California is considering moving to a Single-Payer insurance System. Will other states follow?
The bill does not include any details of how the state would pay for the multibillion program, instead simply declaring “it is the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would establish a comprehensive universal single-payer health care coverage program and a health care cost control system for the benefit of all residents of the state.”
With continually rising health care costs, purchasing a Medigap insurance policy is an important personal decision that requires careful consideration. Every policy of the same type offers the same coverage, regardless of which insurance company you choose. Therefore, it's worth shopping around to ensure that you don't end up paying too much.
The monthly premium is not the only factor to keep in mind, as some companies are notorious for rate hikes, and you may find yourself in an uncomfortable position later on down the road. By enlisting the help of a knowledgeable Medicare supplement insurance broker, you'll get the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you're making an informed decision.

“I’m going to have to start new guys at $15 an hour and it’s going to make it impossible for me to do business,” said Weisberg.
“At the end of the day my guys will be working less, because I won’t be able to afford the increase (in per hour pay),” he added.

When Should You Enroll in Medicare?
I’m About to Turn 65
Eligibility: If you’re turning 65, now is the time to enroll in a Medicare prescription drug plan. Unless you plan on delaying enrollment due to employer coverage or are disabled, you need to enroll in a plan during your Initial Enrollment Period in order to avoid a late enrollment penalty.
For three months before and after your 65th birthday month, you’re eligible to sign up for Medicare. (For example, if you turn 65 on June 13, you will be eligible from March 1 until September 30 of that year.)
