I Walked Outside, And Was SHOCKED
In Case You Missed Yesterday’s “FLASH” Email
Medicare premiums much higher in 2022 (click here to read).
It has always been the case that my fave book on Medicare (ahem, pre-order here) has strongly emphasized that:
Medicare will continue to face demographic and fiscal pressure.
You need to adjust your plans, in order to save money and get the best-suited benefits. The carriers will continue to adjust and compete, which has been largely in the consumer’s favor, IF AND ONLY IF you stay updated.
Options are overwhelmingly in your favor, unlike almost any other financial and insurance matter, if you understand what you are doing and have been shepherded across the finish line.
If you are new here, welcome and thank you, get ready to hear this about 8 trillion more times. If you are not new here, then the smell in the air is the reek of repetition. For some, it’ll take all 8 trillion times, until they get it.
Medicare Annual Election Period Ends Dec 7
Looks like 3 weeks is plenty of time, right? NOPE.
Here’s a short list of stuff we need to accomplish.
I need information about your existing status.
I need to know if you have family members that would be affected.
I need to get your healthcare providers and prescriptions.
I need to show you what is available.
You need to actually understand the options and the timelines.
We need to execute.
There are roadblocks.
There may be a different timeline for you because of your employer (or spouse’s employer) deadlines.
Thanksgiving and Black Friday, no one shops for Medicare options during this period. People travel and have family gatherings.
We have Michigan vs OSU in 2 weeks (it’s fun to say OHOWIHATEOHIOSTATE, it sounds catchy, even though I’m not really that type, it just feels right to say it). The following day, Dallas Cowboys are going to face Patrick Mahomes, after destroying the Falcons today.
