Publisher's Summary

Medicare finally simplified for the everyday person - explained in layman's terms.

Medicare Broken Down so Simply, You'll Know Exactly What to Expect and How to Ensure You Are Receiving the Best Medical Coverage Possible.

Health-care costs in the United States are growing higher every year - especially for those over 65. Approaching the autumn of your life without being confident your health-care costs will be covered can be very frightening.

Simply put, if you don't understand how Medicare works, you could be missing out on proper coverage that could protect you and your loved ones.

You will hear about Medicare on the news and in the paper all time, but most people don't understand how it really works. It's time you fully understand what Medicare is, how it works, and what it means for you. No other book is going to teach you about it from the ground up - discussing the history of this federal health insurance and how it will affect your life when you turn 65.

Contrary to what some politicians might state, Medicare is not going anywhere in the foreseeable future. Medicare coverage costs represent a significant portion of the federal budget and are only expected to grow in the coming years.

For many American seniors, Medicare coverage will provide the only source of health-care coverage. And for those who do have other insurance coverage (e.g., COBRA), it's important to know exactly how Medicare fits into an overall health-care plan. The fact of the matter is you need to understand how Medicare works!

Medicare Simplified has been specifically designed with ease of learning in mind to ensure you don't get stuck or lost or lose hope when trying to understand Medicare.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Very important information you need to know"
    Where does Medicare: Simplified rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a surprise to me. I was surprise at how much a person needs to know about medicare in their retirement years.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Medicare: Simplified?

    I think it was the shock of how much a person should know before they sign up for medicare. I would not want to try to read this much information about medicare. I was thankful it has been made into an audio book for easy of listening. I would not care to depend of someone else for my needs in retirement. Having the knowledge ahead of time just feels most comforting.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator Lucy made this an easy to listen to and understand medicare. I thought that was great because this is allot of information that you wouldn't want to sort through on your own.

    I received this audio book in exchange for a review.

    "Great information"

    This is a really great eye-opening overview of Medicare. This information is amazing. It will be especially useful for newcomers to the US. And it’s all neatly packaged in this audiobook, which is ONLY one and a half hours long. After reading it, you’ll be clearly informed. Learning the history of Medicare will also prove to be fascinating if it’s new to you as it was to me.

    In a nutshell: Read this!!! You won’t regret it.

    I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Helpful Information About Medicare"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Medicare: Simplified to be better than the print version?

    With a book like this, the print may be better to have. Because it's a guide. And you will want to check back here & there in the future for references.


    What other book might you compare Medicare: Simplified to and why?

    I really do not know. Maybe some papers & information the government sends you.


    What does Lucy Vest bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is a guide not a story. But you get o hear this in his own words,


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really just things to think about in the future.

    "Great Overview of Medicare"
    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I had basic understanding of Medicare before reading this book, however I can now clearly explain the differences of Medicare Parts A,B,C, and D. Also, the book's brief history of Medicare was both relevant and fascinating.


    Any additional comments?

    I strongly believe that anyone who reads this book come away with new information, however those that will benefit the most are the following: individuals about to go on Medicare, individuals with parents about to go on Medicare, and students studying the US healthcare system.
