Paying for Health Care

One of the biggest concerns for anyone, regardless of age, is paying for health care. While some people have good insurance plans that will cover most expenses, others do not. Several options are available for seniors facing health care costs, many of which are explained in this section. Other possibilities do exist as well, including HMO’s, employer health benefits, and indemnity policies, but are not covered here.

The programs described in this section do change from time to time, so it is always a good idea to obtain up-to-date information directly from the agency responsible for managing or regulating the program.
