Your doctor or other health care provider may recommend you get services more often than Medicare covers. Or, they may recommend services that Medicare doesn’t cover. If this happens, you may have to pay some or all of the costs. It’s important to ask questions so you understand why your doctor is recommending certain services and whether Medicare will pay for them.

Does Medicare Cover Eye Exams? (with Pictures)

Medicare also covers eye surgery to alleviate glaucoma, cataracts or other medical problems. If your doctor prescribed an artificial lens for cataracts, Medicare covers the cost of necessary eyeglasses or contacts; the insurance generally will also pay for an eye exam for vision problems that may indicate a serious medical condition. The coverage is good even if the doctor diagnoses a non-visual cause for the problem.

What is the Medicare coverage for eye care and eyeglasses?

A prescription order signed by your doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist) must be on file with the supplier. Suppliers must be enrolled in Medicare and must meet strict standards to qualify for a Medicare supplier number. Medicare won’t pay your claim if your supplier doesn’t have a number, even if your supplier is a large chain or department store that sells more than just durable medical equipment (DME).

Medicare Supplement Quotes in Texas

First, we hope this website provides you a better understanding of what is about to happen like the fact that regardless of what you do or don’t do most if not all seniors automatically become enrolled in Part A of Medicare, this is the part of Medicare that provides your basic coverage. Also you should know that you should automatically have eligibility in Part B of Medicare, that’s the part that provides out patient benefits like doctor charges and testing. There is a small fee for Part B that is deducted from your Social Security benefits. We have provided more detailed information on Texas Medicare Eligibility to hopefully assist in understanding more about it.

What’s Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Some Medigap policies also offer coverage for services that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S. If you have Original Medicare and you buy a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share.
Source: medicare.gov

Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Insurance Plans

MedSupp plans can help pay Original Medicare’s copayments and deductibles. Each type of plan offers a different level of coverage, and is named with a different letter (such as Plan A). The plans are standardized, so that all plans of the same letter offer the same benefits. In other words, the benefits for a Medicare Supplement Plan D enrollee in Rhode Island are the same for a Medicare Supplement Plan D enrollee in Tennessee. However, the premiums can differ among these private insurance companies.

Medicare Supplement Insurance and Plans

Medicare is the federal program the vast majority of Americans 65 and older depend on for their healthcare. People under 65 with disabilities and individuals with end-stage renal disease can also qualify. Medicare is commonly divided into four parts. Original Medicare Part A and Part B help pay costs for hospital care and medical expenses, respectively. Specifically, Part A pays for medically-necessary inpatient hospital services, skilled nursing facility care after a hospital stay, certain home healthcare, and hospice care. Part A does not pay for private hospital rooms, surgery that is not deemed medically-necessary, most care received outside the United States, unskilled personal care, and a variety of other services. Part B, meanwhile, pays only 80% of most Medicare-covered medical costs. Deductible, copayment, and coinsurance costs associated with Original Medicare add up quickly for many people.

Compare Medicare Advantage & Supplemental Plans

Medicare Advantage insurance is offered by private insurance companies with a Medicare contract, and replaces Original Medicare Part A and Part B. You must continue to pay your Part B premiums. Medicare Advantage plans typically offer additional benefit options and have less cost-sharing than Original Medicare, and you may have to pay a monthly premium in return for the extra benefits. Medicare Advantage plans come in a variety of formats, such as HMO, PPO and PFFS plans, as well as special needs plans. Medicare beneficiaries can enroll in Medicare Advantage plans if they have Medicare Part A and Part B, but only during designated enrollment periods. These enrollment periods change from time-to-time, so please call us to get the most-up-to-date information.

Dental Coverage Under Medicare

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

For complete dental coverage, you can shop online at www.ehealthinsurance.com to learn about and buy an individual dental insurance plan that fits your personal needs. You may also have group dental insurance available, if either you or your spouse is employed. Be sure to read the plans carefully. Some dental plans require you to stay within a network of dental care providers. The premiums may be a bit higher for this type of plan, but the costs are offset by lower out-of-pocket fees, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles, mainly because network dentists usually agree to charge discounted rates to members of the dental plan. Other plans let you go to any licensed dental professional, but you may have to pay more at the time of service.

How Can I Get Vision and Dental Coverage Under Medicare?

Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) plans are offered by private companies and include the same coverage as Original Medicare Parts A and B, plus a number of additional benefits that Original Medicare does not offer. Dental and vision care are often included in Medicare Advantage plans, and most plans also include prescription drug coverage. Some plans charge a premium, in addition to the Part B premium you pay to Medicare. Because Medicare Advantage plans are run privately, not all plans are available in all regions. You can find out what plans are available near you by using Medicare’s  plan finder, an online tool at Medicare.gov.
