While this is good news, there is a caveat. A Medicare Advantage plan beneficiary recipient must also pay his Medicare Part B premium. According to a WSJ article from earlier this year - "Medicare’s trustees projected Monday that the standard monthly premium in 2020 for Medicare Part B, which covers doctor visits and other types of outpatient care, will increase by $8.80 a month to $144.30. A final figure is expected in the fall.
The increase comes after the Part B premium for most people rose modestly in 2019 to $135.50, from $134 in 2018."

True. I posted that article also. But it is cheaper than not having any insurance in the long run and our SS increase will cover the increase in Medicare.
