Medicare Part B covers Physician visits, DME, and Part B Medications such as Chemotherapy. There is a monthly premium for Part B and a penalty if you do not take Part B when you become eligible. Only if you are staying employed and have a group plan with credible coverage can you avoid Part B without a penalty when you become eligible.
It all depends on you. I am always going to say a Supplement is better because it is. Even if you are on a fixed income paying $130-$140/month and not having any co-payments is the best option. Supplements also have the benefit of not limiting you too a network. Medicare Advantage might be good for some, but never the better option.
Once again that depends on whether you use Original Medicare Part A and Part B, a Medicare Supplement, or a Medicare Advantage. As long as your Doctor accepts Original Medicare you can use them. A supplement is no different. If you choose a Medicare Advantage your Doctor must be in the network.
Partially true. Some Medicare Advantage Plans include Dental, Vision, and Hearing benefits. Some have gym memberships. The Dental, Vision, and hearing benefits are limited to cleanings, an eye exam, and co-payments on hearing aids. You are often better getting a separate Dental/Vision?Hearing plan with real benefits.
“Mandy and I were both turning 65 the same month. Jim was able to get us on a great Medicare Advantage Plan that met our limited budget. He was fast, courteous, and really knew his stuff. I would definitely recommend National senior savings to anyone”.
“I spoke with Carrie and she was very professional. Carrie helped me save over $600/year for the same Plan G I was already on just by switching me to a different company. The best part is I kept all of my same benefits”.
“I was at a loss on how to sign up for Medicare when I saw Mark’s video on YouTube. I decided to give him a call and in 15 minutes all of my worries were gone. Mark got me on a Medigap Plan I could afford and checks in on me every year”.
