Who Should Complete This Application For Extra Help With Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs?

You should complete this application for Extra Help on the Internet if:

    You have Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and/or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance); and
    You live in one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia; and
    Your combined savings, investments, and real estate are not worth more than $28,150, if you are married and living with your spouse, or $14,100 if you are not currently married or not living with your spouse. (Do NOT count your home, vehicles, personal possessions, life insurance, burial plots, irrevocable burial contracts or back payments from Social Security or SSI.) If you have more than those amounts, you may not qualify for the extra help. However, you can still enroll in an approved Medicare prescription drug plan for coverage.
 

 

Your New Medicare Card Is On It’s Way!

Q. Why is the Medicare Card changing? When will we get the new card and will it be plastic?

A. The new card is to help stop Identity thief and Medicare fraud. The social security number will be replaced with random numbers and letters. New cards will start being mailed out in April of 2018 and will take until 12-31-2019 to get out 58 million cards. Both cards will be able to be billed up until December 31, 2019.

The new card will NOT be plastic after all, too expensive. It will be red, white & blue, but a different design. You can laminate the new card. It will be a little smaller, the size of a credit card.

Make sure your mailing address is up to date. If your address needs to be corrected, contact Social Security at ssa.gov/myaccountor 1-800-772-1213.

FYI: Scam artists are calling seniors saying they are from Medicare and need your social security number to make your new card. Do NOT be fooled. Do not give your social security number to anyone over the phone.

 

 

65 Years Old is Still Young!!

How old is old? World Health Organization (WHO) had declared that 65 years old is still young.

Before based on the Friendly Societies Act (1875) in Britain, old was defined by the age of 50.

The UN has not adopted a standard criterion but lately 60 years old was referred to as the border age to the word “old”.

However, the health organization had done a new research recently, according to average health quality and life expectancy and defined a new criterion that divides human age as follow:

    0 to 17 years old: underage
    18 to 65 years old: youth or young people
    66 to 79 years old: middle aged
    80 to 99 years old: elderly or senior
    100+ years old : long lived elderly
