Who is managing your health?

There is only one acceptable answer to this question and that answer is “you.”

 
However, if you make the wrong decision about how to receive your Medicare, your health could be managed by an insurance company’s budget analyst more concerned about the profits of his employer than your best health outcome.
 
When you first go on Medicare – usually at age 65 but often later if you are still working – you can choose to receive your Medicare benefits through regular Medicare combined with a Medicare Supplement and a Medicare Part D drug plan. Or, you can instead assign your Medicare benefits to a private, for-profit, restricted-choice Medicare Advantage plan such as Humana Gold Plus or Kaiser Permanente.
 
When you choose to stay with regular Medicare, you can go to any doctor or hospital anywhere in the country that accepts Medicare as almost all do. This includes such noted medical facilities as Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, M.D. Anderson and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
 
Importantly, with regular Medicare combined with a Medicare Supplement, all or almost all of your costs are covered 100 percent regardless of your health situation now or in the future.
 
This scenario allows you, along with the doctors you choose, to make the best decisions for your health.
 
On the other hand, if you choose to receive your Medicare through a private, for-profit restricted-access Medicare Advantage plan, your health care decisions are often made by a budget analyst who is focused on managing the costs of your care.
 
With a Medicare Advantage plan, you have a limited choice of doctors and hospitals and you are not fully covered when you travel. Even worse, because a Medicare Advantage plan is focused on its own profits, it will often say “no” to treatments and tests your doctor may think is right for you when regular Medicare would have said “yes.”
 
In today’s internet content-rich world, you have access to a wealth of information about your health and the health care providers you can choose with regular Medicare. You have more control and input into the decisions about your health than any generation before.
 
You should never give up this benefit by assigning your Medicare benefits to a private, for-profit, restricted-choice Medicare Advantage plan.

Who do you trust with your Medicare?

2017-09-04 Labor Day.mp4

I hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend with your family and those who are special to you.

One of the most important decisions you make when you first go on Medicare is who you trust to help you understand your Medicare options and help you choose you receive your Medicare.

There is only one answer to that question and it is a great answer – YOU.

You are the only person you can trust to make sure you know what you need to know about Medicare to make the right decision for you.

Trust your instincts. A stranger who knocks on your door uninvited trying to get you to sign an application for the only Medicare plan they sell may not be the best choice. A telemarketer who calls you – often violating the Do Not Call list to which you subscribed – is also likely not the right choice.

I have made it my life’s work to help as many people as possible fully understand how Medicare works and what their options are with Medicare so they can make the best Medicare decision for them.

I would appreciate the opportunity to help you learn about your Medicare options and help you enroll in the Medicare plan you decide is right for you.
