- "Medicare & You" an educational seminar by JBA Insurance Brokers
This is an educational seminar that is designed specifically for seniors who are either going onto Medicare, or are currently enrolled. The seminar talks about what your specific rights & entitlements are under Medicare. We cover the 4 separate parts of Medicare and how they each work. We discuss the significant differences between a supplemental/medigap plan and what is known as the MedAdvantage Plan, and how they are easily confused for one another. We talk about how to make sure you are completely aware of the differences between these 2 options, and how to make sure that you choose the option that best works for your specific needs. We talk about the steps you should take and the questions you should ask as you approach Medicare eligibility to prevent any common mistakes and forfeiture of benefits. For those already on Medicare, we'll talk about the options available to you and what steps to take in the event you're not happy with your plan and would like to consider the possibility of a change. Whether going onto Medicare for the 1st time, or if you've been on it for years, you will walk away informed and more knowledgeable than when you first walked in.
