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

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 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 Often can I Change Medicare Supplement Plan ?
http://www.LibertySeniorSavings.com 88 Medicare Questions in 88 Days (888) 506-7510 Changing your Medicare plan all depends on what Medicare type of plan you have. If you have Medicare Advantage you are not on original Medicare. You are limited to networks, copays, the maximum out-of-pocket is $6,700 a year. Any procedure you have HAS to be authorized by the insurance company. Also you cannot travel and be covered by Medicare Advantage. It is an alternative to original Medicare. If you have Medicare Advantage, there is only one time of the year that you can make changes. That time frame is the fall period between October 15 and December 7. That is the only time you can make changes. Those changes don’t actually take effect until the 1st of January. Medicare Supplement on the other hand gives you freedom in choosing your doctor & hospital & there are no networks. You have no copays and no network restrictions. You can travel and be covered. You have choices of deductible. As of 2017, the 2 most popular plans have either zero deductible or $183 Annual deductible. There is NO max out of pocket like Medicare Advantage. You can change a Medicare Supplement 365 times a year if you like. There are no specific times to make changes like the Medicare Advantage. You want to check on several things with those two plans. It’s beneficial to have someone check out your plan. Is that working for you? Do you want to stay with that? Or do you want to go onto a Supplement & be able to choose your doctors/hospital and have no network restrictions? Medicare Advantage is completely different than a Medicare Supplement. Have a look at the screen. It is about the differences between Medicare Advantage vs. Medicare Supplement. Maybe you want something with a stable premium that you know how much you’re going to pay every month and there’s no surprises. So that’s just a thought or maybe you want to make some changes go from one Medicare Advantage company to the other. There is only one time of the year to make a change to your Part D Prescription Drug Plan. That’s the fall period October 15 to December 7. If have changed any of your prescriptions there might be another plan that might be better for you. That’s something that we offer at the check-in on the drug plan in the fall period. We offer this as a customer service only, we don’t actually handle drug plan. There’s just too many plans. We just use www.medicare.gov. Check out article/video on Part D Drug Plan. We show you step by step everything what we do. We just pop those in the mail to you. That way you can analyze it by deductible, premium and max out of pocket. People think that supplements are lumped into that time frame too but that’s not true. We help people change their supplement 365 days a year. Medicare protects seniors by having all the plans being standardized. This means brings the norm or to be the same. So what that means is every Plan G is the exact same benefits as another Plan G in the market. But Medicare doesn’t police what these companies can charge. See on the screen page 100 of the Medicare & You Guide Book 2016 where it states very clearly that insurance companies can charge different premiums for the exact same policy. Keep in mind that you just want to make sure you are comparing Plan F to Plan F or Plan G to Plan G. Customer service is very important here at Liberty Senior Savings. You get mail, cards, Medicare updates all year around. We do the Rate check in with folks. They do not have to change their plan by any means. We just check-in to make sure that there’s not another option for them that they could qualify for that might be less money for them. So on the Medicare Supplements you can change 365 days a year. We can save people $50/$100/$120 a month without changing any of their benefits.

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.

As discussed in this video https://youtu.be/TRMX3LZJ2bU Medicare Advantage plans have many differences to a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan. The biggest is the network, in a Medicare Advantage Plan you will be required to stay in Network for all your Medicare procedures. This fact alone can cause some major problems if you need a specialist or care facility out of Network. The second biggest issue is that the plan can change at any time and you are locked in for a year. Your best option in most circumstances is to go with a Medicare Supplement during your original open enrollment and then making a change next year if you feel it is not a good fit or that the premiums are much to high. _________________________________________________________________ **Dont miss a single Medicare Supplement video Click Below to SUBSCRIBE** https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpeawY2B_hUuZhV26QAwRuQ?sub_confirmation=1 _________________________________________________________________ Loran Marmes Medicare Solutions Team 844-528-8688 https://medigapinfo.net/ Facebook: https://business.facebook.com/medicaresolutionsteam

