Question: My dad is 63 and early retiring. is there a share a cost out there for him. he is a diabetic and needs insurance? please help..

Answer:

As a senior citizen your father may be eligible for financial assistance with his health care costs. Medicare, Medigap policies, AHCCCS, or veterans’ benefits may help cover his medical and long-term care expenses. The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) web site explains eligibility requirements for AHCCCS and Medicare, as well as other medical assistance programs.

You may also want to visit the Health-e-Arizona website where a person can apply for Arizona public benefits online.

Additionally, you may want to look at the Health Care section and the Resources for Seniors section of the LawForSeniors.org website.
