Income is not as concerning as medical
we have been at the hospital or a doctors office every day since Friday.
Even hitting the max out of pocket it’s 60 miles one way to the heart institute.
It just cost more to be old.
Wife and I have a Cadillac plan with max out of pocket. It’s all costly even with good insurance.
Are you to young for medicare or do not use it. Not trying to be sarcastic but just asking.

Have an Medicare Advantage Plan through work retirement.

I am on Medicare with an Advantage Plan thru Aetna. Been very happy "so far" - but no health issues.
