Medicare and Medicaid: What's the Difference?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Costs to Consumer: You must pay a yearly deductible for both Medicare Part A and Part B, and make hefty copayments for extended hospital stays. Under Part B, you must pay the 20% of doctors’ bills Medicare does not pay, and sometimes up to 15% more. Part B also charges a monthly premium. Under Part D, you must pay a monthly premium, a deductible, copayments, and all of your prescription drug costs over a certain yearly amount and up to a ceiling amount, unless you qualify for a low-income subsidy.

What is Medicare? Medicare Benefits

Part C allows various HMOs, PPOs and similar health care organizations to offer health insurance plans to Medicare beneficiaries. At a minimum, they must provide the same benefits that the Original Medicare Plan provides under Parts A and B. Part C organizations are also permitted to offer additional benefits such as dental and vision care. But, to control costs, Part C plans are allowed to limit a patient’s choice of doctors, hospitals, etc., to just those who are members of their networks. This can be a major disadvantage if a patient’s favorite doctor or hospital is not a member of their networks.

Colorado Medicaid: eligibility, enrollment and benefits

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

One of the Affordable Care Act’s primary strategies for reducing the uninsured rate is Medicaid expansion to cover low-income, non-elderly adults without dependent children. Medicaid expansion was a required element of the ACA as originally written. However, a coalition of states challenged Medicaid expansion and several other provisions of the ACA, and the case ended up before the Supreme Court in 2012. While the Court rejected most of the challenges, it did rule that Medicaid expansion was optional.

d. Standard premium rate for voluntary enrollment by certain aged and disabled individuals not otherwise entitled to Hospital Insurance (HI). (Most individuals aged 65 and older and many disabled individuals under age 65 are insured for HI benefits without payment of any premium.) Beginning in 1994, a reduced premium is available to premium-paying HI enrollees with at least 30 quarters of Medicare-covered employment (either their own or through a current or former spouse if the marriage meets certain duration criteria). In most cases, a surcharge applies for beneficiaries who enroll after their initial enrollment period.

Benefits under Medigap Plan M

Medigap Plan M is almost identical in benefits to Medigap Plan D except that unlike Plan D, it only covers 50% of your Medicare Part A deductible. The Medicare Part A deductible amount is $1,260 in 2016. Since Medigap Plan M only covers half of the Medicare Part A deductible, you would still be responsible for up to $630 (in 2016) for Medicare Part A services. This means that under Medigap Plan M, you could have out-of-pocket expenses of $630 per calendar year when receiving services covered by Medicare Part A, including inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing facility (SNF) care, hospice care, and certain home health care services.
