Dr. Robert Steadman
family practice, Lourdes Medical Hospital, NJ

Dr. Robert Stedman, author of the book of this same title (i.e., Medicare for Baby Boomers & Beyond, available at Amazon.com) will address the following questions: When should you enroll in Medicare? Who is eligible for Medicare? What is the premium you will pay for hospital insurance? What is Medigap? How many routine well patient visits are you allowed during a Part B lifetime? Can you name the criteria for admission to a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)? How long will Part A allow you to remain in a SNF? Can you name the program that Medicare Advantage is designed to replace? How much will you pay for prescription drugs before Medicare Part D picks up 95% of the expense? How much can you afford to pay for health-care during your retirement years?
