MEDICARE Part A, B, C, & D PREMIUMS, DEDUCTIBLES FOR 2011

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Part A premiums are decreasing because spending in 2010 was lower than expected and the Affordable Care Act implemented policies that lower Part A spending due to payment efficiencies and efforts related to waste, fraud and abuse.  Part B premiums are increasing because of growth in the use of services like outpatient hospital care, home health and physician-administered drugs.  In addition, the premium accounts for a likely Congressional action to avert a precipitous decrease in physician payments, which the Administration supports, and has occurred every year since 2003.  The Administration is committed to permanent reform of the physician payment formula. By law, the standard premium is set to cover one-fourth of the average cost of Part B services incurred by beneficiaries aged 65 and over, plus a contingency margin. The contingency margin is an amount appropriate to (i) cover incurred-but-unpaid claims costs, (ii) provide for possible variation between actual and projected costs, and (iii) amortize any surplus assets or unfunded liabilities.  The remaining Part B costs are financed by Federal general revenues.  (In 2011, $2.5 billion in Part B expenditures will be financed by the new fees on manufacturers and importers of brand-name prescription drugs under the Affordable Care Act.  The revenue from these fees reduces the standard Part B premium by $0.90.)

Annual Statistical Supplement, 2011

Beginning January 1, 2006, upon voluntary enrollment in either a stand-alone PDP or an integrated Medicare Advantage plan that offers Part D coverage in its benefit, subsidized prescription drug coverage. Most FDA-approved drugs and biologicals are covered. However, plans may set up formularies for their drug coverage, subject to certain statutory standards. (Drugs currently covered in Parts A and B remain covered there.) Part D coverage can consist of either standard coverage or an alternative design that provides the same actuarial value. (For an additional premium, plans may also offer supplemental coverage exceeding the value of basic coverage.) Standard Part D coverage is defined for 2006 as having a $250 deductible, with 25 percent coinsurance (or other actuarially equivalent amounts) for drug costs above the deductible and below the initial coverage limit of $2,250. The beneficiary is then responsible for all costs until the $3,600 out-of-pocket limit (which is equivalent to total drug costs of $5,100) is reached. For higher costs, there is catastrophic coverage; it requires enrollees to pay the greater of 5 percent coinsurance or a small copay ($2 for generic or preferred multisource brand and $5 for other drugs). After 2006, these benefit parameters are indexed to the growth in per capita Part D spending (see Table 2.C1). In determining out-of-pocket costs, only those amounts actually paid by the enrollee or another individual (and not reimbursed through insurance) are counted; the exception is cost-sharing assistance from Medicare’s low-income subsidies (certain beneficiaries with low incomes and modest assets will be eligible for certain subsidies that eliminate or reduce their Part D premiums, cost-sharing, or both) and from State Pharmacy Assistance Programs. A beneficiary premium, representing 25.5 percent of the cost of basic coverage on average, is required (except for certain low-income beneficiaries, as previously mentioned, who may pay a reduced or no premium). For PDPs and the drug portion of Medicare Advantage plans, the premium will be determined by a bid process; each plan’s premium will be 25.5 percent of the national weighted average plus or minus the difference between the plan’s bid and the average. To help them gain experience with the Medicare population, plans will be protected by a system of risk corridors, which allow Part D to assist with unexpected costs and to share in unexpected savings; after 2007, the risk corridors became less protective. To encourage employer and union plans to continue prescription drug coverage to Medicare retirees, subsidies to these plans are authorized; the plan must meet or exceed the value of standard Part D coverage, and the subsidy pays 28 percent of the allowable costs associated with enrollee prescription drug costs between a specified cost threshold ($250 in 2006, indexed thereafter) and a specified cost limit ($5,000 in 2006, indexed thereafter).

2011 Medicare Part D Program Compared to 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007

Pharmaceutical manufacturers will be required to provide certain beneficiaries access to discount prices for certain brand drugs purchased under Medicare Part D. The manufacturer discount prices will be equal to 50% of the plan’s negotiated price defined (minus any applicable dispensing fees). These discount prices must be applied prior to any prescription drug coverage or financial assistance provided under other health benefit plans or programs and after any supplemental benefits provided under the Part D plan. The discounted prices will be charged at the pharmacy (point-of-sale). The beneficiary will not have to do additional paperwork, etc. to receive the benefit. These manufacturer discount prices will be made available to Part D enrollees who are in the coverage gap or donut hole (they have reached or exceeded the initial coverage limit and have incurred costs below the annual out-of-pocket threshold). Medicare beneficiaries will not be eligible to receive these discount prices if they are enrolled in a qualified retiree prescription drug plan or are eligible for the low-income subsidy. The costs paid by manufacturers towards the negotiated prices of drugs covered under this manufacturer discount program shall be considered incurred costs for eligible beneficiaries and applied towards their out-of-pocket threshold. This means that the total negotiated retail drug price will be applied to the TrOOP and will count toward getting out of the doughnut hole.

