My social security check includes a deduction of $134

Customer Question
My social security check...

My social security check includes a deduction of $134 monthly for "Medicare for Medicare medical insurance. I also have Aetna Medicare NJ Silver Plan which costs me $65 monthly. Must I pay both charges? THANK YOU

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I think I might be paying twice for medicare coverage......or is the Aetna plan a supplement to government Medicare coverage?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

No. I have no major illnesses or problems.

HI. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

The Medicare deduction from your social security check is the main Medicare insurance. It pays about 80% of your medical expenses. The Aetna Medicare plan is the supplemental plan, it pays the remaining 20% your regular Medicare does not cover. You need to have regular Medicare to qualify for supplemental.
