Medicare Advantage Fact Sheet

Since 2006, Medicare has paid plans under a bidding process.  Plans submit “bids” based on estimated costs per enrollee for services covered under Medicare Parts A and B; all bids that meet the necessary requirements are accepted.  The bids are compared to benchmark amounts that are set by a formula established in statute and vary by county (or region in the case of regional PPOs).  The benchmarks are the maximum amount Medicare will pay a plan in a given area. If a plan’s bid is higher than the benchmark, enrollees pay the difference between the benchmark and the bid in the form of a monthly premium, in addition to the Medicare Part B premium.  If the bid is lower than the benchmark, the plan and Medicare split the difference between the bid and the benchmark; the plan’s share is known as a “rebate,” which must be used to provide supplemental benefits to enrollees.  Medicare payments to plans are then adjusted based on enrollees’ risk profiles.

Medicare and Medicaid Eligibility

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

i receive SSD they take around 75.00 a month out for part D and I do receive the extra help. But as of 2014 I have to now also pay co payments on my medicines. After part D is deducted I receive 850.30 a month. I am now on Medicare but it only pays 80% of other medical such as dr and hospital. 22.00 to 27.00 also comes out of that for medicine co pays. Then I also have the other 20% I have to pay my Dr. That I see once a month. I have found an apt for 695.00 that includes utilities. And 99.00 in food stamps. Apt not in real good area . And I cannot walk without a walker . I am 63 years old. Live alone is there any recourse that I have for any kind of supplements. Also have heart decease and now my teeth are in really bad shape and need new glasses. Is there any such program to get more help or supplements?

Medicare Eligibility When Disability Benefits Stop Due to Work

Hello. My SSDI payment (should) will stop because I had earnings over the limit for October, November and now December. I reported the increased earnings in October and they finally sent me the paperwork acknowledging my increase. I believe my work will continue at higher than SGA. I am now filling out the “work review” paperwork but have not received anything about a medical review yet. I am well past my TWP (ended in 2008) and the 36 month extended entitlement period. How quickly do they terminate (shut off) my Medicare? They still sent me a check in November so I know I will have to return the funds. I have still been using my Medicare insurance. But, I feel that I am back to work now and would no longer meet the disability requirements in a medical review (which is a very good thing!) So if I have to re-apply for Medicare since I am with in the 93 months I wouldn’t get it since I work above SGA and would not pass the medical review. Do they turn off my Medicare instantly or will it be good at least until they notify me they have terminated it or will they back date the termination to October 1 and deny any claims out there? Or, will it still be active while I go thru the current work review paperwork or while I go thru a future medical review? Thanks!

Costs in the coverage gap

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Mrs. Anderson reaches the coverage gap in her Medicare drug plan. She goes to her pharmacy to fill a prescription for a covered brand-name drug. The price for the drug is $60, and there’s a $2 dispensing fee that gets added to the cost. Mrs. Anderson will pay 47.5% of the plan’s cost for the drug ($60 x .475 = $28.50) plus 47.5% of the cost of the dispensing fee ($2 x .475 = $0.95), or a total of $29.45, for her prescription. $59.45 will be counted as out-of-pocket spending and will help Mrs. Anderson get out of the coverage gap because both the amount that Mrs. Anderson pays ($29.45) plus the manufacturer discount payment ($30.00) count as out-of-pocket spending. The remaining $2.55, which is 2.5% of the drug cost and 52.5% of the dispensing fee paid by the drug plan, isn’t counted toward Mrs. Anderson’s out-of-pocket spending.

Medicare Part D coverage gap

In 2006, the first year of operation for Medicare Part D, the donut hole in the defined standard benefit covered a range in true out-of-pocket expenses (TrOOP) costs from $750 to $3,600. (The first $750 of TrOOP comes from a $250 deductible phase, and $500 in the initial coverage limit, in which the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) covers 75 percent of the next $2,000.) In the first year of operation, there was a substantial reduction in out-of-pocket costs and a moderate increase in medication utilization among Medicare beneficiaries, although there was no evidence of improvement in emergency department use, hospitalizations, or preference-based health utility for those eligible for Part D.

