As we all get older, it’s important to know how health insurance works when Medicare is involved. Some of us are on Medicare, some of us assist loved ones on Medicare, and all of us will eventually need to have an understanding of Medicare to best consider options for coverage and plan accordingly.
We will discuss the financing of health care as one gets older by touching on the following topics as well as have an open forum for questions.
What’s covered on Medicare (and more importantly, what’s not)?
What to consider when reviewing options with a broker when turning age 65?
What’s the difference between Supplemental Insurance and Medicare Advantage?
What is a donut hole?
What should I consider regarding Long Term Care?
Why should you consider insurance in addition to just Medicare?
Why do some folks pay much more than others for their Medicare coverage?
