Medicare Part B


Q. I am a retired postal worker (mail handler). When I turned 65, I enrolled and am currently paying for Medicare Part B. I also am paying premium for my Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage monthly. Should I discontinue Part B since I have coverage under Blue Cross/Blue Shield for medical?

A. It’s entirely up to you. Before making up your mind, do a cost benefit analysis.
