Most of us are really intelligent people, but not exactly experts when it comes to Medicare, and it can be an extremely frustrating and overwhelming task to review so many Medicare plans.
Next week, Medicare eligible persons will be getting their annual notice of change from the current plan as well as open enrollment letters in the mail. The question really is, "What should I do with it?"
Should you just toss it and stay put in the plan that you are in, or is there potential to save by changing to a different plan?
One of the biggest challenges in retirement planning is making sure you have enough income when you retire, and one of the biggest expenses retirees have is healthcare. I feel beholden to ensure my clients are able to navigate the complex world of Medicare, pick the most affordable option, and let them know they don't have to face it alone.
While I am not an expert on the topic, I know a wonderful woman who is, and she is extremely passionate for guiding others through the Medicare decision process. When you get your open enrollment letter in the mail next week, give me a call and we can set up an appointment so that you can make an informed decision and hopefully uncover a cost savings opportunity.
