Will You Be Remembered?

May this note find you well despite the floods, the fires and COVID.

I’m getting a lot of calls from Medicare Clients asking if they need to change their coverage.

Most people won’t need to change their coverage, but many will!

Here are the some of the reasons you might need to review your Medicare Coverage in October:

1. Your drugs have changed or gotten expensive.
2. Your doctors have changed or they have stopped taking your current plan.
3. The premiums on your current Medicare Insurance plan seem really expensive.
4. You receive the annual notice of changes in your plan and your copays have gone up.
5. You are getting bombarded by call centers and you want peace of mind 😊.

The good news is the Annual Election Period is still over a month away so let me know if you have question or book a time on my calendar here.

But in the meantime…

Recording the story of your life can make a huge difference in the lives of your children and grandchildren.

Some my most precious memories are the stories my mother shared…

Living through World War II as child in Amsterdam.
Walking past Anne Frank’s house on the way to school.
Coming to the US on the Queen Mary as a teenager.

Now I’m doing my best to record those stories for my kids.

Here’s an article on how you can do the same.

That’s it for this week and please reach out if you need me.

It’s time to get out!

I hope this note finds you well despite the madness of the times.

Hopefully your Medicare coverage is working well.

If not, feel free to book a time on my calendar and get your questions answered.

In the meantime, click on the picture above and to learn what you can do to make life better.

It is that simple, get vaccinated and start living again.

There are so many nature centers and natural parks that are waiting to be explored.

Remember that Seniors, even super healthy ones are more at risk than the general population.

So protect yourself and start living well.

If you’re on Medicare, here’s how to get Covid vaccinated quickly!

Now that Covid VACCINATIONS are finally rolling out, it’s imperative that Medicare consumers be proactive about getting vaccinated.

As a Certified Senior Advisor, my job is to make certain you have access to the resources that are important to you.

So if  getting vaccinated is important to you, click on the picture below to learn the steps you can take to get your COVID vaccination more quickly.

The first step should be to contact your primary care professional. Find out what it takes to get on the list.

If you discover the wait for the Covid vaccine will be inordinately long, the next step is to find out if there are other state approved Covid vaccination dispensaries.

The good news is that Kaiser Permanente has stepped up in many states to fill the role of an approved vaccination dispensary even for non Kaiser Permanente patients.

Age regulations vary by state. Some states require Medicare consumers to be 70, for others it is only age 65.

Get the number of your local Kaiser facility and ask them about this program. By doing so, you may get vaccinated a lot quicker.

I’ll help you take the mystery out of Medicare.

It’s time to protect your house

I hope you are having a great week despite this crazy year and Happy Halloween!

Thank goodness we’ve had six inches of snow and that has helped to slow down the fires. Sadly, many people here have lost homes and bad things are happening in the south because of the hurricanes.

If you want to make certain your home is protected from catastrophic loss, click on the picture below and find out what I discovered.

Except for losing a family member, few things are harder than losing your home or having it destroyed by a natural disaster.

Nevertheless, it’s estimated that 40% of American homes are under insured.  That means if something happens to your home, the insurance refund you receive may not be enough to cover the cost of repairing or rebuilding your home.

If you’ve updated your home or you haven’t reviewed your Property and Casualty insurance in a while, now is the time to act.

Use your phone to make a video recording from basement to attic of all of your possessions (even your clothes) and talk to your agent (remember I only do Medicare).

Here’s a great article  to help you protect your home.

That’s it for this week. If you or your friends need a review of your Medicare coverage, book a time on my calendar.

Happy Halloween!

The secret to survival may be self care and a news fast!

Covid-19 is a game changer. It is particularly
hard on Seniors and those with compromised
immune systems or comorbid health conditions.

Things will probably get worse,but you don’t
have to get worse.

The answer is self care. Get plenty of sleep,
eat well and exercise.

Take a few minutes each day to give thanks for
the things you do have, family, a home, food,
water, plus decent health insurance, at least
you do if you work with me you have great
Medicare coverage :).

Pray, meditate or do both. Most important, go
on a news fast. Really! If you live and breathe
only the constant Covid-19 news cycle, it’s
going to eat your sole.

I took a two day news break last weekend and
my wife told me I was a much happier person.
It certainly reduced my stress.

Check the news twice a day, briefly, but do not
let it eat you alive. You and your family will
be happier, I promise.
