If you need help understanding Medicare, or have questions about Medicare coverage for you, there is a source with no "axe" to grind.  Every state has a SHIP (State Health Insurance Assistance Program) Counselor Office.  The people are trained to answer questions and there is no cost or obligation and they do not sell anything, get commissions for any advice and are completely unbiased.  Do a search for SHIP Counselors and find access to the office nearest you.

Or, you could just call Medicare directly.Smiley Happy

@RealtyGal2Yes you could.  You can also do an on-line Chat with Medicare.  However, Medicare on the phone may be a difficult proposition and making an appointment to see someone from Medicare can be a problem in itself.  The SHIP Counselor option may be the closest option and quicker to achieve.
