Knowledge is power and being in-the-know about what Medicare covers and what it does not is vital – for ourselves and for our loved ones that may need our assistance in their senior years!
What Medicare Doesn’t Cover:
– Prescription Drugs
– Long-Term Care (Independent, Assisted Living or Memory Care communities)
– Deductibles and Co-Pays
– Most Dental Care
– Routine Vision Care
– Hearing Aids
– Medical Care Overseas
