Hospital bills, prescription medicines, and other medical expenses are a bigger problem during retirement when income is often reduced. That’s also the time when health care bills tend to go up, but that bad timing doesn’t have to deplete your savings. One very popular option for senior health care is known as Medicare Supplement Insurance or Medigap Insurance. It comes in the form of 10 benefit packages that help out with hospital stays, the cost of prescription drugs, and doctor visits.
Recently, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield created Anthem Extras Packages for Medigap customers. This plan provides extra benefits, such as coverage for dental and vision care in one convenient package. It’s only available as a stand alone plan or in addition to one of the existing Medigap Plans.
If you’re missing the dental and vision benefits you had before retiring, take a look at this new option. Anthem has three packages you can choose from and they have affordable monthly premiums that range from $20 to $52.
Anthem Extras Packages are available in 10 states. We’ll have happy to check for these and other coverage options where you live. Just give us a call to arrange a free confidential consultation.
