Thread: Losing Insurance

    Losing Insurance

    I currently work part-time which provides me my health insurance. I do also have Medicare, but that would be considered secondary since I'm currently working. Because of some family health issues I will be cutting back on my work hours. This will make me ineligible for my health insurance through my employer.
    I understand that I will be able to use Medicare. But, I was always under the impression that I would need a secondary insurance. I took not qualified for public assistance. I was looking for advice on how to find/determine what other insurance would be appropriate.
    Thank you.

    Look for Medicare supplemental plans called Medigap plans. About half the states have them, and they must accept you if you're disabled and under 65.

    If your state doesn't have medigap plans, there are Medicare Advantage plans, which are similar, but not nearly as good as Medigap plans.
