Americas Senior Health Insurance Plans: Medigap

Medicare Doesn't Cover as Much as You Might Have Thought

by Katie Banks+ on Apr 10, 2013

Today’s seniors aren’t your parents’ seniors. Let’s face it people are taking better care of themselves, looking better, and living longer than ever. This is why it’s so important to choose Americas senior health insurance plans, Medigap, and realize that Medicare doesn’t cover as much as you might have thought. Here are some things to consider when making your choice:

Medicare supports you in the short term

• Skilled Nursing -covers first 20 days, days 21-100 cost you $148 per day.
• Hospital Care -covers first 60 days, after you have paid your deductible.

How do I get covered for an extended stay?

Find a plan that fills in the gaps, known as Medicare Supplemental plans.

How much will I pay if I become seriously ill, and I only have Medicare?

It could cost you up to $1 Million for one year of care because there are no limits on out-of-pockets costs that you can accrue. To read more about the costs of Medicare read the article Can’t Afford Medigap F? Think Again.

Is Medicare Supplement insurance expensive?

Medigap plans range from basic to comprehensive, therefore the price varies. What is important is that the monthly premium pays off.
