We’ve just released the May 2019 newsletter from R.F. Meyer & Associates, and it features informative articles on topics we know are important for many of our clients: Medicare, Estate Planning, Medicaid and Social Security.

May 2019The CliffsNotes version:

  • Medicare Beneficiaries Need to Know the Difference Between a Wellness Visit and a Physical: Medicare covers preventative care services, including an annual wellness visit. But confusing a wellness visit with a physical could be very costly.
  • What’s a Health Care Proxy and Why Do I Need One?: If you become incapacitated, who will make your medical decisions? A health care proxy allows you to appoint someone else to act as your agent for medical decisions. It will ensure that your medical treatment instructions are carried out.
  • How to Fight a Nursing Home Discharge: Once a resident is settled in a nursing home, being told to leave can be very traumatic. It is important to know your rights.
  • Maximizing Social Security Survivor’s Benefits: Social Security survivor’s benefits provide a safety net to widows and widowers. But to get the most out of the benefit, you need to know the right time to claim.
