Top 3 Things All New Medicare Beneficiaries Should Know

New to Medicare?

Medicare can be confusing and overwhelming if you’re just beginning to look at coverage options.  One of the best ways to make this process simpler is to work with an insurance agent that can provide details and guide you through the steps.  When picking an insurance agent, make sure to find someone you trust and feel comfortable taking recommendations from.  Medicare decisions can have large financial impacts, so be sure that your advisor is someone knowledgeable about the options and all the possibilities. By working closely with Turning 65 Solutions, you’ll be in good hands.

If you’re just beginning to start the Medicare enrollment process, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Take the necessary time to research

With all the different Medicare options, it’s important to take the time to research them all fully.  This process should begin before you turn 65, which is the typical enrollment date.  In order to ensure that you enroll on time, it’s best to research beforehand and be confident about your policy selection.

Researching independently is an excellent way to learn more about Medicare and the different policy options.  Once you’ve done that, you can make an appointment to sit down and have a discussion with an insurance agent.  Your background knowledge will be helpful here so that you can have an educated, productive discussion.

Mark important dates on your calendar

Medicare is very specific about timelines.  There are certain times throughout the year when you can enroll or make changes to your policy.  Making sure you’re aware of those dates is an important part of keeping up to date with your policy.  Medicare policies can change each year, so if your current policy no longer fits your needs, you’ll need to know when the different periods are in which you can make changes.

Be critical of your coverage

Continuing to evaluate both your policy and your medical needs is essential.  Medicare policies vary greatly and saving the most money requires you to stay updated on the different offerings and coverage options.

If you don’t think that your policy is working well for you anymore, make an appointment to speak with an insurance professional about it.  Bringing your concerns to their attention will help you make the right Medicare decisions and get the information you need to make an educated choice.
