Supplemental Medicare Insurance

My 95 year old mother developed congestive heart failure late last year. Until then, she was relatively healthy. Her condition worsened after two falls; one in January, the second in February. She sustained a fractured hip and underwent hip surgery in late February. Sadly, she passed a few weeks ago.
Mom received reams of paperwork during her medical odyssey; bills covering ambulance transportation, hospitalization, hospitalists (hospital physicians), lab work, MRI’s, surgeons, prescription medication, etc. These invoices were generated from a multitude of resources. I learned through the process that Medicare does NOT cover ALL expenses. Fortunately, my mother had a supplemental plan. I have no idea when she purchased the additional insurance, but thankfully it was in place to cover the thousands of dollars that were not covered by Medicare. I urge everyone to research supplemental insurance. I also suggest to the adult children of aging parents to review their parents’ insurance coverage BEFORE a medical crisis occurs.
