Are you concerned about dwindling income and increasing medical expenses during your retirement? Are your out-of-pocket costs for medical bills not covered by Medicare becoming unpredictable and keeping you up at night?
When you rely on Medicare alone, you will be required to pay for 20 percent of each doctor bill that isn’t for preventive care. If your health deteriorates, that could leave you with a huge medical bill. With the current economic crisis, not all of us will have enough savings to meet those medical bills. This can leave us in deep in debt.
One way to increase your financial security is by supplementing Medicare with Medicare Supplement Insurance, commonly called Medigap. Medigap Plans fill in the “gaps” of Medicare such as the deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance. It is much easier to plan your finances when your monthly expenses are predictable and that is one of the luxuries a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan can offer.
