Retired seniors look to Medicare to cover most of their medical expenses. The fact is that Medicare does not cover every medical expense in the book. Consequently, seniors look for other Medicare coverage to cover that gap in medical payments. Seniors are automatically eligible for Medicare part A which covers hospital cost. Medicare part B, C, and D are also available. Seniors pay a monthly premium for the additional coverage. A Medicare Part F plan pays all deductibles and co-pays.

Was losing my seat for Obamacare worth it?

Unfortunately, the same desperate lies and scare tactics will continue, but the facts surrounding Obamacare are finally coming into focus. While Republicans argued this bill would fund abortion (even though federal funding for abortion has been banned since the Hyde Amendment was first passed in 1976), this has been one of the most pro-life laws in our country’s history. Access to contraception coverage has already shown results. The CDC recently reported that the teen birth rate has reached a historic low (since the data started being collected in 1940). Because of free contraceptives, abortions have been cut by almost 80% in places like St. Louis. By expanding health care coverage and requiring insurance plans to include prenatal and maternity coverage, mothers and their babies will receive the care they need. Today one in five American women of childbearing age are uninsured and the U.S. has one of the highest infant mortality rates among all industrialized countries.

Ten days into ‘Obamacare’

The same year, Mitt Romney’s health care reforms in Massachusetts — which later served as the blueprint for the Affordable Care Act — started out with all kinds of problems. Stephanie Mencimer reported this week that in the early months, the state system saw “lost paperwork, computer glitches, confusion over who was eligible for what, and not enough staff to handle the workload.” It led to consumers waiting “several months after submitting an application to finally get coverage.”

Medicare FAQ: What is Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Insurance

As mentioned previously, Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, provides seniors and eligible disabled and ill Americans with the health coverage they need; however, it does not cover all costs and benefits. That’s where Medicare Supplement Insurance comes in. These plans can fill in the gaps in Original Medicare coverage. Although this type of coverage may not be right for all individuals, it is important to see if you need additional coverage beyond Part A and Part B, and understand your options before enrolling. In this post, we will focus on questions surrounding Medicare Supplement Insurance.

What Are Medicare Part B Premiums and Deductibles?

Medicare Part B helps cover medically necessary services, such as doctor’s services and outpatient care. It also helps cover some preventive services as well, such as a one-time “welcome to Medicare” physical exam, flu and pneumococcal shots, cardiovascular screenings, cancer screenings, diabetes screenings, and much more. However, before Medicare will pay for its share of covered benefits, beneficiaries must first pay certain out-of-pocket costs, and beneficiaries may also be responsible for some cost sharing of these services and supplies. This post will focus on two types of Medicare Part B out-of-pocket costs: premiums and deductibles.

Medicare and Myeloma FAQ | Myeloma Action Team

. Medicare Advantage plans are private health insurance plans that replace traditional Medicare coverage.  There are many types of plans, which cover hospital and doctor services; most offer drug coverage as well.  Under Medicare Advantage plans, the health plan pays health care providers, not the federal government.  Some people pick Medicare Advantage plans because they offer benefits like vision or dental not covered under traditional Medicare.  Others may pick a Medicare Advantage plan so they can stick with a particular plan network (for example, if they had a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan before retirement, and want to keep the same sort of plan afterwards).

Obamacare FAQ: Navigating Covered California’s health insurance exchange

Q: How does the law advantage everyone? A: Some key provisions of the law is insurers will no longer be able to deny you coverage because of a pre-existing medical condition – be it back pain, an STD, or cancer. You can’t be booted out of your insurance because you get sick. Your child can stay on your policy until their 26th birthday. Each policy must provide certain essential benefits, like hospitalization, prescription drugs and maternity care. They also must provide certain preventive care, such as some cancer screenings,without charging you a co-pay or deductible. Lastly, insurance companies can no longer impose lifetime caps on coverage, which is important for those with costly medical conditions.

