Medicare & Medicare Advantage Plans

People are living longer and we must take steps necessary to retain our health and make informed health care decisions. These steps might include understanding your medications, exercise classes or utilizing healthy alternative programs, for instance participating in an asthma program, diabetes education, heart disease education, smoking cessation, or programs for other chronic conditions such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), chronic bronchitis or emphysema. It's important to have regular checkups, eye exams, and to undertake preventive care, such as keeping track of your necessary immunizations for influenza or pneumonia, tests and screenings, such as cholesterol, colorectal and osteoporosis screening, mammogram and pap smear testing, eating right, and exercising. Staying healthy is the goal.
