Medicare can be a very complicated subject. I work hard to stay on top of changes and am licensed to advise on the different types of Medicare: Advantage, Supplemental (Medigap), Original Medicare and Prescription drug plans.
It is important to have a discussion about your situation, wants and needs. You have a limited window in some instances to get the best plan for you.
Medicare Advantage- Can provide certain benefits such as: dental, vision, hearing aids, food cards and health appointment transportation
MediGap / supplemental plans- Allow you to keep original Medicare and fills in certain gaps in regards to out-of-pocket costs.
Original Medicare- Available to elderly at age 65 through the government. Consists of separate parts to cover costs related to medical needs.
