(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TEXAS – DFW Retirement Radio News) DFW Retirement Radio is airing a series of instructional broadcasts on Medicare and its role in saving consumers on medical costs during retirement. Mark Robinson, Medicare specialist at DFW Retirement Planners, is featured in the radio segments. Robinson compares medical costs in retirement to torpedoes and said, “Not being prepared for medical costs in retirement is one of the torpedoes that can sink the ‘SS Retirement.’ The purpose of our radio segments is to help people understand that they can be prepared for these costs.”
Robinson, who has been helping his clients get the most from Medicare coverage for over 10 years, said that Medicare Advantage coverage can be of great value during retirement. He said, “Consumers often fail to realize that their 20% deductible can be very expensive if they have a major medical procedure. Medicare Advantage has the ability to limit a person’s out of pocket significantly and during retirement that can be very important.”
Prescription costs, according to Robinson, can also be very costly for retirees even with Medicare coverage. He added, “Consumers need to be very careful when signing up for Medicare. Signing up improperly can result in prescription costs being very high. We recently saved one client over $44,000 a year in prescription costs just by being strategic with Medicare and the way they signed up.”
Robinson and DFW Retirement Planners offer a complimentary initial consultation to discuss the options available in Medicare coverage. For more information, call 888-774-4492. DFW Retirement Radio is broadcast Saturdays from 2-3 PM on 820 WBAP Radio, Dallas-Ft. Worth. DFW Retirement Radio is produced by McQ Media, Dallas, Texas.
