For those who prefer video:  Medicare & the Cost of Cancer Treatment

I realise the article is a bit long, but the subject matter is critically important.  When first diagnosed with cancer, there is a lot going through your mind. One small part is the question of “What is this going to cost me?”  The battle with cancer can be emotionally draining without worrying or wondering about your health insurance and how it works.  This information on how Medicare handles the cost of cancer treatment is much more difficult to find and piece together than it should be.  I believe the information in this article can be a great relief, benefit, and resource for anyone about to embark on a very tough personal battle.  The information has been compiled from numerous sources including Medicare.gov and the National Cancer Society.

For those new to Medicare, this information will help you decide if you are more comfortable with Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage.  For the person who has cancer or a history of cancer, we hope the information will ease any financial uncertainty of not knowing what part of your treatment may or may not be covered by your current Medicare plan and how much out-of-pocket expense can be expected from you.

Share This:

Whether you are just turning 65 and enrolling in Medicare, or are over 70 and looking to keep your health insurance cost down, seniors in Florida and across the country continue to search for the best value in Medicare Supplement coverage.  Medicare Supplement Plan N should be among the top three Medigap Plans to consider.  This Medicare  Supplement Plan N review explains why.

In a previous blog, we wrote of Medicare Plan F High Deductible as often the best value for seniors in Florida who are in generally good health. While Plan F-HD makes sense for most from a pure numbers perspective, many seniors prefer to have greater coverage, but balk at the high cost of a Plan F or realize that with Plans F and C being discontinued as of 2020, they do not want to be stuck in those specific Medicare Plans when no new younger seniors are allowed entry and the rising medical cost per aging beneficiary push premiums to prohibitive levels.

Enter Plan N, one of the most popular Medicare Supplement plans in the country because it covers all the most significant potential medical expenses, but at a cost much lower than a Plan F.  In fact, the premiums for Plan N are often 30% to 35% less than Plan F.   Plan N is one of the most popular Medicare Supplement plans in the state of Florida, as well as many other states across the country because of the cost to benefit features that make it one of the best values in Medicare Supplement plans.

Here is how to compare a Plan N to other Medicare Supplement Plans —
