If your postal carrier has suddenly become your best friend and started delivering buckets of mail from insurance companies all over the country, chances are your 65th birthday is coming up soon. You’ll receive packets, postcards, and letters containing information about Medicare, Medigap, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D, and other seemingly foreign words.
It can be overwhelming to try and wade through this mountain of paperwork on your own. Do you need a friendly face to sit down with you to explain what Medicare is all about, and help you make some critical decisions about health insurance?
