Overview

Information and advice that you can use, in plain-spoken English. Real world examples included, called This Happens.

Maximize Your Medicare explains:
• What Medicare is
• How/when to enroll
• Your rights and options when you become eligible for Medicare
• The characteristics of Medicare Advantage and Medigap plans
• How Medicare and private plans work together
• How prescription drug benefits work under Medicare Part D
• The strengths and weakness of these plans

Maximize Your Medicare includes examples of real-life cases, which may be similar to the situation that you may face. The bottom line: you are not alone and the situation you face may be similar to the situation that others have faced, are facing, and will face in the future.

Maximize Your Medicare offers tips on how to get extra benefits and shows you benefits that you may not have known existed. In addition, there are special sections which describe some special groups of beneficiaries, from veterans to governmental employees to the seriously ill. Special attention is devoted to those that are part of employer-sponsored group plans.

The ebook will be updated with premiums, copays, and coinsurance for Medicare Part A and Part B for 2013 when announced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
The website www.maximizeyourmedicare.com provides the table of contents, a preview, cost sharing tables of original Medicare (Part A, Part B, and Part D), and information about the author.

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.
