Arizona Senior Health Insurance

Explore Your Options

Like other states, Arizona has a variety of Senior Health Insurance options to choose from. However, Arizona has a higher than average influx of retirees flocking to its warm climate. So once you get there, or decide to stay post retirement, which health insurance option will you choose: Medicare Supplement, Prescription Drug Plan, or Medicare Advantage Plan? MySeniorHealthPlan.com is here to help make that choice easy.

Medicare Supplement Plans are state specific and can range from Plans A-G with the benefits varying. They allow you to travel state to state. This aspect may be appealing to those seniors who live in Arizona during the winter and another state during the intensely hot summers. For more information on Medicare Supplement Plans please contact MySeniorHealthPlan.com.

Often, Medicare Supplement Plans are paired with a Prescription Drug Plan because they do not include drug coverage. If you need Extra Help paying for your prescriptions please visit http://www.socialsecurity.gov/medicare/prescriptionhelp/

Similar to other states, Medicare Advantage Plans are offered based on county. There are options of HMO or PPO plans. To determine which plan would best suit your needs, speak to a Senior Health Insurance Specialist at MySeniorHealthPlan.com today. They can walk you through the plan benefits and help you determine whether a network based or non-network based MAPD would be best for you.

Arizona is the state with the second largest Native American population in the United States. Therefore, it is important to understand how Indian Health Services and Medicare work together. Medicare benefits are available to those who are 65 and older or who have been disabled for 2 years even if they receive Indian Health Services as well. The relationship between the Federal Government and Native American tribes constitutes various rules to follow. However, CMS has made Medicare & Medicaid healthcare services accessible to all Native Americans who are eligible.
