Be Prepared for Open Enrollment

So....I retired 3 years ago. I stayed on my work's insurance plan for a couple of years. Then Medicare kicked in and I needed a Medicare Supplement Plan and Prescription Plan to ensure I'd be covered with my specialists and not totally wiped out by the cost of my oral chemo.

It's darn confusing.

Two great organizations that I turned to for help in understanding were: Triage Cancer and Cancer Legal Resource Center. Both have upcoming webinars on insurance and Medicare.  Here are links to those important sessions:

Triage Cancer: How to chose and use your health insurance

CLRC: Health Insurance updates and open enrollment for 2021

Also know that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Healthwell Foundation have copay assistance & prescription assistance programs.
