Get What's Yours for Medicare - Revised and Updated

Maximize Your Coverage, Minimize Your Costs

About The Book

An updated and expanded edition of the top-selling consumer guide to Medicare. It explains how to choose the best plans, especially during Medicare’s annual enrollment period, how to use Medicare’s extensive health benefits, and changes to Medicare that are expanding what it will cover and moving care from hospitals into the home.

Medicare is the primary insurance plan for 70 million retired and disabled Americans. Understanding how Medicare works is essential to their health and well-being. However, Medicare has become more complicated—and more confusing. Get What’s Yours for Medicare is the authoritative consumer Medicare guide. It includes detailed chapters on when to enroll in Medicare, how to evaluate the often-bewildering choice of Medicare insurance plans, and, most importantly, how to use Medicare to find high-quality, affordable health care. The book also explains important upcoming changes to Medicare so consumers will know what to expect.

Medicare in 2024 is far different from the program described in the first edition of Get What’s Yours. The first part of this book discusses Medicare policies that affect the medical care you need now. The second part examines how Medicare is changing. These changes are part of the shift toward what is called managed care, which includes private Medicare Advantage plans. The newly updated Get What’s Yours for Medicare explains managed care in detail to clarify any questions about these programs.

Get What’s Yours for Medicare is the definitive guide to help you get the most out of your healthcare and ultimately alleviate the stress surrounding the complicated world of Medicare.
