For those who are 65 and older, smart money management is the key to getting the most out of retirement. Managing your day-to-day expenses while also balancing your investments, a mortgage and other bills and expense can be daunting, but it’s important to take a serious look at your finances and to keep a watchful eye on them throughout the year. Medical costs can make a big dent in your savings, which is why so many seniors are now opting for healthcare coverage solutions that help them get the most out of every penny.
Adding a Blue Shield Medicare Supplemental Plan (also referred to as a Medigap plan) enhances your existing Medicare coverage by extending coverage to areas where Medicare doesn’t quite cut it, with privately run plans that are designed for a wide range of budget needs. Blue Shield, one of the most widely recognized insurance providers in the US, offers seven different Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans in a variety of benefit levels and prices that are designed to work well with your needs. Blue Shield’s supplemental plans also include complimentary membership into the SilverSneakers Fitness Program, and wellness discounts on routine eye care, hearing aids and alternative health services discount program. That can really save you money over time. Those who sign up for a Blue Shield Medicare Supplemental Plan can also save 25% on acupuncture, chiropractic care or massage therapy, when the services are completed by a contracted provider.
If you find yourself wondering how Medicare will cover it all when it comes to maintaining your health and paying the medical bills, then it’s time to sign up for a Blue Shield Medicare Supplemental plan. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your current prescriptions are covered and that any new prescriptions down the road will be covered as well.
