Vivian’s Story

Vivian turned 65 several years ago and was covered by her husband’s insurance until he passed away. She trusted him to manage their finances and healthcare decisions. Now facing these issues on her own, she is short on time. Her enrollment period has passed, and she needs to sign up as soon as possible, preferably with the help of a trusted resource. While relatively healthy, Vivian does take several prescriptions to maintain her health and wants to make sure she understands her coverage options so she can make a decision quickly.
