Important Guide Provides Answers to Most Commonly Asked Questions andEmpowers Seniors to be Informed and Confident When Choosing Their Health Coverage
(FORT WORTH, Texas – March 25, 2019) —Turning 65 means many choices and many changes. None more important than your healthcare. To help answer the most commonly asked questions and take the confusion out of selecting the right health coverage, Care N’ Care Health Plan has published a Medicare Information Guide that is available free to all residents of North Texas.
“Choosing the right kind of coverage and the right health plan needs to begin with a clear understanding of all of the options available, how they differ and what they each have to offer,” said Care N’ Care CEO Wendy Karsten. “We know that seniors are bombarded with confusing and often conflicting messages, so we’ve created this guide so seniors can feel informed and confident when they are making this important decision.”
The new guide from Care N’ Care begins with “Medicare Basics” in describing who is eligible for Medicare and when enrollment can take place. While annual enrollment begins each October for all seniors, there are other opportunities throughout the year when seniors can enroll—such as when turning 65 or when moving into a new service area or upon retirement and loss of employer coverage.
Focusing on questions most commonly asked by seniors, the guide outlines what is contained in a senior’s Medicare benefits parts A, B, C and D coverage and explains clearly and simply the different types of Medicare insurance options available, including traditional Medicare and Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription plans. It explains how HMOs and PPOs work (and differ), provides a guide to understanding prescription drug coverage, and even furnishes a checklist to help seniors choose the type of coverage that meets their needs, preferences and budget.
“Whether new to Medicare or interested in improving on existing Medicare coverage, all seniors deserve a plan that makes it easy to get the care they need when they need it,” said Karsten. “This guide is a must have and will help empower seniors so they feel good and secure in the decisions they are making.”
The Medicare Information Guide is available for free and under no obligation.
