Being healthy is being wealthy, as what most people say. But sometimes, no matter how much we take care of our bodies, diseases come, mostly during the time we least expected it. And when we have it, it surely gets into own daily routines and cost a lot of money. Because of these, health insurance services become very valuable for all people on earth.
Health insurance solutions such as the medicare, can be advantageous to people in many ways. But in particular, this enables the insured not to be concerned too much about expenses on health when he or she gets sick.
Prior to exploring some of the key plans of medicare, let us tackle first a special concern about getting a health insurance. A lot of people believe that health insurance is just a waste of money because of the fact that the insured cannot enjoy the benefits unless he or she gets sick. Indeed, some of health insurance programs may not give your money back to you if you are perfectly healthy. But the bigger concern now is, will you still be completely healthy by the time you reach 65 or more? Well, I think it would be better to be insured in medicare or any reputable health insurance company rather than dying from expensive medical expenses.
Now, the qualifications to the federal health insurance called medicare may include senior individuals (65 and up), young adults with disabilities, and patients who are required to undergo dialysis or kidney transplant due to End Stage Kidney Disorder. The policies will go over several forms of solutions which will be quickly discussed below.
Essentially, this insures the hospital expenses and some other costs in certain medical care centers.
2. Part B
Essentially, it covers certain doctor’s fees, medical supplies, some outpatient care, and certain services for disease prevention.
III. Medicare Advantage
This plan is made possible through private companies as permitted by Medicare. It covers both part A and part B but have additional plans such as special needs plan, medical saving account plan and many more.
Part D: Prescription Drug Plan
This is an optional plan that can be added in the original medicare. Fundamentally, not all medications are covered in part A and part B. In this option, the insured will have the advantages of getting certain prescription medicines.
Medicare Supplemental Insurance
This is one of the medicare supplement plans that is operated privately and supplements the original medicare (A and B). In contrast to MA plans, it only connects the gap (uncovered items) of the original medicare plan.
