Getting ready to enroll in Medicare and a Medicare Supplemental Plan? Be sure you know this important tip as you’re getting started!
With so much information available for retirees it’s difficult to know where to begin. This overview on Medicare Supplement Insurance will get you started.
With so many Medicare Supplement plans to consider choosing the right coverage can be difficult.
Medicare supplement plans are a great alternative to having a long-term health insurance plan. Many individuals do not have enough money to pay for health insurance, so they decide to get the insurance through the government’s Medicare program.
It’s important to understand that Medicare Part A and Part B leave some pretty significant gaps in your health-care coverage. Here’s a closer look at what isn’t covered by Medicare, plus information about supplemental insurance policies and strategies that can help cover the additional costs, so you don’t end up with unexpected medical bills in retirement.
Are you confused and overwhelmed by Medicare??
Worried about making the wrong decision and being stuck with a plan that doesn’t cover your medical and prescription needs when you need it most?
Don’t worry! You are not alone. The vast majority of seniors who are on Medicare have absolutely no idea which type of plan they have, and what it does and does not cover.
Getting health coverage is one of the most important parts of aging. Often times, especially when we are in good health, we may neglect the importance of getting this coverage. However, with potential unforeseen medical expenses looming, this is a crucial time to make sure you are completely covered. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover all of your Medical expenses at 100%.
If you’re nearing age 65, you’re probably considering your Medicare enrollment options. The standard coverage beneficiaries receive is Medicare Parts A and B, known as Original Medicare. Part A includes coverage for hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and hospice care while Part B includes doctor visits, outpatient therapy, ambulances, and medical equipment.
If you’ve recently enrolled in Original Medicare, congratulations! Now is a good time to learn about the different parts of Medicare, so you can understand what your benefits include and decide if you want to sign up for additional coverage.
