Re Martha Backer’s Dec. 3 letter, Change Medicare: I wish Ms. Backer would share her parents’ secret. My husband and I, retired teachers, had no choice but to prepay for our Medicare. In fact, we are still paying for it and have a secondary insurance plan as well as hefty co-payments for doctors’ visits, etc. We certainly do not get picked up by anyone, we drive ourselves to all appointments.
What are we doing wrong?
