Your health needs change from year to year. And, your health plan may change the benefits and costs each year too. That's why it’s important to review your Medicare choices each fall. Compare your current plan to new options and see if you can lower some costs or to find a plan that better suit your needs. Open Enrollment is the one time of year when ALL people with Medicare can see what new benefits Medicare has to offer and make changes to their coverage.
Bible Fact: God allows various things in life to happen to make us better. The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.

Often, parents prepare themselves for the tables to reverse when one day they will be the ones cared for by their adult children, looked after and worldly provisions passed on to their heirs along with their final wishes.
