The official start of the post-WWII baby boom may be debatable, but those born in 1947 are surely among the first of the Boomers to be reaching Medicare eligibility. It may be time to get ready to make some choices. So what do you do now to prepare? It’s time to think big and deep about what comes next. And then do big. I can help you if you understand your choices when it comes to Medicare.
When considering your Medicare choices, it’s important to think in terms of coverage and not just plans. You want to be sure that you’re comparing apples to apples. For example, you may need Original Medicare Parts A and B, plus a prescription drug plan (Part D), plus a Medicare Supplement Insurance plan (Medigap) to match the coverage that you may get with a Medicare Advantage plan that includes prescription drug coverage. Further, the coverage you get with one Medicare Advantage or prescription drug plan can vary a great deal from what you get with another.
