It seems like just yesterday they were wearing bell bottoms and flashing peace signs, but flash forward 40 years and thousands of Orange County Baby Boomers are about to become eligible for Medicare.

Over the next 18 years, baby boomers will be turning 65 at the rate of about 8,500 a day, nationally. And locally, with more than 760,000 baby boomers, Orange County is also predicting a surge in seniors in the coming years.

Inter Valley Health Plan (), a not-for-profit, federally qualified, Medicare Advantage health plan dedicated to providing the best value in senior health care coverage, recently expanded its Medicare services to the North Orange County, now covering Riverside, San Bernardino and portions of Los Angeles and Orange.

With more than 34 years’ experience serving seniors in Southern California, Inter Valley has heard virtually every question Medicare eligibles have had. Here is a list of the more common questions Orange County Baby Boomers (and seniors) have about Medicare plans today.

The Annual enrollment period for Medicare Advantage plans is October 15 – December 7, 2013.

Any changes made during this time will take effect January 1, 2014.
