Financial Risks with Original Medicare in Arizona
Are you concerned that Original Medicare is not enough coverage? You're not alone. That's because Medicare pays just eighty percent (80%) of the cost of the healthcare services it covers, leaving you to pickup the tab for the rest.
The reality is that Original Medicare benefits cover a bit more than half of all health care expenses for most Arizona seniors. This reality comes as a complete surprise to most people, but it is true.Due to the high cost of medical care, Arizona seniors risk massive healthcare debt on everything from accidents, a serious illness, and the out-of-pocket costs for doctor visits to manage chronic health conditions.
Original Medicare does not cover your prescriptions, dental, hearing, vision, routine foot care, or long-term care, and it leaves you on the hook for twenty percent of all major medical costs. You needn't worry, because you have a lot of options to supplement your basic Medicare coverage or replace it completely with private health insurance.
