      What You Need to Know

      From Dollars to “Donuts”…


      Getting Started

      Answers to common questions such as: When should you enroll?  How and when do you become eligible for Medicare?

      Enrollment Periods

      After your initial enrollment, Medicare allows you to make changes to your coverage at specific times each year. Here are those dates.

      Medicare Part D

      Medicare’s Part D is coverage for your medication needs and is provided by private insurance carriers. We’ll explain exactly how it works.

      Defining the ABC’s

      Medicare consists of Parts A, B, C, and D.   Step one is to learn the “ABC’s”, how they work, and your options with each part.

      Medicare’s “Donut Hole”

      This situation creates a coverage gap for some beneficiaries as they reach their annual coverage limits and have to pay more out-of-pocket.

      Advantage Plans

      Medicare Advantage Plans are provided by private insurance companies and can often save you money.

      Special Needs Plans

      SNPs are Advantage Plans that are tailored to meet the needs of individuals with certain health conditions or circumstances.

      Supplement Plans

      Insurance sold by private insurance companies to cover Medicare’s gaps.  Also called “MediGap” plans.

      My husband and I have had an excellent experience with Professor Medicare. Aidan and Craig were super responsive, professional, and easy to work with. It can be confusing to determine what is the right way to proceed with Medicare. They explained all our insurance options, ran the numbers, and did a great job of walking us through various scenarios so that we could confidently determine which policy was right for each of us individually. I highly recommend this company! Numerous friends recommended them to us and we can see why. Thank you, Professor Medicare for the great service you are providing.

He gave me a Medicare book and gave recommendations moving forward as I prepared for retirement two months later. He checked in every few weeks. Once I got the needed paperwork from my employer, we met again and he sat down with me again and made…

      Craig met me as soon as I walked in the door and took time to explain the Medicare process. He gave me a Medicare book and gave recommendations moving forward as I prepared for retirement two months later. He checked in every few weeks. Once I got the needed paperwork from my employer, we met again and he sat down with me again and made sure I was happy with the Medicare plan. Craig has been very helpful and professional and I’ve felt I’ve had direction in a situation that would have been quite confusing. I would highly recommend Craig and Professor Medicare for anyone wanting to navigate the Medicare system. The assistance was SO valuable!
