How Joe Namath Transformed Medicare Planning
About This Episode
When it comes to choosing Medicare Supplement plan options, new-to-Medicare beneficiaries are opting for lower cost plans. During the first six months of 2022, some 38% opted for Medigap Plan N. Just over half (51%) selected Plan G coverage. Nearly 6% enrolled in a High Deductible Plan G (HDG) plan.
My guests today will discuss those and other trends in Medicare planning and how advisors can best help their clients with their healthcare needs.
