As you wait to age into 65 you might be wondering your healthcare options until you are Medicare eligible. While you decide its important to know how your coverage decisions affect the cost of your premium. Pivot Health, a health insurance company has now introduced a new health plan coined “Bridge To Medicare’ which can serve you as temporary health insurance that gives you affordable coverage, while you wait to age in.
Benefits of Bridge To Medicare
The Bridge to Medicare Plan not only combines health coverage for large expenses but offers fixed first dollar benefits to supplement routine types of medical expenses. These expenses include routine medical, dental and vision care, as well as specialist care, and also include treatments, including medications. The plans also include prescription drug benefits and additional non-insurance medical services like telemedicine,
reduced-cost vision exams and eyeglasses, hearing benefits and emergency helicopter services.
Bridge To Medicare Combines Two Policies
The plan offers two certificates of insurance, one being a short term policy and the other a limited benefit health insurance policy. When used together the Bridge Plan offers lower cost coverage that beats out the competition. It is also important to know that the monthly premiums are billed separately.
The A coverage is used for:
Unexpected large medical
expenses up to $250,000 or $500,000 each year.
• You are responsible for paying your
deductible amount first, and then 20%
or 30% of your medical bills up to a
$10,000 coinsurance limit. After you
hit the $10,000 limit, the plan will pay
100% of your covered expenses up
to the 364 days maximum you have
chosen for the policy
• Your out-of-pocket expenses are
capped, up to a maximum covered
amount each year
