					Medicare Planning

One of the major benefits of obtaining your
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
award is qualifying for Medicare coverage.
But understanding which Medicare options
could work best can be time-consuming, confusing and frustrating without sufficient guidance.
Allsup Medicare Advisor simplifies the Medicare plan selection process by educating you on the
choices that are available and identifying the plans that best meet your specific medical and
financial needs.


Understanding Medicare Options
Traditional Medicare usually is not costly (Part A for hospital coverage is free; Part B for medical
coverage is relatively inexpensive), but coverage can be limited — which is why many people
seek out supplemental insurance (Medigap) and prescription drug coverage (Part D), both at an
extra cost.
Medicare Advantage plans, at a minimum, cover everything offered by traditional Medicare
Parts A and B. Many Medicare Advantage plans also include dental care, hearing and vision
screening, and prescription drug coverage, often at a minimal cost.

Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) plans are not provided within the traditional
Medicare program. There are hundreds of available plans to choose from and some plans’
formularies, or list of covered drugs, are more extensive than others.
Medigap (supplemental insurance) plans cover the gaps in traditional Medicare, usually
covering the cost of co-pays, deductibles and other Medicare-related costs.


Making an Informed Choice
With so many options available it is difficult to know which of them is right for you. Choosing the
wrong coverage can be a costly mistake and can result in thousands of dollars of unnecessary
out-of-pocket expenses.

Consulting with a Medicare advisor can remove a significant burden during the Medicare plan
selection process by providing the knowledge and guidance needed to help you easily and
confidently choose the plan that’s right for you. With assistance from a specialist, you can avoid
the confusion, worry and often expensive mistakes involved in choosing a Medicare plan by
yourself. Allsup offers unbiased Medicare consultations to help you determine which coverage
is right for you. Allsup Medicare Advisor considers the cost of your healthcare coverage and
budget to determine which plan options work best, helping you make an informed decision.
