What are the different types of Medicare programs?
 
04:04
There are several different types of Medicare plans. The choices vary from the services covered to the type of administrators who manage the plan. People who are eligible for Medicare commonly choose the Original Medicare Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan. The Original Medicare Plan is a fee-for-service plan managed by the federal government. Most people on the Original Medicare Plan have a combination of what is referred to as Part A and Part B benefits. Additionally, recipients of Original Medicare have the option of adding what's called a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (or Medicare Part D plan) and purchasing a Medigap or supplemental policy. Medicare Advantage plans are an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) or PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) that can provide Parts A, B and D coverage. Let's discuss the most common plans: Medicare Part A: Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital care. Medicare Part A is offered to those who paid Medicare taxes while working. For most, it is not necessary to pay a monthly premium for the coverage. Others who have not paid Medicare taxes can buy Part A coverage. Medicare Part A is available for medically necessary blood, home health services, hospice care, hospital stays and skilled nursing facility care when recipients meet certain conditions. Medicare Part B: Medicare Part B is optional and requires that people who enroll pay a monthly premium. Additionally, co-payments and deductibles may apply to these services. Medicare Part B covers services that Medicare Part A does not, such as outpatient care, doctors' services and other medical services. Medicare Part B covers services that are medically necessary and some preventive services. Part C -- Medicare Advantage Plans: Medicare Advantage Plans are offered by private companies and approved by Medicare. Members of Part C plans are still on Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans provide the same coverage as Part A and Part B. Many also provide extra benefits and Part D prescription drug coverage. Types of the Medicare Advantage Plan include: Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plans, Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO) Plans, Private Fee for Service Plans (PFFS), Special Needs Plans and Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSA) Plans. Members of Medicare Advantage Plans do not need Medigap or supplemental insurance and in most cases cannot be enrolled in Medicare Part D. Part D -- Prescription Drug Coverage: Medicare Part D offers prescription drug plans from private companies that are approved by Medicare. Prescription Drug Coverage is optional and members who wish to receive the benefits must pay a monthly premium. Prescription Drug Coverage is available through Medicare Part D or through private insurers offering Medicare Advantage Plans. Different plans have different options based on cost, drug coverage and convenience. Medigap Policy or Medicare Supplemental Insurance: A Medigap policy, or Medicare Supplemental Insurance, is health insurance sold by private companies to fill in the gaps of the Original Medicare Plan. Medigap policies only apply to individuals receiving benefits from Original Medicare Plans (Parts A and B). These individuals pay the private insurance company a monthly premium for their Medigap policy in addition to the monthly Part B premium that they pay to Medicare. Twelve plans, subject to federal and state laws, are available.

FAQ Friday: Why we Recommend a Medicare Supplement Plan
 
05:18
We recommend Medicare Supplements (Medigap) to 95% of our clients and I will explain why. In order to better understand why, I will break down the two different types of plans that someone on Medicare can choose. The two options are a Medicare Advantage plan or a Medicare Supplement plan. Listed below is a brief, generic explanation of Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Supplement plans: Medicare Advantage Plan • It is not a Supplement, it is a private company that provides a health plan that you will use instead of using your traditional Medicare. So, you replace your Medicare. • $0 - $100 premium depending on the plan’s location. The $134 Medicare Part B premium is no longer paid to Medicare but to the private insurance company. • Deductibles and copays up to your yearly maximum. Depending on the plan, an average of $3000 - $6000 maximum out of pocket for the year. • Networks of doctors and hospitals for HMO plans. PPO will offer out-of-network coverage but at an additional cost. • Requires referrals and pre-approvals • Includes prescription drug coverage • Depending on the area, some plans include additional benefits that Medicare does not cover such as dental, vision or gym memberships. Medicare Supplement Plan • Keep your Medicare. Medicare Supplements work with your Medicare. Medicare remains primary and the Supplement would be secondary. • No networks. As long as the doctor or hospital accepts Original Medicare they have to accept a Medicare Supplement regardless if they accept the carrier or not. • No referrals or pre-approvals • Additional monthly premium • Covers the 20% that Medicare does not cover without surprises. As long as Medicare covers the service, the Supplement will cover it. Now that I’ve explained the two plans, there are two reasons why 95% of our clients are choosing Medicare Supplements and why I prefer them to Medicare Advantage plans. The major reason is if you don’t get a Medicare Supplement plan when you first turn 65, you will have to medically qualify to upgrade to a Medicare Supplement. For example: if you choose an Advantage plan because you’re attracted to the low premiums and the additional benefits (dental, vision etc.) and you are hit with a big diagnosis (COPD, cancer, heart disease etc.) that is going to cost you that maximum out-of-pocket, you might be stuck with that Advantage plan and you can no longer afford those copays and deductibles. That is the biggest risk for anyone choosing a Medicare Advantage plan. The second reason is that it just makes sense to me. It is one of the few insurance plans that you are guaranteed to get more benefits then the premium you pay in. Let me explain. Let’s look at a 20-year period of time and your Medicare Supplement plan costs you $1,500 a year. Over a 20-year period of time you will pay in $30,000 to your Medicare Supplement plan in premiums. I can guarantee you that you will spend more than $30,000 on your healthcare in 20 years.

Medicare Mini-Course Part 3: Types Of Medicare Advantage Plans
 
06:51
Watch Medicare Mini-Course Part Four: http://medicare-mini-course.com/page/5/ Medicare Mini-Course Part Three addresses the types of Medicare Advantage Plans. The type of Medicare Advantage Plan that you join will have an impact on how you use your plan and how much you'll pay for services. The differences in types of Advantage Plans typically has to do with the type of provider network. But there are also plans that are meant for specific populations as well. Networks include: Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), Health Maintenance Organization - Point of Service (HMO-POS) and Private Fee-for_Service Plan (PFFS). There are also Special Needs Plans (SNPs). These Special Needs Medicare Advantage Plans are intended for people who share a specific set of circumstances. For instance, there are Special Needs Plans for people with specific chronic illnesses, people confined to an institution (like a nursing home) and people who are dual-eligible. Medicare dual-eligibility is met when a beneficiary is enrolled both in Medicare and their State's Medicaid program.

Medicare Supplements and Pre Existing Conditions - Must Watch!
 
