There are many important factors to consider when searching for new Medicare coverage for our loved ones. For instance, plan offerings such as food and medicine, pain management alternatives, transportation to ensure health, exercise programs, and help with daily activities. That’s why it’s important to take the time to make note of what matters the most for our loved ones. Then, it will be much easier to search and find the best Medicare plan. With that being said, Anthem Blue Cross in California offers Medicare Advantage plans to suit many family’s needs.
What we look for in a Medicare Plan
- Fitness: As you know, weight loss is harder as one gets older. Therefore, exercise programs tailored to older adults is an important factor for us, as weight loss has overall health benefits.
- Pain management: I think it’s highly important to find a plan that includes acupuncture, therapeutic massage, and the chiropractor. These services aren’t typically included in a Medicare plan, but many of Anthem Blue Cross’ Medicare Advantage plans are making it easier to access items that address everyday health needs.
- Help: Also, including personal home helpers to aid with daily activities at home would be greatly beneficial. That way we can be sure my nana will have help with daily activities that could cause her pain.
- Pest: Unfortunately, with age one becomes slower at everyday tasks that might lead to pests. That’s why, finding a plan that has access to pest control is something to consider. Thankfully, starting in 2020, some of Anthem’s Medicare Advantage plans will offer pest control.
My nana is getting older and health insurance is becoming more important. As you can imagine, there are more visits to the doctor, and the need to hire help. Thankfully, my nana planned for her retirement but finding a cost-efficient Medicare plan remains a priority.
All in all, exercise programs for older adults, pain management options, personal home helpers, and pest control are valuable and important factors when considering Medicare plan options. Anthem Blue Cross is committed to provide Medicare Advantage plans that are provide high-quality and affordable healthcare services.
