Getting help with Medicare premiums
For senior citizens whose retirement income is low, those Medicare premiums – especially for Medicare Part B (doctors & outpatient services) and Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) – are a real drain on the family budget. If you qualify, help to pay those premiums is available, as described in this article appearing at WinkNews.com. While the article is written for a Florida senior population, the advice applies to anyone whose income is low and who have trouble paying their Medicare premiums. Click here to read more.
Note: Low income seniors can also go to a website sponsored by the National Council on Aging to get a personal report on all the benefits available to them. Simply go to www.benefitscheckup.org, enter your zip code, answer a few questions and a report detailing benefits available will be created for you.
