About Toledo
Toledo is in northwest Ohio, at the western end of Lake Erie bordering the state of Michigan.  The city was founded in 1833 on the west bank of the Maumee River, and originally incorporated as part of Monroe County, Michigan Territory.  It was re-founded in 1837, after conclusion of the Toledo War, when it was incorporated in Ohio.

Plan Type
The most significant factor is the plan type that you choose.  For example, the monthly premium of a plan type "F" is going to be significantly higher than the monthly premium of a "high deductible plan type F".  This is because each Medicare supplement plan type offers a different benefit structure.  All supplement plans are designed to cover medical costs that are not covered by traditional Medicare.  However, some plans pick up more medical costs than others.  These benefit differences are reflected in monthly premium.

Age
With very few exceptions, the older you are, the higher your monthly premium.

Good to know:  If your family is healthy and doesn't visit the doctor often, a high-deductible health plan could save you hundreds of dollars in lower monthly premiums.  In addition, most high deductible health insurance plans are HSA eligible.  An HSA eligible plan qualifies you to open a health savings account (HSA).  A health savings account is designed to work in concert with a your high deductible health insurance plan.  You can save money in your HSA account before taxes and use the funds to pay for eligible health care expenses.  Additionally, unused HSA funds continue to grow tax-deferred, year after year.
