Health Care Benefits

Medicare Pilot Program

Benefits? Benefits can include medically necessary services that traditional Medicare does not cover. For example: indoor home assistance, snow removal, athletic club fees, and mileage reimbursement for out of area medical travel. Benefits apply for all health conditions, not just asbestos related diseases. Benefits do not include assistance with insurance co-pays, deductibles or expenses that traditional Medicare would pay a portion of.

Cost? Free
Considerations? All services provided by Medicare (including Pilot services) may be subject to repayment out of your legal settlement if involved.
