health insuranceMost of us have been buying health insurance all our adult lives—through our employers or on our own. Then Medicare comes along, and it seems like a whole new ball game.

Medicare has its own language and rules. There are “parts” and “gaps” and “coinsurance,” for example. On top of that, each of us is now a team of one. Medicare is individual insurance, while many of us are used to family and spousal coverage.

So it’s back to the basics, starting with some simple questions like:

  • When can I enroll?
  • What if I’m still working?
  • How much does Medicare cost?
  • What does Medicare cover?
  • Where can I get information about Medicare plans?

Luckily there’s a quick, hassle-free way to get up to speed. It’s an online tutorial you can go through at your own pace. It explains everything in simple language and includes videos and links to more information and resources.

The Medicare Basics Tutorial can be completed in 30 minutes or less. Or take more time, if you like. The important thing is that you will get need-to-know information about:

  • Medicare eligibility and enrollment
  • Original Medicare (Parts A and B)
  • Medicare Advantage (Part C)
  • Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D)
  • Medicare supplement insurance
  • And much more

Conclusion

The game is on! Learn the basics about Medicare so you can make an informed decision when the time comes.
