    This is very helpful advice, thank you so much for sharing! It definitely seems like a hard and stressful process. My dad will probably be looking into getting this in a couple more years.

    I will be signing up in 5 years and I hope it is easy to understand then.

    My mother had a stroke and head on car collision 3 weeks before her Medicare enrollment. After this, I learned that she had yet to make a decision on her options. One tip I can give is to make sure that you check prices and coverage for supplemental and Part D plans for specific zip codes. At that time, we were not sure if she would stay in Virginia or move to North Carolina. We wanted to make sure there would be an easy option to update her location without losing the benefits that would best help her. Also, check the prescription coverage for every single medication. For example, my mother was diagnosed with diabetes and was prescribed two brands of insulin. By taking the time to make sure her insulin was covered, it saved her thousands. Based on her family history, we were also able to check coverage for medications she would likely take. Also, your suggestion to talk to a few experts to learn more is good advice!
