My parents have used up all retirement funds and S.S. isn't covering all of their bills. They have Medicare & qualify for financial assistance through our hospital, so is it safe to cancel their expensive supplemental health coverage? I am not financially able to keep contributing as it hurts our finances. I was wondering would it be safe to cancel their supplemental health coverage shich is expensive. They have medicare and qualify for financial assistance through our hospital. This would pay for their meds and food. Even with partd some scrips are 40.00 or more a month.
