Stay Informed: The Medicare Knowledge That Could Save You from Financial Advisor Oversights

Financial Advisors specialize in accumulating assets. Then during retirement, preserving those assets becomes more important. It's necessary to understand how financial decisions can impact your Medicare costs. By adding a Medicare insurance planner to your financial team you can make more informed, holistic decisions.

The Overlooked Aspect of Retirement Planning

Despite the best efforts of financial advisors to grow your assets, a critical piece of the retirement puzzle often remains overlooked: comprehensive knowledge of Medicare. Even the best estate planners and retirement advisors don't really know that much about Medicare. This gap in understanding can significantly impact your finances during retirement.

The Impact of Financial Decisions on Medicare Costs

Your financial decisions today have a direct impact on your Medicare costs tomorrow. For instance, cashing out stocks or converting IRAs to Roth accounts can increase your Medicare Part B costs due to the Income-Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA). Anytime you cash stocks out, or you cash out any kind of mutual funds or investments, it counts as income, affecting your Medicare Part B costs.

Choosing the Right Medicare Insurance Plan

Making the right choice between Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plans can also have an effect on your retirement lifestyle and expenses. Additionally, considering dental coverage and potential long-term care needs is necessary. As we get older, everybody needs more care and if you don't have that right plan in place, it really will take a huge cut out of your retirement assets.
