Dear Customer,

The traditional medicare is the best choice because many insurance companies have much tighter restrictions in qualifying services than the traditional governmental Medicare. I learned that from some service providers. Therefore, it is suggested that you sign up with Medicare Part B.

Please contact the SSA and make sure that you notify them and make sure you sign up for Part B.

"If you have questions or need assistance with enrolling, please visit or contact Social Security. 1-***-***-****"

Also, please make sure you contact VA and make sure your enrollment with VA is taken care of.

The website links below are for your further information. Please feel free to follow up.

Regards,

Fiona
