Get ready if you are turning age 65 within the next 12 months. You are about to be bombarded with mailings from insurance companies and agents promoting Medicare Supplement polices and other Medicare plans. Recently, a man came into our office with a small laundry basket full of mail he had received for Medicare plans. This can be overwhelming to a person who has had limited choice for health insurance provided in the past by an employer.
What should you do when you are flooded with this material? Do a little research on you own! A great resource is the Kansas Insurance Department at www.ksinsurance.org or Medicare's website, www.medicare.gov.
The Kansas Insurance Department explains Medicare A,B,C, and D, and how a Medicare Supplement works. Learn the diffence between an issued age policy and an attained age policy for a Medicare Supplement. Explore how many options fit the type of coverage you need. You can also review the various Medicare Supplement plans and rates offered in Kansas. Notice that although the benefits for each type of Medicare Supplement plan are standardized, the premiums can vary dramatically. By doing a little research on your own, you can forget about the laundry basket of mail and move forward with an efficient plan best suited for you. You can also call us, we can meet one on one and within one hour you will understand Medicare and see all the plans available to you.
