Medicare and Veterans Options, with Samantha George


Samantha George from Humana talks about medicare options for veterans. The first two parts are the original medicare: part A is for hospital care, part B is medical insurance for doctor’s visits. Part C, also known as medicare advantage, is an alternative for A and B that provided additional services and some drug coverage. Part D is prescription drug coverage, an optional one but valuable if you have certain prescriptions. If you don’t sign up when you’re first eligible, you are permanently penalized with an annual fee, so it’s important to talk with a licensed agent and asses the appropriate coverage for you, as it stays with you for life. Eligibility typically begins at age 65, unless you qualify early through disease or disability.
