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 available

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 cover-

age 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 de-

termine 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/