Medicare Part D Doughnut Hole Is a Gap in Coverage

"If you have high drug costs, you may consider which plans offer additional coverage until you spend $3,600 out-of-pocket. In some plans, if your costs reach an initial coverage limit, then you pay 100% of your prescription costs. This is called the coverage gap. This "gap" in coverage is generally above $2,250 in total drug costs until you spend $3,600 out-of-pocket. Some plans might offer some coverage during the gap. Even in plans where you pay 100% of covered drug costs after a certain limit, you would still pay less for your prescriptions than you would without this drug coverage", according to Medicare.gov.

Medicare Part D Donut Hole – Prescription Drug Coverage Gap

Most Medicare Part D plans have a coverage gap, sometimes called the Medicare donut hole. This means that after you and your Medicare drug plan have spent a certain amount of money for covered prescription drugs, you then have to pay all costs out-of-pocket for the drugs, up to a certain limit. The yearly deductible, co-insurance, or co-payments, and what you pay while in the coverage gap, all count toward this out-of-pocket limit. The limit doesn’t include the drug plan’s premium.

Medicare Supplement Insurance

To help consumers understand and compare Medicare Supplement insurance plans (Medigap plans), the 10 available policies were standardized by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). These standards can be found in NAIC’s Medicare Supplement Insurance Minimum Standards Model Act. The 10 Medigap plans have letter designations ranging from A to N, each with a set of basic and extra benefits. The combination of benefits in each plan may not be altered by insurers, nor may the letter designations be changed. Three states – Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are referred to as waiver states because they are permitted by statute to have different standardized Medigap plans.

Medicare as a Secondary Insurance Customer

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Often policies have a tendency to overlap or duplicate each other. Take young person’s Medicare health care plans for instance:  often these can reduce the amount paid out by a percentage via a ‘reduction in benefits’ clause, particularly if they are protected under their parent or guardian’s plan. Should this be the case, a secondary insurance policy will pay the balance that is not paid by the primary insurance policy.
Source: bestmedicaresupplement.com

What Is The Best Secondary Insurance With Medicare?

To supplement Medicare it’s best to have a Medicare Supplement Plan. These are standardized plans in most states. The highest level of coverage is the Plan F Medicare Supplement. It pays 100% of the co-pays and deductibles for Medicare covered treatments. The others to consider are Plan G which is the same as Plan F except you pay your Medicare Part B deductible which is less than $150 per year currently. You will often save $200 to $300 annually on your premiums choosing a plan G supplement over a Plan F. You can also consider the Medicare Plan N Supplement for an even lower premium but you will take on more doctor co-pays and a few less benefits. There is a high deductible version of Plan F where you have a much lower premium but you pay the first $2,070 in expenses each year but are covered 100% for costs above that. Medicare and your supplement do not cover prescription medicines so most people buy a Medicare Part D plan for those. None of these plans cover dental or eye doctors so some people buy additional coverage for those. All companies sell the exact same standardized Medicare Supplement Plans so it is the easiest type of insurance to shop and compare and lower your cost. A Plan F with one company may be as much as $500 per year cheaper with a different company and the coverage is exactly the same. It’s best to use an insurance broker who sells for many companies rather than sign up directly through one specific company. When there is a rate increase (they ALL have them) your broker can just re-shop the plans for you and help you get back to a lower premium.

How Medicare works with other insurance

The BCRC will gather information about any conditional payments Medicare made related to your pending settlement, judgment, award, or other payment. Once a settlement, judgment, award or other payment is final, you or your representative should call the BCRC. The BCRC will get the final repayment amount (if any) on your case and issue a letter requesting repayment.

Medicare supplement plan insurance companies can only sell you a “modernized” Medicare supplemental insurance plan identified by letters A through N. Each modernized Medicare supplemental insurance plan must offer the same basic benefits, no matter which insurance company sells it.

Medicare Advantage plans come in a variety of formats, such as HMO, PPO and PFFS plans, as well as special needs plans.

Medicare Supplemental Insurance — Which policy is best?

Our recommendation: After picking the benefit combination (Plan A through L) that best suits your needs, buy the issue-age or community-rated Medigap policy with the lowest premium. Even though they are a bit more expensive at the start, your premiums won’t go up every year just because you get older. (AARP’s Medigap plans use a combination of issue-age and community-rated methods; their premiums don’t increase as you get older, but their younger retirees do receive a discount.)
