Planning note: Medicare open enrollment begins this week on October 15th and runs through December 7th. As a quick overview, Medicare is the primary healthcare system in the US for people age 65 and older. There are different plans available and I recommend consulting with a Medicare expert to decide what plan is right for you. In most cases, signing up for at least Part A, which provides hospital coverage and is free for most people, is recommended at age 65. If you delay signing up for Medicare, your costs may go up in the future. If you want more information regarding Medicare or would like to speak with an expert to review your plan, contact me and I’d be happy to provide additional resources and contacts.
