History of Medicare Associate news editor

Medicare was signed into law in 1965 by President Lyndon Johnson. The bill signing took place in Independence, Mo., at the Truman Library, in recognition of the role President Truman had played in creating a health insurance system. Mr. Truman was given the first Medicare card and his wife, Bess, the second. Today, Medicare provides health coverage to those 65 and older as well as to those under 65 who are permanently disabled. It was left to another president from Texas, George W. Bush, to sign the Medicare Modernization Act in 2003. That set into motion the prescription drug benefit known as Part D. It is hard to remember how controversial the passage of Medicare was in its day. During much of the

20th century, presidents had tried to get some form of health coverage enacted. Opponents ranged from politicians to insurance companies to the American Medical Association. Today, Medicare is considered a success story by most and few seniors would give it up. Even those who do not favor government-run health care say “Don’t touch my Medicare!” Medicare and Part D are complicated and often difficult to understand. The Open Enrollment period for changing plans has been moved up from November to October and decisions need to be made sooner. We are running these articles now to help you understand the choices. We also want you to be aware of resources that are available to help you make those decisions. We hope you find the information useful as you plan for 2012. Please let us know.

Social Security and Medicare in enewsletters send to hundreds of thousands of AARP members, as well as on Facebook. The outcome of this debate could have a big impact on older people. On average, Americans 65+ spend about 30 percent of their income on health costs. The median income of Americans age 65 or older is only $18,500 a year, and half of all Floridians age 65+ rely on Social Security for half their income. Shifting costs to seniors, or cutting Social Security benefits, could have devastating impacts on older Floridians. I want to thank the tens of thousands of Floridians who already have raised their voices on this important issue. At AARP Florida, we’re working to help you protect your retirement security. To stay in touch with the latest developments on this issue, please go to http://action.aarp.org and sign up for our Action Alerts. To learn more, pleaser visit www.aarp.org/fl .

y strong margins, new polls show that Americans of all political persuasions are upset at Congress in the wake of the early-August debtceiling agreement and subsequent market turmoil. But even though the first round of budget-cutting action left Social Security and Medicare intact, older Floridians are starting to realize that they’re still in a fight to protect the benefits they’ve earned over a lifetime of hard work. In fact, upcoming efforts to trim the federal deficit will focus debate even more strongly on the future of Medicare, Social Security and other key programs. Later this year, Congress will have to make a new round of even more difficult budget-cutting decisions. Under the debt-ceiling deal, a 12member Congressional committee is to craft a plan to trim from $1.2 trillion to $1.5 trillion more from the nation’s

and Medicare. We are calling for a broader national conversation about protecting American values and everyone’s retirement security. To help get this conversation started, AARP Florida is reaching out to Floridians in several ways. A series of “community conversations” will be held later this year to explain the deficit-reduction issue and its possible impacts on older Americans. Also, tens of thousands of AARP members statewide will be able to listen to a “Tele-Forum” to explain the issue via a toll-free telephone call later this year. Also, AARP Florida volunteer speakers are available to speak to your civic or fraternal organization, club, condo or homeowners’ association or other group this fall on this important issue. To schedule a speaker to come to your club or organization and speak about this or other topics, please call AARP Florida at 1-866-595-7678 and ask for the Speaker’s Bureau line, or e-mail flaarp@aarp.org .

long-term deficit by Nov. 23 of this year. This “super-committee” could recommend reductions to any kind of federal spending, including Social Security or Medicare. AARP Florida is concerned that this fast-track process would deny older Americans a chance to make themselves heard in the debate over budget reductions. Under the legislation, Congress cannot amend the committee’s plan, but can only accept or reject it. Congress must act by Dec. 23. If the “supercommittee’s” plan is rejected, then the legislation requires a broad range of across-the-board budget cuts, including a 2-percent reduction to Medicare reimbursements to your doctor, hospital and other health-care providers. This potential cut would be in addition to a possible 30-percent cut in Medicare doctor reimbursements that will occur at the end of this year if Congress does not fix a flawed Medicare-reimbursement formula.

