Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Make sure the drugs you need are on the plan’s drug list, called its formulary. A drug plan won’t help pay for medicines that aren’t on its list. Be thorough and check the details. Even if a drug is on the formulary, look closely to make sure it’s covered at the dose and quantity you need. Also look to see if the plan requires you to get prior approval from your doctor for the medicine before they help pay for it.

Medicare Part D in Indiana

It’s important for you to know that if you remain without creditable drug coverage for 63 days or more after your Initial Enrollment Period ends, and you decide to get this benefit later, you may be subject to a late-enrollment penalty for Medicare Part D in Indiana, as you would anywhere else in the United States. The penalty is calculated using 1% of the national base beneficiary premium, and the number of full months you were eligible for Medicare Part D but didn’t join. This amount is added to your Medicare Part D monthly premium. The national base beneficiary premium may increase each year, which means your late-enrollment penalty may also increase annually.

Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans Coverage and Comparison

Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans, also known as “PDPs,” are stand-alone prescription drug plans that are sold by private insurance companies with a Medicare contract. Medicare beneficiaries can sign up for a PDP if they would like to add Part D drug coverage to their Original Medicare coverage. Certain Medicare Advantage plans, such as Cost Plans, Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plans, and Medical Saving Account (MSA) plans might allow you to add a stand-alone PDP to this coverage, although these situations may vary. Anyone enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Medicare Part B is eligible to enroll in a Medicare Part D plan.

What Does Medicare Cover for Nursing Homes?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Medicare will only consider coverage for nursing home care after a person has had a three-day hospital visit. The patient must enter the facility within 30 days of the stay, and it has to be a facility approved to take Medicare. Medicare pays 100 percent of the costs for the first 20 days. A coinsurance is required for days 21 through 100, which is the extent of the coverage. A person’s coverage can be eliminated if she refuses treatment while in the home.

Nursing Homes and Medicare

Nursing homes are not the same as assisted living or independent living facilities. Independent living facilities are usually apartments or homes for seniors who need little or no help or care. Assisted living facilities offer a level of care that’s between independent living and skilled nursing. Assisted living usually does not include medical care. Medicare generally does not cover care at assisted or independent living facilities.

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.

Medicare in West Virginia

Medicare Advantage Organizations and Prescription Drug Plan Sponsors must have a contract with Medicare in order to sell Medicare insurance plans (such as a Medicare HMO or a Medicare Part D Plan. Depending on the terms of the contract between the plan and Medicare, not every plan is available statewide or in all service areas. Each year, the plan must renew their contract with Medicare, so the availability of a plan in a specific service area is subject to change as a result of the annual contract renewal.
