Sadly, healthcare for seniors has not been a popular topic of conversation in the 2016 presidential campaigns. However, it’s important to address Medicare when making your choice this fall for president of the United States.
According to Steve Vernon of cbsnews.com, “Medical insurance is a critical part of any retirement plan. Most retirees age 65 and older are covered by Medicare, and many buy Medigap or Medicare Advantage plans to cover what Medicare doesn’t. Retirees under age 65 must usually purchase insurance on their own or, if they’re lucky, be covered by a former employer’s healthcare plan.”
Vernon insists that “your options will be significantly influenced by the next president’s intentions for Medicare benefits and its financing, as well as health care plans for retirees under age 65.”
