Medicare Advantage - 5 Things To Know About Advantage Plans Before You Enroll

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.

Understanding Healthcare Costs: Medicare Advantage
 
04:01
Medicare Advantage is an insurance program that invites private payors, including health plans and insurance companies, to offer alternatives to traditional Medicare. By providing access to the private insurance market, Medicare Advantage gives beneficiaries the option to choose from a wide range of competing plans, many of which offer richer benefits than Medicare. This video explains how Medicare Advantage works. Video transcript Medicare Advantage is part of the U.S. Medicare system, which is a federal health insurance program that covers 50 million elderly and disabled Americans. Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C, differs from traditional Medicare in that it doesn't define categories of health coverage in the same way as Medicare parts A, B, and D. Instead, it's a special program that invites private payors, including health plans and insurance companies, to provide alternatives to traditional Medicare insurance. As with traditional Medicare, eligibility for Medicare Advantage includes most U.S. residents over age 65, as well as certain nonelderly people with disabilities. While traditional Medicare is administered directly by the federal government, under Medicare Advantage, the government contracts with private payors. At minimum, these payors are required to provide the same level of coverage outlined in Medicare Parts A and B, and typically they provide Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, as well. By providing access to the private insurance market, Medicare Advantage gives beneficiaries the option to choose from a wide range of competing plans, many of which offer richer benefits. A growing number of Medicare beneficiaries are opting for Medicare Advantage. Twenty-seven percent are currently covered by Advantage plans, and enrollment is expected to continue to increase in 2013. All Medicare Advantage plans are funded by federal Medicare dollars—but some plans require members to pay an additional premium. The premium is determined by the benefits provided and the federal reimbursements in the area where the plan is offered. Medicare has specific rules for how Advantage plans are priced. Each county has its own payment benchmarks, as well as different benefit and premium combinations. Each spring and summer, Medicare Advantage plans participate in a bid process that establishes the terms of contract between the payor and the federal government for the next calendar year. Before bids are submitted, plans project member health statuses, costs, revenue from the federal government, and member premium. These projections serve as the basis for the bids, which define the benefits to be offered in each plan. Once the bid process is complete, members are told what the premiums and benefits will be for each plan in the coming year. During the eight week open-enrollment period for Medicare Advantage, beneficiaries must consider a number of variables to decide on a plan that best suits their healthcare needs and budget. In addition to monthly premiums, benefit options, and out-of-pocket limits, they must also consider network composition and plan type. If provider choice is important to them, they may opt for a plan that features either a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) structure rather than a more restrictive HMO. Beneficiaries will also want to consider how flexible a plan is with respect to authorizing prescriptions. While most plans provide for prescription drug coverage, not all of them will pay for all pharmaceuticals. Within each class of drugs, plans may cover only a limited number of drugs. Ultimately, those looking for more comprehensive benefits may gravitate toward the Medicare Advantage program.

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?

Medicare Supplement Plans 2018 | What Do I Need to Do?

http://SeniorSavingsNetwork.org 1-800-729-9590 2018 Medicare Supplement Plans | What Do I Need to Do? If you are on a Medicare Supplement plan, this end-of-the-year Medicare season has nothing to do with you, except for the need you have to shop your drug plan. Medicare Supplements (not to be confused with Medicare "Advantage" plan), do not change benefits and you cannot be canceled from such a plan. Your Medicare Supplement, whether Plan G, Plan F, Plan N, etc. will remain with the same benefits as when you signed up. What can change? The rates. If you are notified of a rate increase, you can shop your Medicare Supplement plan ANY time of the year, not just in October, November, or December of each year. You are in complete control and there is not a "season" for shopping Medicare Supplement plans. Medicare Advantage plans change every year and it is critically important that you shop those plans during the small, eight-week period of the "Annual Election Period." We do not specialize in these plans due to their complexity and the number of problems we have seen with senior clients on these, sometimes "free"/no premium HMO plans throughout the country. My Medicare Supplement shopping service is 100% free. If you would like to know the BEST plans available where you live, please call me at 1-800-729-9590. You can actually call 24 hours a day here. We will get you the best, unbiased, independent rate information customized for what you qualify for, which is far different than just giving you a "quote engine" and having you look at companies that might not even be available for you, given, your health qualifications, etc. If you would like to NOT have to become and insurance agent in order to figure out the best plan and you would like some behind-the-scenes help from an agency who has helped thousands of clients in 46 states over the past 25 years, please call my office. There is no charge for my help. How? The same way there is no charge for your auto insurance agent's help, or homeowner's insurance agent. We work the same way. By being independent, we work for our client, not the insurance company. This way, we keep your best interest in mind when shopping the market. We will show you all of the available companies, then make a recommendation based on our actual experience with those companies in your market. This experience is priceless in the selection process. Please let me help you. http://SeniorSavingsNetwork.org 1-800-729-9590 Christopher Westfall Medicare help More helpful videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmU0KdQuxbU&list=PL9io3Cp5sglCDzPtiKBsNDMPbqfFJSsvE

