What Plan Do You Choose?
Where do you start when picking your Medicare plan?
Now that you’re approaching age 65, have you been inundated by phone calls and brochures in the mail about Medicare regarding what seems like a hundred different plans to pick from?
So how do you navigate through all of this information?
We recommend partnering with a trusted advisor…somebody that can help you cut through the clutter and help you lay out a clear path.
It can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. We can walk with you through each step of the enrollment process and help you find the plan that best meets your medical needs and fits your budget.
The first step is to learn about the different plans and what they cover, and then what your options are depending on your specific situation, your medical needs and your financial budget.
Medicare Parts A, B, C and D Explained
You have two different ways to obtain your coverage. You can keep your Original Medicare (Parts A and B), and join a Prescription Drug plan and a Medigap policy as well, or you can purchase a Medicare Advantage plan (Plan C), and perhaps a stand-alone Prescription Drug plan.
Before you can choose your path, however, we recommend that you read more about each part of Medicare and what they offer. Gaining a better understanding of the pros and cons of each plan will help you make a more informed decision regarding your healthcare coverage.
