Who Can I Call About Medicare Questions?

Published by ShopHealthcare

Let’s face it, Medicare with all its many parts can be confusing. Medicare questions like:

  • What’s covered and what’s not covered?
  • Are Medicare Advantages Plans better for me than a Medicare Supplement Plan?
  • Is a plan with $0 co-pays better for me than a plan with co-pays?
  • What kind of premiums can I expect?
  • Does coverage change as the years go by?

Medicare Help

To Get Answers to Questions, you can call Medicare directly or you can usually find a helpful agent nearby that can answer your questions. They will sit with you and help you determine which plan will work better for you considering how many medicines you take regularly, how often you find yourself going to the doctor and more. Since health insurance agents are required to take continuing education, they can be very helpful in assessing and determining the right course of action for you.
