Expert to speak on ‘Medicare; The Freedom to Choose’ at July 19 ‘Coffee and Conversation’ event


Founder of “Select Quote” and “Senior Quote” William Haynor will speak at the next “Coffee and Conversation” event in RSF about Medicare and how it works, part A and part B benefits. The event will be held on Thursday, July 19, from 8-9 a.m. at the RSF Golf Club (5827 Via De La Cumbre in Rancho Santa Fe).

Medicare is a national social insurance program, administered by the U.S. federal government in 1965 that guarantees access to health insurance for Americans ages 65 and older and younger people with disabilities as well as people with end stage renal disease. As a social insurance program, Medicare spreads the financial risk associated with illness across society to protect everyone, and thus has a somewhat different social role from private insurers, which must manage their risk portfolio to guarantee their own solvency.

In 2010, Medicare provided health insurance to 48 million Americans — 40 million people age 65 and older and eight million younger people with disabilities. Haynor will educate you on what Medicare is; how to sign up; who should sign up; what it covers and how to choose a carrier.