07:23
https://www.abtinsuranceagency.com | (888) 465-9728 Do Medigap Plans cover pre existing conditions? Many people think that Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act did away with all pre existing condition exclusions. And yes, for folks under 65 purchasing individual qualified health plans, there are no longer any health questions or pre existing condition clauses. However, this does not impact Medicare, or Medicare Supplement Plans. Original Medicare is made up of Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (medical insurance). Medicare Supplement Plans are insurance purchased through private insurance companies to fill in the “gaps” in Parts A and B, and pay the out of pocket costs that Original Medicare doesn’t pay. Medicare Supplement Plans are medically underwritten, meaning the insurance company can ask you a series of health questions to determine if you qualify. Depending on your health, or your height and weight, they could charge you a higher premium, or deny you coverage all together. However, when you’re first getting on to Medicare you have a “Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment Period” – this is a time when you can get any Medigap Plan you’d like, with any company and you are guaranteed to be issued that policy and they can’t charge you a higher rate. This open enrollment period lasts up to 6 months after turning 65 or adding Medicare Part B, and it’s really the best time to buy a Medigap Plan since you’re guaranteed to be issued any plan you’d like. It’s a common misconception that folks think that the medigap open enrollment period is an annual thing, that every year they can switch their Medigap Plan if they want, with no health questions. But it the majority of states, that is not correct. After you’re initial Medicare Supplement Open enrollment period, you will have to answer health questions in order to qualify for a new or different medicare supplement plan. The Medicare Annual Election Period only applies to Part D Rx plans and Medicare Advantage Plans. What about pre existing condition waiting periods? This is from the CMS guide to choosing a Medigap policy: “While the insurance company can’t make you wait for your coverage to start, it may be able to make you wait for coverage related to a pre-existing condition. A pre-existing condition is a health problem you have before the date a new insurance policy starts. In some cases, the Medigap insurance company can refuse to cover your out-of-pocket costs for these pre-existing health problems for up to 6 months. This is called a “pre-existing condition waiting period.” After 6 months, the Medigap policy will cover the pre-existing condition. Coverage for a pre-existing condition can only be excluded if the condition was treated or diagnosed within 6 months before the coverage starts under the Medigap policy. This is called the “look-back period." Remember, for Medicare covered services, Original Medicare will still cover the condition, even if the Medigap policy won’t, but you’re responsible for the Medicare coinsurance or copayment. Creditable coverage If you have a pre-existing condition, you buy a Medigap policy during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period, and you’re replacing certain kinds of health coverage that count as “creditable coverage,” it’s possible to avoid or shorten waiting periods for pre-existing conditions. Prior creditable coverage is generally any other health coverage you recently had before applying for a Medigap policy. If you've had at least 6 months of continuous prior creditable coverage, the Medigap insurance company can’t make you wait before it covers your pre-existing conditions. There are many types of health care coverage that may count as creditable coverage for Medigap policies, but they'll only count if you didn’t have a break in coverage for more than 63 days." So, essentially, as long as you’ve had continuous coverage prior to enrollment, the Medigap Plan cannot place any waiting periods on your pre existing conditions.For folks that are over 65 and they’re looking to save money by switching from one Medigap insurer to another – once you go through the medical underwriting and you’re approved, as long as you’ve had continuous coverage through your old Medigap plan, the new plan cannot place any waiting periods on your pre existing conditions.

Medicare Supplement Plan G or Plan N
 
03:13
Which plan is best for you, Plan G or Plan N? Stay tuned... My Website: http://www.medicarescreenshare.com Contact Me: MedicareScreenShare@gmail.com Medicare supplement Plan G and Plan N are a great value in comparison to Plan F, but which is best for you. Well it depends… you see when I present these two options to my prospective clients I end up having half of them picking Plan G and the other half choosing Plan N. Now Both of these plan cover the majority of the deductibles and copays of medicare. Plan G covers all the gaps in original medicare except for the $183 Part B Deducible. So Basically your max out of pocket with a Plan G in 2017 would be $183. Plan N also has the same $183.00 Part B deductible that you would need to pay out of your own pocket, but it also has two more gaps in coverage compared to Plan G. With Plan N you would also need to Pay a $20 copay for doctor visits, and a $50 copay for emergency room visits. Plan N also does not cover Part B excess charges, so if you doctor does not take medicare assignment then they can charge you up to 15% more then what medicare is willing to pay for a test or procedure. Now depending on where you live a Plan N can be anywhere between $150 to $250 less expensive per year than a Plan G. So I usually ask prospective client this simple question to see if they would be interested in Plan N… I ask them if they could save $200 a year would they be willing to pay $20 to see there doctor and $50 to go to the emergency room? If they would rather not pay those copay than Plan G would be the best option, but if they say that they would rather save the $200 then I make sure they understand how medicare assignment works, and if they still think Plan N is for them then I recommend they go with Plan N… So if your deciding between Plan G and Plan N the first thing you need to calculate is the yearly difference between the two. Then just ask yourself if the savings your getting with Plan N is worth the two copays and the excess charges. If the savings is not then go with Plan G, but if the savings is worth it then go ahead and enroll into Plan N. Thanks for watching this quick video and if you need some help deciding between different Medicare Supplement plans then just shoot me a email or give me a call. My information is in the description below this video… Now if you want to get way more in depth with all the different options you have make sure to check out my video about all the different plan types as soon as this video ends.