What is Medicare Advantage?
 
02:30
What is Medicare Advantage? In 2016 over 17 million Americans were enrolled In a Medicare Advantage plan. So, you’re probably asking, what is Medicare Advantage? In a nutshell? There are three distinct types of private health insurance products offered through Medicare-approved insurance companies. They’re designed to either go along with Original Medicare, or replace it. Medicare Advantage is one of those. Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans combine your Part A Hospital, Part B Medical, and Part D Prescription Drug coverage into a single health insurance plan. Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plans must offer the same benefits as Original Medicare, Part A & B, as well as the minimum Part D benefit. But, they also have to limit your out-of-pocket costs. And many include extra benefits, like and coverage for routine dental and vision care. So, why might someone choose Medicare Advantage over “Original Medicare?” These are three common reasons we hear - First, for many people it’s just nice to have hospital, medical and prescription drug coverage – all in one plan. - Second, in most places, there are Medicare Advantage prescription drug plans available at no additional cost – some plans require an additional monthly premium, but not all - And third, because they’re required to limit your yearly out-of-pocket costs. - Original Medicare doesn’t have the same limit. Sometimes people ask, what if I don’t like my Medicare Advantage prescription drug plan? • You can switch to another, or go back to Original Medicare during the annual enrollment period - October 15 to December 7. If you still have questions about Medicare Advantage, do a little research to see if Medicare Advantage might be right for you.

Top 3 Medicare Supplement Plans 2018
 
08:07
Contact Me: MedicareScreenShare@gmail.com My Website: http://www.medicarescreenshare.com Top 3 Medicare Supplement Plans On The Market Today Okay lets look at the Top 3 medicare supplement options in the market today. Lets get right into the presentation. Okay you have 15 different plan options to choose between to supplement original Medicare. The plans range from plan A to Plan N and cover some to all the gaps in Original Medicare. We will just be looking into the 3 most popular plans instead of confusing you with all 15 different coverage options. Looking more into plans F, G and N you can see why they are the most popular plans and why their market shares are growing so quickly. Plan F is the most popular because it is the easiest to understand and covers 100% of the gaps in Medicare. So if you enrolled into Plan F and have a Medicare approved claim, it will cover all the deductibles, coinsurances, and copays of Original Medicare. Plan G is also a very easy to understand plan with it coving 100% of the gaps in Medicare with one exception. That exception is that Plan G does not cover your Part B deductible. The Part B deductible in 2017 is $183… The last plan we will be comparing is Plan N. Plan N also does not cover your $183 Part B deductible much like Plan G… There is also a $20 copay for doctor visits and a $50 copay for emergency room visits that do not result in impatient admission. Lastly Plan N does not cover part Part B excess charges. Part B excess charges are when doctors or specialist charge up to 15% more then what Medicare is willing to pay for a test, sugary, or procedure. Plan F was on average the most expensive at $130 dollars, Plan G was $104, and least expensive was Plan N at $85. This is very consistent with what you will find throughout the United States. Now lets compare the three. Comparing Plan F to Plan G is very easy. All you need to do is some simple math to find out that Plan G will cost on average about $312 less a year than Plan F. Then subtract the only difference between the two. And if you remember the only difference is the $183 Part B deductible. So your net savings with Plan G after taking into account all benefit differences is $129. So with a Plan F you are paying an insurance company $129 a year to pay for your Part B deductible. And you can even pocket the whole difference of $312 if you do not go to the doctor at all… Some other factors to look at when comparing these plans is that Plan F will no longer be available to new enrollees in 2020, but you can keep your plan as long as you like if you signed up before 2020. Plan F ending will create a closed risk pool most likely leading to higher rate increases for Plan F after 2020. It is also important to point out that Plan G and N have had historically lower rate increases than Plan F in the past as well. So just because plan F is the most popular plan on the market does not make it the best. Comparing Plans G and N is a little more difficult. Again after some simple math you find out that you can save $228 a year with Plan N over a Plan G. But you need to factor in the Part B copays with Plan N. The $228 dollar difference between plans G and N is equivalent to 11.4 $20 office visit or 4.6 $50 emergency room visits. So you would have to have quite a few office or ER lists to make up the difference in cost, but do not forget about the Part B excess charges with Plan N. You can avoid these charges by only working with Medicare Assigned doctors, but the risk of being charged 15% more for a test, sugary, or procedure is one of the reasons why Plan N is less expensive. So excess charges are an important factor when deciding between Plan G and N, but if you are in great health then Plan N could save you a lot of money especially if you continue to stay healthy 5 to 10 years into your Medicare enrollment. Now which is the best of the three. Well I would have to pick Plan G in most cases. It is close between Plan G and N, but the safer long term bet is with Plan G. Now if you are exceptionally healthy you should seriously consider Plan N especially if the cost difference is over $200 a year. But remember if you do pick Plan N just always make sure your doctor except Medicare Assignment to avoid any Excess Charges. And finally Plan F. Plan F is only for the person where money really does not matter. Thanks for taking the time to check out this quick presentation and I hope you found it helpful.

