When It Pays To Shop Your Medicare Coverage

This is a nice short video (click here to see video) that I stumbled across that I found to be very informative for those 65 and above with Medicare.  Check your Medicare formulary against your current needs.  You may have the opportunity to shop and find a better fit for your needs, and your doctors intentions, regarding your care.  As with many types of insurance, I find that my clients simply pay the premium and never really check the coverage.  When it comes to your personal health this could be a nice opportunity that will save you some money and certainly buy you some...

Program Losses Spur Government Changes

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced Tuesday, August. 29, it will raise up-front fees and tighten limits for the HECM Reverse Mortgage program to avoid having to dip into the U.S. Treasury to cover troubled borrowers. These means radical changes to the HECM Reverse Mortgage program in the very short term.  I do not believe the loss estimates that are being made public.  This would imply that the program is being run inefficiently.  Huge losses would also not be revealed overnight.  There would have been indications.  For this reason, I belie...
