Do you qualify for or already have Medicare as a personal insurance? Whether this is your first time choosing a Medicare insurance plan or if you are renewing for the 20th year, picking the right plan for you can be tricky. Hopefully you have had the opportunity to talk with friends, families, and professionals about what plan is best for you. If you are still trying to decide though, you have until Sunday, December 7 to select your plan for 2015.
The National Council on Aging has a number of resources available to consumers, including a fact sheet "The Five Biggest Mistakes Boomers Make When Enrolling in Medicare" and the website My Medicare Matters(R). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) also has a lot of resources on their webpage. If you want to talk to a person between now and Sunday about which Medicare plan is best for you, call 1-800-633-4227.
