Good News for Seniors Who Enroll in a 2021 Medicare Supplement Plan
There is one simple truth that those of age 65 and older must know. Original Medicare (Parts A & B provided by the government) is designed to be the minimum coverage. With original Medicare, patients are at risk of huge out-of-pocket medical bills for care that isn’t covered:
The official government site for Medicare estimated that the yearly Out-of-Pocket Costs for people in Good Health in 2019 was $7,850, and expenses are expected to climb in 2021.
Starting in 2021, Medigap policies can no longer cover the deductible for doctor visits and seniors will have to pay for it themselves. Their goal is to make patients think twice about using medical services as they will have to pay something for them. This can be a dangerous mentality to have when considering ones health.
