Men More Prepared than Women for Healthcare Upon Turning 65

Men are more prepared than women for their healthcare upon turning 65, according to a survey conducted by PrescibeWellness, a cloud-based services company that serves the healthcare industry.

The survey also discovered 48 percent of Americans choose their senior healthcare plan before they turn 65, while 29 percent decide on their 65th birthday. 8 percent wait until after they turn 65. 14 percent don’t act until they receive a reminder.