2017 Medicare Supplement Plans | What's changing and staying the same!
https://www.remedigap.com https://www.remedigap.com/ecourse 888-411-1329 Medigap Tips: 2017 Medicare Supplement Plans If you just started researching Medicare Supplement insurance, or you’ve been at it awhile, I’ll give you some tips about what’s changing and what’s staying the same in 2017. Hi, Joann Quinn, insurance professional and co-founder of REMEDIGAP.com, just here to make Medicare and Medigap a little bit easier…one video at a time. So, let’s see what’s happening in 2017 with benefit changes, new plans, and rate increases. Plan benefit changes Since CMS standardized Medigap plan benefits, they’ll remain the same in 2017. So, essentially, that means…if Medicare approves your claim, then Medigap is required to pay according to the Outline of Coverage established for your Medigap Plan…when it comes to copays, deductibles and coinsurance. Now, with that said, as of this recording, an announcement hasn’t been made regarding any increases to Medicare deductibles. However, if there are increases, Medigap plans adjust according to the Outline of Coverage. So, For instance, if the Part A Hospital Deductible increases, and your Medigap plan covers the Part A deductible, it will automatically adjust to pay the new deductible amount. This is a great safety net put in place by CMS. And, Likewise, if you have Plan F or Plan C, those plans will also automatically adjust to pay the Part B deductible if it increases in 2017. So, are there any New Medigap Plans in 2017? Well, there aren’t any new plans, it’s still the same 10 standardized plans…however, you may begin hearing more about Plan D in 2017. Now, this isn’t Part D (your drug plan), it’s Medigap Plan D…and, I can’t figure out why they just couldn’t give it a different letter to make it less confusing, but, nonetheless, it’s Medigap Plan D. And, some insurance carriers are beginning to sell it. But, as of this video it’s still not super competitive, however, definitely one to keep an eye on in 2017. If insurance companies can get the rate lower than Plan G, it could be worth a look. Okay, let’s address Rate adjustments It’s always a popular topic….but, first things first, not all Medigap companies increase rates on January 1. When you hear about first of the year changes, it’s usually in reference to Medicare Part D (drug plan) and Medicare Advantage Plans (the HMO /PPOs). But what you need to be aware of is that Medigap rate adjustments can happen any time of the year. So, Let me show you an example of what I’m talking about… And, as in 2016, Plan G & Plan N will probably continue to grow in popularity and grab more of the Medicare Supplement market share, which may mean Plan F will incur rate increases that aren’t as favorable as G or N. However, it all comes down to the insurance company and how they manage their Medigap plans and Medical Loss Ratios when determining their rate increases. And, I have one quick Bonus Tip for you… If you’re concerned about buying a Medigap Plan and getting a rate increase a couple months later (based on the fact that insurers can raise rates any time of the year), don’t worry…most insurance companies offer a 12 month rate lock. Just make sure you add that to your list of questions when doing your research. And, Speaking of research, if you want to learn more about Medicare, sign up for my free Medicare Ecourse.

Medicare Supplements - 5 Things To Know Before You Buy A Medicare Supplemental Policy
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.

How Does Medicare Part C Work?
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:  Impact of Trump & Obama Care?
http://www.FirstMedicareAdvisors.com - - Recorded Hotline: 1-800-958-8171 - Office: 1-800-825-2919. - - Email: info@firstmedicareadvisors.com - - PS: No Sales Pitches Ever! We hate them much as you do! In this video, we will be discussing the concerns our clients have about how the Obama/Trump care changes will be impacting their Medicare coverage in the future. A lot of our customers are concerned about Obama and Trump care impacting their Medicare coverage. I’m going to call these government-sponsored plans “legislation” for simplicity. In 2014, the bill was designed to create guidelines that apply to only individual health insurance policies for people under the age of 65. If you are enrolled in Medicare, you may not buy insurance in the individual marketplace. This basically means the legislation does not apply to you - if you are on Medicare. The good news about this is that you do not need to worry about your Medicare coverage. If you are on a traditional Medicare supplement plan - your insurance is not changing at all. If you are over age 65, you will continue to have original Medicare as your primary insurance. Your existing supplement plan will have the exact same benefits and coverage as it always has had. Some of you have asked us if they should consider moving to an individual health insurance plan due to the legislation. Your answer to that question is no. If you are on Medicare, you are not eligible for an individual health insurance plan. That went away the day you turned age 65. There are several standard supplement plans available to you in your zip code. You will want to think carefully about which Plan fits your needs the best. Don’t hesitate to contact us for more details and quotes for all the companies that offer plans in your zip code. You can call our office at 1-800-825-2919. You can also call our recorded hotline at 1-800-958-8171 and leave your first name and ask your question or request. There is one area, the Medicare Advantage Plan, that was affected by the legislation. Remember, when you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan you leave Medicare. Your coverage is from a private insurance company. The essential features or character of Medicare Advantage plans didn’t change. These programs will continue to be available to consumers like you. However, it did alter the funding for Medicare Advantage plans. The plans will receive lower federal funding in the years ahead. You will see increases in your costs related to the program. So, if you have an HMO or PPO plan where you have these copays, coinsurance, and deductibles for medical services, you will see changes. To learn more about your Medicare supplement plans and other possible options to lower your premiums call us today at 1-800-825-2919. We are standing by and ready to answer all your questions. If you prefer, give our office a call on our Recorded Hotline. That number is 1-800-958-8171. Record your first name, and then ask your question or request and we’ll get back with you. If you’re not comfortable with calling - send us an email to info@firstmedicareadvisors.com. Or, visit our website: http://www.First MedicareAdvisors.com

