NIGHTMARE ON “MEDICARE” STREET
By Bob Evenson, Contributor
One word can make you cringe. One word can make you scared! One word can make you frightened…is that word “Halloween”? No, that word is MEDICARE! Yes, Medicare insurance will bring out fear and cause anxiety for many people. It can be complicated and difficult to understand. It can be scary and intimidating, but should bring peace of mind when it is needed most.
This fall offers another annual election period for Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage Plans) and Medicare Part D (Prescription Drug Plans). Do not be afraid to understand your Medicare insurance options! With the assistance of a trained and certified insurance agent, Medicare can be less frightening and understandable.
The annual election period for Medicare Part C and Medicare Part D is from October 15, 2017 through December 07, 2017. Due to regulatory and industry changes, annual reviews are necessary to maintain an affordable and effective health insurance plan. Insurance contracts have annual rate and benefit updates. The provider and pharmacy networks can change as well as the prescription drug list or formulary. The worse time to learn about these changes is after you have incurred a claim.
This Halloween, conquer your fear of Medicare by working with a trained insurance professional at Century Health Solutions. Our staff will take the time to explain your coverage options and the plans available to meet your needs and fit your budget. After enrollment, we continue to answer your questions or assist you with claims. With our services and support, having Medicare does not have to be a scary experience!
