Two years ago I suffered flash pulmonary edema due to an allergic reaction to a drug I was given in the hospital which caused heart failure and death. After I was brought back to life I spent almost 3 weeks in intensive care. I was worried about the cost of all of this and thought it would have been better if they had let me die. The cost was thousands of dollars but because I had a Medicare Advantage plan, I owed nothing. Recently, I had back surgery and owed nothing. I live pay check to paycheck. I would not survive without it.

I am still working and was out of work for two months due to a hip replacement surgery. I have no other source of income so not being able to work for two months was a big hardship. Thank goodness for Medicare Advantage: no monthly premium and they covered most of my medical expenses. Thanks to my coverage I was not put out on the street for being unable to pay my rent.

Under Medicare Advantage there’s more left over after insurance. I’m finally being able to go to a doctor without paying exorbitant prices and get blood tests or x-rays that we wouldn’t be able to otherwise.