Medicare Supplement Plan N  - Medigap Plan N Review Video
 
06:20
Why is Medicare supplement plan N the "forgotten" plan? Click SHOW MORE to see time stamps. Few Medicare beneficiaries hear about the G plan. Fewer still even know Medigap plan N exists. The 2018 Georgia Medicare Minute video explains. Are you turning 65? Enrolling in Medicare? How does Medicare work? Watch our videos. https://www.youtube.com/c/GeorgiaMedicarePlans Shop 2018 Medicare supplement plan rates. Part A and Part B required. Time Stamp 0:35 Talk to an agent that has plan N 1:40 The copay 2:10 The $20 chemotherapy treatment? Nope. 2:46 Excess charges 4:15 Mayo Clinic and excess charges Why don't agents talk about N? The agent you are working with does not understand how plan N works and is afraid you might ask a question they can't answer. Plan N has lower premiums than F or G. Medicare supplement plan N does not pay your Medicare Part B premium. The N plan has a doctor visit copay that cannot exceed $20. Medigap plan N also requires you to pay a $50 for ER visits. And the most misunderstood portion of N. Excess charges are not covered. Do you know how simple it is to avoid Medicare excess charges? Call 1-800-MEDICARE before seeing a Medicare provider. Consider this. About 96% of Medicare providers accept the assignment. The ones that accept assignment are not allowed to bill excess charges. The rest are limited by Medicare as to how much they can collect. I enrolled in Medicare in September, 2015. Cancer is a word I know too well. My mothers twin sister and older sister died of cancer. My wife's father and mother died because of cancer. All 5 of my father-in-laws siblings died of cancer. Two of my mother-in-laws siblings died of cancer. I have seen what cancer can do to the human body and the misery that accompanies this dread illness. If you are diagnosed with cancer, the last thing on your mind should not be "How will I pay for my treatment?" I know how quickly things can change. When my health changes I want to control the direction of my care. Insurance carriers are not going to give me a list of doctors and tell me this year I can only use these, and next year the list may change. I am enrolled in original Medicare plus Medigap plan N. In 2018 most Advantage plans issued in Georgia limit your out of pocket for approved in network health care expenses to $6700. The American Cancer Society tells us that more than half the 1.4 million new cancer diagnoses occur in people age 65 and older. Roughly 20% of retiree deaths are a result of cancer. Medicare pays for almost half of the $74 billion spent on cancer treatment. The elderly account for 70% of cancer deaths each year. Some cancer centers, such as Mayo Clinic and MD Anderson do not participate in Medicare Advantage plans. Not all cancer responds to chemotherapy, but 80% of cancers are treated with chemo. Those treatments occur in an outpatient setting and are covered under Medicare Part B. Chemotherapy drugs administered in a doctor's office or clinic normally fall under Part B. Medication from a retail pharmacy or by mail fall under your PDP. This is why most of us chose a Medicare supplement plan in 2018. Bob Vineyard, independent Medicare insurance broker in Georgia, can explain your Georgia Medicare insurance options and will allow you to decide. We represent several carriers including Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Humana and more. According to the Mayo clinic, "new cancer treatments are routinely priced at over $100,000 per year of treatment." Both Medigap and Advantage plans cover the same types of medical treatment, but what you pay out of pocket for your care, and where you receive your care, is very different. Advantage plans are managed care plans. Some are PPO, some are HMO. In 2018 about half the plans are HMO with the balance being PPO. If you receive non-emergency out of network care under a PPO you may have higher copay's and deductibles. Your max OOP may also be higher. Some plans do not cap out of network charges. Non-emergency out of network care charges may be denied if you have an HMO. Medicare Part B is for outpatient health care treatment. Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most major expenses will fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses. Original Medicare stand alone has no cap on your out of pocket expenses. You pay until you run out of money, get well or die.

Medicare Advantage - 5 Things To Know About Advantage Plans Before You Enroll
 
07:29
Call (888) 310-0376 to Compare All Medicare Advantage Plans in Your State. Get Instant Access http://free-mini-course.com I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Advantage before you enroll. It doesn't make sense to even compare Medicare Advantage plans until you know how it works, who is eligible and when you can enroll in a plan. As a senior health insurance option, Advantage plans seem to be shrouded in confusion. One reason is because unlike Medicare supplemental insurance, plans are not standardized which makes shopping for a plan more difficult. If you would like to get the facts about Medicare Advantage vs Medicare supplement insurance, check out my Free 8 Part Video Mini-Course on Medicare Plans. Get Instant Access Absolutely Free! http://free-mini-course.com The first thing you need to know is that an Advantage plan is not a Medicare supplement. So what is Medicare Advantage? The Medicare and You Handbook states that it is a Medicare health plan like a PPO or HMO and is sometimes referred to as Part C. Plans are offered by Private insurance companies and you are still enrolled in Medicare. You will receive all Part A and Part B benefits from the Medicare Advantage Plan and drug coverage is often included. The second thing you should know is how plans work. And that begins with knowing whether or not you are eligible to enroll in a plan. To be eligible, you must: Have Medicare Parts A and B Live in the plan's service area Not have end-stage renal disease All Advantage plans have premiums if it is $0 per month. Plans shouldn't be referred to as a free Medicare Advantage plan. Premiums are normally lower than premiums for Medicare supplements. There are 6 types of Advantage plans and you will normally be subject to a provider network. It is paramount to be certain your providers are included. Check for your preferred specialists, ancillary facilities and hospitals in addition to your primary provider. If you are enrolling in a plan with drug coverage, be sure all your drugs are included in the plan's formulary. Many people search for Medicare health plans that include extra benefits and are often disappointed when they find Medicare supplements to be lacking. Medicare Advantage plans often include extra benefits not found in original Medicare. They may include: Dental Vision Hearing Silver Sneakers Gym membership Transportation to and from medical appointments Third. You need to be aware of when you can pursue Medicare Advantage enrollment. There are 3 types of enrollment periods. When you first become eligible you have a 7 month window to submit an application. Next, during the Medicare Advantage Annual Election period you can switch, drop or enroll in a plan. And you may have a Special Enrollment Period available if your circumstances have changed. The fourth thing you need to understand is Medicare Advantage plans are not standardized. Plans are offered County by County and premiums, provider networks, benefits and cost sharing amounts vary widely between plans. When you compare Advantage plans there are 3 plan documents that are very important to research and understand. The Summary of Benefits goes into much greater detail than the enrollment brochure. It lists all plan benefits and what each will require in deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance. The Provider Directory should be you companion until you locate all your providers or find some you are willing to live with. The Part D drug formulary should include all your required medications. Enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan that does not include all your drugs can wipe out any savings you may have had over choosing another type of Medicare health plan. The fifth thing you need to be aware of is how any cuts to Medicare Advantage will affect you. Understand that a lot of what you hear is politically motivated talking points designed to instigate fear. Although given the current political climate future funding for the Medicare Advantage program is tentative at best. If you feel as though enrolling in an Advantage plan is your best option, you should do it. If there are Medicare Advantage cuts in the future and you lose your plan you may qualify for Guaranteed Issue Rights to buy a supplement, even if you have preexisting conditions. Also, keep in mind that everyone wants to enroll in the best Medicare Advantage plan. And that will be the one that aligns with your specific set of circumstances.

