MEDICARE MONEY SAVING TIPS

This class explains the basics of

Medicare but more importantly it

answers many common questions

about Medicare as well as questions

you would never know to ask.

A lot of what you learn is not avail-

able on the internet, is difficult to

find, or requires a serious time

commitment to acquire. We will be

addressing the following questions

and more:

When should I apply for Part B?

What are the penalties for not taking

Part B when it is first available?

What are the benefits of not taking

Part B when it is first available?

What are the penalties for not taking Part D when it is first available?

I’m losing my group insurance – what should I do?

I have TRS, Tri-Care or VA benefits – is there anything I need to be aware of?

What are the lock-in provisions of Part D plans & Medicare Advantage Plans?

What are the pros & cons of Medicare Supplements & Medicare Advantage

Plans?

What are the rating methods used to determine the costs of supplements?

What is Medicare assignment?

What are loss ratios & how will they affect me?

What triggers your “Open Enrollment” period?

When is Medicare my primary coverage and when is it not?

What are the four different enrollment periods?

The choices you make when you first become eligible for Medicare will have

a huge impact on your future costs, whether they escalate rapidly or increase

gradually. It will also determine the quality of care as well as the choice of

where you receive your care tomorrow. This class will be the last piece of

information you will need in order to make informed decisions about your

Medicare options. (Min2/Max20)
