MYM Podcast 60 ACA Reckless Start, Reckless Repeal?

2/15/2017
More
Partisans, Leave Your Politics At The Door If you are an extremist (I love Obamacare to death, I hate Obamacare to death), then here's one piece of advice: DON'T LISTEN, YOU WILL BE UNSATISFIED WITH WHAT YOU HEAR. If, However... You want an even-handed thought about the ACA War, and the effect it has had, the many misrepresentations when the ACA was enacted, and now, the repeal and replace process, then that is different altogether. You are more than welcome here. I have said it in...

You Know It's A Problem When... Kaiser Health News is as good as it gets, but it created the wrong title for this article. That is a huge problem, because we cannot rely on KHN as a very good news source, then where is an everyday person to go (other than here, obviously).

Not Only In Michigan People can say I'm just a fear-monger. People can say "You're a seller, of course that is your view." The flip side of that coin is: "Maybe he has been paying attention, listening to the how confused everyone is, how under-informed everyone is, no matter where they are, no matter what their health or financial circumstances are, just maybe." Listen to the Confusion You'll hear the confusion, you'll hear the worry. If you think this is unique to this episode, which...

Real-Time, Real-Life Event Validates the Book, the Podcast, the Newsletter, the.... Background: the single most popular Medigap plan in Michigan is Plan C called Legacy. It was affordable, it had NO medical underwriting, and its premium did not change through time...until now. Listeners of the Podcast, readers of the Newsletter, attendees at live seminars are told one thing, in different forms. The world is unlikely to stay the same, when you add that to the OBVIOUS demographic and...

MYM Podcast 50: Brexit, Medicare & Retirement Planning

6/26/2016
More
This Just In: We Don't Live in Isolation If you think we are immune from the ripple effects of #Brexit, you're mistaken. For starters, interest rates have gone lower, from already-incredibly low rates. The result? Retirement savings cannot generate earnings required to pay for retirement. Worse, if your advisor is telling you that you can invest for growth to pay, then that is also impaired. While we cannot control foreign financial markets, we can control which advice we believe to be...

MYM Podcast 49: OJ Simpson and Medicare

6/21/2016

What Does OJ Simpson Have to do with Medicare??? I spend a lot of time (arguably, an excessive amount) watching ESPN. A much heraleded, 5 episode documentary called O.J. Simpson: Made in America was recently released, so I have been busy. Anyways, I was thinking about how in the world the prosecution lost. And then I thought about the job the defense's legal team did, and of course, the jury's responses. Under Medicare: you are the jury, Marcia Clark and Johnny Cochran are the...

MYM Podcast 46: Beginner’s Corner Interview With Deb St Hilaire

5/21/2016
More
Interviewed on W4DIVAS.com Deb is a friend, and her audience appeals to those that believe in women helping themselves. Women know better than I: women are more frequently the caregiver to extended families. We talked about how to get signed up for Medicare, and important things that need consideration. Too frequently, people simply think that their spouse has them covered. That will depend on MANY things. Even in the case that this is true, that doesn't always mean that it is best. Be...

MYM Podcast 40: Don’t Trust the Billing Department & GEP

1/20/2016

This Happens: billing departments, patient advocates, Division on Aging (MAPP) don't have the correct, updated information. This is particularly worrisome, since many patients rely on this (incorrect) information. Also, the General Enrollment Period ends on March 31st. For those that have not enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B when first turning 65, or after they retire (if after the age of 65), then these are some guidelines.
