Throughout the day they assault your senses, ad nauseum. Call today to get all the wonderful Medicare benefits you are missing, and get money back every month too! Dental! Vision! free meals! free! free! Medicare ads on TV are relentless. But do they deliver what they promise. Before you dive in and start calling what is a national call center read the small print that appears on your screen. What? YOU SAY YOU CAN’T? BECAUSE IT JUST FLASHES BY TOO QUICKLY TO READ?
Well….here it is. I have capitalized the wording that is really important to make it easier to understand that in many cases this could be just another ” bait and switch ” presentation:
….IS NOT CONNECTED WITH OR ENDORSED BY ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY OR THE FEDERAL MEDICARE PROGRAM. Members can enroll in a plan ONLY IF THEY MEET CERTAIN CRITERIA. Free eyeglasses, meals, Hearing aids HAVE LIMITATIONS. COPAYMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS MAY APPLY. Free Transportation LIMITATIONS ON MILAGE AND NUMBER OF TRIPS. Requires coordination with the carrier for approval…..PLANS NOT AVAILABLE IN ALL AREAS…..BENEFITS SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS…THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LISTING OF PLANS AVAILABLE IN YOUR SERVICE AREA….
You are much better off working with a local broker who has your best interest in mind, who knows the local marketplace. Also, an experienced broker like LJR Insurance Solutions will make sure your doctor takes the plan you are interested in, without pressure, and all the B.S. you might run into when looking at all the “free” stuff online that is subject to so many limitations and restrictions. Beware! There are Medicare beneficiaries who have called who find themselves enrolled in a plan that they didn’t even know they were being enrolled in.
