Holistic and Natural Health Care with Medicare
Medicare provides coverage for services with doctors, pharmacies, and hospitals that have legally agreed to serve Medicare clients. Holistic and natural health care providers are usually not legally equipped to support Medicare. In 2017, if you’re over the age of 65 you have to purchase a Medicare plan. But what if you only use holistic and natural methods and don’t plan on actually using Medicare?
Medicare Is An Investment
If you have Original Medicare, your premiums can be less than $200 per month. That’s a better deal than paying a fee every time you visit a holistic doctor. More importantly, if you have to rush to an emergency room one day, you’ll have to pay the total cost of your visit and care. An emergency medical professional is not going to drive you to your holistic care facility. A Medicare plan will help you pay for any potential emergency.
If you don’t purchase a plan now, you’ll be charged a penalty fee later – so it’s financially smartest to buy a Medicare plan as soon as you turn 65.
What To Buy
If you truly believe that you won’t use your Medicare plan, you’re still better off purchasing a small plan than not having coverage at all. If you prefer, you can enroll in Medicare Part A alone. It will only cover hospital services (no prescription drugs, no doctor’s appointments, no long-term, dental, hearing, or vision care). Additionally, you can enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan, which will help you pay for your coinsurance, copayments, and deductibles.
