Medicare Insurance Assistance
As of July 2012 over 50 million people were on Medicare.
You can absolutely contact Medicare at 1-800-633-4227, or www.medicare.gov, or contact a plan, or call your state’s State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) to ask for assistance in understanding Medicare basics, applying for a plan, understanding plan benefits, help switching plans, or applying for help paying for premiums, co-payments or deductibles.
But… why call Medicare Back Office and not the government agencies or your health insurance plan?
You have a limited amount time to change plans each year.
You may benefit from a plan review as your plan may change each year.
