The article focuses on the possible benefits of a Medicare Medical Savings Account plan available to Medicare beneficiaries in the U.S. The health insurance policy combines a high-deductible plan with a medical savings account. Medicare, via the private company selling the policy, will cover a big portion of the deductible, with cash up front. Whatever money the policyholder does not spend will stay in the account earning interest, tax free.
