Coastal Medicare Connection May 2018

May Edition of the
Coastal Medicare Connection

Look for Savings and Senior Discounts where you might not have guessed!

CPAP machines (used for Sleep Apnea and can be life saving) typically run on electricity all night. I recently learned there is a program available through most Electric/Utility companies that offsets the energy used by a CPAP machine. In my friend’s case, an extra 495 kilowatt hours per month at the lowest Tier/Rate were added for his needs. This cut his electric bill in half! I did call our local Southern Orange County SDGE to inquire, and I was able to confirm that this is not an income-based discount plan. It is assistance for anyone who uses an Electrical Medical Device. Approval requires a form filled out and signed from your doctor for proof of the need. Call your local electric company and inquire.

Now for some of the fun stuff!

Senior discounts do vary by location. Before heading out, call your local store to ask about their discounts for seniors.
