Medicare can be daunting and confusing and quite difficult to grasp.
This is true in the case of existing Medicare beneficiaries as well as their care givers. And, it’s especially true for those prospective new enrollees who are about to turn 65 and have to deal with trying to understand their Medicare options for the very first time.
The Medicare Minute was created and sponsored by the Medicare Rights Center to help address and alleviate some of the confusion surrounding Medicare. The program consists of an ongoing series of free monthly educational programs designed to equip people with the knowledge to more clearly understand their Medicare options, to make more informed decisions, and to ultimately utilize their Medicare coverage more effectively.
Volunteers from across the country with experience in how health benefits work serve as facilitators for the Medicare Minute educational programs. And, bbg65Plus is now certified and appointed to serve as a Facilitator of the Medicare Minute program.
The Medicare Minute educational program is available free of charge to employers, organizations, and community groups interested in educating members on the ABC’s (and Part D) of Medicare. And now readers of our blog will be able to read a summary of some of highlights and key tips from those programs in this space each month.
