Understanding choices for health insurance for older adults can be difficult
Older adults often need specialized medical assistance as they age, including different prescribed medications, dental care and more. Medical and dental assistance programs are available for older adults to ensure they get the health and dental care they need.
It can be confusing to figure out what services and equipment are covered and what alternative insurance options are available to help cover hearing and vision costs.
Our information specialists can help you access current medical resources that include:
Medicare Counseling: Volunteer counselors provide free counseling to people with Medicare (and those looking to sign up at age 65) to resolve issues with supplemental insurance, Medicare claims or bills, doctor’s bills, and problems with insurance companies regarding the payment of bills. They also support older adults during open enrollment periods.
My Medicare Matters: My Medicare Matters is an educational website created by nonprofit the National Council on Aging (NCOA). This service is designed to make it easier for people with Medicare (and those turning 65) to make informed and confident choices about their health coverage and to make the most of that coverage
Medical and Dental: Older adults and caregivers can find out about insurance plans, benefits eligibility, local providers and medical financial assistance resources.
Vision and Hearing: Learn what Medicare does and doesn’t cover related to vision and hearing care and where you can go to find help paying for these services.
