We’ve all heard the saying “more isn’t always better, sometimes it’s just more”. Occasionally, more is good. However, when it comes to your Medicare premium, more is just more.
Your benefits are important to you. They provide a safety net that protects you from the uncertainty of facing unforeseen medical issues, and let’s face it, we all want that reassurance. But what happens when the cost of your safety net and reassurance it too high? You begin to sacrifice necessities such as paying your bills, buying food and purchasing household goods.
Good news! There are programs offered that are designed to provide assistance, with you in mind!
Programs such as Medicaid (Access), Extra Help (Low-Income Subsidy) and PACE, are available to those who need assistance. Programs like these can pay your monthly premiums, partial or full, and can help pay for prescription drugs. These programs are free to join and we, at Focus Senior Benefits, will gladly help you navigate them to see if they can help you, at no cost to you.
We all want the most out of our benefits, so why not take advantage of these programs? Don’t fall into the “sometimes it’s just more” trap!