It does. Currently, Medicare beneficiaries who earn more than $85,000 ($170,000 for a couple) pay more for their Medicare Part B premiums, which cover physician and outpatient services. The health law brought that same sliding-scale approach to beneficiaries’ prescription drug coverage in Medicare Part D for those with incomes of more than $85,000 ($170,000 for a couple). Those income thresholds will be frozen through 2019.

Jimmo v. Sebelius, the Improvement Standard Case FAQs 

A:   Yes.  The Settlement Agreement goes back to the date the case was filed, January 18, 2011. The Agreement establishes a process called "re-review" for Medicare beneficiaries who received a denial of skilled nursing facility care, home health care, or out-patient therapy services (physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech therapy). After the government completes the revision of its policy and guidelines, and educates Medicare decision-makers, individuals will be able to get a re-review of these claims.  The denial must have come from Medicare and must be for services that were actually received, but not paid for by Medicare.  The Medicare denial must have become final and non-appealable after January 18, 2011 and before the end of the educational campaign (expected to be by the end of 2013).  This means that claims must have been submitted to Medicare and denied, and the normal deadline for further appeal must have expired,  The beneficiary may have tried appealing the denial through the regular Medicare appeal system; it does not matter at which level the beneficiary stopped as long as the outcome is a denial and the deadline for further appeal has passed.

Arizona Seeks Seniors to Battle Medicare Fraud

PHOENIX, AZ — (Marketwired) — 09/26/13 — Confusion around Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act is creating a golden opportunity for scam artists who are always looking for new ways to prey on our state’s vulnerable senior population. To help fight this battle, Arizona is ramping up its efforts to recruit seniors who will serve as volunteers for the statewide Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) project. Arizona’s SMP project is part of a nationwide Administration on Aging (AoA) initiative that enlists retired and semi retired senior volunteers to combat Medicare fraud by educating and counseling beneficiaries to be alert and aware of scam activity.

AARP Arizona Hands Off Social Security and Medicare / Public News Service

PHOENIX, Ariz. – AARP state leaders from across the country, including Arizona, met with congressional delegations in Washington, D.C., this week, urging them to keep Medicare and Social Security off the table in the heated talks about raising the federal debt ceiling. Former AARP Arizona state president Ritch Steven says Social Security did not cause the nation’s budget problem, and should not be weakened to fix it. Instead, Steven says, Congress should look at cutting waste and fraud, closing tax loopholes and implementing health care reform. “We need to take the Affordable Care Act that has been passed and let it work as the Congressional Budget Office said it would work. It is projected to save a significant sum of money.” AARP Arizona plans a series of events to hear from seniors on whether cuts to Social Security and Medicare should be considered as part of the debt-ceiling debate. The first event is 9 a.m. this coming Wednesday in Prescott at the Hassayampa Inn. Other events are planned for Tucson and Phoenix. Details are available on the Arizona page at www.aarp.org. Steven predicts grave consequences for many of the 1 million Arizonans who rely on Social Security if benefits are cut as part of a debt-ceiling deal, or if the impasse results in August checks being delayed. “About one-third of these Social Security recipients every month receive a check that is virtually 90 percent or more of their income. If they don’t receive a check, I don’t know how they’re going to pay for their health care and their rent and their food.” Seniors also face a bleak future if the Medicare cuts envisioned in Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget proposal come to pass, Steven warns. The plan would replace the current full medical coverage with a fixed-amount voucher for seniors to buy insurance. “Currently, Medicare recipients pay about 25 percent of their income for health-care services, and under the Ryan proposal, they will pay about 68 percent.” Steven says cutting Social Security and Medicare would also have a strong, negative impact on Arizona’s overall economy. Figures from Families USA show that even a five-percent cut in Medicare would cost Arizona $325 million in health care, $690 million in business activity and more than 5,000 jobs.

