Medical bills are expensive and there’s no disputing that. Even a trick to the hospital or a simple doctor’s visit can cost a pretty penny, depending on where you live. In Dallas, that is no exception and trips to the hospital do cost a couple hundred at least. This is exactly why it’s a good idea to have some kind of insurance whether it be by your work or by the government.
Now what about seniors?
Your children are all taken care of with their insurance but you have Medicare and you’re wondering if you really are taken care of. You have heard the horror stories about how sometimes Medicare doesn’t cover everything and that worries you. Even as a healthy senior, it’s something you take seriously because you can’t predict the future. Well you’re smart in thinking that way even though you are a healthy individual.
So what can do you?
Well worldwide health insurance companies offer alternative insurances and some of them are decently priced. There an insurance known as Medigap and they are an alternative for you. Their prices start low but they can go up as with any insurance, depending on what plan you choose. Their motto is they fill in the gaps that Medicare doesn’t and cover those ‘gaps’ that Medicare won’t hence the name. Medigap is an option for you.

There’s also Humana Medicare plans, which have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. They have a range of options you can choose from and they’re supposed to be easy to work with. Their commercials specifically ask the question if you need more coverage and they also say they close the gap that Medicare doesn’t. This is another option to consider when looking for an alternative.
You can also search the internet for specific terms such as: extra coverage or something along those lines. The internet is a good resource for that kind of search and this way, you can also do your research and make sure you actually need the extra coverage or want the extra coverage.
It’s also a good idea to research the insurance company you choose and look at reviews because despite ratings, some people could have had bad experiences. At the same time, don’t let that persuade you from refraining with extra coverage because while some people have had bad experiences, others had good experiences. Do keep the reviews in mind and keep in mind what the review says and why their experience was so bad. The more detailed reviews of why their experiences were stressful are the ones to go by because they went in description of what happened. Either way, simple terms in the search bar can help you find what you’re looking for if you need it.
Whether you choose to get extra coverage or not is ultimately up to you but remember the options I gave you and remember the search option is our best friend. Remember to always do your research and take reviews into mind but to also know they are only individual experiences. Either way, don’t be afraid to ask questions if you’re unsure about something.
