When Medicare was enacted in 1965, nearly one in three seniors lived in poverty. Medicare still plays a critical role in the financial and health security of older Americans today. That’s why it is so crucial, especially in the COVID-19 era, to understand the current benefits under Medicare, as well as any changes coming to the program in 2021.

Did you know that Medicare Advantage plans are expanding telehealth coverage? Or that, in 2021, Medicare will begin paying for acupuncture? Are you aware of what COVID-19’s impact will be on Medicare?
