I'm about to turn 65, and I'm realizing that even with Medicare, my health care costs are going to be hard to afford. Can I get any help?
Maybe. It depends on how much you make each year. How much money you have in bank accounts and stocks is also considered. If your income is below a certain level, you may be eligible for one or more Medicare Savings plans in your state.
There are also savings plans to help pay deductibles, coinsurance, and copays.
