Webinar Description

There are three main ways to get health insurance: through an employer, by buying a policy directly from an insurance company, or through a governmental plan (i.e., Medicare, Medicaid, etc.). Regardless of how one gets health insurance, they may have choices. Open enrollment comes up once a year and allows everyone to make changes to their coverage or to pick a new plan. This webinar will cover the key things to look for when comparing plans and how to choose a plan that minimizes out of pocket costs.

Webinar Description

There are almost 50 million Americans who rely on Medicare for their health care needs. Whether one has been receiving Medicare for years, or this is the first year they are eligible, they may still have questions about how to choose coverage. This webinar will cover the basics of the Medicare system, including how to become eligible, the different “Parts,” and what to think about during open enrollment.

Depending on the type of health insurance coverage you have, there is a process for appealing your insurance company’s decision. This webinar will describe the appeals process for private health insurance, employer-sponsored health insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid, to help you get the medical care you need.
