How to Choose Medicare Plans

 

  • How Much of a Liability Are You? Your Medicare might be based on how much of a liability you are. In other words, how healthy are you? Do you have a preexisting condition that might or might not be covered? If you have a dangerous job like in construction or as a stunt man for Hollywood, you will be required to pay for higher premiums because of your higher risk of injury by default. Ditto when it comes to sickly people based on their medical history.

 

  • Job Insurance Benefits or Personally Paid For Insurance? There are some jobs that offer insurance plans or packages as part of their incentive for you to apply to them. Some have dental insurance, health insurance, life insurance, and (of course) Medicare. Whether you want to get the basic plans paid for by your company or if you wish to pay for something extra like a customized insurance plan that fits your needs outside of a basic plan, it’s all up to you.

 

  • Does the Plan Have The Silver Sneakers Program? Some plan participants can avail of the “silver sneakers” program from approved Medicare supplemental plan providers. This special program is advantageous when it comes to paying the costs of health-related services such as fitness classes and gym memberships. In other words, there are Medicare plans with programs that encourage your healthiness. Confirm locations in your locality that participate in the program before enrolling in a Medicare plan.
