Annuity ... from the medieval Latin "Annuitas," meaning "yearly payment." An annuity is an agreement between an individual and an insurance company.

senior care package: Family Health Care Facts about Medicaid: Michigan "Health Care" "Medical Insurance" "Hospital Coverage" - 08/31/08 06:35 AM
About MedicaidThe Medicaid program provides medical benefits to people who are financially needy. This program is not primarily a program for people who are elderly.
