Albert McWilliams, Let's Talk About Medicare presenter

The program presenter is Albert McWilliams, Sr., a local licensed insurance advisor with The Mack Group. McWilliams has been a licensed Medicare advisor since 2001 and a licensed ACA (Affordable Care Act) advisor since 2013. As a health insurance program administered by the federal government, Medicare is laden with many policies, procedures, and guidelines that can be very confusing for the average American consumer.

Among Medicare questions to be discussed:

* Who is eligible for Medicare?
* What kind of coverage does it provide? 
* Is there more than one plan available?
* How much does it cost? 
* When should I enroll? 

These are just some of the important questions that everyone needs answered in order to help them make good, informed decisions about their healthcare coverage. 

Not getting accurate and up-to-date answers to these questions can mean missing out on valuable benefits that you and your loved ones are entitled to claim. McWilliams and BPL are glad to partner in order to help our patrons. 

Set your calendar now for noon on Thursday, September 2, to tune in for the first 2021 in-person edition of this valuable monthly program.