Medicare Advantage vs Medicare Supplement
 
07:49
My Website: http://www.medicarescreenshare.com Contact Me: MedicareScreenShare@gmail.com Now the big question, should I sign up for a medicare advantage or a medicare supplement. Well as you probably learned in my medicare 101 video medicare advantage plans are part C of medicare and are run by medicare-approved private insurance companies. And they must at least cover what medicare parts A and B cover. Some plans even offer prescription drug coverage along with other benefits. Now medicare supplements as opposed to replacing your medicare parts A and B with another plan work with them. Medicare supplements are designed to fill some to all the gaps in medicare depending on which plan you choose. These plans are also offered by private insurance companies. Medicare supplement plans have predictable cost, they are standardized, they do not have networks of doctors and hospitals. And you have options of different plans to cover some to all the gaps in medicare. On the negative side you do need to get separate drug coverage, they almost always have higher monthly premiums, and these premiums increase each year because of your age and also because of the experience of the risk pool they put you in. So if your in a unhealthy area your premiums will increase faster than if you live in a healthy area. Medicare advantage plans are lower cost, with the most popular plans having $0 premium. Most include drug coverage. Most also have some small benefits for hearing, dental, vision, and wellness. The most popular benefits like these are free gym memberships. The negatives of medicare advantages are the networks where you need to see their doctors at their hospitals. the plans are not standardized and change yearly, and you can have max out of pockets of $6,700. And finally Medicare advantage plans are much more expensive in the long run for chronic conditions. Now lets look at overall satisfaction of medicare advantage and medicare supplement plans. 15% of medicare advantage customers rated their insurance as fair or poor, compared to 6% rating traditional medicare with a supplement as fair or poor. 24.8% of people that are leaving medicare advantage plans because they had problems with provider access… So these people did not like being in a network of hospitals or doctors… And also 21.5% of people said they dis-enrolled because of misinformation and marketing abuse. Okay, I know I painted a pretty negative picture of medicare advantage. These $0 premium plans really do not have much of an advantage to them, but there are good plans in areas of the country that are worth seriously looking at. I mostly run into 0 premium plans where I market, so they are the ones I focus on the most. And as always remember if you have any questions make sure to call me at (920) 960-4312 or shoot me a email at medicarescreenshare@gmail.com. Thanks again and have a wonderful day! Medicare advantage plans maximum out of pockets are increasing with the popularity of their $0 premium plans. But you can see with this graph that there are other plans with different maximum out of pockets that you can choose form. But the average maximum out of pocket is still $5,257.

What Are The Best Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap) In 2018?
 
