I was interviewed on a local radio show on 103.9 FM - LI News Radio. The show is called Plan Now Win Later and is hosted by an Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorney named Kurt Widmaier. He had me as a special guest to discuss the basics of Medicare, the difference between Medicaid and Medicare, and to explain what options you have to complete your Medicare coverage. A big thanks to Kurt for having me on the show. It was a lot of fun! You can hear the show by clicking below.
