Hosts: Lou Pierro and Peter Strauss
In this Life Happens show, attorneys Lou Pierro and Peter Strauss give you a close look at two federal programs that make a major difference in the lives of many seniors: Medicare and Medicaid.
Medicare Open Enrollment runs October 15 – December 7 when seniors can make changes to their health and drug coverage for 2022. The choices can be daunting, but Peter will describe the different plans and how you know which is right for you, including Medicare Advantage, prescription plans and supplemental coverage. Are costs and deductibles changing? Find out on our program.
Understanding the difference between Medicare and Medicaid is also important: it’s a surprise to many that only Medicaid covers the exorbitant costs of long-term care. Lou and Peter will update you on new rules taking effect next month announced by the New York State Department of Health, with drastic restrictions to home care benefits. If you or a loved one have a chronic illness or disability, or want to plan ahead, you’ll learn about legal strategies and important deadlines.
