Video: How to Choose the Right Medicare Plan

 

How do you decide which Medicare plan is right for you? Start by asking yourself the following questions. Am I in good health? How often do I see my doctor? How much can I afford each month? Am I willing to change doctors if it means lower healthcare costs? Answering these questions will help you to select the right Medicare plan or plans for you.

If you discover that your current healthcare coverage meets your needs, or you get retiree coverage from your employer, then great, you are in good shape. Be sure to see how your current coverage works with Medicare. If you think your coverage is lacking, there are plenty of options available to make sure you have all the coverage you need.

When you apply for Medicare, find out if you’re eligible for help paying for your medical and drug plan costs. Contact your local Social Security Office to learn more.
