Many of the people in my life have health insurance through Medicare and I feel like the time I spend writing these blogs is like writing them for someone else. I write for me and I write to inspire you to live a life of self-awareness.
Because I write for me, I have a better understanding of what needs to be done and can better communicate with you. All the while, I’m also writing these blogs, I’m also writing what I hope will be a helpful guide to the Medicare website itself.
I’m on Medicare, which is pretty much the same thing, but they give you Medicare when you get to a certain age but you have to be able to work for it. At that point, you can get a second Medicare card and you are completely covered for the rest of your life. Medicare is pretty much the same thing on the other side of the coin.
Medicare is one of those things that seems to have a lot of overlap with the U.S. Department of Defense. It’s a great idea because it’s a lot easier to see both at the same time. It’s also very convenient because it allows you to use the same Medicare card everywhere you go. But it has some serious downsides, too.
The first problem is that Medicare, unlike health insurance, doesn’t actually pay for itself. When you go to the doctor to get a checkup, the office will deduct whatever you can afford from your Medicare account. This is because Medicare is simply a way for people to get a checkup for free. It doesn’t actually pay for itself.
The second problem is that Medicare doesnt actually pay for most medical services. The only thing it will pay for is prescription drugs. This doesn’t seem like a problem, but it is, because once you have a prescription you can’t get a refill. So if you are going to be sick, you will need to go see a doctor. And it costs money.
This is why Medicare is often referred to as a “death panel”. It is not. It is simply a way for people (like you and me) to get a checkup for free. It does not actually pay for itself.
The problem is for those of you who are wondering, whether buying a health insurance plan is a good thing. The short answer is “it depends.” The long answer is that Medicare will not pay for things that it has no intention of paying for, such as emergency dialysis. However, they may pay for things like home health care, dental care, and eye care. If you have health insurance that does not cover dental or eye care, Medicare will pay the difference.
The government’s health care system is a complicated beast that does not always work as well as it could. In fact, it’s hard to know if one’s health insurance coverage is a good thing or a bad thing. Some people are very happy with their coverage while others find it to be a bit of a pain in the neck.
For those with private coverage, Medicare may be a better choice than the other government programs because Medicare covers more services. Medicare does not require insurance to be purchased, so people who have private coverage can avoid the high costs that come with being uninsured. Medicare doesn’t make any specific claims for free care.
