How Do I Make the Most of My Medicare Benefits?

Medicare plan 65 Wenatchee Advantage medicare benifits

Hey Chelan County, It’s Suzie with Wenatchee Insurance. Today, we’re here to help you milk every drop of goodness out of your Medicare benefits – think of it as getting all the toppings on your sundae, without any extra charge!

Step 1: Embrace the Freebies (Preventive Services)

Medicare loves giving out freebies. Take advantage of preventive services like:

  • Annual Wellness Visits: Like a yearly tune-up for your car, but a lot less grease.
  • Screenings: For things like diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers – think of it as an annual “What’s going on in there?” check.
  • Vaccinations: Stay flu-free and fabulous with covered vaccines.

Example Time!

Bob never misses his annual wellness visit. His doctor keeps him in tip-top shape, and Bob feels like he’s just had a makeover on a reality TV show.

Step 2: Manage Your Meds (Pharmacy Hacks)

Your Part D plan is your ticket to affordable meds, but let’s make sure you’re really saving:

  • Check the formulary: It’s like reading the menu before you order – know what’s covered.
  • Use preferred pharmacies: Some pharmacies are like that one pizza place that always has a deal.
  • Go generic: Just as tasty, but a lot cheaper – like getting the store-brand cereal.

Example Time!

Sally May loves a good bargain. By sticking to her plan’s preferred pharmacies and opting for generic meds, she saves enough each month to treat herself to something nice – like a day at the beauty salon.

Step 3: Use Extra Benefits (Hidden Gems)

If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, don’t ignore those extra benefits:

  • Vision, dental, and hearing: Routine exams, glasses, hearing aids – it’s like getting free sprinkles on your sundae.
  • Fitness programs: Many plans include gym memberships.
  • Telehealth services: See your doctor without leaving your couch – perfect for pajama days.

Example Time!

Steve stays active with her plan’s including gym membership. He’s a regular at the gym, where he’s known as “The Silver Swole.”

Step 4: Know Your Out-of-Pocket Costs (Avoid Surprise Bills)

Keep an eye on your out-of-pocket costs. This includes:

  • Deductibles: The upfront cost before your plan kicks in – like the cover charge at a club.
  • Copayments/Coinsurance: Your share of the cost – think of it as splitting the dinner bill on a night out.
  • Out-of-pocket maximum: The most you’ll pay in a year before your plan picks up everything else–the save your farm number.

Example Time!

Tom keeps track of his medical expenses like a hawk. By understanding his plan’s costs, he avoids those “What the heck?!” moments when the bill arrives.
