    Everyone pays for Part B unless you also have Medi-Cal. The max income to be eligible for Medi-Cal is $1386 for one person. It depends which county you are in. SCAN is an Advantage plan with private doctors. I dont have a Medigap because it costs too much per month in my county. I go to doctors who accept Medicare as payment in full or have low co-pays. Anthem is Blue Cross and they probably have an Advantage plan and a Medigap plan.

    I have Anthem, but it's called Amerigroup in Texas.

    I like it.  I've had lots of medical expense (MRI's CT scans, doctors visits, bloodwork, etc.)  and haven't had to pay a dime.  Had a ER experience earlier this year, and with meds, I.V.'s and all, Anthem paid for everything.

    I think ALL supplemental policy are a rip off. We've gone through a breast cancer and a heart attack, without any supplement policy's, and I don't think my deductible and co-pays were any where near as much as the supplemental policy premiums.

    Unless you are not yet 65, it is too late to get it until next October.