Common discounts available to seniors metrocreativeconnection.com For Hometown News

Today's seniors might cringe at the escalating costs of necessities such as prescription medication and even higher utility bills, and understandably so. However, savvy seniors can save by taking advantage of a host of discounts exclusive to the those over the age of 65. • Travel perks. Many seniors love to travel, and can even do so at heavily discounted prices. Larger hotel chains often offer seniors discounts as high as 10 percent. Unfortunately, many U.S. domestic airlines, facing higher fuel prices and dwindling business due the global economic downturn, ceased offering senior discounts in 2009. However, certain airlines, including Southwest Airlines, still offer discounted rates to seniors. These discounts can be as much as 10 percent. It's also common for car rental agencies to offer senior discounts. • Transportation. Many communities provide heavily discounted, if not free,

rates to seniors for public transportation. Consult with your local government to determine if you qualify for senior discounts. • Food. Grocery stores commonly offer discounts to older customers, and many times you don't even need to be a senior citizen to qualify. In general, chains offer senior discounts, including special days for seniors to shop, to anyone over the age of 55. Restaurants are also known to offer senior discounts, and often these discounts extend beyond "early bird special" discounts of yesteryear. While early bird specials still exist, many chain restaurants offer discounted prices to seniors regardless of time of day. In many cases, these discounts aren't listed on the menu, but it never hurts, and typically saves, to ask. • Arts and culture. Seniors looking to spend a day or night on the town and take in some culture can typically do so at a discounted rate. Museums and National Parks typically offer discounted admission to seniors, as do movie theaters and even some concert halls.

Restaurants are also known to offer senior discounts, and often these discounts extend beyond "early bird special" discounts of yesteryear.

Medicare offers prescription drug benefits. This guide will help you begin to understand what’s available to you. By Shelley Koppel Associate News Editor

MELBOURNE - The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 is commonly known as Medicare Part D. It is the prescription drug component of Medicare and it is available to Medicare recipients who have Part A or Part B. While under the Medicare umbrella, Part D is more like traditional insurance. Medicare recipients must choose a plan, run by an insurance company. To do so, it’s necessary to find out which plans are available in your area and then compare the cost for the drugs you take. If you belong to Medicare Advantage, it may have a prescription benefit with it. If this sounds complicated, it is. If you do not take any prescription drugs, you might be tempted to skip Part D. However, unless you have good drug coverage from a present or former employer, you will pay a penalty for not enrolling when

you are first eligible. That penalty will continue for life.

Choosing a Plan Those with access to a computer can find help at the Medicare website www.medicare.gov. It is a little daunting, but by indicating where you live and what medications you take, a list of plans available to you, with the premiums, will appear. You can compare them online. For further information, See PART D, 8

Part D From page 7

you can contact each insurer independently to make sure that the medications you take are covered and that you understand what the premium and co-pay will be. The SHINE program is also useful for figuring out Part D. Standing for Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders, SHINE is a state-wide volunteer-based program offering free Medicare and health insurance education, counseling and assistance. SHINE is administered in Florida by the Department of Elder Affairs. SHINE volunteers can offer free, unbiased information on Medicare; Medicaid, the state-run program for those with low income; Medicare supplemental insurance or Medigap; long-term care insurance; prescription drug insurance or Part D; and Medicare fraud. Some counties offer counseling by phone and others have counseling sites. To locate SHINE assistance in Florida, call the Florida Elder Helpline 1(800) 963-5337. Lynne Meagher is area coordinator for the SHINE program in Brevard County. She said that her organization of volunteers can help with Part D over the phone. “We can ask them what prescriptions they’re taking and do the research about which plans fit,” she said. “We can also help folks apply for extra help paying for their Part D plan is they qualify.”

