We can’t go back in time and slap on sunscreen before that pool party in our teen years, but we can still protect our skin from damage caused by future sun exposure. Take some time and apply a little bit of sunscreen each day☀

Even though Medicare pays for many preventive services and covers most medically necessary services, it's not a complete system of healthcare.
Most significantly it doesn't pay for long-term care at home or in a nursing home when this care is primarily personal care services or custodial care.
Who in your family will be responsible for providing care and how will that impact them financially?
Hearing loss happens for different reasons- age, exposure to loud noises, illness, injury, and even certain medications.
Medicare DOES cover hearing and balance exams that are ordered by your healthcare provider. Medicare DOES NOT cover hearing aids, hearing exams, and exams to fit hearing aids. Do your research before you buy any hearing aids to avoid paying fully out-of-pocket. Hearing aids are incredibly important to millions of people, and you can find ways of paying for hearing aids without breaking the bank! #seniormedicareadvice#seniormedicare#medicareadvantage#medigap#babyboomers#lifeafter65#hearingloss#lousiana

5 things you probably didn’t know about Medicare: - Medicare doesn’t start just because you claim Social Security - The insurance isn’t entirely free - You don’t have to enroll in Medicare just because you turn 65 — but you may want to - Medicare doesn’t travel with you on vacation - Long-term care isn’t covered — at least not for the long-term

Medicare is not Enough for Retirees. This is How Much Extra They Have to Pay for Full Coverage 🏥👵🏻 Experts agree that you need a lot of money to retire. Life expectancy continues to increase, which means you must have a larger nest egg before leaving the workforce. Inflation and taxes will both probably increase with time. And perhaps most surprising to a lot of retirees, the cost of healthcare is now rising faster than everything else. To make things worse, Medicare doesn’t cover the entire cost of health insurance. That’s why many companies sell plans to cover the so-called “Medigap.” The size of the Medigap depends on where you live.
