Storyboard Text

  • Medicare allows for free or discounted healthcare to anyone 65 or older. Someone with Medicare only has to pay a small copay for the insurance.
  • In 1966 the federal government introduced medicare as a way to help the elderly.
  • Here's a story of how medicare helped a couple get by when tragedy struck. This is how Medicare helped an elderly couple avoid disaster.
  • Here are the characters and the story involved.
  • Stan White is a 73 year old retired carpenter who just enjoys spending time with his wife. 
  • Martha White is a 71 year old housewife with not much to do except look after her husband.
  • Later on Stan fell down the stairs breaking his hip in the process. Stan would need a replacement that the couple couldn't afford without health insurance.
  • Because Stan paid into the system he was able to apply for medicare and he only had to pay a fraction of what he would have had to pay without it.
  • Soon Stan was getting used to walking with his new hip.
  • Luckily the family had enough saved up to get back on their feet after the replacement.
  • To improve their quality of life the family continued to live life the same but, with more cation involved so this couldnt happen again.
