    As I understand it, there's no overlap of any kind. If you have Medicare, you have Medicare and you're not part of the population that has to participate in the insurance marketplaces set up under Obamacare (some of us love that name:-).

    I'm not a big fan of the AARP but their Medicare vs. Obamacare fact sheets are pretty good.

    And more information:

    If you don't have drug coverage under Medicare Part D, you should look into one of the advantage plans (Medicare Part C) that don't require you to pay in. During the enrollment period for the advantage plans this fall, I'm going to have to look into getting one because, like you, I only have Medicare A and B coverage. I'm healthy now but I'm not going to be getting any younger as I get older:-)

    Honestly, we don't know. The Obama administration hasn't had time to sit down and explain anything about Obamacare to the American people. All we can do is guess about it. They never asked our opinions. They just passed a law and are forcing it on us. You'd think they would at least ''try'' to explain to us how it is all going to work, wouldn't you? All I know is NOBODY in our government wants it for themselves. They made sure that they are exempt from this so called health care. It must not be any good, or surely they would want it.
