How much do your Medicare clients spend on their coverage in a year? Do your clients know what out-of-pocket expenses they can expect? In this episode, we explore the costs your clients pay out-of-pocket for Medicare, whether they've got Original Medicare, a Medicare Supplement, a stand-alone Medicare Part D plan, Medicare Advantage, or MAPD. We look beyond premiums, breaking down out-of-pocket exposure into deductibles, coinsurance, copays, prescription drug costs, medical supplies, ancillary expenses, networks, and other deciding factors. It's a must-listen for every insurance agent!
