A health care crisis is looming in this country, and it is essential for baby boomers to understand what they need to do to prepare for it financially.

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) October 05, 2012

Fifty-seven percent of baby boomers said they had a "poor understanding" (31%) or know "almost nothing" (26%) about Medicare, according to a recent survey by Bankers Trust. Three-quarters of boomers (72%) did not know that most Americans on Medicare pay premiums, copays, and deductibles. One in seven thought Medicare was free. Only 14% knew that Medicare does not cover long-term care.

A health care crisis is looming in this country, and it is essential for baby boomers to understand what they need to do to prepare for it financially.

This educational workshop will cover the following:

  •     How Medicare enrollment periods work — and what you need to do to avoid late-enrollment penalties
  •     How much you can expect to pay in health care costs after going onto Medicare
  •     Why you must plan for higher health care costs in retirement — including the possibility of needing long-term care

This workshop is purely educational. No specific insurance or investment products will be discussed.
