Maximizing Your Clients Medicare:  

Take the mystery out of Medicare. Educate yourself and your clients. Everyone knows that it is important to consider Medicare at age 65. But to know the rules the government has imposed is often confusing and overwhelming. In rare cases, penalties may be accessed if your client does not sign up at the right time. Our presenter, Mark Brownstein, CSA®, Director of Medicare with Emerald Medicare, will guide you through sorting out the many options and plans that are available to your Medicare eligible clients.

Specifically, Mark can guide you on these topics:

  • How and when to sign up for Medicare? At 65 or when one retires?
  • What do your clients need to know before leaving their company group or retiree plan?
  • What are Medicare Parts A, B, C, and D?
  • Explaining basic Medicare coverage, its cost, and the need for supplemental insurance.
  • The need to review doctors and medications closely.
  • Understand what is, and is not, included in the MAGI income calculation for Medicare purposes.
  • Know how to spot situations where clients may legally and appropriately defer Medicare Part B, saving money and allowing more time to plan for, and around, its eventual impact.
  • Understand how IRMAA can dramatically increase the healthcare costs for higher income clients, and what options exist—including Social Security deferral, Roth Conversions, —to potentially mitigate the long-term impact of the IRMAA premium.
  • Learn of restrictions within Medicare rules—including the use of COBRA and HSAs.
  • Appreciate why mass affluent clients tend to focus on prescription drug costs, out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, and issues around access to care and why these clients value strategies to maximize benefits.
