Understanding and being able to communicate the various parts of the Medicare program is a challenging task. Jae Oh describes in ordinary terms the interconnection between the federal program and various types of supplemental insurance programs in a way the average person can comprehend. There is a lot of free information available, however this book is a must read for the health care professional who will advise patients on how to maximize their senior health care coverage---excellent book!.<

While there was some useful information about Medicare, and especially Medigap policies, this book was poorly written and apparently not copy-edited. The author makes a case for carefully considering a Medigap rather than a Medicare Advantage policy. Certainly most people should consider both, and I do credit author Jae Oh with pointing this out in some detail. The Web site mentioned in the book did not exist.
