Medicare Planning​​

When you learn how Medicare works you will not be afraid.

Many people are confused by the complexity of the Medicare system. When you don’t understand how Medicare and your plan works, you are open the stress of worrying about what the plan covers, to being billed for services you shouldn’t pay for, accepting services not covered by Medicare or your health plan, signing forms in the doctors office without reading them, enrolling and staying in plans that don’t fit your needs or budget, getting upset when you have co-pays that you didn’t expect and can’t afford, overpaying for your prescription drugs, and staying in the same health or drug plan every year because you are afraid to make a change.