Elder Care Management Arizona

You have probably heard that a key part of the new healthcare law, the Health Insurance Marketplace, will begin on October 1. Many seniors are concerned about whether this component of the new health law (“Obamacare”) will affect their Medicare benefits, and about what they should do. Here is a brief overview: Q: How will the Health Insurance Marketplace that starts in 2014 affect my Medicare coverage?  The Health Insurance Marketplace is designed to help people who don’t have any health insurance. You have health insurance through Medicare. The Marketplace won’t have any effect on your Medicare coverage. Your Medicare benefits aren’t changing. No matter how you get Medicare, whether through Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan, you’ll still have the same benefits and security you have now, and you won’t have to make any changes. The Marketplace provides new health insurance options for many Americans. If you have family and friends who don’t have health insurance, tell them to visit HealthCare.gov to learn more about their options. Q: Do I need to do anything with Marketplace plans during Medicare Open Enrollment (October 15 – December 7, 2013)?  Medicare’s Open Enrollment isn’t part of the new Health Insurance Marketplace. It’s against the law for someone who knows that you have Medicare to sell you a Marketplace plan. Medicare Open Enrollment (October 15 – December 7, 2013) is the time when all people with Medicare are encouraged to review their current health and prescription drug coverage, including any changes in costs, coverage and benefits that will take effect next year. If you want to change your coverage for next year, this is the time to do it. If you’re satisfied that your current coverage will continue to meet your needs for next year, you don’t need to do anything. For more information on Medicare Open Enrollment, visit Medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE. Note: The Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment period (October 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014) overlaps with the Medicare Open Enrollment period (October 15 – December 7, 2013). Therefore, people with Medicare who are looking to make Medicare coverage changes should make sure that they are reviewing Medicare plans and not Marketplace options. Q: What should I do if I’m contacted about signing up for a health plan?

Arizona Medicare Recipients Are Not Unlike Seniors In The Rest Of The Country

Various additional types of plans are possible depending on the needs and requirements of each individual senior with special insurance plans that are called Medicare supplement or Medigap plans, which are standardized with all insurance carriers and identified by different letters of the alphabet using A – L that classify the types of coverage. One very critical coverage that must be addressed and included for each individual is prescription drug coverage that is not included in any of these types of plans. Everyone should understand that the right tools are available to help empower you to take charge of your health and have access to resources to help you make the right types of choices, since your health care is very important.

Do I need to sign up for a Medicare Drug Plan?

A common question we often receive at our call center is whether Medicare beneficiaries need to sign up for prescription drug coverage. The short answer is no. Joining a Medicare drug plan is optional and not a requirement. However, Medicare requires all beneficiaries to have creditable prescription drug coverage or face a late enrollment penalty. If you have Original Medicare coverage and would like coverage for your prescription drugs, you may want to consider signing up for a Medicare Part D plan as Part A and Part B do not cover most medications.

Oklahoma Eliminates Medicare Renewal Training Requirement

Effective July 14, 2013, Oklahoma producers who sell, solicit, or negotiate Medicare Advantage (including private fee for service plans) or Medicare Prescription Drug products and plans are no longer required to complete four (4) hours of Medicare Advantage or Medicare Prescription Drug product continuing education each biennial renewal period.  Due to this change, all courses currently approved for the Medicare renewal requirement will remain the same with the current course number and course category as the course applies to a producer’s general continuing education requirement.  As courses are submitted for renewal, the course category will be changed to Producer General and a new course number will be assigned and emailed to the CE Provider contact.

LIVE from MGMA13: Medicare ACOs Share Their Real

Nuckolls: For our ACO, with 11,000 members, we must show savings of greater than 2.9 percent before we are to achieve savings. Some of the strategies include how do we reduce ER visits and unnecessary hospitalizations? Having one hospital, we have it a little easier than others. We have someone who looks at emergency department (ED) summaries and admission summaries every day to look for opportunities. And we have found many opportunities, where patients can go to the doctor rather than the ER. Once we see those things, we can create the right culture. The more access you have for patients, the better—they don’t want to go to the ER and wait for six hours.

ObamaCare Clusterfuck: Why does Libby, Montana, get Medicare for All when the rest of us have to settle for ObamaCare?

