Medicare Retiree Survey Indicates A Serious Cause For Concern

When thinking about Medicare, two numbers really stand out. The first number is 10,000 — that is how many people per day are turning 65 and becoming eligible for Medicare. That is a big number and is predicted to rise in the next decade. The other number is 79 — that is the percent of future retirees who incorrectly think Medicare is free, according to a recent Nationwide survey. After talking to thousands of Medicare-eligible individuals in my 10 years of healthcare insurance experience, I have concluded this misconception is not entirely the person’s fault.
