As a working adult preparing for retirement in Indiana, you can rely on Medicare once you stop working. Medicare is an age-based benefits program available for retired adults. Although there are many limits to Medicare, supplemental insurance for prescriptions can help older adults more fully cover their medical expenses.
For some adults, including those who need to live in a nursing home or require a nurse at their house a few times a week, Medicare benefits won’t pay for the treatment that they need. Only Medicaid will cover those more extensive treatment requirements, and not everyone in Indiana can qualify for Medicaid.

Medicaid eligibility for many older adults requires strategic planning and implementation of the creation of documents to assist in the process.