How to avoid the biggest Medicare open enrollment mistake
http://IncredibleRetirement.com 800-393-1017 If you are already on Medicare you hopefully know about the open enrollment period which usually runs from the middle of October to the first week or so of December. This is when you can change your plan or coverage. Unfortunately, recent research shows that over 70% of folks covered by Medicare are overpaying simply by not reviewing their coverage every year. These overpayments could add up to hundreds even thousands of dollars per year. Over a 10-year period of time, the amount you overpay for coverage could have paid for a really nice vacation and, in some cases, maybe even a new car. The first step is to understand whether you will be better served with traditional Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan. Traditional Medicare is where you have Medicare Part A, Part B, probably a Medicare Supplement and usually Medicare Part D, which is a prescription drug plan. At a very basic level, think of traditional Medicare as being similar to traditional health insurance preferred provider type plans. You have more flexibility in choosing your doctors and other care providers and seeing specialists without requiring a referral from a primary care physician. Medicare Advantage Plans are more like HMOs. If you're in reasonably good health and don't need that much in terms of medical care, this could be a cost effective option for you. Needless to say, comparing insurance coverage like this can be a very complicated and mind-numbing experience. You could compare plans by going to the Medicare website, Medicare.gov, but your better option, we think, is to work with an independent insurance agent who is an expert in both Medicare Supplement Plans as well as Medicare Advantage Plans from multiple companies. Reviewing your Medicare coverage options with a Medicare expert every year is a key step in moving you closer to experiencing your version of an incredible retirement, doing what you want, when you want.

What are various parts of Medicare Part A, B, C, and D? Medicare Parts Explained!
please subscribe to our channel for more videos! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUT2dLC-nsm36IzOkemXRbA 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!

Moving with Medicare  (What you need to know)
Are you planning on moving to another state and want to know how it will impact your Medicare? We have answers for you in this video from an independent Medicare insurance broker. See our other videos: https://medigapseminars.org/on-demand-webinar/ AND https://medigapseminars.org/new-to-medicare/ Contact Us: 800-847-9680 or https://medigapseminars.org/contact-us/ Request a Quote: https://medigapseminars.org/medigap-plans/m-quote-request/ So you have Medicare and you are planning to move to a new location or even a new state. How is your move going to impact your Medicare coverage, and what do you need to do to make sure your coverage is seamless? What you need to do depends on what type of Medicare plan you have. If you have a Medicare supplement like a Plan F or G or N or any of the ten different Medigap plans, you do NEED to do anything more than provide the insurance company with your change of address. Your Medigap plan is good with any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare from coast-to-coast so there is no requirement to change plans and moving does not create a special enrollment period for Medicare supplements. However, it is in your best interest to at least re-shop the plan when you move. Every state has a different prices for their supplement plans. If you are moving to a state with generally lower premiums this may be an opportunity to save money. If you are moving to a state with generally higher premiums you may still want to shop because your insurance company will have the right to increase your premium to be consistent with their premiums for your age group in the new state. But, just because your insurance company may have been the best value for you at your current residence does not mean it will be the best value for you when you move. So, with a Medicare supplement plan there is no requirement to do anything when you move to another state, but it is in your best interest to re-shop your plan and it cost nothing to shop. If you have a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage plan (which are usually HMOs or PPOs) you will be required to take action before you move to another state. Unlike the Medicare supplement, your Part D prescription drug plan or your Medicare Advantage plan are only local coverage. They are designed and priced just for your county or surrounding area. If you move outside of their local service are you create a Special Enrollment Period. Here is what you do, about 30-days prior to moving you contact your Medicare Part D insurance company or your Medicare Advantage insurance company and you inform them when you are moving and where you are moving to. If you are moving out of the local area they service, they will send you what we call a Disenrollment Letter. The Disenrollment Letter is your Golden Ticket to have a Special Enrollment period. With the Medicare Part D plan, you can re-shop your coverage to find which plan is best for you at your new zip code. You want to get into this new Part D plan within 63-days of when your existing coverage ends. Your window to change plans is between 60-calendar days before the end of your current insurance coverage and 63-days after your current insurance coverage is terminated to take action. So plan ahead. If you have a Medicare Advantage everything is identical to what I just talked about with your Medicare Part D, with one twist. You want to make the change in your coverage seamless, but there can be up to a 63-day gap between when your current coverage ends and when your new Medicare Advantage plan begins. Keep in mind that Medicare Advantage plans vary greatly from state to state. Do not assume that the Medicare Advantage plan you have will be the same in another state. It won’t. You need to look carefully at your options and make an informed decision. But here is the twist; this Special Election Period also gives you the opportunity to change from a Medicare Advantage plan to a Medicare Supplement. You can only get certain Medicare supplement plans, but you can do so without medical questions and on a guarantee issue basis. Before January 01, 2020 you will be able to select from Medicare supplement plans A, B, C, F, F-HD or K. After January 01 2020 Plan F and C may not be available for guarantee issue. Nothing is set in stone at this time, but Plans F & C may be replaced by Plan G and a new Plan G-HD. If you are watching this video in 2020 or after, check with us for which plans are available to you. So that’s it. If you are moving and have Medicare, re-shop your Medicare supplement and use a Special Enrollment period to purchase a new Medicare Part D plan, a Medicare Advantage or convert your coverage from a Medicare Advantage plan to a guarantee issue Medicare Supplement. Do not assume that your best plan or best value one state is the same in another. Your Medicare supplement BENEFITS are the same everywhere, but prices change significantly.

Frequently Asked Questions On Medicare Advantage Plans
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.

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.
