What Is Medicare?
Signing up for Medicare can be pretty confusing. Kim breaks down what Medicare is, when one is eligible, the different ways to enroll, the most common plans and what they cover, and costs associated.
What Does Medicare Cover?
Kim gives you an in depth look at all that Medicare covers, examining Part A, Part B, Part C (Medicare Advantage), and Part D – allowing for a more informed decision to be made in regard to which plan may make the most sense for you.
Medicare Part A
In this video, Kim dives deeper into Medicare Part A, discussing: when one is eligible, costs and when they come into play, where the coverage is utilized, deductibles/co-pays, when Social Security factors in, and how to enroll.
Medicare Part C
A common question received at K6 Medicare is whether Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) is better than Original Medicare. Because, once you are enrolled in Medicare, you have to decide whether you want to join Part C or Part D. Listen in as Kim defines the primary differences between Original Medicare and the Medicare Advantage Plans offered, and discusses the different types of Medicare Advantage plans available (HMO, PPO, PFFS, & Special Needs Plans, & Medicare Savings Accounts).
Medicare Part D
Prescription drug plans are not covered by Original Medicare. Therefore, one of the most important decisions you will make annually with your Medicare coverage is what Medicare Part D plan you will choose. In this video, Kim shares what factors are important to consider and know when shopping for Medicare Part D coverage.
Medicare Supplement Plans
Medicare Supplement plans partner with Original Medicare and Medicare Part D plans by offsetting the costs or the gaps in their coverage. Offered by private insurance companies, these plan options are all fully regulated by the government – meaning you get the same benefits regardless of where the plan is purchased. Listen in as Kim breaks down what Medicare Supplement plans can cover, underwriting and when it may be required, and more.
