Parent Plus Repayment Advice and Help

I have over 200k in parent plus loans at 3 different government lenders.
1.  I am 59, what is the best forgiveness plan in general?
2.  Do I have to consolidate all 3 to factor the income based repayment plans?  I'm not sure how that works...I understand the 10/15% of AGI and all that, but what if you have 3 loans?

Thank you for a wonderful web site of help!

Parent PLUS Loans are the worst. Basically, there are no good forgiveness options. There is a backdoor with consolidating your PLUS loans and applying for ICR (Income-Contingent Repayment), and you'd be eligible for forgiveness after potentially 25 years.
