Insurance Medical Senior Requirements

Do most medical insurance plans meet senior needs today? That's a question I had to ask myself when one of my friends commented about cuts in services to her aging grandparents.


It can be difficult finding affordable senior health insurance, but it is possible. I looked around and found out that most major insurance companies offered options, as did Medicare, with medical supplement insurance plans.

Despite the changing platform for healthcare delivery today, it is still possible to not only compare, but purchase insurance, medical, senior needs, vision and dental, and so forth by asking around. I contacted my current insurance agent, who suggested a number of health insurance options available to seniors.

Medicare is the most popular in the United States, funded by the federal government for those 65 years of age or older. When it comes to insurance, medical, senior needs, illnesses, and specialized care, it pays to compare options.

I learned that individuals on Medicare as a primary insurance provider can also file insurance claims to secondary insurance, medical senior plans, and other options.

Having supplementary or secondary private insurance, or through employer group plans, retiree programs, or unions is an excellent way to insure that the healthcare costs faced by your elderly loved one are, and remain, as affordable as possible.

Insurance Medical for Seniors - Help is Out There
by: Anonymous

When I found out that my mom wasn't covered for certain issues and medications, I made sure we looked around for a supplemental insurance plan that could help pick up the cost of expenses.

Remember that information and help is out there. You just need to ask around.

Look into government-sponsored supplemental medical insurance plans for seniors. Plans may differ by state or region, but they do provide options for senior insurance medical coverage.

It's also possible for senior veterans to enroll in Medicare when they specify Medicare as their secondary coverage source, and provides access to VA as well as a non-VA physicians.

Just a thought....
