Plan ahead for your health care insurance needs as you age

By Dale Nester, chair, MDA Insurance and MDA Services


MDA Insurance offers an exceptional member service in our Medicare Educational Seminars. I recently turned 65 myself and attended a Medicare seminar facilitated by MDA Insurance Medicare specialist, Rick Seely. These seminars provide unbiased information and enrollment guidance to help you make the best decisions for your own unique needs. Your decisions and actions over the months leading up to your 65th birthday will impact your health care coverage and finances for the rest of your life. Protect yourself against the common, potentially critical mistakes of underestimating the complexities of Medicare. Preparedness will ensure you avoid delayed coverage, late enrollment penalties, and missed “guaranteed issue” opportunities.
The seminar will focus on Medicare enrollment and related timeframes, parts of Original Medicare and how they work, items not covered by Original Medicare, and things that can cost you money out of pocket.
