Retiree’s Guide to Medicare: The book your insurance company doesn’t want you to read

Warwick, RI (October 14, 2016) – In response to the inherent confusion surrounding Medicare, local physician John Luo, M.D. has written a book entitled Retiree’s Guide to Medicare. Dr. Luo is the founder of Doctor’s Choice, whose mission is to simplify Medicare Health Plan options for retirees.

According to Dr. Luo, the purpose of his book is to educate retirees on the main facts they should know in order to make an educated decision on their options. Topics include: how to choose the right plan; what to consider for a supplemental plan; as well as when and how to sign up.

“When you cut through all the clutter and confusion, Medicare comes down to one simple decision,” said Dr. Luo. “Retiree’s Guide to Medicare was written to highlight what’s important so that the reader can walk away knowing exactly how to navigate themselves through the maze. It’s an easy read and it truly simplifies the process.”

The launch of this publication corresponds with Medicare open enrollment, which begins October 15th and runs through December 7th. During this time, many of those eligible for Medicare will be reviewing their options for 2017 and making changes to reflect their current medical status.

Industry expert Ken Barrette, partner at Optimity Advisors, believes this book will change the way retirees look at Medicare, stating: “In the ever-changing and complex world of Medicare insurance products, Dr. Luo provides consumer-centric, simplified insights to educate seniors on making informed decisions. This book provides a starting foundation so every person, whether a family member, caregiver or recipient, can become Medicare savvy.”

Dr. Luo has also launched a free online learning platform called Doctor’s Choice University to help simplify the Medicare enrollment process for seniors. The first course, “Mastering Medicare for Retirees: Rhode Island,” is now available by visiting

“Everyone learns a little differently. Some are more visual while others prefer audio. Doctor’s Choice University was created as a video based course to educate retirees about their options.” said Dr. Luo. “The purpose is to not only educate individuals on their available options but also to give them an in depth understanding of the unique rules in their state.” he concluded.

“Retiree’s Guide to Medicare” is available for purchase on Amazon for $11.99.