When the Medicare Part D benefit went into effect, in 2006, beneficiaries had to pay 100 percent of prescription drug costs after they reached a coverage limit and until their drug expenses qualified them for catastrophic coverage. This was

known as the infamous ‘doughnut hole.’ The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act has made the ‘doughnut hole’ less of a burden. Jeff Johnson interim state director of AARP Florida said that people who fall into the category will receive some relief. “This year people who fall into the coverage gap will receive a 50 percent discount on their namebrand prescription drugs and a seven percent discount on generic drugs. The ‘doughnut hole’ starts at $2, 840 in covered prescription drugs costs and ends when the catastrophic coverage kicks in at $4, 550. “In succeeding years, the discount will rise and by 2020, the ‘doughnut hole’ will disappear entirely. Those in Medicare Part D will receive 75 percent of the cost of their covered prescriptions with 25 percent co-pay.” Another change to the program this year is that the period to switch plans is longer. “In the fall of 2011, the Annual Enrollment Period dates will change to give you more time if you want to choose and join a Medicare health or prescription drug plan,” said Mark Tellier, administrator of Daytona-area senior services for the Council on Aging of Volusia County. “You will be able to switch from Oct. 15-Dec. 7. If you make a change during this period, your new coverage will begin Jan. 1, 2012.” It is important to note that legislators working on the budget may make changes to Medicare. You can keep up-to-date by checking www.medicare.gov. Organizations such as AARP are following the legislative action. You can keep informed at the AARP website www.aarp.org. “We don’t know all of the changes for next year,” Ms. Meagher said.

Not for sissies This Boomer’s boot camp focuses on fitness By Shelley Koppel Associate News Editor

MELBOURNE – For her Space Coast Adventure Boot Camp, Diane Schullstrom is looking for a few good women-and some men, too. The fitness instructor, 51, has been running the camp for five years, challenging adults of all ages to achieve fitness goals they thought impossible. Ms. Schullstrom holds classes outdoors in a park near the DeSoto Recreation Complex in Satellite Beach. Classes are Monday-Friday at 8:30 a.m. and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Students are encouraged to come three days a week, although some students come for four or five weekly sessions. “I do different workouts every day,” Ms. Schullstrom said. “It could be sports and agility drills, weight, and a lot of interval training. I use small equipment including medicine balls, kettlebells, sandbags, hand weights, resistance bands and agility

ladders. There are rings for pull-ups.” Ms. Schullstrom, who left a career as a financial consultant, has been involved in fitness for many years. She is certified in a variety of fitness categories, including strength and conditioning from Florida Atlantic University; exercise testing from the American College of Sports Medicine; and adventure boot camp and biomechanics training from the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association. She said that integrating a variety of exercises keeps people from getting bored. "There’s a change of pace,” she said. “People get bored or they’re not compliant on their own. They like the camaraderie of the class. I’m very hands-on, like a personal trainer. Everyone works at their own level and their own pace.” People are welcome to start the training at any time.

mass measurements, glaucoma testing and colorectal cancer screening. Some of the screenings may have limitations and include only those with a family history of a condition. Many Medicare recipients decide that while Medicare pays for a lot of care, there is still a substantial amount that is not covered. For example, under Part B, after the deductible for the year is met, you pay 20 percent of the amount Medicare approves for the service. That includes each doctor’s visit and test. Many Medicare recipients decide to purchase a supplemental plan, often referred to as Medigap. These are sold by private insurers and are often advertised on television. In the past, Medicare recipients have only been able to join a new plan or change plans during an enrollment period in November and December. Beginning this year, they can change plans from Oct. 15-Dec. 7.

