Would you like the possibility of getting free eyeglasses, free gym memberships, and 75% off prescriptions? Well, who wouldn’t? If any of these sound good to you then you’ll wanna pay very close attention right now. Now earlier we polled our audience and asked who has Medicare. Several of you do, and one person had a couple of questions about her coverage. Now, Suzanne where are you? Right here. Okay, stand up if you will. What would you like to know? I’m over 65 and I have Medicare. As I age, medical issues will probably come up. What’s the best way I can make sure to get the care I need without paying too much? That’s a great question, and since many people assume Medicare covers all of their health needs, we need to talk about it. So to help us get some clarity, please welcome Andromada Deberry, a licensed insurance agent and spokesperson for medicareadvantage.com How are you? Good to see you. (applause) I’ve had so many questions about this ’cause we talked about it once before. So Andromada, how can Suzanne ensure her healthcare needs are met? Well, hi Suzanne. Original Medicare parts A and B provide hospital and medical coverage, but it doesn’t cover everything. Well as people get older, many of them end up on fixed income and medical expenses can reach thousands and sometimes tens of thousands dollars, so what is a good option for people like Suzanne who are concerned about cost? Suzanne, that’s where Medicare Advantage comes in with plans that are affordable. Many plans have $0 monthly premiums. Some even have $0 copays or no deductible at all. And while Medicare alone has no annual out of pocked limit, Medicare Advantage has an annual limit on what you are responsible to pay out of pocket and this helps protect both your health and your pocketbook. It sounds like people can save a lot of money with these plans, seriously. Yes, absolutely. In fact, many people have lowered their out of pocket cost by an average of over $1,200 with a Medicare Advantage plan. How’s that sound, Suzanne? Sounds great. What will Medicare Advantage cover that I’m not already getting? Well, Medicare is great but as I said a little earlier, it doesn’t cover everything. However, Medicare Advantage plans can provide coverage for things like vision, including free eyeglasses, dental, including dentures, and extractions, hearing, including free hearing aids, free gym memberships, free meal delivery, and you may even qualify for a 75% discount on prescription drugs. Whoa. Some plans even offer in home support services and transportation to the doctor. Well, I understand some plans may include discounts on everyday items as well. That’s true. Many plans offer what’s called an over the counter allowance, and that helps pay for those everyday items, the vitamins, the supplements, even incontinence supplies, blood pressure, and diabetic supplies. How can people enroll to get this extra coverage? Well, we’ve set up a special hotline for your audience to call for a free, no obligation benefits review right now. They can call 1-800-520-5996 and speak to a licensed insurance agent who can review their current Medicare benefits and look up what additional plans and benefits are available to them. You can call 24/7. Look, you don’t wanna miss out on this opportunity to learn about and enroll in these great Medicare Advantage plans, and the time is right now. And, we’re talking about this ’cause I’ve gotten a lot of questions about it and the deadline is coming up, it’s December 7th, and for many people this is the only time of year to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan or switch to a new one. So once again, the medicareadvantage.com hotline number is 1-800-520-5996. And I’d really like to thank medicareadvantage.com and Adromada Deberry for being here today.
