Medicare for Financial Planners: Medicare Options - Peach New Media - Online Events by Peach New Media

Medicare for Financial Planners is a 10-module program designed for planners wanting in-depth knowledge of the rules and regulations regarding Medicare to help clients navigate the Medicare maze. While planners can choose to complete the entire program, there is no specific sequence and each course module can be taken individually on its own.

In this course, Medicare Options, you will learn how to help your clients make an informed decision about Medicare coverage, first by learning the two different ways that Medicare benefits are offered: through Original Medicare administered directly through the federal government and through Medicare Advantage Plans offered by private insurance companies that contract with the federal government. We will talk about the broad categories of care, program costs, and excluded services under Original Medicare, and then see how Medicare Advantage Plans must cover all the same services, but may do so with different costs, restrictions, and additional benefits. You will also learn about Medigap supplemental policies and public benefits available to help those with lower incomes afford care.
