I will be discussing more about important dates for people over 65 in the very near future.
In the meantime, for those of you that are new to Medicare or, anybody that wants a quick and easy refresher course, Wellmark offers Medicare 101. This explains the original Medicare and the various parts.
The parts of Medicare are referred to with alphabetical categories as you will see in scrolling through this article. It will also tell you how to choose so your specific needs are best addressed. It will let you know when you are eligible and how you can enroll.
After a person enrolls in Medicare, they would need to buy a Medicare supplement plan and a prescription drug plan. You will notice towards the bottom of this article that you will have the ability to view the plans that are available. I am a large proponent of Medicare supplement plan F. This gives you the most comprehensive coverage. In light of our medical costs in today’s world, this is more important than ever. On the Part D which is the prescription drug coverage, you will see an opportunity to view the plans available.
Stay in touch as I will be sharing more information for you and important dates in the near future.
