What you need to know about Medicare to help your aging parents.   

Medicare Open Enrollment is October 15 – December 7. This is the time of year when people can make changes to Medicare health and prescription drug plans to better fit their needs.

Understanding what coverage your aging parent needs can be pretty confusing.

During this time your parents are likely getting phone calls trying to convince them to change their Medicare plan over the phone… or potentially have them give permission to change without them realizing it.

Kim & Mike Barnes talk with Independent Medicare Specialist Sherry Hoppmann to sort through Medicare.

They discuss why it’s important to do an annual review of your parent’s plan, why you might consider making a change, the difference between a Medicare Supplement Plan and a Medicare Advantage Plan, what your parents should never give out over the phone and free resources that can help you in this process.
