Medicare Health Insurance and Reform

0

Medicare which involves our senior citizen population is about to face major changes. The health care delivery system will be rearranged and the medical insurance providers will be making new and innovative changes. Half a trillion dollars is being removed from the Medicare system that our senior citizens have come to depend upon.

We the people still are floundering in unchartered waters. We still are left in the dark as to how many changes will be in effect over the next few years. Ultimately, the Medicare insurance system will meld with the Medicaid program giving the government to institute a single-payer health care system. This is the goal of the government because they just wanted to find a way to collect more monetary funds from the American people as they have successfully achieved with Social Security.

Many of our senior citizens also found that the Medicare does not pay for all services. Out of this minor discrepancy, there have been a number of health insurance policies devised that serve as a supplement to the health coverage and cover the open twenty percent.

The federal government is not happy with the supplemental program and is having this discontinued to discourage our senior citizens from visiting with their health care provider as often as the currently visit. How will our senior citizens find the best Medicare health insurance policy that will be available?

1. Determine what your individual eligibility is for Medicare health plans
2. Read your prospective Medicare insurance policy and understand it is divided into Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D
3. Develop a complete understanding to your person health care requirement
4. Research all the health insurance providers who offer Medicare to find the one that best suits your health care requirements
5. Review your Medicare health insurance plan and make notes of any changes that may affect your personal health care requirements

There will be many changes and eliminations to your current Medicare health insurance policy because there is expected to be a half trillion dollars removed from the entire Medicare health insurance system. Medical health care you have grown to be accustomed to will soon be revamped to suit the needs of the federal government under the guidelines of the Health and Human Services Department and the Internal Revenue Services. Where this will leave you in the future is uncertain. The time to pay close attention is now.
