Purpose of This Presentation
Every year Medicare changes in many ways. Beneficiary’s costs; including premiums, deductibles, and co-pays can go up, down, or remain the same. Rules and requirements about how to receive services can change and the steps beneficiaries need to take to protect themselves are fluid. What works one year might not work the next. It is the purpose of this program to shed some light on Medicare beneficiary’s entitlements, rights, and responsibilities under Medicare. This is not a sales presentation program. No specific insurance plans will be discussed during this program.
