June is Men's Health Month

June is Men’s Health Month, a perfect time for you (and the men in your life) to take the steps to live a safer, healthier life.

Did you ever put off doing a task or getting a test and later wished you’d just gotten it over with? If you’re a man with Medicare, now’s the time to talk with your doctor about whether you should get screened for prostate cancer, for colorectal cancer, or for both.

Plan F or Plan N: What most agents don't tell you… or don’t know.

 

Medicare Supplement plans, often called Medigap plans by Medicare, are plans that work in combination with Medicare.  The most popular plans are Plan F and Plan N.

Medicare Diabetes Coverage

Diabetes is a common medical condition in which the body either doesn't make enough insulin or doesn't respond properly to the insulin it makes.  A healthy body uses insulin to process sugars, but when there isn't enough insulin in the body, too much sugar stays in your blood.  If your blood sugar remains consistently high, your doctor may diagnose you with diabetes.

Medicare and Cataracts Surgery

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world, according to the World Health Organization.  Even though they can occur at any age, cataracts are most common later in life - so common that they're considered part of the aging process.  If you have Medicare, it’s a good idea to understand what cataracts are, as well as their symptoms and treatments.

Retiree Plans & Medicare

If you have retiree insurance, it is a good idea to sign up for Medicare when you first become eligible at age 65.

According to Medicare rules, retiree insurance plans pay secondary to Medicare.  This means that Medicare pays first for your health care, and then your retiree coverage pays for some or all of the remaining costs.  If you do not sign up for Medicare, you may have problems accessing coverage.
