Medicare education presentation
Using a power point presentation to help illustrate the finer points of Medicare, Keith Hanson of Minot (www.minotmedicare.com) will be addressing one of the biggest concerns of senior citizens today. Hanson is a featured presenter for the 2nd Annual Minot Daily News Senior Expo and is certain to be well received as his message is of importance to all who are Medicare eligible or soon will be.
“I will be presenting the basics of Medicare, what Part A is and what it costs, Part B and other levels too,” said Hanson. “I will not be representing any particular insurance company but rather providing essential information.”
Hanson will detail various Medicare enrollment periods, covering issues such as costs and penalties, and explaining how different products work for seniors.
“Even those who has signed up already wonder if they’ve done it correctly,” said Hanson. “I’ll explain what the cost is for various plans and how it can vary.”
Hanson stresses that “one size doesn’t fit all” when it comes to Medicare, especially when it comes to prescription drugs.
“It’s very individualized,” explained Hanson. “You have to choose the right plan to begin with. There’s Cost Plans that fit older seniors much better than others. There are 28 different drug plans in the Minot area.”
As an example, Hanson said, he advised one person of a way to save $11,900 per year on prescription drugs.
“I really care about this. I’ve seen seniors in bad situations,” Hanson said. “I will direct people to the right company even if I don’t get a commission.”
The Medicare Annual Election Period is Oct. 15 – Dec. 7. That is the time, says Hanson, that people can review and make adjustments to their health insurance plans.
Hanson emphasized that, although he is an Independent Health Insurance Broker, no specific insurance company plan information will be shared at this event.
