3 Medicare Benefits to Utilize

Don’t let the complexity of Medicare overwhelm you if you’re new to the program. It is important to know what Medicare offers and to take full advantage of each benefit, and we can help with that. There are benefits that a lot of Medicare beneficiaries do not know about. Here are some of the top benefits that people are not aware of with Medicare.

Weight loss

As you age, weight gain becomes harder to avoid and adds to the health risks of old age, like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Being overweight can lead to more serious health conditions and poor mobility skills.

Many do not know that Medicare offers coverage for weight loss programs and even weight loss surgery for qualified beneficiaries as long as they are deemed medically necessary. Talk to your doctor to find out if you qualify for coverage.

There's never been an easy way for Medicare beneficiaries to save on services and products not covered by Medicare alone, until now.

Alcohol abuse help

Alcohol abuse is very serious. That is why Medicare will help beneficiaries that find themselves in trouble and with health issues related to alcohol consumption.

Not only will Medicare cover services such as counseling and treatment, but your coverage will also conduct preventative screenings to help you avoid alcohol misuse.

If you think you are at risk and need help with alcohol abuse, talk to your doctor to find out the options that are available to you.

Telehealth

Telehealth services often go unnoticed or are ignored because it may seem complicated. But telehealth, or medical care you can get from your home via the internet, is ideal for seniors who struggle with mobility issues or live in rural or isolated areas.

Telehealth allows those who cannot travel easily to get healthcare from their home. Whether it is due to a lack of physical mobility or no way to travel to a doctor’s office, telehealth helps cut out the trouble by allowing you to access healthcare from your home and on your schedule in some cases. Talk to your healthcare provider to see what your options are.

It is important to do your research when it comes to your Medicare benefits. Don’t miss out on the benefits that are included in your coverage.
