How Can I Save More Money On Health Care Premiums?

Medigap (doctor and hospital) plans have gone UP! Also, if you are on a Group Retirement Plan, you may be paying an extremely high premium for the same benefits as those on Medicare Plans.  Don’t waste your money paying more for the SAME benefits! Tell us you need prices for the Medigap “Plan N” in your state.

We have already saved hundreds of thousands of dollars to seniors all across America who realized that staying on the same Medicare Supplement costs too much after years of increases.  RIGHT NOW, there are guaranteed issue Plan N Medicare Supplements!  This means no health questions asked.  Usually, you can’t change Medigap plans this easily and this may not last, so check it out.

Why spend time trying to save on your medications if you are spending too much on your doctor and hospital care?

Everybody is talking about using COMMON SENSE these days, so get a Medigap cost comparison today!

6 Foods You Didn’t Know Were Good For You

If you are like me and need to lose a few pounds, keep your blood pressure and cholesterol in check and stay in shape, you feel pressure to know what to eat and what NOT to eat to maximize your health.  There is so much information out there these days (and yes I am adding to it) it can become confusing.

I don’t know if any of you read Bottom Line , but it is a very good periodical you can get by going to BottomLineSecrets.com/gifts and subscribe.  There is all kinds of info about health, insurance, investments and  relationship advice, really just about everything! My grandmother has made sure I get a new subscription every year for a long time now.

Here is a list of foods we have been told are not good for us, but really can be healthy.

1. Iceberg Lettuce: Just because it is not dark green does not mean it has no nutrient value.  Iceberg contains lutein and zeaxanthin.  These are carotenoids that reduce the risk for cataracts and age-related macular  degeneration leading to blindness in older adults.  My Dad had this and really suffered.

2. Watermelon: Although watermelon is sweet, it contains 40% more lycopene than fresh tomatoes.  It may be helpful to let you know that canned tomatoes have much more of the cancer fighting lycopene than fresh ones do.
