Mr. Colson helps you think thru complex questions that need answers; things I never would have thought to consider before reading his book.
His chapter on Part D Rx Plans is worth 100 times the cost of the book. He goes into great detail on how to get the best Rx plan, based on your particular meds.
I have noticed that other Medicare books are written by doctors or financial advisors. OK, that's fine. I suppose they have some valid points to make. However, If you want medical advice, go to a doctor. If you want financial planning, go see a financial advisor. But if you want Medicare insurance information, go to an experienced insurance agent specializing in the field. Go to Mike Colson. The author's 29 years of experience in this field is so evident, and it's what gives this book a crucial advantage over all the other books out there. I highly recommend "Medicare Made Crystal Clear." You won't be sorry.
The book includes an email address, so readers can contact him with personal questions or concerns. He helped me, and didn't even charge me, which was a welcome surprise. The book says he also offers one-on-one coaching sessions, or help in shopping for a part D Rx Plan at minimal cost.
He points out things you should be sure to do, things not to do and his opinions of what's better or worse. I especially appreciated this last because so many books just give you the facts and expect you to sort it all out for yourself. If it's all Greek to you, you might overlook some serious pitfalls and this book is going to prevent that. Eventually, you might end up with different opinions, but this book is going to arm you with what you need to be able to evaluate anything that gets thrown at you as well as what to watch out for. When it comes to insurance, an educated consumer may not be the best customer - so look to your own interests and read this book!
What this book is not, is a heavy, detailed slog into the nitty-gritty. You're going to need to go further than just this one book to make sure you do what's best for your individual situation, which can really get tripped up by the intricate rules and deadlines within Medicare. In particular, don't even think about not bothering with this if you have an uncommon situation. Even so, this book will give you the big picture so you can drill down into the details yourself elsewhere and not get lost among the weeds.
I highly recommend this book as a starting point for understanding Medicare. I can't believe how fortunate I was to discover it. Thank you Amazon readers and Mike Colson!
