Health Insurance for Seniors
At 66, mother is re-immigrating here from Belgium. She is still a US citizen, and is registered for Medicare. I am just starting to look into Medicare + Choice Plans and Medigap plans, and in spite of research, am still confused about the pros and cons of each. What do you know about the differences between these two options? Also, does anyone have any opinion and/or experience about either Kaiser's Sr. Advantage or Pacificare's Horizon plan? Finally, what exactly does open enrollment mean? The Medicare website says that applicants are able to take advantage of open enrollment (for Medicare + plans) in the first six weeks after signing up for Medicare B. Does that mean that that she can not be rejected for preexisting conditions? She just found out that she has early signs of cancer of the bladder and will need long term treatment and monitoring. Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
Hello, I am looking for a private individual or a non-profit agency to advise me on very specific quesions concerning the following issues: making an elderly person qualify for MediCal, MediCare or finding affordable private medical coverage for an elderly (under 65) person with severe pre-existing medical conditions If you or someone you know have used such an adviser please give me her/his contact info.
