It doesn’t get any cheaper as you go along, so the sooner you decide to get it — and then actually buy some — the better off you’ll be in the long term.
There are plenty of places to look for info before deciding to contact the insurance guy or gal. One of the best sources is located at Medicare.gov.
We’re going to do it this time. Really.
