Default Medicare Maze

For anyone who is just starting this route or looking to add supplemental insurance or making changes at the end of the year, (the 6-week open enrollment starts tomorrow) this might be helpful.

The Wall Street Journal (Saturday/Sunday, 11/14-15 issue) has an interesting article in the health section. Titled "Medical Maze" by Kelly Greene. Not sure how to make direct link, but this is what is listed at the end of the article:

WSJ.com
Journal video: hear more tips from Joe Baker, head of the Medicare Rights Center, in an interview with Kelley Greene, at WSJ.com/Reports.

I haven't had time to view this, so don't know if this includes the info in the article or not.
But, I assume you could go to WSJ.com and pull up the article with the above listed info.
