RLTV, a cable network designed to serve the boomer generation, recently aired “Making Medicare Work for You: Boomers, Welcome to Medicare,” part of a series designed to help boomers make sense of Medicare system.

The episode explains the rules, deadlines and decisions related to entering Medicare. It is sponsored by UnitedHealthcare and hosted by journalist Deborah Norville.

The show features industry experts who spotlight real people as they make decisions relevant to entering the program and offers insights and strategies valuable to boomers and other first-time enrollees to Medicare, such as those with disabilities.

“Baby boomers are a diverse group with diverse health needs. RLTV’s program illustrates that the process of enrolling in Medicare for the first time is different for each individual,” said Tom Paul of UnitedHealthcare’s Medicare and retirement division. “Through our Medicare Made Clear campaign and support of RLTV’s program, we hope to provide boomers and other Medicare beneficiaries with the information and resources they need to feel confident in their health-care choices.”
