I don’t know if this helps any but I went from receiving Social Security Disability, joined AARP @ 55; at 62 (I think) was put on straight Social & signed up for AARP Supplemental Insurance. The first 2-3 months of each year I have been pay a co- pay for my MS medication of less than $10.00, then 0 co-pay.
