What About My Medicare Meds?

Greetings Medicare Insurance Seeker!

It’s that time of year when everyone is being bombarded with false promises of Medicare gold!

If you are taking prescriptions, it’s a good idea to review your options.

1. Look at your Annual Notice of Changes. If the drugs have switched tiers, beware of higher costs.

2. Before filling your prescription, make sure the pharmacy you are going to is a preferred pharmacy in the Part D network.

3. Before filling your prescription, ask the pharmacist the “cash price” for the medication. Sometimes the price your pharmacy can offer is LESS than the discount you receive through your Part D drug plan.

4. Finally, before filling your prescription, check the price using a discounting online app like Goodrx.com. Sometimes this app can really save you money.

Finally, the Annual Election Period is from October 15th through December 7th.

If you have questions about your Medicare Supplement, your Medicare Advantage Plan or your Part D drug coverage…

Book a time on my calendar here and we’ll see if we can reduce your costs and improve your benefits.

Have a great week and call me if you need me!

Getting Old Ain’t For Sissies!

Greetings Medicare Insurance Seeker!

Getting old ain’t for sissies!

That’s what one of my old neighbors said, he was a retired World War II veteran and he certainly had the privilege to say it.

As we age, we get older. The older we get, the more our body wears down.

As we look in the mirror, we see new wrinkles, we feel new pain, we experience new things.

The most important thing is not what happens to us, but how we choose to respond.

I have a close friend who was diagnosed with a very debilitating disease. I am constantly amazed by his ability to put things in perspective to continue to improve himself and to do the best you can for himself and his family.

Remember to reframe, put things in perspective and give thanks for what you have.

Here’s a great article to think about.

That’s it for this week, if you have any questions about Medicare insurance options, book a time here on my calendar.
