Retirement planning

Medicare for senior

Start planning for your future today

Health care may be the largest retirement expense for some seniors. That’s why it’s important to factor healthcare expenses into your retirement planning.

Every single person needs a unique plan for their retirement. If you know your retirement plan and budget, choosing the right Medicare plan can be straightforward.

Choose the right Medicare plan

Medicare Supplement plans

Our Medicare Supplement plans cover many of the expenses that Original Medicare doesn’t. You can get the most complete coverage by combining Original Medicare, a Medicare Supplement plan, a Prescription Drug plan (Part D), and a dental plan. You could save on out-of-pocket costs and maintain the flexibility to see any medical doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. Many Medicare Supplement plans also provide emergency coverage outside the U.S.

Medicare Advantage plans

You can avoid many out-of-pocket costs by enrolling in one of our Medicare Advantage plans (an alternative to Original Medicare). They provide coverage similar to Original Medicare along with some extra services that Original Medicare lacks. Learn more about our Medicare Advantage plans.

Still not sure?

You have many Medicare health plan combinations and options to choose from. Choose what’s right for you based on how you plan to spend your time. Will you travel a lot? Be on a strict budget? Are there specific doctors or hospitals you want to see? All of these considerations, and more, can influence your decision.

Other costs

There are many other costs, fees and penalties that you can easily avoid if you do your homework! Learn how to keep your Medicare costs to a minimum here.