a provider organization. The costs may be lower and there may be additional benefits, but you are usually required to use plan doctors and hospitals. The plan may have drug coverage. Part D is the prescription drug coverage. It is provided by private insurance companies and you pay a premium as you would for any other insurance. Ms. Meagher of SHINE noted that there were several changes for 2011. “Starting in Jan. 2011, if you have original Medicare, most preventive services are covered 100 percent,” she said. “If you have an Advantage plan, some cover the services 100 percent and some don’t. You can get a wellness exam each year.” In addition to the exam, many preventive screening tests are now covered, including flu shots, screening mammograms, prostate exams, carSee PRIMER, 11 diovascular disease screening, bone

“This change is a real positive,” Ms. Meagher said. “It allows more time before the holidays to talk to counselors and plan. It also coincides with employer enrollment periods. Previously, folks had to make a decision on what they had from a former employer before seeing what was out there with Medicare.”

Getting help Navigating the Medicare shoals can be tricky and it is a good idea to plan. “When you’re about to celebrate your 65th birthday, it’s very important that you take the time to think through your Medicare coverage,” said Dave Bruns, AARP Florida’s communication manager. “Sign up promptly and make sure you do your research on the options available to you. It can take a while to

FOREVER YOUNG - SEPTEMBER 2011 sort through this complicated issue and make the right choices, but you should take as much time as you need.” There are many resources available to help make informed choices. The first, if you already receive Medicare, is the handbook, Medicare & You, sent to each recipient in September. It is particularly helpful in letting recipients know about any changes in coverage and cost and the basics of what Medicare does cover. Medicare maintains a website, www.medicare.gov, which has the most up-to-date information. Those without computers can call 1 (800) 633-4227. The SHINE program is another resource that is a great help in figuring out Medicare and its related parts. Standing for Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders, SHINE is a state-wide volunteer-based program offering free Medicare and health insurance education, counseling and assistance. SHINE is administered in Florida by the Department of Elder Affairs. SHINE volunteers can offer free, unbiased information on Medicare;

Medicaid, the state-run program for those with low income; Medicare supplemental insurance or Medigap; longterm care insurance, prescription drug insurance or Part D; and Medicare fraud. They can also help beneficiaries apply for extra help with premiums if they meet income requirements. To locate SHINE assistance in Florida, call the Elder Helpline at 1(800) 9635337. There are 11 offices in the County and a SHINE counselor will call to make an appointment. While there are offices from Micco to Titusville, counselors can also provide help on the phone. AARP offers information about Medicare, as well. Visit the website at www.aarp.org. You can find good information on basic Medicare. Wading your way through Medicare is a challenging task but it’s important to get the best information to make informed decisions. Dave Bruns of AARP summed up why. “After all, you’ve worked a lifetime for this benefit. Make sure you get the most out of it.”

Join your local genealogical society After all, your ancestors didn’t live in the area, and your research is concentrated in a different part of the country or even a different country entirely. This is one of the biggest mistakes I see genealogists make, and I hope to show you the advantages of getting out and joining with others to make your hobby more rewarding and exciting. The No. 1 reason is networking. You will find a group of people, meeting monthly, eager to welcome you into the fold and teach you all they know. The most important tool in genealogy is making new friends and contacts, with people who have the same passion. Members of the society will come from all walks of life and all parts of the country. These members will be searching hundreds of different surnames, and yours may well be included. As with anywhere you go, you never know who you are going to be sitting

next to. There’s a good chance that someone in the room will be researching your surname, state, or county, and if not this meeting, there is always next month, with new people coming to each meeting. Researching alone is like working in a vacuum. As you gradually make contacts, you will find hundreds of genealogists in your community and all over the world. You will make lifelong friends, and may even find distant, if not close, relatives. You will find members eager to help you and offer suggestions on solving problems in your research. If you don’t find your distant relative, someone else may find him for you. Genealogists just seem to naturally keep an eye out for the relatives of their friends.

