Assistance with health care today is an even more critical concern in this country with the new Healthcare Law in effect. Many seniors over the age of 65, including those who are disabled, rely on Medicare for health coverage. However, like everything else, things change and so does medical care. Considering this is it’s worth noting that you ask the question, can my Medicare benefits run out? Of course then can and very well may unless you know the facts.
It’s a chain of events. Too many legal and illegal persons taking advantage of free hospitalization, emergency care and nursing home care. Medicare benefits don’t continue on until you die! If a Medicare person is injured or sick enough to be placed in a hospital and exceeds their 90 day allotment, the electric door exit opens and out you go.
After you get the boot from the hospital if inpatient care is required you can be placed in a nursing home and Medicare will cover the expense for 80 days, then be converted to Medicare Part B, where you pay for care.
Sooner or later Medicare is not going to be able to protect you. If they run out and you didn’t have the foresight to look ahead and ask yourself, can my Medicare benefits run out, prepare yourself by investigating health coverage gaps with some different Medigap plans. Don’t wait until the worst case scenario hits and your screwed.
