I am going to review some of the most asked questions about Medicare changes in 2013. This is a deep and wide subject and I am only touching of a few of the most common issues. While we do know Medicare from a financial standpoint is in trouble today (heading for toward a $37 trillion dollar deficit ), we still want and need this social system. And while there will be increases (as with everything in our society presently), there are also some very positive changes and savings that should be discussed.
The ONE standard that stays the same in my business, year –to-year is, DO NOT TAKE AWAY MY MEDICARE. It does not matter what side of the political debate a person is on, MEDICARE is taking care of hundreds of thousands Americans that could not survive without it. And EVERY year, the benefit options for coverage have increased, due to government and private insurance mandates. CHANGE IS INEVITABLE AND IT IS A GOOD THING.
