Medicare Savings Account (MSA)

As you near the age of 65, you may find yourself concerned about the cost of healthcare and how to best prepare for your medical needs. If you are on a fixed income, you may be worried about how to afford your healthcare expenses. Fortunately, Medicare Savings (MSA) Plans may be able to help.

MSA Plans are a type of Medicare Advantage plan that provides a high-deductible health plan and a medical savings account (MSA). The MSA is funded by Medicare and can be used to pay for healthcare expenses until the high deductible is met. Once the deductible is met, the plan covers all of the Medicare-covered expenses for the rest of the year.

One of the main advantages of an MSA Plan is that the unused funds in your MSA account can roll over from year to year, meaning you can accumulate savings for future healthcare expenses. Additionally, MSA Plans typically have lower monthly premiums than other Medicare Advantage plans, making them an attractive option for those on a tight budget.

It’s important to note that MSA Plans have a high deductible that must be met before the plan begins to cover healthcare expenses. This means that you will be responsible for paying for your healthcare expenses until you meet the deductible, which can be a significant expense for those with high healthcare needs.
