What you Need to Know About Medicare
If you are about to turn 65, you are probably anxious to learn more about Medicare. Even if you've been on Medicare for several years, you still may have questions about your coverage since both Medicare and private insurance carriers seem to make changes every year.
Since it was established in 1965, Medicare has provided a "safety net" to help Americans aged 65 and older pay their medical expenses.
As you approach this milestone birthday, there are a number of different options to consider when signing up for Medicare. You may have question, such as:
"Do I still have to sign up for Medicare if I am still working and receive health insurance through my employer?" (The answer is Yes.)
"Will Medicare cover all of my health care needs?" (The reality is Medicare only covers about half of a retiree's health care costs.)
That's why before signing up for Medicare, you should consult with an insurance advisor to review your health care needs and see what type of coverage you really need.
