If your in it you know that this is a confusing mess at best. What can you do?
Utilize a Medicare Advisor. A Medicare Advisor is Certified with Multiple Insurancecarriers, Licensed in multiple states and Certified with the Center for Medicare andMedicaid Services. He has to recertify each year as well as complete ContinuingEducation so there is no motive to put you into one company over an other. He is in the best position to advise you on the plusses and minuses of each plan. The advice is free as your Advisor is compensated by the carrier if he/she can help you.