Medicare Cost Plan - Medicare Cost Plan Review

What are medicare cost plans – What is a Medicare cost plan? 1-800-566-1002 http://www.RetireSharp.com . What are the best types of Medicare cost plans for retirement and learn how you can avoid the most common mistakes that individuals have made when looking to purchase a Medicare cost plan. How To Choose Medicare Supplement Plan and Medicare cost plan? When it comes to buying a Medicare cost plan, many agents and Medicare recipients view the Medicare Supplement Plan F as the "Cadillac of Medicare Supplement plans." Now before we examine the Medicare Supplement let's make sure that you understand some basic information about the insurance product. Medicare, a government run health program helps provide health insurance coverage for people 65 and older as well as some who are under 65 and disabled. Medicare by itself does not provide adequate health insurance coverage, there are many gaps in coverage where a recipient would be responsible for payment. A Medicare cost plan is a health insurance plan that helps fill in the gaps where Medicare doesn't cover, which is why it is also called Medigap Insurance. The three biggest factors to look at are their financial situation, health history, and their personal opinions on health care.'' Financial Situation: We first make sure our client is able to afford a Medicare Supplement. Plan F costs usually start at $95 and goes up from there for a standard Plan F. The monthly premium for a Supplement Plans will vary by the area you live in, the insurance company you select, your age, whether or not you smoke, and sometimes by underwriting guidelines. You must also plan on choosing a Medicare Prescription Drug plan (avg. cost around $40-70/month and continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium). The cost of the plan will go up over time. If you are able to afford a Supplement plan you should buy one now, preferably when you first are eligible for Medicare and you no longer have any other creditable health coverage. When you are first eligible for a Medicare S you are not required to go through underwriting, the cost is lower, and your acceptance is guaranteed. The longer you wait the more you risk the chance of not being able to afford a plan or qualify for one. Although higher in price than a Medicare Advantage plan, the health insurance coverage provided by the Medicare Supplement is superior if you get Medicare Supplement Plan F. Your Personal Choice: Again a Medicare Supplement comes out on top when you look at your freedom to choose. Is it important to you to have the ability to go to any hospital or doctor you want for any procedure, or would it be acceptable to you to pay significantly less on your health care and have a large network to choose your hospital and doctor from?" A Medicare cost plan, for the most part, gives you the freedom to use any hospital or doctor you wish which is attractive to many recipients. Most Medicare Advantage plans require you to receive services from an in-network provider and may require a referral from your Primary Care Physician before you may see an in-network specialist. A Medicare Supplement is the "Cadillac" of Medicare health plans because of its outstanding health coverage (bases on Medicare Supplement Plan F ), predictable costs, and the freedom to choose almost any doctor, specialist, and hospital that you need or want.

Medicare and you 2018 introduces simple assessment of current healthcare packages and comparison tools to help you make the most out of your coverage. Ensure the information you receive to make a health insurance decision is personalized. This includes eligibility for new Medicare subscribers and investing in the right amount of cover. Things you will find in Medicare and You 2018 Medicare has introduced a new card system released between April 2018 and 2019 to heighten security by removing social security numbers. The initiative makes it easier to use your medical cover while protecting personal information. The 2 major plans for Medicare cover include: Option 1 – Standard Medicare and Option 2 - Medicare Advantage (Part C) The original Medicare or Part A and B provides hospital cover and general medical insurance. You are eligible to add prescription coverage for essential medicines (Part D) or Medigap protection assisting with cash payments. Medicare Advantage will incorporate plans A, B, and D and entails coverage such as HMOs or PPOs. You automatically receive the benefits provided in Part A (hospital cover), Part B (medical insurance), and Part D (protection for prescription drugs). The Part D program will include most types of prescriptions, but additional insurance may be sought, by joining an independent Part D plan. Choice of Medical Coverage Standard/Basic Medicare: Part A and B cover will not provide set funds for out of pocket expenses annually. To ensure you are protected, supplemental insurance must be purchased. The Medicare cover delivers hospital insurance. This involves clinical stay and supplies, and doctor consultations in stipulated medical settings. Part A and Part B provide detailed coverage. To avoid the expense of out of pocket costs, supplement the Original Medicare by purchasing additional cover. A Medigap policy is the best choice. This policy will not cover prescription drugs. You will have to purchase additional prescription drug cover under Part D, to receive adequate insurance for prescribed medication. Only Medicare approved doctors can be sought under the Medicare Original Plan. Medicare Advantage: All covered recipients receive an annual limit on cash expenditure. Out of pocket expenses are limited, but once this limit is reached, the services covered in your policy are free of charge. It covers the Parts A, B and D and all services offered through an Original Medicare Plan. Advantage will include dental, auditory and vision cover. This program eliminates the need for a Medigap plan. The Advantage policy is considered more economical if you require supplementary insurance. Most of these plans will provide coverage for prescription pills. When selecting hospital care and doctors, ensure they are Medicare approved. Learn of coverage outside of your network to see practitioners and clinics of your choosing. Medicare Cover The Medicare insurance plans are only available for U.S. citizens. To determine the type of plan you need and the quality of cover provided, speak to a Medicare representative. Remain aware of important enrolment dates. Changes to a Medical insurance and prescription plan can be made from the 15 October to December 7. Your new policy will take effect from January 2018.

How Does Medicare Part C Work?
 
01:22
A question we hear often from customers is, what does Medicare Part C cover? Medicare Part C is typically referred to as Medicare Advantage. These plans are offered by private insurance companies that contract with Medicare as an alternative way to get your Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). Many Medicare Advantage plans also include Medicare Part D. In addition to your Part B premium, some plans – but not all - require an additional monthly premium for the Medicare Advantage plan's medical and prescription drug coverage. Please keep in mind that not all plan types are available in every area. The benefits on these plans can change from year to year, so you have the option to change your Medicare coverage every year during Medicare’s Annual Election Period – or AEP. Medicare’s Annual Election Period runs from October 15 to December 7 each year. Medicare has neither reviewed nor endorsed this information. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Follow eHealth at: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eHealth Twitter: https://twitter.com/eHealth _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Medicare Advantage Plan And Medicare Supplement Policy - Can You Have Both?
 
03:05
Have you ever wondered about whether you could have a Medicare Advantage Plan and a Medicare Supplement policy? In this video I will address that topic and explain why having both types of Medicare Plans at the same time is not allowed . Get more Medicare answers at: http://affordablemedicareplan.com A subscriber had asked me whether he could have a Medicare Advantage Plan and a Medigap policy at the same time. To answer the question, here's a review of both Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplemental insurance. Medicare Advantage Plans (sometimes called Part C) are available from private insurance companies that are contracted with The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to provide and administer your Medicare benefits. Instead of being subject to the Medicare Part A deductible and the 20% coinsurance for Medicare-covered outpatient services, Advantage Plans can set their own out-of-pocket amounts. These are deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you agree to pay these amounts for covered benefits. A Medicare supplement is also offered by a private insurance company and is also known as Medigap. Medigap policies work in conjunction with original Medicare (rather than being another way to receive Medicare benefits) to pay a portion your out-of-pocket expenses, Medicare Part A deductible, Medicare Part B deductible and Part B coinsurance, etc. You cannot have a Medicare Advantage Plan and a Medicare supplement at the same time because a supplement will not pay any of the out-of-pocket expenses associated with a Medicare Advantage Plan.

Medicare Supplement Plan G vs F vs N (What's Changing?)
 
21:35
Medigap Plan G. I discuss what you need to know about Medicare supplement Plan G vs Plan F and Plan N. I also compare Medicare supplement Plan G vs Plan N and Plan F. I compare Medicare supplements (aka Medigap Plans) to help you make an informed decision about which Medicare supplement is best for you. For most people turning 65, Medicare supplement Plan G will offer the best value today. However, there are changes in the relationship between Medicare supplement Plan G and Medigap Plan F and Plan N that you should be aware of before you make a decision. In this video, I will show you these changes and discuss how they may impact your decision making as you decide if the Plan G Medicare supplement is right for you.

