Original Medicare Risks for Kansas Seniors
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.
It is shocking to most Kansas seniors how little Original Medicare covers in the scope of total health care. For most seniors on Medicare the real figure is about fifty percent. That is correct, about half. If you do nothing to mitigate the risk your out-of-pocket costs will be higher. Due to the rising cost of healthcare in Kansas, you also run the risk of having massive debt due to an accident, critical illness, or a chronic condition (e.g., mood disorders, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, hypertension, etc).
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. The good news is that you can supplement your Medicare coverage with additional health insurance or replace it all together.
