Perhaps you’ve seen a headline or read an article or two with the basic theme, “Good Riddance, 2016.” Maybe because of an unusually ugly election cycle we’ve all had to endure, or possibly because of the unexpected deaths of some of our favorite artists and entertainers, many are eager to bid farewell to 2016 and welcome in 2017.
As experts in health care and health care coverage in Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin, we can’t help but think of how the new year affects our industry — healthcare.
As we’ve written about previously, a new presidential administration and a shake-up in the legislature might mean changes in healthcare laws. And that’s important to consider as we wonder what might be next for Medicare, Medicaid, and the health care industry in general, but what does it mean for right now?!
First of all, if you are seeking coverage under Medicare or the Affordable Care Act, you may have heard that the deadlines for getting covered in the calendar year 2017 have passed. You may be thinking that it’s too late to get coverage; however, nothing could be further from the truth. Healthcare laws are complex, and there are a whole host of reasons that you may still qualify for coverage if you missed the initial sign-up deadlines. The worst thing you can do for you and your family is to assume that you can’t get coverage. You need to get the facts.
Whether you’ve recently gotten your 2017 coverage but think it’s not quite the right coverage for you, or if you still haven’t secured coverage, the good news is that we have you covered at Milz Health Group. As relentless advocates for healthcare coverage, we will work with you to get you the coverage you want and need, at a price you can afford.
So fear not. If you think you missed your opportunity to be covered in 2017, give us a call. We’d love to use our expertise to help you get the coverage you need.
