Senior Citizens – and many retirees already benefiting from Social Security Retirement – come October 1st will be quickly enrolling for Medicare.
But, hey, what happens if you’re already a retiree on Medicare? What does the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, mean to you? Matthew Eyles, executive vice president of a healthcare consulting and research firm quickly states, “For Medicare-eligible people, nothing is really changing.”
So, what is? Well, improvements include shrinking the famous “donut hole” and providing beneficiaries with a cost-free annual preventative check-up. For folks who couldn’t get Medicare coverage due to being younger than 65 years of age or having not worked at least 10 years in a job that required payroll tax payments things are going to become much easier.
