Common Medicare Mistakes You can Easily Avoid

The more you educate yourself on the Medicare program, the more likely you will make wise decisions and avoid some of the common mistakes. It’s advisable to begin this learning process well before your 65th birthday if only to ensure your time investment pays off in the future. Whether it’s for yourself or your spouse, you want to ensure your coverage is sufficient for your healthcare needs. The Medicare program is relatively straightforward. However, many mistakes could result in costly consequences, including: Failure to Adhere to the Initial Enrollment Period Contrary to popular belief, senior citizens are not automatically signed up for Medicare by age 65. You will be automatically enrolled if you are currently receiving Social Security benefits. Everyone’s initial enrollment period differs, beginning ten months before your birth month. You could experience higher Part B premiums by failing to sign up correctly. An Insufficient Medigap Plan It should not come as a surprise to learn that your Medicare plan doesn’t cover all of your healthcare expenses throughout retirement. These uncovered expenses are known as Medigap and typically include coinsurance, copays, deductibles, and more. Inadvertently Raising Your Part B Premiums By failing to adhere to the initial enrollment period, you could suffer higher Part B premiums, as previously mentioned. Additionally, Part B premiums are not the same for every individual. Whether you have already begun collecting Social Security, the premiums could differ significantly.
