Welcome to the Prepare for Medicare blog!

Welcome to the Prepare for Medicare blog!  I’m thrilled you’re here.  I’ll use this blog space on the website to keep you up-to-speed with things that affect your Medicare coverage, current events and important dates and timelines.

I wrote my book, Prepare for Medicare – The Insider’s Guide to Buying Medicare Insurance to help you quickly understand Medicare, narrow down your choices, purchase a plan with the help of an expert Medicare insurance agent or DIY, and move on with your life.

That said, Medicare rules change all the time and there’s always something new!  Keep paying attention to this space and I’ll post updates regularly.

If you’d like to submit a question, please email it to questions@prepareformedicare.com.

Thanks for reading!  Don’t forget sign up for the Prepare for Medicare newsletter.

To your wealth, wisdom, and wellness!
