What's the worst thing about turning 65?
For some people, it's having to navigate the wild and weird world of Medicare for the first time. It can be daunting, frustrating, and abundantly confusing. Maybe you’ll have more questions than answers. It’s not something that a lot of people find fun to deal with.
To be fair, while most seniors have no idea what’s “in” Medicare until they start to head toward that magical age, others have been dealing with Medicare for a while. If you’re a caregiver or family member helping an elderly person, or someone who works in the insurance industry, you've seen the Medicare nightmare up close and personal.
The alphabet soup and confusion around Medicare health coverage is, by many accounts, pretty insane. As a government program, this model has endured for many decades, but as a bureaucracy, its language is a frustrating language of inside baseball jargon and overcomplex representation (what is a DMEPOS fee schedule??). That makes it harder for the end customers, America's seniors, to figure out what they're getting when they go on Medicaid at the age of 65.
These are supposed to be your golden years. They're not supposed to be a time when you have to learn a whole new insurance landscape, and basically become your own medicolegal accountant. People just don't have the stamina to dig into these details, which are well beyond what any of us learned in high school or even beyond. In some ways, the landscape of Medicare is actually deliberately obfuscated, or at least it seems that way to a great number of people.
