Understanding Medicare with National Medicare Education Week

Did you know?

  • One in five Medicare beneficiaries describes Medicare as confusing.
  • Most can't identify what Medicare Parts A, B, C and D cover.

That’s what we learned from the Medicare Made Clear Index, a 2013 survey of 1,000 older adults.

And that’s why UnitedHealthcare created National Medicare Education Week. September 15 – 21 is set aside each year for activities designed to help people learn about Medicare.

One Week, One Goal: To Help Make Medicare Easier to Understand

You get to choose the Medicare coverage you want – when you first enroll and every year after that during Medicare Open Enrollment, Oct. 15 – Dec. 7.

Making an informed choice takes know-how and some time.

Interested? How much time do you have right now?

Spend a little time, and make your next Medicare decision with confidence.
