Our second guest is Shannon Adams, Medicare Advantage expert; head of the customer experience at Cigna will offer tips before the annual Medicare election period ends on December 7.  Ms. Adams will give seniors the following tips: Go online: Visit Medicare’s Plan Finder (Medicare.gov) or attend a virtual educational session. Pick up the phone: Call individual plans or independent brokers and ask questions to clearly understand all your options. Weigh extras: Pay attention to extra benefits that are not available in Original Medicare but may be built into an MA plan, such as dental, vision, transportation, or telehealth visits. Consider costs: Know the plan’s premium or monthly cost; check for out-of-pocket costs, including copays and deductibles on doctor and hospital visits and prescription drugs. Know your network: Check to see if your favorite facilities and doctors are in-network. Don’t forget prevention: Talk to your doctor about necessary screenings and vaccinations, including the flu shot, which will be especially important this year.  For more information on Medicare’s Plan Finder www.medicare.gov.plan-compare
