14. My employers offering of a group medi-gap to retires covers drugs -the
generic is required when available - but many of mine do not have generics. The total "retail" for the wife and myself is about $24,000 where the co-pays are about $6,000 per year combined total for both the wife and myself.

There are no medi-gap options (like "C" or "F" ) in the offered employers plan - but it covers about 25% more than what outside medi-gap policies cover (a reflection of the buying power of the Met).
