If you have just turned 65, Medicare is going to be a part of your life whether you want it to be or not. And with that comes dealing with the government, confusion and red tape.
But being that I went through it for my parents you can now benefit from the information I have learned helping them.
The Medicare section will be divided into a few separate parts…this way you can process the information in ‘bite-size’ chunks.
The first will deal with the basics of Medicare, covering such topics as:
- Medicare Part A and B
- Where to get Medicare diabetes supplies
- How to apply for Medicare
- Medicare eligibility requirements
As well as some of the Medicare Advantage Plans and some of the durable medical equipment available, like lift chairs.
The second part will deal with Medicare Supplement Plans, distinguishing between the Plans and steps to figuring out which is the best for you.
And finally, I will discuss Medicare Part D, the Prescription Drug Benefit, including costs, premiums, co-payments and ideas for how to reduce your prescription drug expenses.
