Answer . I just signed my father up for the dental plan through AARP. It's ~ $550 a year for insurance coverage but it's a good plan. www.aarp.com. Answer . AARP is goo…d. Also, many of the companies that offer Medicare Supplements also offer Senior Dental Plans. Here in California Blue Cross has a good plan.. To find companies in your state that provide dental insurance or dental discount plans, go to the National Association of Dental Plans site (www.nadp.org) which has a directory of companies that offer dental insurance . The directory can be searched by state and you can select "individual" and get the list of just those companies that provide individual dental insurance in your state. The listing also tells you if the company provides dental HMO, dental PPO, dental indemnity (traditional insurance without a network) or a discount plan (not insurance but a discount off the dentist's fees who are part of the discount network).
Answer Probably, burial expenses, estate planning, taxes, etc for more info.
This refers to insurance plans, called "Advantage Private-Fee-for-Service" plans, that one buys to accompany their Medicare since Medicare does not cover all costs (neit…her do these insurance plans). Many of these Advantage PFFS plans have a zero premium, hence they are called "no cost". They can offer a zero premium because this type of plan receives compensation from Medicare directly to provide coverage; in essence, Medicare is paying the monthly premium rather than the participant.
Hospital insurance is a contract where, in return for your making premium payments, the insurance company agrees to pay part or all of your hospital expenses. Plans differ con…siderably regarding what and how much they will cover. It might cover only a fixed percentage of your bill or might have a fixed upper limit on coverage. A plan might have coverage for an ambulance trip to get you to the hospital. It will typically cover costs such as your room, medication, supplies, equipment used and hospital employees' services. It typically will not cover costs of services of non-employees. So you could expect it to pay for the services of a doctor who is employed by the hospital but not the services of a doctor who is in private practice. It typically will not cover costs of services not directly provided by the hospital, such as specialized therapy or specialized equipment. Hospital insurance should not be confused with comprehensive medical insurance, which covers medical expenses both in and out of the hospital.

If an elderly person decides to begin buying life insurance, it will cost much more on average than for a young person.
