3. Better is such a personal issue.

I've been on Wellcare for 3 years, it has the lowest out of pocket max of any Medicare HMO for which I qualify. I don't qualify for Medicaid. It includes some dental and glasses benefits plus transportation and no monthly premium, $0 copay for primary care and $15 specialist charges, meds inexpensive - all my usual meds are generic and free. Being an HMO, auths are involved, and that slows things down, and is aggravating, but that's the worst I can say about them and it's really not bad. Every year I review the Medicare booklet I get and every year Wellcare is the overall least expensive plan that is accepted at my primary care. Care Plus also sounds really good, but i can't use them because my primary care isn't contracted with them. That's my very first criteria.
