The bad news for seniors who suffer from high cholesterol is that high cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
The good news for seniors with high cholesterol is that high cholesterol can be lowered, reducing risk of heart disease and stroke. And, some more good news for Arizona seniors is that ACCESSMed Foundation can help them take advantage of Medicare and Medicaid high cholesterol health insurance options.
Chronic Special Needs health insurance is available for seniors, and other Medicare eligible individuals, who have been diagnosed with high cholesterol by a licensed medical practitioner. Subject to the plans that are available in your county, the cost can vary from no cost (for AHCCCS Medicaid eligible seniors) to low cost (for seniors who have too much income to qualify for AHCCCS Medicaid but are nonetheless living on a limited income).
For seniors who have both Medicare and AHCCCS Medicaid, most of the costs of participating in a Medicare Chronic Special Needs plan will be covered by federal and state governments. For seniors who do not qualify for AHCCCS Medicaid, the cost will depend on the Medicare Advantage plan selected.
