At first i had a Medicare Advantage plan through Humana.
It did not cost anything extra beyond what was already being deducted from my SS. But, it had high co-pays and high out of pocket.
And then I had a stomach ulcer, that went undiagnosed for months, until I just about bled to death.
Three days in the hospital, 4 units of blood, and other medications. A colonoscopy and an endoscopy to find the site of the ulcer.
Bottom line was very extreme. Luckily the hospital wrote off over $20,000. But I still had to pay $100/month for almost two years to pay off the bill.

Lesson learned - cheaper is not always better.
2400 out of pocket for something that severe. You’re blessed.
