The number of employed Americans rose by 35% between 2011 and 2016 according to a December 2017 study completed by Senior Living.

What Do Medicare Advantage Plan and Part D Ratings Mean

Posted by admin on Jul 6, 2015 12:27:46 PM















Both Medicare Advantage and Part D plans come from private companies that must be approved by CMS. However, Medicare rates these plans each year.

Do Veterans with Veterans Health Benefits need Medicare Part B?

Posted by admin on Nov 12, 2014 3:42:02 PM

Many veterans, and some active-duty service people wonder if they need to enroll in Medicare Part B as soon as they qualify. Most people over 65 qualify for premium-free Medicare Part A, but they are required to pay a premium for Part B. This year, this premium is $104.90 for most eligible people, but that figure could change at any time. Do people who already have the ability to access health care benefits through the VA need to spend extra money for Part B?

Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Medicare Part D)

Posted by admin on Oct 23, 2014 12:30:56 PM

Medicare approved prescription drug plans, also called Medicare Part D, but they are offered by private health insurance companies. If you do not get this coverage when you first become eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty. All plans have to conform to state and local insurance rules, but they are different because of the types of drugs covered and the amount of coverage. To give you even more choices, some insurers even offer tiered plans with different levels of coverage.
Are you confused about which Medicare prescription drug plan you should enroll in? At Trusted Senior Specialists, our professional and experienced senior health insurance agents want to help. You can choose to use the Medicare health insurance quote form or call us at 1-855-474-6234 for assistance. If you can give us a list of your prescriptions and tell us where you live, our agents can find local plans that save you the most money and give you the best access to the medication you need.
