Medicare enrollment used to be easy... but not anymore.
JUST ONE Medicare mistake can cost you thousands of dollars and keep you from getting healthcare services.
Plus, most of these mistakes cannot be undone.
Don't make the critical error of underestimating the complexities of Medicare. The following are just a few examples of thousands of people who make Medicare enrollment mistakes. As a result, they'll overpay for health coverage, will not be able to get certain types of coverage, and/or may not be able to get needed healthcare services or see their preferred healthcare providers – for the rest of their lives.
TOTAL COST: $5,200
Plus, Carol may NEVER be able to get a Medicare Supplement plan.
CASE STUDY: Enrolling Too soon
When Carol turned 65, a professional told her that she had to enroll in Medicare in order to avoid late enrollment penalties. Following this guidance, Carol enrolled in Medicare Parts A, B and D.
Unfortunately, Carol also remained covered by her husband's employer plan. This means that Carol enrolled in Medicare prematurely – paying $5,200 over a 20 month period for Part B and D coverage that she could never use. Plus, she no longer has a Guaranteed Issue Right. This means that, if she has any prexisting health conditions, she may NEVER be able to get a Mediare Supplement plan.
Bottomline: For just $65, i65 could've saved Carol thousands of dollars.
TOTAL COST: $9,814+
Plus, Tom will pay a 10% late enrollment penalty for the rest of his life.
CASE STUDY: Enrolling Too late
Did you know? Your Initial Enrollment Period for Medicare is three months before your birth month, your birth month, and three months after your birth month... UNLESS your birthday falls on the first of the month. Then, everything shifts ahead one month.
Tom was not aware of this nuance and missed his Initial Enrollment Period. As a result, the next time Tom could enroll in Medicare was during the General Enrollment Period (January to March of each year). Then his Medicare coverage wouldn't begin until July.
The average monthly premium of a private healthcare plan for someone 64 years of age is $701 — a total of $9,814 for 14 months of coverage! Plus, Tom will pay a 10% late enrollment penalty added to his monthly Medicare premiums for the rest of his life.
Bottomline: i65 would've saved Tom more than $10,000.
Over the last decade, Medicare has become incrasingly more complex. Part D, donut holes, Medigap, Medicare Advantage, IRMAA, late enrollment penalties, Supplement insurance, Initial Enrollment periods, Special enrollment periods, and much more.
However, the way today's Baby Boomers learn about Medicare is very similar to 10, 20, and even 30 years ago. Meaning, you must conduct lengthy research about Medicare regulations or rely on an insurance agent who's job it is to sell specific plans. And, just one Medicare mistake can cost you thousands and impact your access to health coverage for the rest of your life.
