Philadelphia, PA, June 08, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- In a continuing effort to educate the Medicare Qualified public, Better insurance Options has released a new Podcast regarding a very important, but seldom discussed topic, end of life expenses. Unlike many insurance companies, Better Insurance Options has included Podcasts in their portfolio of media outlets. This particular episode explains one of the hidden pitfalls of Medicare Advantage, end-of-life expenses.
Medicare is a fee-for-service plan, and most clients simply do not consider how this will effect them later in life. Better Insurance Options feels that it is critical to enlighten the general public that, as their need for service goes up, so will their share of the cost. Carrying that logic forward, during their last year of life, costs are likely to be highest, and they will not be present to meet these expenses.
"It's a sad and simple story," said Frank Sutter, Principal of Better Insurance Options. "It is not intentional, but so many people leave their loved ones with a considerable amount of end-of-life expenses." It's easy to understand, but so many people never look at it." The Podcast is not only centered on creating awareness, but also providing an answer. "Medicare Advantage is a wonderful program, and works for so many people, but there is a gap in protection that people should be aware of. I hope all Medicare Advantage members, and anyone who is considering Medicare Advantage, listen to this very important podcast, to at least be aware of it."
Advantage is fee-for-service, and thus is extremely cost effective in good health, less so in failing health situations.
Maximum Out of Pocket levels are uncomfortably high and growing yearly, just like the rest of health care in general.
End of life expenses must, by definition, be left for a loved one to deal with, in the best ways available to them.
"It may be uncomfortable to discuss, but it is a critical topic," continued Sutter. "There is an answer, I hope people contact us to avoid this issue."
