If you are the caregiver to an elderly or disabled family member, you no doubt play a critical role in the life of your loved one. You may schedule appointments with doctors and specialists, manage medications, maybe even handle the finances and other countless daily tasks. As if that isn’t enough, it is possible that at some point you may also have to aid your loved one in finding the Medicare plan that best fits their needs.
Medicare can be a challenging topic, especially for those who have never dealt with Medicare before. In fact, Medicare may not have yet crossed the minds of many caregiver’s because enrollment is still years away for them. However, if you find yourself in the role of a caregiver, you may need to understand Medicare sooner than you think if you need to assist a loved one in choosing the right plan.
Family caregivers who understand how Medicare works may find it easier to help their loved ones through the transition. Lack of solid understanding of the program could lead to costly mistakes in the future. So where can you turn to get reliable information about Medicare?
