by: John Aker | January 3rd, 2013

With all the news coverage of the changed in legislation surrounding Affordable Care Act(also commonly referred to as ObamaCare), it can be difficult to know what really affects YOU.

The National Council on Aging has put together a few highlights of changes in Medicare in 2013. In addition, they also have posted some helpful links to items such as new preventative care options (such as a smoking cessation program) as well as Medicare’s chart of the monthly payments due in 2013.

There are some positive changes to look forward to including: an easier-to-read benefit summary…discounts to combat the prescription coverage gap…and decreased cost for mental health benefits. Unfortunately, 2013 will also deliver slightly higher premiums. For more details, visit What’s New with Medicare in 2013.
