If you are ready to retire and know exactly how Medicare will take care of your health-care needs, good for you! You are in the minority. Odds are you need a little help understanding how Medicare works, and I am here to lend a hand.
I am a family physician by trade and have years of first-hand experience to guide the way. As a practicing doctor, early on I became frustrated by Medicare’s complicated web of rules and regulations. Why were some tests I ordered being denied coverage by Medicare? Why were some of my patients paying more for the same services compared to other patients? How could I get my patients the medications they needed during gaps in Medicare coverage? If I was confused, I knew my patients were more so.
