Bethea hosts Medicare seminar
More than 60 people attended the Medicare Made Clear Seminar held at the Bethea Retirement Community on Jan. 27. Sponsored by UnitedHealthcare, Joel Iacopelli presented the luncheon program explaining how Medicare, supplemental policies and drug prescription plans work. He also took questions from the audience.
In choosing a drug plan he mentioned that some offer a lower price guarantee which may be beneficial to some. However, he stressed there is no “one plan fits all.” Each plan is different and the importance of comparing plans to find the one that works best for you. He also noted that rates on supplemental plans can change at anytime and suggested finding out how often and how much the rates have increased on the policies being considered.
