About This Show
How much would you pay out-of-pocket for a five day hospital stay on Medicare? The majority of people have no idea!
The problem with Medicare is there is too much information. An overwhelming amount of information and not enough resources. Medicare Nation solves that problem by educating you about all the things you want to know about Medicare, but are afraid to ask. This podcast will educate you about the components of Medicare, the different categories of Medicare Plans and Medicare benefits. On other episodes I’ll interview expert guests in the health and wellness field, about diseases, Medicare issues and current changes to the Medicare program.
Medicare Nation is dedicated to answering all your questions about Medicare.
Expert information and insights regarding Medicare and you!

5 days ago
Hey Medicare Nation! Medicare has announced the 2017 "5 Star Plans." What are 5 Star Plans? Medicare rates all health and prescription drug plans each year, based on a plan's quality and performance. Medicare Star ratings will help you understand the job a plan is doing. There are 2 main types of Star Ratings: 1. Overall Star Rating that combines all of the plan's scores. 2. A Summary Star Rating that focuses on a plan's medical or prescription drug services. A few areas Medicare reviews for these Star Ratings include: 1. How plan members rate their plan's services and care. 2. How well a plan's network of doctors detect illnesses and keep members healthy. 3. How well a plan helps it's members use recommended and safe prescription medications. A plan can receive a 1 to 5 Star Rating. 5 Stars is Excellent 4 Stars is above average 3 Stars is average 2. Stars is below average and 1 Star is poor. You can only switch to a 5 Star Rating Medicare Advantage Plan or a 5 Star Stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan, that is available in your area. You can only switch to a 5 Star Medicare Advantage Plan, Medicare Cost Plan or Medicare Prescription Drug Plan once from December 8th to November 30th of the next year. Once you use your election to enroll in a 5 Star Plan, you cannot use it again. If a Medicare Advantage Plan or a Stand-Alone Prescription Drug Plan has received a 5 Star Rating from Medicare, it doesnot mean you automatically go out and enroll in the 5 Star Plan.
