Pacemaker cost

Does anyone know of a Medicare plan that would cover the 20% cost above plans A & B?

I'm not totally sure I quite understand your question but... Plan F which is "medi-gap" or supplemental coverage. I have it through UnitedHealthCare and paid $0 for my last two CRT-D implants

Now is a good time to be asking. It's is open enrollment band yiu can jump on a plan without baby concern for pre existing conditions .

I think that window closes on Dec 7th

I have regular Medicare and UHC Plan F supplement.  The total cost for my pacemaker and surgery April 2018 was $52,000 and I paid nothing.  What Medicare didn't pay my Plan F did.  My monthly premium is $224 and that's all I pay.  I also have a Part D drug plan.  

If you are in the US...

...Go see your nearest Armed Srvices recruiter.  Sign up.  Stick around for enough years to retire and at age 65 a plan called "Tricare for Life" kicks in that covers all the deductibles and co-pays.

Not recommended for the faint of heart.


Enough years

If they'll guarantee me "enough years", sign me up! šŸ˜€

  sorry, you have a PM/ICD.  Don't medically qualify.

That's discrimination against a minority group! The fact that I'm 67 now has nothing to do with it!