After his own constituents in Libby, Mont., became uninsurable by private insurance due to industrial pollution with carcinogens and were unable to get the courts to hold the polluters responsible, [Senator Max] Baucus came to the rescue. He simply tucked a little provision into the massive health reform bill making affected Montanans eligible for — you guessed it — Medicare.

How Libby, Montana, Got Medicare for All | MyFDL

Less than two months after the passage of the health reform bill on March 23, 2010, Nancy Berryhill of the Social Security Administration in Denver joined personally in setting up an office in Libby to sign up these newly eligible people.  “This is a new thing,” Berryhill told the Missoulian.  “No other group like this has ever been selected to receive Medicare.”  Berryhill issued a nationwide alert to inform anyone who had lived or stayed in Lincoln County of their eligibility.  She opened a storefront in Libby at the old downtown city hall where she signed up 60 people on the first day.  She plastered the towns of Whitefish and Eureka with pamphlets explaining the program and added three new staffers to the office in Kalispell.

Health Law Expands Medicare To Montana Asbestos Patients

That program was set up because the Grace medical plan failed to cover everyone who needed help, said Benefield, who also been a leading advocate to get help for the town’s residents. The Grace program hires its own doctors to independently verify if applicants have the type of asbestos-related disease connected to the Libby mine. The government program doesn’t have this independent verification process. Applicants merely have to submit information from their own doctor certifying they had asbestos-related disease.

Dark side of the U.S. oil boom: Small Montana towns buckle under weight of added costs

Fairview is one of a half-dozen bucolic farming towns in eastern Montana transformed over the past 18 months into bedroom communities for workers toiling in the Bakken oil patch. Unlike North Dakota cities that reap tax money from oil production to help keep pace with double-digit growth, Montana municipalities get next to nothing. The towns’ new reality illustrates the tradeoffs that come with the energy boom and how the drilling that showered riches on its neighbour poses challenges in Montana.

As Insurance Exchange Launches, State’s Consumer Protection Office Offers Tips to Avoid Scams

• Educate yourself. Go to www.healthcare.gov. You can learn more about protecting yourself from scams here. • Be cautious of sharing personal information such as your social security number or any bank account numbers. • Do not give your Social Security number, or any bank account or credit card information, to any company that you did not contact. Do not offer this information to companies you heard about through unsolicited advertisements. • Do not give out personal health history or share current health conditions or treatments you are or ever have received. No one should ask you for this. • You do not have to pay application or “sign-up” fees. The new health care exchange has trained assisters that will help you for free. • If you are on Medicare, you do not need a new card. If you are told you do, it could be a scam. Do not share your Medicare number with anyone who contacts you telling you that you need a new Medicare card. • If information is not being clearly explained to you, ask questions until you get a clear answer. Do not sign up for something you do not understand. • Do not respond to callers, emails, text messages, or advertisements that ask for your personal or financial information. If you get a message and are concerned about your account status, call the number on the back your credit or debit card. • Never send or wire money to someone you do not know. It is best to do business with companies or websites that you know and trust. When buying items try to use payment options that offer protection such as credit cards. Avoid cash and wire transfer services.

FAQ: What is Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Insurance?

Medicare Supplement Insurance, also known as Medigap or MedSup coverage, complements Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and Part B) by filling in the coverage gaps of some health care costs that are not covered under those plans. Medigap is an optional program, which means that Medicare does not pay for any part of this coverage. Medigap coverage is purchased through private insurance companies at the cost of the beneficiary.

Medicare: Original, Replacement, Supplemental and Extra Crispy

Medicare Part B also covers outpatient hospital services including Emergency Room Visits and Hospital Observation. Generally, this means the patient pays a copayment for each individual outpatient hospital service. This amount may vary by service. The copayment for a single outpatient hospital service can’t be more than the inpatient hospital deductible. However, the total copayment for all outpatient services may be more than the inpatient hospital deductible. Part B also covers most of the doctor services when you’re a hospital outpatient. The patient pays 20% of the Medicare-approved amount after they pay the Part B deductible. Generally, the prescription and over-the-counter drugs received in an outpatient setting (like an emergency department), sometimes called “self-administered drugs,” aren’t covered by Part B. Also, for safety reasons, many hospitals have policies that don’t allow patients to bring prescription or other drugs from home. If the patient has Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D), these drugs may be covered under certain circumstances. The patient likely will need to pay out-of-pocket for these drugs and submit a claim to their drug plan for a refund.

