prior to 65.  That provided a very smooth transition.
