    Knowing the basics begins with the Dual Option structure of Original vs Advantage.

    The Four Group-to-Medicare Pathways

    The Great Divide. Different Rules for Small Business
    Employers with less than 20 employees face a confusing additional layer of issues.

    Caution! High-Income Surcharges, HSAs, COBRA
    Beware of these potentially significant issues which require extra caution.

    Filled with real-life illustrations that are practical and easy-to-understand, the benefits-related content of this program will be of interest to HR professionals of all experience levels, as well as those who simply want to learn more for themselves about Medicare… a foundational American healthcare benefit.
