Medicare – Something that every American who reaches age 65 or who has a parent over 65 needs to be informed about and informed about in detail. Medicare, Medicare supplements (no they are not vitamins), part D drug plans, Medicare “Advantage” plans… What are they are what do I need to know?
And why are you bothering me with this now? Well starting October 15th and running through Pearl Harbor Day is the annual Open Enrollment period when you can change your insurance plans.
The choices you make in the next few weeks for yourself or for your parents if you are their caregiver can literally make a difference of tens of thousands of dollars in spending over the next year.
Our guest for this show is Misty Fox, co-owner of The McCunis-Fox Health Insurance Agency and an expert in Medicare and associated plans.
In this program Misty helped us take some of the confusion out of Medicare and the whole alphabet soup that goes with it.
