Have you googled “Medicare for Dummies”…have you read up on Medicare and realize you have more questions than answers…OR are you afraid to figure out Medicare, just hoping and praying someone will just tell you what to do?? You’ve come to the right place. In this 4 part webinar series, I make things super simple for you! Each Webinar series is tailored to the participants attending. Our small group webinar class allows you to get specific answers to your individual situation. You will learn:

Part 1: What is Medicare

I will teach you about the alphabet soup of Medicare – Part A, Part B, Part C & Part D. You will learn how much it costs, what it covers and what it does NOT cover.

Part 2: Medicare Supplement VS Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drug Coverage

Despite having similar sounding names, they are very different options. Once you are on Original Medicare, you should pick one or the other to cover the 20% of medical costs that Medicare won’t cover. We will go over each option in detail and discuss finances and personality traits that will help you pick the option that is best for you. I will even touch on how to pick an insurance agent to help you do all of this.

Part 3: When, Where and How to Sign up…Without PENALTIES

Yup…there’s penalties if you don’t do it right! But don’t worry…I will show you the WHAT, WHERE and HOW to sign up, what to do if you want to work past 65 and what to do for your under 65 spouse. I will teach you how to evaluate your work plan vs. a Medicare insurance plan. You will learn about all the penalties, how to avoid them and what “Enrollment Period” you need to sign up under for YOUR specific situation.

Part 4: Prescription Drug Plans (PDP)

Our federal government creates the framework for the PDP plans whether you have a stand-alone plan or it’s lumped in with your Medicare Advantage plan…and it CHANGES EVERY YEAR! Ugh… AND…it’s not a perfect solution for all your medications. I’ll show you the basic framework, discuss an average plan and show you how to evaluate which of the 32 plans in the state of California will be best for you. Plus, we will discuss other ways to get your prescriptions at an affordable price.

Whether you are still a few years from your Medicare eligibility or it’s right around the corner, I can help you figure it out. You will leave with a clear and actionable plan that tells you exactly what to do. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today!
