Bob Witherspoon and I are currently working together to gain a better understanding of the CMS recommendations for CIP Healthcare options starting on February 2014. It is our goal to comprehend the various plan recommendations, their benefits & features as well as all the possible gaps such as the deductibles and out of pocket costs. How does the various CMS Med Advantage plans compare to the traditional Medicare Supplements and MedAdvantage Plans? Once you have those facts, the facts should assist you in the process of making a valuable healthcare decision easier starting this November 12, 2013.
Just last week, I spoke with one of your TCAA member; we discussed exploring a competitive analysis for his wife’s current Medicare plan coverage. Then, I pursued analyzing the same existing plan with the same benefits, hence I found several national companies that offer the same plan for a lower cost. Consequently, it will allow them to save $600 a year just by switching their provider. THINK ABOUT THAT!
Again, it is my goal to understand your budget, lifestyle and healthcare requirements, and pursue the best optimal fit to accommodate your needs. Please be patient, as we have time but please send me a note or call me should want to ask me any questions or make an appointment to review 2014 options.