Jim Thomason’s “The Business of People”: High Deductible Plans and Medicare Part B Don’t Go Together

Now before your eyes gloss over, let’s walk through it. Medicare pays 80% (you pay 20%) after a $162 deductible. Medicare is always the payer of last resort, but it will pay its portion between the $162 Medicare deductible and the $1,200 Blue Cross deductible. That totals $830 in benefits ($1,200 – $162 deductible = $1,038 x 80%). After you’ve reached $1,200 in medical bills your Blue Cross insurance kicks in at 80%, making Medicare secondary. In the coordination of coverage rules for Medicare, it will pay whatever Blue Cross does up to the limits of Medicare’s coverage. Because Blue Cross pays 80%, and Medicare pays 80%, Medicare will pay nothing else. You pay 20% until your total out of pocket reaches $8,800 (a rarity)and then Blue Cross pays 100%. The coordination of these two coverages means that you’ll pay $567 more in Part B premium that you’ll ever receive in benefits. Bottom line: if you have Parts A and B you don’t need to elect our coverage. If you have Part A and want a Blue Cross High Deductible Plan you should not elect Medicare Part B.

2012 Medicare Part B Premium, Deductible Will Be Lower Than Expected

By law, the standard Part B premium is set to represent 25 percent of expected costs in the program for the following year. So beneficiaries not protected by the COLA freeze bore the brunt of higher costs over the past two years. But in 2012, everyone will share those costs. That, together with lower-than-expected cost increases in the program — in part because of changes brought about by the new health care law, the Affordable Care Act — accounts for the relatively small increase in the standard premium, Medicare officials say.

Identifying, Reporting & Preventing Medicare Fraud

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

One way to detect and prevent Medicare fraud is to keep a record whenever you visit a doctor or health provider, including the date you received the service, the provider name, the service or equipment received, and the amount charged. Save all the statements your doctor sends and compare them against your Medicare claims information. If you have Original Medicare, you can find information on your Medicare claims by logging into MyMedicare.gov or checking your Medicare Summary Notice, which is a notice Medicare mails out every three months.

Medicare Facts, information, pictures

Medicare is organized into parts A through D, each of which corresponds to a different service type with a different financing scheme. Part A is a program of inpatient hospital insurance available to all Medicare beneficiaries; there is no premium, although beneficiaries are required to pay deductibles and co-payments when they use covered services. Part A is financed through a payroll tax of 2.9 percent, paid half by employers and half by employees. Part B provides coverage for outpatient services, including physician visits, therapies, and laboratory tests. Enrollment is voluntary, and beneficiaries pay a monthly premium for coverage and deductibles and co-payments at the point of service. Part B is financed through premiums and general tax revenues. Part C concerns itself with managed care plans. Part D, passed in 2003, represents the largest expansion of Medicare benefits since 1965; as of January 1, 2006, it covers some of the cost of prescription drugs for beneficiaries who enroll. In a departure from earlier Medicare policy, enrollees receive Part D benefits through private insurance plans that offer coverage for different drugs (within limits set by the government) at different premium amounts. Like Part B, Part D is financed through premiums and general revenue funds. Medicare beneficiaries may also purchase private supplementary, or Medigap, insurance policies to cover deductibles, co-payments, and uncovered services.

Medicare Supplement Insurance

* Plan F also has an option called a high-deductible Plan F. This high-deductible plan pays the same or offers the same benefits as Plan F after one has paid a calendar year $2,180 deductible. Benefits from high-deductible Plan F will not begin until out-of-pocket expenses are $2,180. Out-of-pocket expenses for this deductible are expenses that would ordinarily be paid by the policy. These expenses include the Medicare deductibles for Part A and Part B, but do not include the plan’s separate foreign travel emergency deductible. ** Hospital benefits must be provided by facilities participating with Medicare. Payments are limited to the reasonable charge as determined by Medicare. *** After 90 days of hospitalization, Medicare benefits are paid from a one-time lifetime reserve of 60 additional days (days 91-150) which are not renewable each benefit period. See your Outline of Coverage for details and limitations of these benefits.

Remember, Florida Medicare Advantage plans are also called Part C.  These plans are offered through private insurance companies that are approved by Medicare.  These plans have premium costs (in addition to your part B premium) as little as $0 each month.  Having no additional premium can lead to questions about the benefits you get.  One key point of Florida Medicare Advantage plans is that they carry a mamimum out of pocket which means you will only be responsible for any co-payments to a set maximum amount during the plan year.

2015 Medicare Advantage Plans in Florida

Larger cities with more medical providers and a larger percentage of retired people probably also enjoy more competition between insurers, and Medicare recipients have more choices. It may be true that residents of Miami will have more choices than residents of Jacksonville, Tampa, Saint Petersburg, or an even smaller town. People who live in more sparsely populated areas might be satisfied with a more flexible plan than a zero monthly premium HMO. On the other hand, cities tend to have higher medical costs, so plans may be more expensive or require members to pay a larger share of out-of-pocket costs.
