Medicare Made 123 Easy: Just the facts, No gimmicks, No sales pitches, Just what you need to know by by Ian Schaeffer (Author), David Schaeffer (Contributor)

With a new cover, new forward, new endorsement, and additional material added for 2014 this book was designed to take the sales pitches and brand bias out of selecting the best Medicare plan for your needs. It should read like we were having lunch together and I was telling you about what it’s like to go shopping for Medicare plans. Medicare can be quite complicated to comprehend. After reading this book, I hope that you will agree that Medicare can be 1-2-3 easy!  [B- Back cover].
