Today, more than 60 million Americans rely on Medicare.
With healthcare costs spiraling upwards, choosing the right plan is one of the most important financial decisions a retiree can make. But Medicare offers more than 60 plans, so finding the right coverage at the best price can be confusing and complicated.
Helping Clients Reduce Premiums by Up to 5%
Financial advisors can deliver additional value to their clients by helping them navigate the Medicare plan selection and enrollment process.
Consider that nearly half of consumers who switch Medicare plans during the annual enrollment period, between October 15 and December 7, reduce their premiums by five percent or more.
With insights into client healthcare coverages and costs, advisors can create financial plans that take into account a more comprehensive view of clients’ health and wealth. Clients gain confidence and peace of mind knowing that their financial plan is protected from unexpected healthcare expenses.
