Medicare and Residency
by Roy and Pattie
We have been full timers for 8 years now. We have changed residency 3 times during that period and now use Florida as our state of residency with American Home Base as our mail forwarding service. Sounds like Homeland Security is going to make our lifestyle even more challenging.
We are now facing a new wrinkle and haven't seen any discussion on this issue. My husband becomes eligible for Medicare in August and, boy, does that add a new set of challenges - Medigap or Medicare Advantage. Also, rates for coverage in Florida are VERY high so are considering another move, possible to South Dakota where rates are lower. Any advice from others who have reached this milestone? And how do we satisfy these new document requirements when we aren't tethered to utility bills, etc?
