Medicare is the federal health insurance program for adults over age 65 and other qualified individuals. While the program basics remain virtually unchanged year-to-year, a new year always brings a few tweaks to the program. This session will provide a brief update to the “Back to Basics: Medicare” session provided January 27, 2016 with changes to the program for 2017. The session will also provide a broad overview of the Medicare program’s coordination of benefits with other programs such as Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance, TRICARE for Life and VA Benefits, among others.

We’ll focus on insights gained from the behavioral economics literature, as well as literature more broadly. We’ll also cover some current statistics about saving, and help you find information about saving behavior in your own state or community. Finally, we’ll focus on strategies that are especially applicable to young savers – those new to the workforce. Our panel of experts includes:
