What Medicare covers
North County Times

As a senior on Medicare, I feel I must address Melinda Vansant’s letter of Nov. 23 (“Useless doctor visits”).

She starts by saying “Obamacare” will be a big disappointment, because she already has Medicare and most of it is useless. I’m curious as to how she would pay for her health services without it. The new Medicare booklet has about 30 pages of covered applications; also she should have a supplemental insurance plan that covers much more and includes drug coverage.
