[18-52] Better- Not Your Momma’s Medicare!
If you are getting questions from employees who have parents already enrolled in Medicare…
Did you know Medicare offers more since their parents first enrolled?! Are they missing benefits they are entitled to, especially since Medicare added coverage enhancements over the years?
Many people think they are stuck with what they first picked. They don’t know they can review their Medicare plans annually with experts and make changes. Our Certified Medicare Planners® review folks current needs and see if there are plans that might be more appropriate.
Below is a short video we created to explain why an annual review might reveal hidden benefit opportunities! Because Medicare is ‘not your Momma’s Medicare!”
