Over the years, we have found Medicare members make a handful of the same common mistakes. These mistakes are easily avoidable, but can prove costly if made. At Burchfield Insurance we take the time to carefully walk our clients through the Medicare process and eliminate any surprises.
In the wake of COVID-19, telehealth has taken center stage. Doctor’s offices remain empty or at reduced capacity as elective procedures are put on hold. The spotlight has been directed towards telehealth services as an alternative to traditional avenues of care. With that, we have dedicated a post to highlighting the benefits of telehealth and the value it delivers.
As members move into the Medicare delivery system, they soon come to realize Original Medicare will not cover all of their medical expenses. Members are left with deductible, copayment and coinsurance responsibilities, with no cap on the amount of out-of-pocket costs they can incur over the course of the year. For this reason, nearly all Medicare members choose to add additional coverage, giving them predictable healthcare costs and valuable peace of mind knowing their out-of-pocket responsibilities fit their budget.
