Turning 65 and Still Working: What About Medicare?

Posted by admin on May 8, 2017 12:00:00 PM

Working past traditional retirement age used to be uncommon. Now there are far more Americans aged 65 and older in the workforce than there were 3 decades ago. The number of employed Americans rose by 35% between 2011 and 2016 according to a December 2017 study completed by Senior Living. Medicare used to be only thought of as retirement health insurance, but many who qualify may not be retired at all.

Be on guard against Medicare fraud!

Posted by admin on Aug 27, 2014 5:55:29 PM

During open enrollment, you will probably get approached about many different Medicare health insurance programs. While the vast majority of people who approach you are licensed insurance agents who adhere to strict ethical and legal standards, it pays to be careful in order to protect your own identity and personal information. Of course, you can also help protect Medicare against fraud, and this helps everybody enjoy lower costs and benefit benefits.

How do Medicare Advantage and VA benefits work together?

Posted by admin on Aug 2, 2014 9:00:47 PM

After serving our country in a branch of the US military, many veterans are entitled to health benefits through the VA. However, VA doctors and hospitals are not always convenient options.

Understanding Medicare Supplement Plans

Posted by admin on Jul 29, 2014 3:38:48 AM

Medicare Part A and Part B help beneficiaries pay for many health costs, but they do not pay for everything. For example, not all possible medical services are even covered by either Part A or B. Even covered services might include copays, deductibles, and coinsurance costs. Many Medicare beneficiaries would rather predict and control their health costs, and that is why they purchase Medicare supplement plans.
