Medicare is Trying to Save Your Life; Needs You to Help by Using Preventive Services

Download this free, handy sheet for keeping track of your free Medicare preventive services

Jan. 22, 2012 - Senior citizens have a better chance at a longer, healthier life this year, thanks to the many new preventive services now offered by Medicare. Many have been added by the health care reform law, called “Obamacare” by its critics, but officially named the Affordable Care Act. SeniorJournal.com is offering a free checklist to help you keep up with all the preventive services you are due.

The strategy is to help older Americans stay healthy and to avoid the extremely high cost of treating disease and other health problems after they reach the catastrophic stage.

SeniorJournal.com is now helping you take advantage of these life-saving opportunities by providing a handy checklist to keep up with the services for which you are eligible.

The SeniorJournal.com checklist is a one page sheet available for download or printing. It is almost actually like a page in the Medicare and You 2012 handbook. SeniorJournal.com, the online senior news site, is providing it in a format that is easy to use, share with others and to carry with you to meetings with doctors and other healthcare providers.

Senior Journal is also providing information and key links that will guide seniors to more detailed information of the websites provided by Medicare and others.

For example, a key website is MyMedicare.gov. This site is published for beneficiaries and users must register to use the interactive features of the site. The key reason for registration is that it provides free personalized information about your account and services provided through Medicare.

When you open your account on MyMedicare.gov you get this page with your preventive services listed on right.

MyMedicare.gov is an optional, secure site designed to help you check the status of your eligibility, enrollment, and other Medicare benefits. It also allows you to access your claims information almost immediately after it is processed by Medicare and provides you with preventive health information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Checking up on your preventive services is one of the major benefits of establishing your account at MyMedicare.gov.

Once you have established your account, it will provide you information on the services you have received from Medicare. You can use this information to help keep track of the preventive services for which you are available by checking them off on the checklist provided by SeniorJournal.com.

To get started setting up your account at this helpful Medicare site, click this link - Getting Started.

Click this link to the Preventive Services page on the Medicare website – Preventive Services Overview.

Medicare also makes available for download a 28-page booklet - Your Guide to Medicare`s Preventive Services –giving an overview of Medicare’s covered preventive services.

So, get started today helping Medicare keep you healthy. Just download the SeniorJournal.com checklist and start filling in the information.

Financial Relief for Volkswagen Diesel Owners

You may be eligible for money damages if you owned or leased one of these VW, Porsche or Audi vehicles.

In the major scandal of 2015, Volkswagen cheated you and the world. They rigged diesel emission controls so you, nor regulators, would know how much pollution their cars were adding to our environment.

They were caught and have reserved $7.3 billion to help "make it right" with victims.

If you owned or leased one of these vehicles, contact us now.

 Beth Janicek, Board Certified Personal Injury Attorney Janicek Law attorneys are actively pursuing these cases against VW. Do Not Wait...