Each meeting will feature some type of program, from general research, software, specific geographic areas, organization of materials, writing a family history, and hundreds of other topics. The programs are presented by anyone from members of the society, to guests from other societies, to professional genealogists. One of the primary goals of local societies is to index, abstract, or transcribe local records and publish the results in their journals and/or online. Those interested in participating in one of these projects will be taught the skills required and receive the satisfaction of being instrumental in sharing this information with the public. The society will also, on occasion, hold an all-day seminar on any number of topics featuring professional speakers as well as beginner workshops. Often, classes are held on teaching new research techniques, software, or researching specific areas. Field trips can be arranged between

members to visit neighboring libraries, other meetings, or places of interests. With the imagination of its members, the sky is the limit, for a successful society. Your whole genealogy is NOT on the Internet. It takes work, digging into records, asking questions, meeting people, learning the tricks of the trade and having fun. So get out of your chair, socialize and let others help you. There are hundreds of genealogy societies in the United States. To find one near you, visit the website: www.familyhistory.com/societyhall/m ain.asp Not only are some of my best friends people I met more than 25 years ago in our local society, most of my other friends have been converted into genealogists! It works both ways. Genealogy is contagious, and once contracted, it can never be cured. Brenda Knight Smith brendaksmith@prodigy.net Treasure Coast Genealogical Society

What Today's Workers Can Expect From Social Security Tomorrow Courtesy of: Donna G. Higbee, CFP®, Financial Advisor, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Ormond Beach, FL

According to the S SA, your benefits will be there for you when you retire. However, the SSA also acknowledges that some changes to the present system may be required. For example, when Social Security was created, the average life span was less than 65 years. But today, many people are living longer, healthier lives. And because the nation's 76 million Baby Boomers are approaching retirement, there will be nearly twice as many older Americans in 30 years as there are today. What's in Store? Currently, Social Security takes in more in taxes each year than it pays out in benefits. But in 2016, according to estimates by the SSA, the amount of benefits paid out will begin to exceed the amount collected in taxes. Based on SSA projections, by 2037, the Social Security trust fund will be exhausted and payroll taxes collected will be enough to pay only about 73% of benefits owed. Recognition of these issues is growing, and legislators are now looking at funding and investment options to resolve them. While your Social Security benefits are an important piece of the retirement income equation, you probably shouldn't plan to rely on Social Security alone for your future income. Your employer-sponsored retirement savings plan, company pension and personal savings may need to provide the major portion of your income in retirement. If you’d like to learn more, please contact Donna G. Higbee, 386-615-3402, or visit our web site fa.morganstanleyindividual.com/thecornerstonegroup

Benefit Basics The exact amount of your Social Security benefit will depend upon your earnings history.

Calendar From page 15

Did you know that the age at which many workers will qualify for full Social Security benefits has risen to 67 from 65? If that's news to you, you're not alone: The majority of workers are still in the dark about Social Security eligibility requirements and many expect to qualify for benefits payments sooner than they actually will. Combined with lingering questions about the long-term financial health of the overall Social Security program, these facts reinforce the importance of understanding exactly what you might expect from Social Security during your retirement.

‘Melt’ the veggies for a traditional spaghetti sauce ROMANCING THE STOVE with the Grammy Guru ARLENE BORG

Gone are the days when I used lard or bacon drippings. After learning my cholesterol was too high I changed many of my recipes to eliminate, if possible, high-fat and high-cholesterol ingredients. Today, my sauce is virtually fat-free. But amazingly, it’s still delicious. Adding grated Romano cheese to the sauce as it cooks adds a little fat but so much flavor. See you next week!

