The initial decision on Medicare enrollment can be very confusing. While there is a plethora of resources, plowing through multiple websites and articles left me, a personal finance professional, very confused. The Squared Away Blog offers help by providing links to numerous resources for persons signing up for the first time or renewing their enrollment. Note also the comment from the insurance agent. I found it very helpful to meet with a certified insurance agent who helped explain the various options and has been very helpful in resolving some problems (at no charge). Open enrollment is October 15-December 7.Don't wait until the last minute!
