I have Keystone 65 Preferred which will cost $248 in 2013
I can get Keystone 65 Select for $56
I know it has some higher co-pays
But what else are they hiding for such a big difference in price ????????

I'm not familiar with those plans. Please provide your zip code, and I will research them.

thanks,

Looks like I found it. They are Blue Cros Blue Shield HMO Medicare Advantage plans available in Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery County with Philadelphia and Bucks county residence receiving a lower rate. The Keystone 65 Select Rx HMO with Choice Program is $56.50 monthly while the Keystone 65 Preferred Rx HMO is $248.50 monthly. Let me know if these are not the plans you are talking about. I'm including a link to the Summary of Benefits and I am going to write a review of these plans on my blog later today. Let me know if you have any other questions. I will post a link to the review once I am done.

thanks,

matt

Matt we live in Montgomery County.
My zip code is 18969
Let me know where your blog is.
We are retired & could use the savings,but afraid there has to be a bigger reason than just some higher Co-Pays to save almost $200 a month.
Thanks in advance for your help.
