How many of you wouldn't move because you're too comfortable with existing health care? I've heard many doctors are not accepting NEW medicare patients; will only take medicare patients if you've been a patient prior to going on medicare??? Is it concern for many or am I just a nervous nelly about it.

We are currently healthy, but I think that because we're being so well monitored by our current crop of docs.

Any thoughts!!! Question

Yes, I thought about it too,,My husband goes to the VA so where we are retiring, the hospital is closer there than where we are in our own state. As for myself, I will ask my doctor to recommend someone if and when we ever sell our home and get to where we are going...They will know who accepts medicare and who doesn't...We are in relatively good health also and I figure if the day comes and I really am concerned, I can always drive back home here and go back to my doctor,,but other people in the area will surely tell you who is who when you get to know them,,
