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 offers all enrollees a defined benefit. Hospital care is covered under Part A and outpatient medical services are covered under Part B. To cover the Part A and Part B benefits, Medicare offers a choice between an open-network single payer health care plan (traditional Medicare) and a network plan (Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Part C), where the federal government pays for private health coverage. A majority of Medicare enrollees have traditional Medicare (76 percent) over a Medicare Advantage plan (24 percent). Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs exclusively through private plans, either standalone prescription drug plans or through Medicare Advantage plans that offer prescription drugs.
