David’s Story

David will be turning 65 in a few months and he is preparing to make his Medicare decision with confidence. He has maintained a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and regular checkups, so nothing gets in the way of traveling the world with his wife. Although he will continue working past his 65th birthday, David likes to plan ahead and is doing his research so he will be prepared for retirement and the loss of his employer-provided health coverage.

David’s Next Steps
