Understanding Medicare

A survey from Extend Health reveals 75% of seniors on Medicare say the government health program is difficult to understand. Understanding Medicare and various coverage options can be confusing. In addition to signing up for original Medicare, seniors can purchase private Medicare Advantage or Medigap plans to fill gaps in what original Medicare covers. This adds another layer of complexity to their choices.

The takeaway for seniors turning 65 this year — or for seniors already on Medicare making decisions to change or renew their coverage options during the upcoming annual enrollment period — is that it's important to have the right information to make sure you have the right coverage based on your health needs and desires.

Our Medicare seminars are very informative and usually filled up. We still have some spots left for the upcoming seminar...
