What is Original Medicare?

Unless you choose otherwise, you will have Original Medicare. You can instead decide to get your Medicare benefits from a Medicare Advantage Plan, also called a Medicare private health plan. Remember, you still have Medicare if you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan. This means that you must still pay your monthly Part B premium (and your Part A premium, if you have one). Each Medicare Advantage Plan must provide all Part A and Part B services offered by Original Medicare, but can do so with different rules, costs, and restrictions that can affect how and when you receive care.

Original Medicare, Part A and Part B

Each year, you generally must pay a set amount (a deductible) for your health care before Medicare pays its share. Then, Medicare pays its share, and you pay your share (coinsurance) for covered services and supplies. If you have Medicare Part A, you can generally get the covered services listed in Part A Benefits. If you have Medicare Part B, you can generally get the covered services listed in Part B Benefits. You usually pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part B. You generally don’t need to file Medicare claims. Providers (like doctors, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and home health agencies) and suppliers are required by law to file Medicare claims for the covered services and supplies you get.

Medicare Unmasked: Behind the Numbers

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

This project uses data made public by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It shows the dollar amounts that doctors and other medical providers received in Medicare reimbursements in 2012 and 2013, along with other data including their specialties. Only procedures which providers performed on more than 10 Medicare patients were included in the data released. There is some information CMS hasn’t provided. In some cases, procedures attributed to a specific physician may have been performed by other people under that doctor’s supervision. The data doesn’t include information on patients nor does it show doctors’ billings related to durable medical equipment.

CHAMPVA SUPPLEMENTAL INSURANCE

An eligible CHAMPVA sponsor may be entitled to receive medical care through the VA health care system based on his or her own veteran status. Additionally, as the result of a recent policy change, if the eligible CHAMPVA sponsor is the spouse of another eligible CHAMPVA sponsor, both may now be eligible for CHAMPVA benefits. In each instance where the eligible spouse requires medical attention, he or she may choose the VA health care system or coverage under CHAMPVA for his/her health care needs. If you have been previously denied CHAMPVA benefits and you believe you would now be qualified, please submit an application following the guidelines as listed on the “How to apply” section.

Health Care Benefits for Dependents (CHAMPVA)

The Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) (CHAMPVA) is a comprehensive health care benefits program in which the VA shares the cost of covered health care services and supplies with eligible beneficiaries. The program is administered by the Chief Business Office Purchased Care located in Denver, Colorado. Due to the similarity between CHAMPVA and the TRICARE program (sometimes referred to by its old name, CHAMPUS) the two are often mistaken for each other. CHAMPVA is a VA program, whereas TRICARE is a DoD regionally-managed health care program for active duty and retired members of the uniformed services, their families, and survivors. In some cases a person may appear eligible for either program. However, anyone eligible for TRICARE is not eligible for CHAMPVA.

CHAMPVA Supplemental Insurance

Yes, if you live or travel overseas (excluding Iraq, North Korea and Cuba), the supplement provides the same benefits as if you were in the U.S. Reimbursement for health care claims in foreign countries is based on reasonable and customary billed amounts. Your deductible and cost share will be the same as if you were in the U.S. Medicare does not provide benefits for services provided overseas. However, if you are 65 or over, you must enroll in Medicare Part B. CHAMPVA will continue as your primary benefit option for the period of time you are overseas. As a result, the CHAMPVA Supplement Plan will also continue. You will receive the same level of benefits provided to those under age 65.

Original Medicare (Part A and B) Eligibility and Enrollment

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

To be eligible for premium-free Part A, an individual must be entitled to receive Medicare based on their own earnings or those of a spouse, parent, or child. To receive premium-free Part A, the worker must have a specified number of quarters of coverage (QCs) and file an application for Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefits. The exact number of QCs required is dependent on whether the person is filing for Part A on the basis of age, disability, or End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). QCs are earned through payment of payroll taxes under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) during the person’s working years. Most individuals pay the full FICA tax so the QCs they earn can be used to meet the requirements for both monthly Social Security benefits and premium-free Part A.
