Seniors Advised to Review Medicare Options


Friday - November 18, 2011 at 07:52 am


The average 65 year-old couple without employer health coverage will spend approximately $200K in health care costs during the balance of their lives.  And medical costs continue to rise 6% annually on average. Our next guest says that's why it's very important, after you turn 65, to make sure you spend the time to analyze your options during what is known as the open enrollment period.

Mike Switzer interviews Laura Scharr-Bykowsky, a certified financial planner and Principal with Ascend Financial Planning in Columbia.  www.ascendfinancialplanning.com and www.medicare.gov
