Anyone really happy on traditional Medicare? [View all]

One of the happiest days was getting my card in the mail. Its nice to go to see a Dr and not pay $60 upfront co-pay. I can't afford a Medigap.

Anyone else so happy with Medicare? Thank you Dems

ETA several Drs warned me about Advantage and keep traditional. I know some here just love their MA plans, that's great, but I'm following my Drs" advice
