I am new to Medicare – what steps do I take to make sure I am ready for Medicare insurance? How do I know what plan to select?
First of all, let us assure you, you have come to the right place! VibrantUSA has been in the business of selling Medicare insurance for over 10 years. Our staff is highly trained in this complex field (see About Us).
If you are turning 65, your special enrollment period is three months prior to your 65th birthday and three months following your 65th birthday. In other words, you have a total of seven months to select a Medicare insurance plan. Before you can enroll, you will need your red, white and blue Medicare identification card showing you have both Parts A and B. (See Medicare & Turning 65.) For even more information, we recommend our easy-to-read Guide to Medicare.
Things to Do
- Request a packet of available insurance plans.
- Prepare a list of your prescription drugs (see Prescription Drug & Physician Questionnaire). This is an important step when making a plan selection as prescription drug coverage will vary from plan to plan. If you choose to send this form to us, we will run a comparison report for you to consider as you review the plans.
- For those new to Medicare, we highly recommend you talk with one of our Medicare Insurance Specialists. We know you will have lots of questions and a one-on-one conversation with an expert in the field will get you off to the right start. There is no charge for our consulting services – our income is derived from the insurance company should you choose to purchase a plan through us.
We always say, one of the best things about turning 65 is Medicare insurance – we look forward to assisting you through the process!
