ALBANY — Medicare is a very important healthcare asset for many seniors and others requiring assistance with health insurance in the United States. Those who are eligible for Medicare can receive assistance and affordable healthcare to deal with the variety of health issues that can crop up as we age. Enrolling in Medicare can give you peace of mind for yourself or other aging family members for whom you may be caring.

If you miss your initial enrollment period and the annual open enrollment period for Medicare, you might have to pay more to obtain Medicare coverage. Additionally, you might spend more because of pre-existing conditions that you have. If you enroll during your initial enrollment period or during an annual open enrollment period, you won’t have to worry about your insurance rates increasing because of pre-existing conditions.
