Secondary Health Insurance Informative - Need A Secondary Insurance To Cover Beyond Medicare
My 83 year old Father has Medicare...and Medicare only. When I took him to the doctor today, they asked for additional insurance, which he doesn't have.
He has some health issues that need to be looked into and he is scheduled for some test.
Can anyone help me with a good recommendation for a secondary health provider that will pick up where Medicare ends? I don't know the first thing about this stuff. I tried to help my parents in the past with this, but then they got a mailbox stuffed full of papers, forms, offers and cards from every direction and all different insurance companies and we didn't know what they had, what might have been covered or if they were accepted or denied. Then my Mom just said the "you know what" with it all and she threw everything away. But, now I want to get the help for my Dad (My Mom passed away a few months ago and I want to make sure my Dad gets whatever help he needs). I guess it's called a supplement for Medicare. He has a wallet full of cards for prescriptions, I'm going through those now, to see if any of them are active or expired. He never throws anything away like that.
Anyway, any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
