Medicare was never designed to pay ALL your medical bills. You may be surprised to learn that unless you have Medicare Supplement insurance coverage, you will probably have to pay more out of pocket than you expected for medical expenses.
Now NASW members, age 65 or older, may take advantage of group Medicare Supplement plans that give solid protection against today's high medical bills. Members are guaranteed acceptance if you enroll in the new NASW-sponsored Medicare Supplement Insurance plan within six months after your 65th birthday and the date you first enrolled in Medicare Part A and B at age 65 or older. If you wait until after your open enrollment period to apply, there is no guarantee you will be able to get the coverage you prefer.
