Medicare Truths & Myths

With Thanksgiving around the corner it is a good time discuss some important things regarding our loved ones.

Joanne Giardini-Russell and Cortney Ventrone from our partner Senior Health Medicare to help us out. 

This is an important time for Medicare because it is the annual election period. So, if you want to switch plans the time is now.

Joanne and Cortney offered great advice on how to ease the decision making process regarding Medicare.

If you have an existing Medigap contract that is being phased out by the government, you  can keep your plan. However, you probably wouldn't want too because some plans are going out in 2020 and you would have to qualify after 2020 to get out of your plan.

It is not mandatory in the U.S. to sign up for Medicare at age 65.
