HOW TO TAKE THE CHAOS OUT OF RETIREMENT HEALTHCARE Free Workshop Educates Boomers About MedicareLike Social Security, Medicare is far more complicated than most people realize. Yet new retirees are largely unprepared to deal with this mandatory health care program, especially if they've been automatically covered by health insurance at work.The biggest shocker is that Medicare is not automatic; you have to sign up for it within a specified period of time.Nor is it free; there are monthly premiums, deductibles, and copayments.Medicare does not cover everything. Supplemental insurance is essential, but choosing the right policy is no easy task. And even then, long-term care expenses are not covered.Regardless of how healthy you are now, you must prepare for serious medical costs in retirement. This is one of the most critical aspects of retirement planning. All it takes is one unexpected, large medical expense to derail your entire financial plan.The Chaos of Retirement Healthcare Decisions:
• More than half of pre-retirees find Medicare confusing, or completely baffling.• Two in three can't identify what part of Medicare covers hospital care.• Three in four don't know what part covers doctor visits.• Less than 1 in 10 understand the benefits of Part C/Medicare Advantage.How to Tame the Chaos:
• Attend our complimentary workshop and arm yourself with more knowledge about this confusing program.• Ask your financial advisor to include Medicare Guidance as part of your overall financial plan.• Learn how to carefully analyze your health coverage needs & Medicare choices.
Coordinate Medicare choices with your other financial planning decisions, especially Social Security.• Seek advice from an independent, unbiased professional to guide you through the Medicare labyrinth.
