How Agents Can Help with Medicare Plan Choices
Medicare recipients have more plan choices than ever before, including private plans. Medicare options can be very complicated because of the many moving pieces. We commonly divide Medicare decision-making in to the following three action items:
- Determining if you are eligible and the options available to you
- Choosing benefit formation and selecting a plan or plans. For example, should you take advantage of a Medicare Advantage private plan or choose a Traditional Medicare plan combined with supplements? This can greatly affect the benefits you qualify for as well as cost.
- Using your coverage
