In this week’s podcast, Dennis Bielik hosts Billy Baschnagel, a health care specialist with 40 years of experience at West Avenue Insurance. In response to several myths and misconceptions about Medicare and the Affordable Care Act, Dennis and Billy discuss a few of the most commonly asked questions:

  • What options do you have for health care if you’re looking to retire before 65?
  • When can you sign up for Medicare, and how will your income affect the cost?
  • What do you need to know before choosing one of the eleven Medicare policies?
  • What is a Medicare supplement, and when does it make sense to get one?
  • How do social security and medicare impact each other?

If these are questions you’ve been asking yourself, then this quick thirty minute conversation may be worth a listen.
