I obviously want to keep benifits RECEPTION Social Security , but Medicare has really messed my enrollment in TRICARE Prime.

I have Medicare Part "A", but rejected the "B". Now what I want to enroll in TRICARE Prime, I have to pay a premium ad wait unti next year before it can join.

It was much easier before I collected Social Security , because he was enrolled in Prime before and just pay quarterly premiums . Then when I started collecting Social Security , who was expelled from TRICARE Prime, because I did not know what he was doing at that time and discharged in the " B" of Medicare.

So, if I could , I would prefer something completely get rid of Medicare if I can , so you can re-qualify for TRICARE Prime and pay that much for a month.

Can it be done ?

Thank you.

I think if you go with TRICARE, you will find that you must have Medicare Part B to qualify for TRICARE. Personally I think it really would benefit from collecting Medicare Part B , because when combined Parts A / B Medicare with Tricare , there is little co - payment or additional amounts to pay for medical services . Please contact your Tricare office to see what benefits you get with the combination. You will be surprised.

I do not think this is possible. Most insurance companies will not allow it . They sell you additional insurance to cover what Medicare does not cover, but they will not offer full coverage, because it is so expensive that hardly anyone could afford .

OK , Social Security and Medicare are two separate programs, so of course you can collect SS and have no health insurance. That's not a problem.

I have no idea what "TRICARE Prime" is, but whatever it is , you have to resort to it . Somehow sounds like Medicaid , a welfare insurance and social security benefits could mean you have too much income to qualify.
