We're early voting tomorrow, because we won't be here on election day. I'm looking stuff over again. There is no worry about Democrats sweeping the races in Hawaii. In Ohio, Kay of Kay's Thinking Cap is working hard for Obama, and the Democrats there are doing great work.
We just signed our revised Medicare coverage, and we find our rates have gone down substantially! We had two options: one that covered glasses and dental, but we are satisfied with what we have now, so we chose the cheaper of the plans. If they offered coverage for hearing aids, we'd take it, but they only cover tests.
We have the Kaiser plan , which received a five star (highest) rating from Medicare. I think it's better than HMSA, the other big plan available in Hawaii, because they have the means to keep costs down in ways that don't injure patients. We also are entitled to the services of Group Health, when we are in Seattle.
With HMSA docs can overbill and often do. There is no incentive for that at Kaiser, where the docs are on salary. I have been quite pleased with my Kaiser care, and they did a fine job for my mother in law over many years. She lived to be 97, and she never had serious complaints about Kaiser.
So to end on a fashion note: Check out this spiffy little doggie in Aguas Calientes, Peru.