08:32
Best Medicare supplement plans. Get a free quote: http://medicaresavingscenter.com or call 800-208-4974. This video explains what the best Medicare supplement plans are in 2018. There was a change in benefits for 2017 on the Medicare level; the Part B deductible went from $166 (in 2016) to $183 in 2017. This did affect all Medigap plans and not just the plans that don't cover the Part B deductible. The premiums on Plan F will have to increase to cover this change as the insurance companies will have to pay for the difference in benefit. In 2018, the best Medicare supplemental insurance plans are plan F, G and N. Plan G is the #1 plan with plan N and F as runner ups. If you are in CA or another state that has a birthday rule, then going with Plan F to start is usually a good idea. Please refer to my video about Medicare supplement plans in California if you are a resident there. The lower rates and most importantly lower rate increases on Plan G and N make these plans far more superior over Plan F. In almost every case the premium difference between F and G more than covers the only benefit difference which is $183 for the year. For example, the most you would pay out of pocket for the year with Plan G is $183 and the premium difference between F and G is almost always more than $183, thus saving you money. The best way to save money is to allow us to shop the rates for you and ensure you will not be overpaying for your supplement plan. IN addition, by being one of our clients you will have the benefit of annual rate reviews to ensure you will not be in the situation in the future where you are overpaying!

Frequently Asked Questions On Medicare Advantage Plans
 
18:06
Frequently Asked Questions On Medicare Advantage Plans Medicare pays a fixed amount for your care each month to the companies offering Medicare Advantage Plans. These companies must follow rules set by Medicare. However, each Medicare Advantage Plan can charge different out-of-pocket costs. Each plan can also have different rules for how you get services, like: • Whether you need a referral to see a specialist • If you have to go to doctors, facilities, or suppliers that belong to the plan for non-emergency or non-urgent care These rules can change each year. How To Compare Medicare Advantage Plans You want the broadest possible choice in doctors and other medical providers. More doctors and other providers accept original Medicare than private Medicare Advantage insurance. Private plans tend to be restricted to a home network, like an HMO doctor network. If you travel frequently, you may want to consider staying with original Medicare for this reason. Medicare Advantage Plans Compared (verus) To Medigap/Supplements With a Medicare Midigap/Supplement you will continue to be covered by original Medicare. After Medicare has paid your claims, it will automatically forward them to your Medigap plan. The Medigap plan will then pay its portion of the bill. Medigap plans do not cover prescription drugs. Therefore you must also purchase a stand-alone Part D plan if you want drug coverage. With a Medicare Advantage plan, you continue to pay your Part B premium as usual. You may also pay an extra premium for the plan. You are not allowed to have a Medigap and Medicare Advantage plan simultaneously. Medicare Advantage plans typically come with deductibles and co-pays. But unlike original Medicare, they have an annual out-of-pocket limit. That means that once you have paid deductibles and co-pays that add up to the annual out-of-pocket limit, the plan will pay 100 percent of your medical bills for the rest of the year. Medicare Advantage Plans With Zero Premium If you can't afford or don't want to pay additional monthly premiums. Medicare Advantage plans, like other private health plans, typically charge premiums. The recent average was about $30 a month for an HMO and $32 to $63 for a PPO, Medicare Advantage Plans Under 65 If you are under 65 but have Medicare because of a disability or other qualifying condition, after 2 years of disability you have the blanket right to buy a medicare plan guaranteed issue and a Medicare Advantage Plan. Coverage while traveling. Many plans will only pay for emergency care when you are away from home. If you divide your time between two homes or pay extended visits to your adult children, this could pose a problem if you need something routine such as a lab test. A few plans have national networks you can use, but you can't see this information on Medicare.gov. You will have to call the plan directly to ask about it. The plan's listing on Medicare.gov has numbers for you to call. Which Medicare Advantage Plan To Choose The first thing to do is make sure you are seeing all the plans in your area. Does the plan have a good star rating? What are the Co-pays, Deductibles, out of pocket limit? Is your Hospital & doctors in the networks list of providers? Does it offer dental and vision coverage and additional benefits? Medicare Advantage Plans With Dental Dental coverage through Medicare Advantage plan. You may be able to get dental coverage under some Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage plans (Medicare Part C) can include extra benefits like routine dental, routine vision, and Medicare prescription drug coverage. Medicare Advantage Plans With Dental & Vision coverage. Many Advantage plans come with some dental and vision coverage Medicare Advantage Plans With Silver Sneakers SilverSneakers is the premier fitness program provided at no cost by more than 60 health plans nationwide. Millions of members. Thousands of gyms. Medicare Advantage Plans With Nationwide Coverage If you divide your time between two homes or pay extended visits to your adult children, this could pose a problem if you need something routine such as a lab test. A few plans have national networks you can use Enrollment Periods If you decide to buy a Medicare Advantage plan, you must enroll between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7 – the period known as open enrollment – in order for your coverage to start the first of the following year. (Original Medicare has separate enrollment periods for seniors who aren't automatically enrolled.) Because of government regulation, Medicare Advantage premiums are not influenced by age, health status or the method by which a consumer signs up (through an insurance agent, for example, or directly through an insurer).

Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Supplement, Which one is for me?

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".

Medicare advantage plans can without a doubt lower your monthly spending if you are HEALTHY! If you notice the key to that sentence is if you are healthy. Medicare Supplements are very popular with doctors because they pay their bills on time and they don't argue the cost, because they can't.

One advantage plan from Blue Cross (HMO) has a zero premium. The out of pocket cost for the year could possibly be over $6500 for a year. It may cost you $20 for a doctor visit or $200 per day in the hospital etc etc. The point is it is $0 for the premium which gets everyone excited, but if you need to get a surgery done in December, it could cost you $6000 out of pocket. Also, the hospital may or may not take the Medicare Blue Cross Advantage plan. The Advantage Plan from Blue Cross that is "0″ premium is an HMO plan and some hospitals and doctors won't take it. The Medicare supplement plan F from Aetna is a Medigap plan that could cost around $150-$200 a month premium depending on if your a Male or Female, what zip code you live in etc. The difference is, the out of pocket cost for Medicare approved procedures is "0″. Also, any hospital that excepts Medicare has to except the Medigap plan F from Aetna. Also, this Medigap supplement Plan F could be from any company including, KSKJ life, Family Life, Mutual of Omaha, New Era, ANTEX, AARP, etc etc. The out of pocket cost is going to be your premium not copays and deductibles. The bottom line is do you want to pay in the front or in the back. Do you want to pay a zero premium and pay deductibles and copays, or do you want zero deductibles and copays with a higher premium. Your going to pay either way. Put your zip code into Medigaplist and we can give you the best Medigap rates possible.

Call (888) 310-0376 to Compare Top Rated Medicare Advantage plans. Compare Medicare Advantage Plans by following these helpful tips to enroll in your best Medicare Advantage Plan option. Visit http://affordablemedicareplan.com to get access to hundreds of articles on Medicare Advantage, Medicare supplements and Part D insurance. The first tip to help you get the best plan is to compare Medicare Advantage Plans every year during the Annual Election period. Medicare Advantage Plan benefits, out-of-pocket costs and provider directories can undergo changes every year. Your current plan may suit your needs in every respect but may not for the following calendar year. and even if it seem like it will be suitable, there may be changes to another plan that by by-passed the previous year, that will make it your best plan option. When you compare Medicare Advantage Plans you should carefully review 3 plan documents for any Advantage Plan that you are considering. 1. The Summary of Benefits - All plan benefits and their respective costs will be outlined in detail. Do not enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan only after reviewing the outline of benefits which is really just a top level view hitting the highlights. When you review the plan's Summary of Benefits, become familiar with what is covered, how much it will cost and what your annual maximum out-of-pocket amount is. Review the extra benefits like dental and vision so you're not disappointed when you plan on using them. Many dental and vision benefits are merely discounts and not insurance. Be particularly mindful of dental networks, as Medicare advantage Plans are notorious for skimpy dental networks. 2. The Medicare Advantage Plan Provider Directory - Too many people jump into a plan because their primary care provider is in network, only to be disappointed later when the lab or hospital that they prefer is not included. Be sure that your specialists, preferred hospital and ancillary facilities are in network as well. 3. The Part D Formulary - The formulary will list every drug covered by a specific plan. It will also indicate which tiers those drugs are placed in. Your goal is to find a plan that included all your drugs.

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.

