When it is time to select your Medicare plan, choose carefully and make sure the plan will be affordable. Remember Medicare insurance is not free and most people pay a premium for Part B benefits. Depending on the medicare option selected, you could have additional plan premiums, deductibles, and copays for physician visits, hospitalizations, x-rays etc.
Medicare is a valuable benefit and many options are available to fit your needs and budget. So review your budget and choose the right plan at the right price.