Plus a simple technique you can use to evaluate which plan is right for you.

This is for two reasons – first; because the previously popular plans Medicare supplement Plan F and Plan C are being phased out as of January 2020. Second, Medicare supplement Plan G is usually a lower premium AND a better value. Most people shopping for a Medigap Plan today find Medicare supplement Plan G as their best value. Let’s take a quick look at the Medicare supplement plans so you can see why: . In the column below the Plan letter you can see the percentage of insurance coverage offered by that plan. For example; Medigap Plan F show 100% coverage in each category all the way down. That means that Medicare supplement plan F covers 100% of all the co-pays and deductibles that you would normally have to pay with Medicare Part A (inpatient hospital coverage) and Medicare Part B (outpatient coverage). It’s a great plan and would be an easy decision for many people entering Medicare, except that it is being phased out in January 2020 and Plan G usually offers equal benefits for less money. Take a look -- Medicare supplement Plan G has all the same benefits except this row right here: Medicare Part B deductible. That is a calendar year annual deductible. It resets every January 01. It can change every year. In 2017 it’s just $183. We expect it to increase to $250 over the next five to seven years. That’s it. All you pay is the annual Medicare Part B annual deductible and your premium. Other than that, Medicare and your Medigap Plan G pay all your Medicare related in-patient and outpatient expenses. The math here is simple, if Plan G is $183 less in premiums per year, then it would be exactly equal to Plan G. You pay the $183 deductible out of pocket, then you have all the same benefits as a Plan F. However, Medicare Supplement Plan G is usually $300 to $400 a year less in premiums than a Medigap Plan F. That means you can pay the $183 Medicare part B deductible out of pocket and have money left over. That makes it a better value. People considering a Medigap Plan G often compare the price and benefits to a Medigap Plan N. Plan N usually cost much less than Plan G, but there is a catch! In fact, Medicare supplement Plan N can cost 25% to 35% less than a Medigap Plan G. However, Plan N has less coverage and an asterisks you need to be aware of. Just like with Medigap Plan G, with Medigap Plan N you pay that Medicare Part B deductible out of pocket. The asterisks indicate that you will also pay a small co-pay of up to $20 when you see a doctor, $50 for an emergency room visit. Medicare supplement Plan G is for those who want peace-of-mind. Once you have a Plan G you don’t have to worry about co-pays or excess charges or anything. You can see any doctor, whether they charge excess charges or not. You pay a little extra, but you have peace-of-mind that your healthcare is taken care of. for Part D drug plan info visit: http://www.medicare.gov Also visit : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medigap Get your Medicare Guide to supplements here: https://www.medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/02110-Medicare-Medigap.guide.pdf And your Medicare & You Guide here: https://www.medicare.gov/pubs/pdf/10050-Medicare-and-You.pdf #MedigapPlanG #MedicareSupplements #Medicare #MedigapSeminars #MatthewClaassen

Original Medicare is the Medicare parts A & B and D that we have detailed in previous videos. In this video we will talk about Medicare Advantage plans. In our next video of this series we will discuss Medicare Supplement or Medigap plans. You are only allowed a Medicare Supplement plan if you keep your Original Medicare. You cannot have a Medicare Supplement or Medigap plan and a Medicare Advantage plan at the same time. So, let’s talk about Medicare Advantage plans. 1. Medicare Advantage plans replace your Original Medicare. They are not supplements. They do not supplement or enhance your Medicare coverage, they replace it. (show book) When you choose a Medicare Advantage plan the benefits and appeals processes outlined in this guide are no longer relevant. You can throw this book away. Your benefits will be detailed in an “Evidence of Coverage” provided by the insurance company you choose to replace your Medicare, along with their “Annual Notice of Change”. You no longer need to show your doctor your red, white and blue Medicare card or Medicare number, you will have a new card provided to you by the insurance company. You can no longer appeal your benefits to Medicare. Medicare is out of the picture as far as your personal service in concerned. If you decide to appeal an insurance decision, you must appeal to the insurance company. 2. Medicare Advantage plans are typically HMOs or PPOs and on occasion a Private-Fee-for-Service plan. HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. We will talk more about both of those in a minute. What is important to understand is that Medicare Advantage plans are not standardized, they are regulated to meet a certain minimum coverage. That is an important concept, so let me explain further. Medicare Part A & B is standardized. Medicare Supplement plans are standardized. Everyone in those plans receives the exact same benefits, they can see the exact same doctors and should have the exact same experience. With Medicare Advantage plans, each plan has different benefits, different co-pays, and deductibles, covers different medical services and has a different network of doctors and hospitals. Everyone’s experience is different and depends on which plan they have chosen. In additional; all the benefits, co-pays, deductibles and the doctors and hospitals in the network can and will change each and every year. It will be your responsibility to keep up with the changes via their mandatory Annual Notice of Change. It’s your responsibility to study this annual notice and determine how the changes may impact your healthcare. Medicare Advantage plans are regulated to meet a certain minimum standard. That minimum standard dictates that they must be actuarially equivalent to Medicare Parts A and Part B. That’s an interesting term “actuarially equivalent”. What does that mean?

What's the difference between Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplements?
 
02:29
A question we hear a lot from our customers is, what’s the difference between Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement? Great question - Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) covers many health-care expenses, but it doesn't cover everything. Most of the care covered by Original Medicare is subject to copayments, deductibles and coinsurance that you as the enrollee are expected to pay. Needless to say, these costs can add up. Plus, Medicare Part A and Part B also doesn't cover things like routine vision and dental care, prescription drugs, or overseas emergency health coverage. If you only enroll in Original Medicare (Parts A & B), you're responsible for these costs. So, most people on Medicare choose to enroll in some form of private Medicare insurance to help them pay for their out-of-pocket costs that Original Medicare doesn’t pay. There are two types of Medicare plans on the market Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement (or Medigap) plans. Medicare Advantage plans combine your Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) into a private insurance policy, that also usually includes Part D coverage and often includes dental and vision as well. With a Medicare Supplement plan, you keep your Original Medicare coverage, but the Medicare Supplement pays a portion of the out-of-pocket costs that Medicare doesn’t pay. With Medicare Supplements you will still also need to enroll in a separate Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. A great benefit for Medicare Supplement plans is that there are no provider networks so you can see any doctor or hospital that accepts new Medicare patients. Overall, Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage plans have significant differences when it comes to costs, benefits, and how they work. So it’s a good idea to ask questions about both before deciding, which is right for you.

