    • Q&A PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS
    • REVIEW We have just reviewed Medicare: What it is, who is eligible and what it covers. Based on the information we shared, you can see there are gaps in the coverage Medicare provides. You will always be responsible for paying your Premium(s) but there are options available to help relieve you of some of the financial strain you may have due to co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance amounts generally paid out of pocket. Tomorrow we will be discussing these coverage gaps and the options you have to reduce your expenses. You can register for tomorrow’s presentation at: www.MedicareGals.com
