Signing up for Medicare: What you Need to Know

Isrf you’re 65 or over, you may be wondering how to get signed up for Medicare, when the deadlines are, and what you need to know. With several parts to choose from, additional prescription plans and optional gap coverage, enrollment can become overwhelming. And even for those who have done it before, the changes each year present a challenge. Also, you have to consider options available that can help protect you from some of the expenses not covered by Medicare. The Medicare health plan that you choose affects many things like cost, benefits, doctor choice, convenience and quality. Read on to discover the ins and outs of Medicare enrollment and find out everything you need to know from the experts at Zinn.

Who
If you are 65 and over, you are eligible for Medicare. You can also be under 65 years old and still qualify for Medicare because you are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI. In most cases, you qualify for Medicare due to a disability if you have been receiving SSDI checks for more than 24 months.

What
Medicare offers four parts: A, B, C & D. Medicare Part A covers inpatient care in the hospital or limited stay in a skilled nursing facility. Part B covers doctors and outpatient hospital services. Medicare Part C is the Medicare Advantage Program, and Part D covers prescription drugs. Depending on your needs, you can choose various options in your Medicare enrollment.

Where
Come to Zinn Insurance with all your Medicare enrollment questions. We provide education on a personal basis so you are able to make an informed decision that will best suit your needs and lifestyle. Our services are at no cost to you nor do they reflect on your rates. We are compensated by the insurance carrier.

When
Enrollment starts October 15, 2017 and goes through December 7, 2017 with all changes reflected January 1, 2018. We will be taking appointments for Medicare enrollment starting October 1, 2017.
