Angie's List Experts Podcast: Episode 004 - December 2013

On this installment of the Angie’s List Experts podcast, we talked with Renard Murray, the Regional Administrator for the Atlanta and Dallas Regional Offices of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Medicare plans continue to change and expand as more and more of the baby boomer generation hits the age of 65. Add in recent major legislative changes to our country’s health care system through the Affordable Care Act, and it’s easy to see why some people may have some questions about their current or future Medicare coverage.

In this podcast, Murray explains the Medicare sign-up process, shares tips and resources to ensure that you get the best primary care physician, and helps to clarify how the Affordable Care Act is impacting Medicare coverage.