How to Choose a Medicare Drug Plan - 1-877-88KEITH (53484)

How to Choose a Medicare Drug Plan. Complete Medicare Resource Center here: http://www.MedicareonVideo.com 1-877-88KEITH (53484) Important Points to Know about Obtaining Medicare Drug Coverage When enrolling for Medicare you can get coverage for prescription drugs. Medicare drug coverage is available through private insurance companies approved by Medicare. There are different ways to obtain the coverage with associated costs that vary depending on other coverage used with this plan. It is important to know how this works with other insurance you have in order to get the best coverage. Here is what you need to know about this option. How Do You Get Coverage You have two options to get drug coverage including through Medicare Part C Advantage Plan or through Part D Prescription Drug Plan. The most common way is through Part D. This plan can be used with original Medicare and other plan option such as a Medical Savings Account (MSA) or Medicare Cost Plans. Part C or Medicare Advantage Plan includes using a PPO or HMO along with benefits similar to Part A and B. You may be required to sign up for Part A and B in order to obtain Part D with Part C. Medicare drug coverage options may vary and could change depending on what Part C covers. Associated Costs and Getting Help Your income will determine how much you pay toward prescription drugs. If you receive Social Security you can have costs deducted from your Social Security payment. You may be required to satisfy an annual deductible before the drug coverage starts to pay. You may be required to pay a copay or coinsurance after paying a deductible (if your plan has this requirement). There are drug plans with different tiers that show how much you could pay depending on related costs. Generic drugs may have cheaper copay than name brand. The copay can be anywhere from a few dollars to $10 or so. The coinsurance is roughly a percentage of what the beneficiary pays before Medicare insurance covers costs. An example may be 20 or 25 percent. When you pay for drugs you are paying for a month supply unless stated otherwise. There is potential for out-of-pocket costs to be paid by the beneficiary if the insurance does not cover the cost, but in few cases this is rare. Additional Tips on Drug Coverage You can get help paying for Medicare drug coverage if you qualify. You may need to provide proof of documentation to show your eligibility for assistance. Such options may allow you to pay just a few dollars for medicine. You can obtain help when you are receiving medication and before your supply runs out for the month. The amount you pay for your plan varies based on drugs used, plan option, where you go to obtain prescriptions, if the drug is on the formulary approved by Medicare, and whether you qualify for assistance in paying for drug costs. You may qualify for assistance by your state if you receive Medicare Part A and/or Part B coverage. Enroll for coverage during the initial period to avoid paying penalites.

What is a Medicare Advantage Plan and is a Free Medicare Advantage Plan really Free? 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. With a Medicare Supplement or Medigap Plan, you retain the rights of Original Medicare and can see any doctor that accepts Medicare. The so-called Fee Medicare Advantage plans are not really free, you pay no monthly premium but could end up paying thousands of dollars in medical insurance down the road.

Medicare Part D - 5 Things To Know Before You Enroll in a Part D Plan

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.

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.

5 Benefits Of Enrolling In Medicare Advantage

Are you considering a Medicare Advantage Plan? Here are 5 benefits of enrolling in a Medicare Advantage Plan. An Advantage Plan is not necessarily right for everyone, but if you are leaning toward a Medicare Advantage Plan, these 5 benefits may give you a compelling reason to go forward. Visit http://free-mini-course.com get additional information on Medicare Plans, including how to choose your best plan... guaranteed! 5 Benefits of joining a Medicare Advantage Plan: 1. You will have predictable out-of-pocket costs in the form of deductibles, coinsurance and copayments. These cost sharing amounts are often much lower than the Part A and Part B deductible of original Medicare. 2. You will have a cap on your annual out-of-pocket costs. The maximum out-of-pocket costs (MOOP) can limit your liability. When you are enrolled in original Medicare, you will be subject to the Medicare Part A deductible and the Part B deductible as well as the 20% coinsurance for outpatient services. 3. You can receive your Medical and drug benefits from one plan. Medicare advantage Plans that include Part D prescription coverage often have low or $0 monthly premiums which can save you money over enrolling in a separate medical and Part D plan. 4. You may have access to extra benefits that are not included in original Medicare. These may range from, dental, vision, hearing and the Silver Sneakers Gym Membership program. 5. You will most likely have lower premiums than if you purchased a Medicare supplement. Many Medicare Advantage Plans do not have a monthly premium.

