10 Costly Medicare Mistakes You Can’t Afford to Make



As more and more people leave the US for warmer climates, fewer taxes or to just travel and see the world, the question of Medicare continues to be asked. As a Canadian, I’m not really familiar with Medicare, so I asked the expert, Danielle Roberts to come on and explain everything about this rather confusing insurance program solely for Americans. I know you’ll get a ton of great information and help, listening to this podcast.

If you have family or friends that are thinking of moving overseas and are 60 or more in age, please share this episode with them, they will be grateful you did.
