Healthcare Benefits For California's Senior Citizens

  • Their premiums would be lowered because Medicare would no longer be overpaying private medical insurance plans. Presently even the 66% of seniors not taking part in Medicare Advantage are overpaying thanks to high premiums. Most couples pay about $90 extra annually to help fund private medical insurance plans. The new healthcare reform bill cuts such payments.

  • There would be major savings on prescription drug costs. About 794,999 seniors in California fall into the "doughnut hole" of coverage. This can mean on average $4080 in out-of-pocket costs annually. However, the reform bill would slash this amount by 50%.

  • Free preventative services would be covered. Any recommended preventative testing would be free of charge. Presently a $842 colonoscopy is billed to seniors at $19,510. Free wellness visits would also be covered.
