Financial Risks with Original Medicare in Oklahoma
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 Oklahoma are totally unprepaired. That's because Original Medicare benefits cover less than half of all health related expenses. You read that right, only 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 Oklahoma, 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. 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.
