Because I know someone here in Denver who was going to go to Dake until he was told it would be 50k out of pocket with the 40% discount with Medicare. I can't hang with that.
Just to repeat and to clarify:
I previously posted
Chris - It sounds like you are going to be covered by Medicare. I was covered by Medicare, and a Supplemental Plan---I paid very little. Send me a PM if you want more info on the Medicare. Medicare paid 80% of their negotiated rate for services.
As a reminder to anyone who is going to Stanford --- if you have an insurance plan, say like Lew's, at 30/70, you can apply to the financial aid office at Stanford for help with the 30%. My understanding is they are really trying to accomodate their patients.
If you are interested in going to Stanford, you need to let Dake's staff work out the insurance stuff for you. Be sure to ask about the financial aid.
