If I click on a website that uses the general term “boomer” in their marketing vernacular, and the products they sell are anti-aging creams and serums, which age group are they targeting? In my 40’s I may have bought up every anti-aging cream on the market, but folks in their 60’s may be not as interested in anti-aging lotions and more interested in moisture and sun protection.
You should be cautious however, as there are many websites that look like medicare supplement leads generation Brokerages, but are really nothing more than “lead collectors.” They get your personal information and then they sell it to numerous agents who descend on you like hungry buzzards.
As you can see, supplements work with the original plan. There are two distinct premiums to pay. One goes to Part B, and the other goes to the private insurer.
2) Your share of medical costs could be significant, which is the purpose of medicare supplements (often called Medigap, because it fills in the gaps left by Medicare alone).
This may seem like a bad deal, but unlike a savings account, you can spend your $1,000 all at once or spread it out. As soon as you make the first premium payment, your coverage is in force. So, you do not have to save up before you go to the dentist. This can be a great benefit if you get a toothache in February. You can get it fixed immediately instead of waiting for two or three months for the funds to accumulate.
I decided that I should go to work at home writing articles like this one and helping others like me on their own journeys to reach their goals. Whatever you choose to do, remember this. Don’t be caught off guard. Take action. Take control.
