Health Insurance for Montana Seniors

Seniors living in Montana who need health insurance may find it difficult to get a local insurer. The fact is, there are few insurance companies providing services to seniors outside of large national insurance corporations or federal and state health insurance plans. The state has decided to come out with a few programs that address the growing concerns about the high level of uninsured people living in Montana. Programs like Cover the Uninsured and advocacy groups like Forward Montana only focus on high risk groups. This usually means they focus on primarily children because the state’s children are below national averages for immunization. In other words, health insurance for Montana seniors is still an underserved area for the state.

The silver lining of course is that there is always health insurance coverage available through Medicaid and Medicare, but choosing the right level of coverage is often difficult to assess. At GeriCareFinder, we can help you to realistically calculate the level of coverage you will need and what it will cost you. If you are new to caring for a senior in Montana, we can familiarize you with the different types of care they will need through our helpful articles and our Support Tools function. This information is free and is only meant to help you plan and obtain better, more comprehensive care for a senior.

You can read the definitions of different kinds of care related to seniors if you don’t already know what is involved. Then, use any of our tools to calculate the level of care you’ll need to plan for. Even though many seniors are healthy and independent, they may still need help with daily housekeeping, with mobility or nutrition. Those who are older or living with chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s may need more substantial help, such as with toileting, with their behavior, or maybe even 24 hour supervision.

Once you have determined the level of care you need (or need to obtain for someone else), use our financial calculators to determine how much health insurance you need to buy, how much you’ll need to supplement your retirement income, to figure out how far your IRA, annuity  or Social Security benefits will go, and much more. We have many articles on our site solely to educate you about what seniors need. If you need more help understanding Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid, go to our Advisors for Seniors section and find an expert in your local Montana area who can explain all the details about these health insurance plans to you, so that you can make an informed decision.

Seniors in Montana and their caretakers can use this information to find the right level of care needed, to figure out what it will cost, and to locate the services and service providers relevant to the caring for themselves or their family member.

On our site, you can also search by zip code for advisors, doctors, products, services, nursing homes, insurance providers, visiting nurses, home cleaning, local meal delivery, estate attorneys, adult day care and much more. Visit us today and let us help you find health insurance for a senior living in Montana.
