I bet with almost all my heart you did not know all three of these... unless you are very very close to me or a part of the mama bear family aka- one of my awesome clients.
Yes you will be shocked and amazed to learn that Original Medicare covers quite a bit of out-of-the-box brilliance and remember the beauty of public information?
Original Medicare is amazing- ten years in and this is how I still feel about Medicare in general. You have complete transparency, accountability, and all of your coverage is public information. Finally, health coverage with no surprises.
Do you want to know 3 amazing, shocking services Original Medicare helps cover?
1. Original Medicare pays for Chiropractic visits. Part B covers manual manipulation of the spine by a chiropractor if medically necessary. (services or tests a chiropractor orders, including xrays and massage therapy are not covered)
2. Original Medicare Part B covers up to 12 acupuncture visits in 90 days for chronic low back pain. Isn’t that awesome.
3. Original Medicare Part B helps pay for insulin if someone is insulin dependent and uses a pump. If you self-administer, that goes to part B, but I have personally seen part B coverage of insulin change someone’s whole life financially. If you have any other questions about if or how a service is covered, as long as you have original medicare it is all public information, and you can access it 24/7. If you need help deciding what coverage may be right for you, schedule a call with me, Ellie Saul, your Medicare Mama Bear. You worked your whole life for this. Protect your retirement.
