    Anyone out there that can shed light on how one maintains supplemental Medicare insurance once you are essentially “state-less”?
    I assume that whatever state you set up a mail-drop service in becomes your new home state, and you contact BCBS, etc. for plans in that state?
    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    If you are turning 65 or retiring after the age of 65, then Medicare Supplemental Insurance could help you make the leap to full-time RVing. ... Those that are eligible for Medicare are also eligible for a Medicare Supplemental Plan that helps fill the gaps in coverage that Medicare leaves open.

    It depends on individual experiences; some areas are bad for either. Wife and I have Medicare Advantage, and it works perfectly for us, even after cataract and other surgeries that were low cost out-of-pocket. Probably because our health system is so amazingly good here; two teaching hospitals, world-class cancer center, etc. Others say Med Advantage doesn't work, so pay the extra hundreds for the supplemental. For us, we only have SS, so the extra cost wouldn't be worth it.

    We spent 6 months in West Yellowstone, MT working at a gift shop for minimum wage (20-24 hours a week each, with 3 days off together in a row). Our boss also owned a pair of cabins and we were paid $70 to clean when they were vacated (3x a week, took about 2 hours per cabin). We paid no rent and lived in the most beautiful place, less than a mile from Yellowstone National Park.
