6 Ideas to Strengthen Medicare

Medicare has made an enormous difference in the health and lives of older Americans, but, as with every big program, there's room for improvement.  We asked experts for specifics.  The suggestions listed below vary in cost and savings and are not universally supported.  But all seek to make Medicare more patient-friendly and financially stable as it enters its sixth decade of service to the nation.

1.  Notify everyone by mail about Medicare options as their 65th birthday apporaches.  You're largely on your own figuring out the tangle of rules, rates and deadlines that govern Medicare enrollment.  Pestering older friends, searching websites, you may get basic things wrong and do major harm to your finances, not to mention your health.  "We believe that all Americans should get a letter several months before their 65th birthday giving them straightforward information on how and when to enroll in Medicare, and a special number to call to discuss their own situation," says Joe Baker, president of the Medicare Rights Center, a consumer group.  At present, such letters go only to people who are already receiving Social Security Benefits.

2. Let latecomers get coverage right away.  If you're late signing up for Medicare, you may be hit with late penalties that permanently raise your premiums.  A lesser-known penalty for lateness is that you can sign up only during an annual general enrollment period, January 1 to March 31, and your coverage won't begin until July 1 of the same year.  That can be months with no insurance protection, potentially leading to a drained bank account or unattended illness.  AARP is among advocacy groups arguing that this is financially unfair and detrimental to good health.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Geo Thermal Heating and Cooling - Standard feature at Bailey Park 55+ Community in Benton, PA

Using geothermal heating and cooling is a great way to lower your home's operating costs and lessen your impact on the environment.  Geothermal systems leverage the fact that below about 10 feet, the Earth's temperature remains fairly constant from season to season, at about 50-56 F.  A reservoir of water in your geothermal well is used to help heat your home in the winter, and cool your home in the summer.  This simple system can save you 30-70% in heating costs and 20-50% in cooling costs.

You can also claim a tax credit for 30% of the cost of your geothermal heat pump.  Click here to read more about this federal tax incentive.

 Best of all, a geothermal heating and cooling system comes standard in all homes at Bailey Park.  That's just one of the reasons living at Bailey Park 55+ Community really is "A Wonderful Life".