What are various parts of Medicare Part A, B, C, and D? Medicare Parts Explained!
 
03:29
please subscribe to our channel for more videos! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUT2dLC-nsm36IzOkemXRbA get your answers: https://insurancecenterhelpline.com/medicare Are you confused about Medicare Parts? Part A, B, C and D? Don’t panic. I’ll explain what all this alphabet means! There are four main “parts” of Medicare insurance: Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D. Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (medical insurance) together make up Original Medicare. Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, and Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) programs that let you get Medicare plans through private insurance companies that contract with Medicare. Let’s look at each part individually. Medicare Part A typically pays for your inpatient hospital expenses, hospice services, home health care, and care in a skilled nursing facility. You don’t have to pay extra for Part A if you have worked and paid Social Security taxes for at least 40 calendar quarters ( or 10 years); Medicare Part B typically covers most medically necessary doctors’ services, preventive care, durable medical equipment, hospital outpatient services, lab tests, x-rays, mental health care, and some home health and ambulance services. You pay a monthly premium for this coverage. Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) are private health plans These policies, must cover at least the same benefits covered under Medicare Part A and Part B; however, your costs may be different, and you may have extra benefits, such as coverage for prescription drugs or extra days in the hospital. If you want, you can choose to get your Medicare coverage through a Medicare Advantage Plan instead of Original Medicare. Some plans also cover Part D as part of your Medicare Advantage benefits package. You may pay a monthly premium for this coverage, in addition to your Part B premium. Part D is the part of Medicare that provides outpatient prescription drug coverage. Part D is provided only through private insurance companies that have contracts with the government — it is never provided directly by the government (like Original Medicare is). If you want Part D, it is very important to select Part D coverage that works with your Medicare health benefits. If you have Original Medicare, choose a stand-alone Part D plan (PDP). It is very important to choose a plan that covers your medications. Every Medicare Prescription Drug Plan has a formulary that lists the drugs it covers. A plan’s formulary may change at any time, so make sure to check it periodically. I hope this information was helpful!

How Medicare Supplemental Coverage Works While Traveling
 
10:25
Learn more about Medicare here: https://www.remedigap.com/ecourse/ https://www.facebook.com/Remedigap/ How Medicare Supplemental coverage works while traveling - Links noted in this video: CMS Publication: Medicare Coverage Outside United States https://www.medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/11037-Medicare-Coverage-Outside-United-Stat.pdf Medicare and You: Traveling Abroad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yq2WbpPK-9c This video is helpful for Medicare Beneficiaries who travel on vacation, travel by RV, travel by motorhome, or live part time in another state (snowbirds). If this applies to you, then you might be wondering how Medicare Supplemental coverage works while traveling. According to CMS as of January 2017 more than 515,000 Medicare providers actively receiving payments) and that large network is a real benefit to you while traveling. I’ll share with you all the details on how Medicare Supplemental coverage works while traveling in the United States, abroad, and how Medicare Supplement plan coverage differs from Medicare Advantage plans. And, make sure you read to the end of this post where I share tips on how to use your Part D drug plan while traveling. The great news about Medicare Supplement insurance is that it can travel with you across all 50 states and U.S. territories. So, all you have to remember is that a provider who accepts Medicare also accepts your Medicare Supplement plan...regardless of who your Medicare Supplement insurance company is. It’s not about the name of the Medicare Supplement insurance carrier, it’s about seeing providers in Medicare’s network. As long as the provider or facility accepts Medicare, your Medicare Supplement insurance company will pay the required costs associated with the Outline of Benefits for your Medigap plan. But can you use Medicare out of the country? Medicare is very limited in what it covers for foreign travel. And, in most cases, Medicare won’t pay for health care or supplies you get outside the United States and U.S. territories. However, there are 3 situations in which Medicare will cover health care services in a hospital setting located in Canada or Mexico. See the link at the top of this post that takes you to CMS’s four page publication that goes over those rules in detail. Medigap plans C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, M, and N pay 80% of the billed charges for certain medically necessary emergency care needs outside the U.S. after you meet a $250 deductible for the year. Keep in mind, these Medigap policies cover foreign travel emergency care if it begins during the first 60 days of your trip, and has a lifetime limit of $50k. Medicare Supplement Plans and Medigap plans are the same type of health coverage. But, Medicare supplement plans are not the same as Medicare advantage plans. They don't work the same while traveling. One reason is because MAPDs don’t use Medicare's vast network. Medicare Advantage Plans are HMOs and PPOs and have service area networks. Variables such as how long you travel, where you travel, and the kind of care you need will impact whether or not your care will be covered while traveling or living somewhere part time. And, as for foreign travel, some Medicare Advantage Plans cover emergency care outside the U.S. but, again, you have to check the plan benefits to see what costs and rules apply. Which is completely different than Medicare Supplement plans, where you don’t have to constantly check plan benefits or your provider network. As long as the provider accepts Medicare (in the U.S. and territories), you’re covered… and your Medigap plan F, Medigap Plan G, or Medigap Plan N will pay accordingly. This offers greater peace of mind and ease of use while traveling compared to MAPD. And, let me share with you an example of how Medicare's network really came in handy for your father in law. He was visiting us before traveling out of the country and the day he was leaving for his trip, he noticed a spot on his skin that was bothering him. He wanted to have it checked before his trip. However, he was at our house and nowhere near his dermatologist. But, since he had Medicare and A Medigap plan, he was able to visit a dermatologist near my house with no network issues. Now, if he had a Medicare Advantage Plan, he would have been out of the plan's service area, and wouldn't have in network coverage. And...since it wasn't an emergency, it definitely wouldn't have been covered once he left the country. Lastly, if you have a Part D plan or are planning to get one, make sure you choose a plan that has national coverage so you can get prescriptions filled while traveling. If you use Medicare’s Plan Finder Tool, keep an eye out for the little N that indicates National Coverage. And, if you choose a plan that only provides coverage at one retail location (like the AARP Walgreens plan), then keep that in mind if you know you’ll be traveling.

Medicare Tips: Investigate Medicare Supplement Plans
 
01:11
Some people on Medicare augment their basic Medicare coverage – also called Original Medicare (Parts A & B) with a Medicare Supplement plan. These plans are designed to cover the out-of-pocket costs for Medicare-approved services that Original Medicare does not pay. In most states there are 10 Medicare Supplement plan types: A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M and N Some plans are not available in all areas. Each plan type must provide the exact same MINIMUM level of supplemental coverage. For example, an F plan from one insurance company must provide the exact same MINIMUM level of coverage as an F plan from another insurer. After your first three months on Medicare Part B, Medicare Supplement plans are typically medically underwritten, which means your application could be declined. Talk to a licensed agent to be sure you qualify.

