Many older adults who are new to Medicare may not have a complete understanding of the costs they will incur, including monthly premiums, deductibles, and copayments. For some, Medigap—private supplemental insurance—can help to alleviate those expenses. Yet, just like Medicare, there are many rules about when and how an individual can enroll in Medigap, and considerations for individuals with low incomes who may qualify for subsidies to help with their Medicare costs.
In this webinar counselors will learn all about Medigap, including:
- The best times for your clients to enroll in Medigap, and their guaranteed issue rights
- The pros and cons of Medigap versus Medicare Advantage
- How upcoming changes to certain Medigap plans will affect newly eligible beneficiaries
- How Medigap coordinates with other coverage—and what to do with Medigap if your clients become eligible for the Medicare Savings Programs.
Note: We cannot issue CEUs or certificates of attendance for this webinar.
This webinar will be recorded and slides will be made available to all who are interested.
