E92 Retire in Green Valley, Arizona

E92 Retire in Green Valley, Arizona

Mel and Patricia Schlesinger love Mexico but they wanted an inexpensive home in the States to come back to annually, so as to not lose their Medicare benefits. They ended up purchasing a casita in one of the many 55 plus communities in Green Valley, Arizona, 30 miles south of Tucson and 60 miles north of the Mexican border. Residents of the city love Green Valley Recreation, an entity which consists of 13 busy hubs, seven golf courses and miles of hiking and biking trails.

Mel Schlesinger’s website, concerning Medicare Advantage plans, is available here.

Mel Schlesinger’s book on Medicare is The Better Medicare Solution: How to Minimize Your Costs So That You Can Maximize Your Healthcare Coverage, What No One is Telling You.