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. Medicare has neither reviewed nor endorsed this information. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Follow eHealth at: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eHealth Twitter: https://twitter.com/eHealth _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Medicare Supplements - 5 Things To Know Before You Buy A Medicare Supplemental Policy
 
07:00
Call (888) 310-0376 to Compare All Medicare Supplement Plans in Your State. Get Instant Access http://free-mini-course.com I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Supplements before you buy. As far as Medicare Plans go, Medicare supplemental coverage is a little easier to understand than Medicare Advantage. So what is Medicare supplement insurance and how does it work? Medicare supplemental insurance is also known as Medigap. It is private health insurance designed to supplement original Medicare by helping to pay some of your share of costs for Medicare-covered services. Medicare supplement plans are standardized insurance policies and are designated by the letters A through N. Standardization means that the same plan will generally have identical benefits no matter which company sells it. The second thing you should be aware of is that Medicare supplements are different than Medicare Advantage plans. While a Medigap policy pays your share of costs after Medicare pays, an Advantage Plan is another way to get your Medicare benefits and these benefits are paid by the plan. Medicare Advantage Plans are often PPOs or HMOs and require you to receive services from network providers. Medicare supplement policies on the other hand allow you in most cases (except Medicare Select) to choose your own providers without network restrictions. You cannot be canceled from your supplement unless you stop paying premiums. Advantage Plans are good for one year and require you to renew annually. Get Instant Access - http://free-mini-course.com - Unlock the information you need to choose the best plan for your circumstances. The third thing you should know is when you can buy a Medicare supplement. The best time to buy is during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period which lasts for 6 months and begins when you are both 65 or older and eligible for Part B. This in the best time to buy because an insurance company cannot: Refuse to sell you any policy it sells Make you wait for coverage Charge you more due to health problems Another time to get Medicare supplemental coverage is when you are entitled to Guaranteed Issue Rights. These rights are triggered by a change in your circumstances, such as; your Medicare Advantage Plan leaving Medicare or not renewing for the following year or your employer or Union group insurance is ending. The fourth thing you should know is how to compare Medicare Supplement Plans. Standardization make comparing plans easy. Once you look at the Medicare supplement benefits chart you will be able to see what is covered by each plan and then compare that plan across several companies. Fifth, you need to be aware that Medicare supplement rates can vary widely between plans. It's not uncommon to see $100 or more difference in monthly premiums for the same plan. Plans that are worthy of consideration include Medicare supplement Plan F and Plan N. Plan F is the most popular nationally and the most comprehensive. Medicare supplement Plan N is a good option if you can handle a little out-of-pocket expense. When comparing Medicare supplement policies remember that the best Medicare supplement is the one that fits your budget and gives you the most bang for your buck.

What is the 2017 Medicare Part B premium & annual deductible costs

Medicare Part B monthly premiums for 2017 and Medicare Part A -B Deductibles are increasing... CMS (Medicare) has just announced the new premiums for your Medicare Part B and the new deductibles for your Medicare Part A and Part B The majority of people have been paying $104.90 for Part B for the last few years but will now be paying $109.00 with the 2017 Medicare increase. The rest of Medicare beneficiaries (about 30%) will now pay the new 2017 Medicare Part B premium of $134 per month. This premium can be debited from your monthly Social Security benefit check or can be paid quarterly by mailing in your premiums with a check or money order. Medicare has also announced that the annual Medicare Part B deductible will be increasing to $183 VS 2016 Medicare Part B deductible of $166. Even with this slight increase in the Part B Deductible, I suggest Medicare Supplement Plan G to most of my clients. I still believe that Plan G is the most cost effective plan to get since the insurance carriers will be forced to increase premiums on Plan F to cover the deductible increases.

Understand how a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans can be zero dollars ($0) or have no premium. - All Medicare Advantage plans offer, at a minimum, the same coverage as Original Medicare, Part A and Part B. - These plans offered by private insurance companies can set their own prices and must be approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services before anyone can enroll. - With a $0 plan, you’re getting Medicare Advantage for the same amount you would pay for Medicare Part B - And, the government pays the insurer an additional amount. - What you get with a Medicare Advantage plan, that you don’t get with Original Medicare is a cap or limit on your out-of-pocket costs of $6,700 or less. - In addition, many Medicare Advantage plans include a Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit – these are typically called Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans (MA-PD)s.
