Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap) in Indiana

In order to join Medigap in Indiana, you must first be enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and Part B. The Medigap Open Enrollment Period starts the first day you are both age 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B, and it lasts for six months. This period is the best time to join a Medicare Supplement plan in Indiana. During the Open Enrollment Period, you can join any Medigap plan available in your area, with the insurance company of your choosing, and you cannot be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions or medical underwriting. There are generally no other enrollment periods besides your Medigap Open Enrollment Period, so if you decide to join Medigap in Indiana at a later date, you may be denied coverage or charged more for your insurance plan.

Medicare Supplement Plans in Indiana

A good time to sign up for a Medigap plan is during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period (OEP), a six-month period that starts the month that you are 65 years old and have Medicare Part B. If you sign up during this period, you’ll have a “guaranteed issue right” to acceptance into the plan; that is, you won’t be subject to medical underwriting. If you sign up during your Medigap OEP for a Medigap plan sold in your area, the Medigap insurance company offering the plan cannot deny you coverage even if you have health problems. The company also cannot charge a higher premium than it would to a beneficiary in good health.

Indiana Department of Insurance: Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement insurance is also called Medigap insurance because it covers the “gaps” in Medicare benefits, such as deductibles and copayments. Medicare Supplement insurance is a private health insurance policy purchased by a Medicare beneficiary. Federal and state law regulates Medicare Supplement policies. Only a Medicare Supplement policy, or a Medigap policy, will help fill gaps in Medicare benefits. Other kinds of insurance may help you pay out-of-pocket health care costs, but they do not qualify as true Medicare Supplement insurance. For example, an employer retirement health plan may pay for prescriptions, vision and dental services, but it may not pay for Medicare deductibles and copayments.

For all others, the standard Medicare Part B monthly premium will be $110.50 in 2016, which is a 15% increase over the 2009 premium.  The Medicare Part B premium is increasing in 2016 due to possible increases in Part B costs.  If your income is above $85,000 (single) or $170,000 (married couple), then your Medicare Part B premium may be higher than $110.50 per month.  For additional details, see the FAQ titled: "2016 Part B Premium Amounts for Persons with Higher Income Levels".

Most existing beneficiaries will be "held harmless" and will pay $104.90 in 2016. Beneficiaries not subject to the “hold harmless” provision will pay $121.80, as calculated reflecting the provisions of the Bipartisan Budget Act signed into law by President Obama last week. Medicare Part B beneficiaries not subject to the “hold-harmless” provision are those not collecting Social Security benefits, those who will enroll in Part B for the first time in 2016, dual eligible beneficiaries who have their premiums paid by Medicaid, and beneficiaries who pay an additional income-related premium. These groups account for about 30 percent of the 52 million Americans expected to be enrolled in Medicare Part B in 2016.

Texas Medicare and Medicaid Information

If you are receiving Texas Medicaid or are part of a state health insurance or other program, you may see changes in your benefits when you become eligible for Medicare. Insurance plans for government employees also undergo several changes when a recipient becomes eligible for Medicare. Any government employee who is retired at the age of 65 and receiving benefits from a state insurance program other than Texas Medicaid is required to enroll in Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. Recipients of Texas Medicaid, the Kidney Health Program and the State of Texas Assistance Program will also see their benefits change upon becoming eligible for Medicare. If you are participating in the Medicaid 1929b program that allows you to live at home instead of in a nursing facility you will not be automatically eligible for the low income Medicare credit. You will need to apply with Medicare and enroll in a Texas Medicare Part D plan to replace Medicaid coverage upon becoming eligible for Medicare. The Texas Medicare Prescription website has additional information concerning how Medicare will affect your Texas Medicaid and other state benefits.
