Medicare deadline approaching

Hello readers, great news! I am assisting as a benefits consultant to help people in our community switch to a Medicare plan that is more affordable for 2019, and that will give back up to $105 in your Social Security account monthly, which is $1,260 yearly.

This is a excellent Medicare Advantage plan that covers what Medicare covers plus health care costs that Medicare doesn’t cover like eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses, hearing exams and hearing aids, basic dental and $420 per year in over-the-counter products such as vitamins, knee braces, blood pressure cuffs, etc.

It also covers your medication and has a low out-of-pocket deductible. If you have a spouse on Medicare, the two of you will have up to an additional combined $2,520 per year back in your pocket in addition to the savings on deductibles and co-insurance.

Just think of what you can do with that extra savings. The great plus with this is you do NOT need a Medicare Supplemental or Part D plan with this because medications are covered.

Worried that your primary care physician is not on this plan? Many of them are on this plan, including BayCare physicians.

This plan covers Medicare Part A, B and D. In addition to what was mentioned, below is a break- down of some of what you will get on this plan. My recommendation is for us to sit down together and compare this plan to what you currently have. Just give me a call, and I will be happy to help you.