Peel onions and garlic; trim and scrub carrots. Carrots contain a natural sugar, which usually eliminates the need for added sugar. Chop vegetables very fine (a food processor is great for this). Sauté in a large pot in the oil or water if you want a completely fat-free sauce. As Mama used to say, “You must cook the vegetables until they almost melt.” Since you are using a very small amount of oil you must keep adding water, about a cup at a time, as it cooks down. This is the longest preparation process for the sauce and can take about 30 minutes. When I decide to make sauce I double or triple the recipe and freeze it in suitable size containers for future meals. Add tomato paste and cook a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add remaining ingredients and liquid until thinned to desired consistency. Stir well; bring to a boil. Lower heat to just

ello smart shoppers. Every couple of years I find it necessary to repeat my family’s superb spaghetti sauce recipe, so here it is. Why no company can make a great sauce is beyond me but I’ve yet to find anything comparable. The recipe is from my mother and my father’s mother; together it’s the best. I was told to use an Italian brand of tomatoes since they’re made with plum tomatoes, which are sweeter. A basic tomato sauce, one to which you will add meat if you choose, does not contain oregano. Oregano is used in a marinara sauce that does not contain meat. Marinara sauce is served plain or with seafood. Disagree? That’s fine, that’s what it’s all about, but try my sauce and you be the judge. The secret to great tomato sauce is one: in the ingredients; and two: in the method of cooking. One thing you really need is a large heavy pot, so if you don’t have one now is the time.

How to manage medications safely metrocreativeconnection.com For Hometown News

Statistics indicate that the average senior takes four to five prescription medications daily and potentially two over-the-counter products as well. Individuals could be consuming 10 to 15 pills in one day. Research also indicates that a senior will use roughly 25 different prescription medications during the course of a year. Managing this many medications can be tricky. Seniors rely on myriad medications for various health conditions. Oftentimes, these meds are prescribed by different specialists with little to no coordination between them. Doctors often rely on patient information regarding prescription usage to complete medical history forms and determine whether another medication is safe to take. It is easy for the elderly to forget about a medication

he or she is taking or mix it up with another when the person is managing so many pills. Drug interactions can be dangerous and potentially fatal. Therefore it is essential to manage meds as carefully as possible. 1. The first step to take is to make a list of all medications that you are currently taking. If you use one pharmacy (highly adviseable for recordkeeping and notification of drug interactions), you can ask the pharmacy to print a list of the pills you take. It will have the actual names and show your prescription history. Make copies of this list. Store one at home in a file cabinet, and keep others in your wallet or purse to bring with you to doctors' appointments. When asked about prescriptions, you'll have your list ready and waiting. 2. Make sure you fully understand dosage and duration of medications when your doctor prescribes some-

thing. Doctors stereotypically have poor handwriting on prescriptions. Therefore, do not hesitate to ask that the instructions be repeated. Verify the instructions with the pharmacist when picking up the medication. 3. Store all medication in the original containers so that you have the proper dosage and expiration dates. This will make renewals and dosage checks easier. 4. If you take multiple pills each day, it can be handy to use a pill organizer separated into days of the week and times of the day. At the beginning of each week, use your pill bottles to measure out what pills you need to take at each time. If you feel confused about this process, ask a family member, friend or even the pharmacy to help. 5. Read the safety information provided with prescription medications. It will tell you what you can and can't do while taking a medication, as well as potential side effects. If you have any concerns about the information, speak with the pharmacist or call your doctor. You're always better safe than sorry. 6. Store prescriptions where they are accessible by you but not by other members of the family. If you are sharing a home with a spouse or

someone else who takes multiple medications, keep your pills separate from the others. You may want to color-code bottles or organizers so you can easily see what pills are yours or your spouse's. 7. Avoid taking medication in the dark or while tired. You may take the wrong pill and risk overdose. 8. Keep medications away from young children, especially visiting grandchildren. 9. Routinely check expiration dates on bottles. Discard expired medication promptly. 10. If your doctor tells you to stop taking a medication, dispose of it promptly. 11. Always take the prescription as prescribed by a doctor. Don't play with dosage or skip pills because you feel like it. Also, don't abruptly stop taking a medication. Some prescriptions require you to gradually wean off. 12. If a medication's side effects are making you ill or you do not feel right or improved while taking a medication, consult with your doctor. You know your body best. 13. Alcohol interacts with many different prescriptions. Be careful of mixing alcohol and drugs.
