Hello, this is Karl Bruns-Kyler with the Big 65 Medicare Insurance Services and I hope you’re having a great week.
My wife Quantz and I are currently in Vienna and it is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Today I want to talk about the importance of medical ratings for providers.
Whether you are receiving home health care, or you have a family member in a long-term care facility, or you would simply like to know the ratings of the hospital where you are going to receive an outpatient procedure, you have options.
I am attaching a link to the Medicare.gov website where you can find the ratings for hospitals, home healthcare providers, long-term care facilities and medical service providers.
If the ratings for a provider is lower than 3 or 3.5 stars, you may want to consider other providers.
Ratings can change monthly so do your homework. Here is the link:
The Annual Election Period begins in October.
If your medication’s have changed, if your doctors have changed, or if you’re hearing a lot about new plans and you’re just curious, book a time on my calendar pull out and I’ll be happy to review your options.
