Changes In Medicare

In the next few days Medicare recipients should be receiving the new brochure " Medicare and the New Health Law - What it Means for You."  The brochure explains the most important parts of the Affordable Care Act" for those who are receiving Medicare as well as their families. The brochure is also available online at

For those recipients who enter the Part D "donut hole" and who are not eligible for Medicare Extra Help, their first benefit from the new law will be a $250.00 check. And, next year Medicare beneficiaries will find that their colorectal cancer screenings and mammograms are covered by Medicare, in addition to an annual wellness visit.

Remember, that Medicare is only part of a complete longterm care strategy.  Attorney Freya Shoffner and the associates at Shoffner & Associates will be happy to help you decide exactly how you'll make a strategic plan for the best future possible.  Write to us -- or call us at 617-369-0111 -- anytime.
