Fort Worth, Texas -

Boomer Benefits, an award-winning insurance agency based in Fort Worth, TX, is inviting seniors and anyone who needs help understanding Medicare to sign up for its 6-day email mini-course on the topic.

Medicare, signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965, assured seniors that they will have the resources to look after their health and well-being even after retirement. Over the years, the program has undergone several additions, amendments, and tweaks by subsequent administrations. Even today, when over 60 million people have coverage due to Medicare, the benefits offered by the program are in constant flux.

The spokesperson for Boomer Benefits explains, “To begin with, there are 4 parts to Medicare – Part A, Part B, Part C, and the most recent, Part D. To give a broad overview, Part A covers inpatient costs, Part B covers outpatient costs, Part C fills in the gaps left by Part A and Part B, and Part D covers the costs of prescription medications. Part C, also called Medicare Advantage, cannot be enrolled in with Social Security and is instead offered by private health insurance providers. To make all of this even more complicated, those who qualify for Medicare can choose to not opt for Part C and instead fill in the gaps by instead going for the many Medicare Supplement Plans or Medigap Plans.”

The spokesperson continues, “There are 10 Medicare Supplement Plans, and you may or may not qualify for all based on when you were eligible for Medicare. Medicare Supplement Plans are sold by private insurers and they usually cover the remainder of the bill after Medicare has paid its share. Plan F, Plan G, and Plan N are the most popular but you can only qualify for Plan F if you were eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020. So, in summary, it is a complex program that, though it saves lives, does not make itself easily comprehendible.”

Boomer Benefits’ Medicare mini-course aims to simplify the many gotchas that the Medicare program comes with. Designed to be completed in 6 days by dedicating just 5 minutes per day, the email course from Boomer Benefits gives enrollees an overview of how Medicare works, what it covers, what it costs, how and when to enroll, and what the supplemental coverage options are.

Upon signing up for the course, enrollees will immediately get a welcome email where they can download the company’s New To Medicare Checklist and a bonus worksheet. The worksheet can help participants calculate their estimated expenses for Medicare. Boomer Benefits will then send, to those who have signed up, 6 emails over the next 6 days, each containing one quick lesson about the byzantine workings of Medicare.

The day 1 email will discuss the 4 parts of Medicare and what each part covers. On day 2, enrollees will learn about the costs of each part of Medicare. In the third email, they will be introduced to the several ways in which they can sign up for Medicare. On day 4, participants will learn the exact questions to ask their doctors to determine which Medicare plan is best for them. The day 5 email discusses Part D of Medicare and the costly penalties that may be incurred if one doesn’t sign up when they are first eligible. Finally, on day 6, enrollees will understand the difference between Medigap and Medicare Advantage and the benefits of both.

The email course is hosted by Danielle Kunkle, co-founder at Boomer Benefits and a well-known Medicare insurance expert and member of the Forbes Finance Council. She is also the author of the #1 best-selling Medicare book on Amazon – “10 Costly Medicare Mistakes You Can’t Afford To Make.” Danielle and her team have been helping Americans understand Medicare for over 15 years across 49 states and her blogs, essays, and interviews about Medicare have been widely published.
