Our survey showed that seniors ages 65+ have unique health care concerns. At the top of the list? Health care costs.
Key survey findings:
- Half of seniors say unexpected hospitalizations are their biggest cost-related health concern.
- Management of chronic disease becomes a greater focus among seniors, but similar to those ages 25-64, they define health and wellness as more than just avoiding illness: it's physical, emotional, mental and financial.
- 82% of seniors already have or would like to have supplemental Medicare coverage like a Medicare Advantage or Medigap plan.
- 91% of seniors view overall cost as a key factor in choosing a health plan.
