Coverage Gaps

Be aware, Medicare coverage is lacking for some important coverages, such as Dental/ Vision care, Short-Term Recovery care, and Final Expense coverage.

Dental/Vision Care Insurance

According to Medicare.gov, Medicare does not cover:

  • Routine Dental or Eye Care
  • Dentures, or
  • Hearing Aids or exams for fitting them.

An Affordable Solution: Dental/Vision Insurance

  • Most people lose coverage when they retire
  • It is important to maintain Dental care to avoid costly repairs later
  • Studies show checkups are more likely with insurance
  • Poor dental care can impact your health
  • Dental and Vision benefits can be structured to meet your needs and budget
  • Hearing benefits are available as well

Short-Term Recovery Care Insurance

Many of our customers assume that they are covered for recovery care, whether in a facility or at home, but Medicare benefits are quite restrictive, requiring among other things:

  • A minimum of 3 days/nights in the hospital
  • The need for skilled nursing care, not the more common recovery care or custodial care.

An Affordable Solution: Short-Term Recovery Care Insurance

  • Provides for home or temporary facility care. Gives you the option to recover at home, or if needed, to be in a facility until you can continue care at home.
  • Designed for recovery care, such as:
    • Hip, Knee Replacement
    • Broken bone
    • Stroke, heart attack, surgery
  • Coverage for up to 360 days
  • This is Not Long Term Care, but can be more affordable
  • Pays directly to you

Final Expense/Income Replacement Insurance

Medicare has no life insurance benefit and Social Security offers only a $255 benefit. Final Expense Insurance is different than regular life insurance purchased to protect your family. Following is a summary of the differences:

An Affordable Solution: Final Expense Insurance Coverage

  • Final Expense Insurance = Fast payout, lower amounts. While you may have insurance, investments and other assets, it can be difficult to access cash quickly. Final Expense Insurance focuses on quick payout to get you the cash you need quickly, and is typically purchased in lower amounts than typical for regular life insurance.
  • Settling an estate takes time. Settling your estate can take time while the needs of your loved ones are immediate. That’s why the focus is on a quick pay with final expense.
  • Cash for immediate needs
    • Funeral costs
    • Travel
    • food
    • lodging for family
    • Cemetery plot, headstone
    • Outstanding bills
