Affordable and accessible health care is one of the four fundamental pillars of a secure retirement. Once an individual reaches age 65 or is permanently disabled, Medicare covers a portion of medical costs. But how do you determine how much coverage Medicare provides, and what are your options for supplementing that amount? What if you retire before age 65? Long-term care options and insurance are an additional economic concern. And finally, many questions/decisions exist regarding the new Medicare Part D Drug program and other prescription alternatives, including reimportation. Please join our discussion to clarify what your retirement health care options are, how to evaluate your needs and the associated costs, how private and entitlement programs work, and where to get reliable and current resource information.
