We're going to cover everything you need to know about retiring early and your health care plan options before Medicare in one minute.
We hear it all the time. People are tired of working. They're fed up with just working for insurance. They're surprised that they have good, affordable insurance options before going onto Medicare. Most people aren't eligible to go on Medicare until age 65. And finding the right plan before then can be very confusing.
There are two major types of individual insurance plans to consider: Marketplace plans or short-term insurance plans.
The Marketplace plans offer coverage for pre-existing conditions and preventive care. And you may be eligible for premium assistance based on your household income.
Short-term health insurance may be a good option if you're concerned about the what-ifs that may pop up unexpectedly.
We at RetireMed can help you bridge the gap from retirement to Medicare.