Utah Medicare Supplements

A Utah Medigap (also called Utah Medicare Supplement Insurance) policy is private health insurance that is designed to supplement Original Medicare. This means it helps pay some of the health care costs (gaps) that Original Medicare doesn’t cover (like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles). If you are in Original Medicare and you have a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amounts for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share. (Note: Medicare doesn’t pay any of the costs for you to get a Medigap policy.)

Original Medicare vs. Medigap: Which is Right for You

Unlike Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D, which have the same enrollment period called the Annual Enrollment Period (from October 15 to December 7 each year), Medicare Supplement Insurance has its own enrollment period. It spans six months and begins the month that you turn 65 and have Medicare Part B. This is the optimal time to join a plan because you do not have to submit to Medical Underwriting, which is when your medical history is reviewed and you can be charged more for insurance or even be declined coverage.

Most of the other changes to Medicare affect how Medicare pays health insurance companies, hospitals and other health care providers for the care received by people on Medicare.  For example, the law reduced what Medicare pays HMOs and other private Medicare Advantage plans.  Other changes are designed to get hospitals, doctors and other health care providers to improve the quality of care they provide for people on Medicare, such as by encouraging providers to work more closely together to coordinate care for patients when they are discharged from the hospital and by taking steps to prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions.  Most of these efforts are in the early stages, and it will take time to see what kind of impact they have.

Medicare is available to anyone who is age 65 or older, who is eligible for Medicare. People are eligible to sign up and enroll for a Medicare Supplement, or a Medigap, policy 3 months prior to the month they turn 65 and the three months after the person turns age 65. The person is able to qualify regardless of his or her health history.

Affordable Care: parent on Medicare/Medicaid, son needs options

Missouri is not planning to expand Medicaid, so you are also correct that you will not qualify for that.  Many health economists believe that all states will eventually take the Medicaid expansion.  So, perhaps in the future, you will be able to apply for Medicaid.  In your state, you will also not qualify for subsidies to purchase a plan on the health insurance exchanges.  It’s a strange situation in these states: people earning less than 133% of Federal Poverty ($15,282 for a one-person household) cannot get subsidies.  People earning 133% or more do get subsidies.

Chart of the Day: Public Ignorance About Medicare is Really, Really High

It also turns out that when you ask people why Medicare costs are rising, they rate fraud and poor management at the top and new technology at the bottom. The truth, again, is just the opposite. Medicare has some fraud problems, but they’re fairly modest. It’s basically a pretty well managed program. New drugs and new treatments, however, are responsible for nearly half of the increase in Medicare costs over the past few decades. It’s the #1 cost driver by a ton. Adrianna McIntyre has the details here.

How Does Obamacare Affect Medicare?

The myth about Obamacare ending Medicare is entirely false, as Nicole Duritz, vice president of Health Education and Outreach with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), explained to U.S. News and World Report. If anything, “Medicare’s guaranteed benefits are protected in ways that they hadn’t been protected in the past” under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Duritz said.

Daily Kos: Paul Ryan adds Medicare and Medicaid to the ransom note

So far from taking Obamacare off the table, Ryan says he was expanding the playing field to include Medicare and Medicaid as well. Sure, he acknowledged that Obamacare can’t be fully repealed through through the shutdown threat, but: “We’re not saying stop going after Obamacare,” he said. “We’re saying add these other things to this list because we think they’re in this country’s interest, and by the way, in some of these instances, entitlement reform, I think the president might be willing to do this.” When he wrote the op-ed, Ryan might have been trying to limit the scope of the GOP’s demands. But faced with little more than Twitter backlash and a question from Antonin Scalia’s favorite news source, he’s now written an even bigger check for the GOP leadership to cash.