Medicare Part D - 5 Things To Know Before You Enroll in a Part D Plan
 
08:06
Call (888) 310-0376 to Compare all Medicare Part D Plans in Your State. Get Instant Access to my Medicare mini-course. Visit: http://medicare-mini-course.com In this video I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Part D before you enroll. There have been significant changes to the Part D program since its inception in 2006. Visit http://affordablemedicareplan.com and get access to hundreds of articles on Medicare Part D, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement insurance. There have been changes to enrollment periods, how premiums are calculated as well as adjustments to the Standard Benefit Model. Some things haven't changed such as who is eligible to join and how plans work. Here are 5 things you should know about the Medicare Part D program and Part D plans in particular. One. You need to know what Part D is and how it works. So what is Medicare Part D? Part D is optional prescription drug coverage for Medicare beneficiaries who are enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B. Although Part D is optional, you should enroll when you first become eligible or potentially be subject to the Part D penalty which will have an impact on what you pay for as long as you are enrolled in a plan. Part D is offered by private insurance companies and is not part of original Medicare. Plans are offered by service area and you must live in a service area to be eligible for a plan. You can get Part D in one of two ways; you can enroll in a stand-alone plan (PDP) or you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan that includes drug coverage. Plans are effective for one calendar year. Two. Understanding the terminology of Part D is important. Medicare Part D Premiums -- Premiums are paid monthly and have ranged in the low to mid $30 range for the past few years. Part D Deductible -- The deductible is the amount you may be required to pay prior to your plan paying a share of prescription drugs. Part D copayment / Coinsurance -- This is the amount you pay at the pharmacy. Drugs are place in tiers and normally a plan has four or five tiers. Initial Coverage Limit -- This amount is set annually by Medicare and will be the same for all plans. It is the amount both you and your plan will pay prior to you reaching the Part D coverage gap. Medicare Part D Donut Hole -- This is the coverage gap that you may enter if you exceed the initial coverage limit. Part D Catastrophic Coverage -- This phase is reached after you have spent a fixed amount in the Donut Hole, currently $4750. During this phase you will pay very small copayments or coinsurance amounts for your drugs. Third. You should understand the Medicare Part D enrollment periods. There are 3 types of Part D enrollment periods. When you first become eligible you have a seven month window to submit an application. If starts three months before the month you turn 65 or if you will receive Part D due to a disability it will start 3 months prior to your 25th month of disability. The Part D Annual Election Period is the time to compare Part D Plans because you are able to switch, drop or enroll in a plan. Part D Special Enrollment Periods are time that you can enroll in a plan, normally due to a change in your individual circumstances. Such as, moving from a plan's service area or losing other creditable drug coverage like from an employer or union (including (COBRA). If you live in a nursing home you also are entitled to a Special Enrollment Period. The 5 Star Special Enrollment Period allows you the opportunity to switch into or enroll in a 5 Star-rated plan once per year. Plans are rated from one to five stars by Medicare and are a reflection of the experience people who have been in enrolled in the plan have had. You are allowed to enroll between December 30th and November 8th. If you qualify for Medicare extra help you can change plans anytime. Fourth. You must know how to conduct a thorough comparison of Medicare Part D plans. You can see all available plans for your service area at the Medicare Plan Finder at medicare.gov. But don't choose a plan based on premium alone. There's a lot more to plan cost than the monthly premium. Start your search for the best plan by exploring the Medicare Part D formulary for each plan. The formulary is the list of drugs which are covered by a plan. There is no universal Part D formulary, each plan will be unique. Formularies are either Basic or Enhanced. Making sure all your drugs are covered is your number one goal. Also compare: Plan Deductibles Copayments and Coinsurance amounts Pharmacy Networks Part D Mail Order benefits Fifth. You should be aware that your Part D premium may not be what is published at medicare.gov. Premiums are now tied to your annual income. If you qualify for Medicare extra help, you may pay $0 premiums, but if you earn over $85,000 as an individual or over $170,000 filing jointly, you are going to pay more.

No nothing is free, this video http://youtu.be/-raLM3_egvY discusses the pro's and con's of Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicare Supplements (Medigap). With a Medicare Advantage Plan you lose the right of Medicare to go to any doctor or facility, you will have to stay in network or pay the costs completely out of pocket or at the very least, have a higher co-insurance.

Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Supplement, Which one is for me?
 
03:09
What is Medicare? Medicare is insurance offered to people that are 65 or older and to people that have certain disabilities. There are two parts to Medicare, Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. Medicare Part A is what you use when you enter the hospital or a Skilled Nursing Facility. Medicare Part B is what you will use for your medical and Doctor bills. How much does Medicare cost per month? Most people will only have to pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part B. The current Part B Premium for most people is $121.80 per month. What will I have to pay when I use Medicare? Medicare Part A: When you go to the hospital you will have to pay the first $1,288.00 for each benefit period. When you enter a Skilled Nursing Facility, you will have to pay $161.00 per day starting day 61. Medicare Part B: You will have to pay the first $166.00 per year for medical and Doctor bills, then Medicare will step in and pay 80% of your bills. Please note, that there is no max out of pocket for the 20% that you have to pay. What are my coverage options for Medicare? It may feel like you have a hundred different Medicare coverage options, however you really only have 2. All of those options fit into 1 of 2 types of coverages. Medicare Advantage Plan Medicare Supplement Plan (Also called a "Medigap Plan") Every option that you are reviewing online, or getting plan information fits into one of the above, it is either a Medicare Advantage Plan or a Medicare Supplement Plan. Understanding which type of coverage you want is the first step and it will make choosing your actual Medicare Plan much easier. What is a Medicare Advantage Plan? A Medicare Advantage Plan is not a Supplement Plan, it is a private alternative to Medicare. A Medicare Advantage Plan will not pay the bills that Medicare would normally pay, instead a Medicare Advantage Plan will charge you a different deductible, different copays and different co-insurance compared to Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plan Summary: Low monthly premium. (Sometimes advertised as $0.00 per month) You will usually have to pay a fee every time you use the plan. ($15.00 copay for PCP visit, $300.00 per day each day you are in the hospital, etc...) You have to go to certain Doctors, Hospitals and Providers. (HMO or PPO Network) You will have to get prior authorizations for some procedures. You will have to get referrals to go see a specialist. What is a Medicare Supplement Plan? A Medicare Supplement Plan will be the best coverage you have ever had in your life. If you go to the hospital your Medicare Supplement Plan will pay the $1,288.00 that Medicare does not pay. When you go to the Doctor, get lab work or even a surgery - Medicare will pay 80% and your Medicare Supplement Plan will pay the other 20%. With a Medicare Supplement Plan, you will pay more per month but you are paying for: Flexibility - You can go to any Doctor that accepts Medicare and you do not have to get prior authorizations for procedures. Predictability - You know that as long as you pay your monthly premium, You will rarely have a bill that you have to pay. (My favorite Medicare Supplement Plan is G. With Plan G, all you pay is the Part B Deductible) So which type of coverage is best for you? Ask yourself this question: "If I chose a Medicare Supplement Plan, and I pay $120.00 per month, and I have a good year with my health, let's say I didn't really use the Supplement Plan that much - Would I consider that $120.00 per month a waste of money or becausej I am 65 or older, and I am more likely to use my health insurance in the next 5 years compared to the last 5 years, the $120.00 per month is a cost of living?" Waste of money - If you chose a "waste of money", and you do mind being told what Doctors you can go too, then you are a "Medicare Advantage Plan person". Click here for a guide on how to choose the right Medicare Advantage Plan. Cost of living - If you chose "cost of living" then you are a "Medicare Supplement Plan person".

