What costs are involved in Medicare Part A? What are “extra” medical expenses? How much does a supplemental plan cost on average per month? How much do Medigap plans cost on average each year? For how many years would I have this type of coverage if I purchase it now?” Do any providers offer free or discounted rates for senior citizens who need these types of services but don’t qualify as low income seniors under Medicaid guidelines? Who should consider purchasing long term care?
The first thing you should know about Medicare is that there are two parts: Part A, which covers hospitalization and limited skilled care, and Part B, which covers doctors’ visits, medical equipment like walkers or wheelchairs. You may also need to purchase a supplemental plan if your employer’s insurance doesn’t cover all of your needs. Medigap plans (Part C) might be cheaper than paying for the same service out-of-pocket at a time when you’re older. If you’ve retired already, this decision will depend on how much money you have saved in retirement funds relative to what expenses still remain each month after taxes.
Knowing what might happen to your health insurance after retirement is of utmost importance. This article will discuss the various options you may have and answer some common questions about post-retirement care, so that you can make an informed decision for yourself!
