Thank you all for the helpful advice.
So much to think about relocating, makes me crazy.

I know what you mean; we went through relocating a couple of years ago. While you don't have to change medicare supplement plans, you may have to change prescription drug plans (if you have them) as those are location based.

Advantage Plans are great until they aren't.
I did the same when I relocated. I just needed a letter of portability from my previous Advantage plan provider. I much prefer the Medigap plan.

When I moved from MD to VT, I kept my MD Medigap plan because it was much cheaper than any plan offered in VT. Still have it now, 5 years later. I changed my drug plan the next time it came up for renewal but only because I found a better deal.