Tricare For Life: Do You Need Medigap too?
 
07:09
Tricare for Life is the supplemental insurance coverage for military retirees once they go on Medicare. To enroll in Tricare for Life, you need Part A and Part B. But the question I had, and asked many of my military retiree clients, is do they need a Medigap policy, Medicare Supplement is same thing, in addition? Man, oh man, just looking over Youtube and various blogs, it's hard to get a grasp of what I thought would be a simple quesiton: Do I need a Medicare Supplement if I have Tricare for Life? And then, I find USAA and they say "If you're eligible for TRICARE For Life, you don't need a Medicare supplement insurance policy or prescription drug plan." 5 hours of research, down the drain. Not sure why I just didn't start with USAA to begin with! But there you go. From the horsesmouth, USAA. If they are that specific in stating you don't need a Medigap policy, I'm very comfortable in knowing that now, for sure. Also, just to put a cherry on this cake, you don't need a Part D plan either. https://www.usaa.com/inet/pages/insurance_medicare_supplement_insurance_standard?showtab=thirdtab https://blog.medicaremadeclear.com/blog/bid/132860/how-do-tricare-and-medicare-work-together ================================= GET ALL MY LATEST BLOGPOSTS: https://heritagewealthplanning.com If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.

Introduction into Medicare Supplements (Medicare Supplement Insurance Series)
 
15:42
http://www.brokersalliance.com (800) 290-7226 Medigap policies are supplemental health insurance policies sold by private insurers, designed to fill some of the "gaps" in health coverage provided by Medicare. Although Medicare covers many health care costs, you still have to pay certain coinsurance and deductible amounts, as well as paying for services that Medicare does not cover. Generally, you must be enrolled in the original Medicare Parts A and B before you need to purchase a Medigap insurance policy. Other types of health insurance coverage, such as Medicare Advantage, other Medicare health plans, Medicaid, or employer-provided health insurance, do not work with Medigap policies. Choosing a Policy There are two primary factors to consider when choosing a Medigap policy. • Needed benefits: Carefully consider what benefits you are most likely to need; you may not need the most comprehensive plan. • Cost: Once you have decided which benefits you will need, shop for the policy that provides those benefits at the lowest cost. Policy Costs Can Differ • Discounts: Some insurers may offer discounts to certain classes of people, such as women, nonsmokers, or married couples. • Medical underwriting: An insurance company may require you to fill out a detailed questionnaire on your health. The information you provide is used to determine whether or not a policy will be issued, or what premium to charge. • Part A skilled nursing: Plans C-G, M and N -- Pay 100% of the coinsurance amount ($144.50 per day in 2012) for days 21-100 in a skilled nursing facility. Plans K and L -- Pay the percentage shown of the coinsurance amount for days 21-100 in a skilled nursing facility. • Part A deductible: Plans B-G, and N -- Pay 100% of the Part A deductible ($1,156 in 2012) for the first 60 days of hospitalization. Plans K, L, and M -- Pay the percentage shown of the Part A deductible for the first 60 days of hospitalization. • Part A hospice: Plans A-G, M and N -- Pay 100% of the Part A hospice copayment. Plans K and L -- Pay the percentage shown of the Part A hospice copayment. • Part B deductible: Plans C and F -- Pay 100% of the annual Part B deductible ($140.00 in 2012). • Part B excess charges: Plans F and G -- Pay 100% of the Part B excess charges • Emergency foreign travel: Plans C-G, M and N -- The insured pays a $250 deductible and then 20% of any remaining costs of emergency health care. This benefit is typically limited to a $50,000 lifetime maximum and the first 60 days of each trip. • Part B preventive care: All plans -- Pay 100% of the coinsurance for preventive care.

Medicare Advantage vs Medigap
 
02:09
It's important to understand the different types of Medicare coverage so you can choose the one that meets your specific needs. Medicare Advantage and the Medicare Supplement (or Medigap) are extra coverage plans that you can use along with traditional Medicare (Parts A and B) to help cover additional healthcare costs. Both Medicare Advantage and Medigap Plans offer the coverage you need, but how do you know which one is a good fit for you for your unique situation?

Medigap Plan N - Medigap Plan N Review

What are the Medigap Plan N – What is a Medigap Plan N? 1-800-566-1002 http://www.RetireSharp.com . What are the best types Medigap Plan N and learn how you can avoid the most common mistakes that individuals have made when looking to purchase a Medigap Plan N. The Medigap Program, maybe better known as Medicare supplemental insurance, is scheduled to undergo major changes in June 2010. These changes are a result of federal legislation from back in 2005. The significant changes to Medigap include: The addition of Medigap Plans M & N to the lineup of choices. The elimination of four established Medigap plans (E, H, I and J). An addition of a hospice benefit to the normal plans of A-G. The elimination of a home recovery or preventative care benefit from every plan. So why all the changes? First off, the preventative care benefit was removed because it is now available through regular Medicare as are many of the preventative services. The home recovery benefit was removed because it was overly complicated and severely underutilized by members. The hospice benefit was added to Medigap policies A through G to cover the out-of-pocket associated with the core Medicare's hospice benefit. The new plans, M & N, offer Medicare users less expensive premiums with new options for deductible and co-payments. For example, Plan M pays 50 percent of the Medicare Part A deductible and none of the part B deductible. Part N requires a co-payment of $20 for office visits and up to a $50 fee for emergency room trips. These increases are meant to offset the lower premiums. Who Benefits from the Changes? In short, everyone should benefit from more options. To determine the best option for you, it is advised that you consult with a Medicare or insurance expert in your area who knows the Medigap program.
