Original Medicare Risks for Connecticut Seniors
As you might be aware, Original Medicare health insurance is not all inclusive. It's designed to cover major medical only, and it pay less than eighty percent (80%) of what it does cover, leaving you seriously exposed to financial disaster.
Most seniors on Medicare in Connecticut are totally unprepaired. That's because Original Medicare benefits cover less than half of all health related expenses. You read that right, only half.Due to the high cost of medical care, Connecticut 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.
With Original Medicare you are responsible for twenty percent (20%) of your major medical costs, prescriptions, dental, vision, hearing, routine foot care, and long-term care, to name just a few. Fortunately, you can take a couple of simple steps to protect yourself with one or more health insurance supplements. You also have the option to replace your traditional Medicare with a private plan.
