Alabama Medicare Advantage

1. If you are new to Medicare or have never been enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan before, you may have heard Advantage Plans referred to as Medicare supplements or supplemental coverage. Nothing is further from the truth. A Medicare Advantage plan is not a Medicare supplement (also known as Medigap), it is merely another way to receive your Medicare benefits.

Medicare Advantage plans in Ohio

If you have Medicare Advantage, you’d get your drug benefits through the health plan, not a stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plan. The exception is if you’re enrolled in a Medicare Savings Account plan (which never includes drug benefits) or a Private Fee-for-Service plan (which doesn’t always include it). If you’re in a Medicare Savings Account plan or a Private Fee-for-Service plan that doesn’t come with drug coverage, you’re allowed to enroll in a stand-alone prescription drug plan. For all other types of Medicare Advantage plans, you’re required to join a Medicare Advantage plan that includes drug coverage. Aside from Medicare Savings Account plans, any of the other types of Medicare Advantage plans may come with drug benefits.

The history of Medicare and its influence on American health care

Several months ago, it appeared that Congress would tackle the issue of correcting the formula in its healthcare reform legislation, but then senators announced they were going to bring up a standalone bill that would overhaul the formula, replace it with a new one, and erase the accumulated cuts in pay. But that bill failed a procedural vote in the Senate, indicating that an SGR bill that offers no way to pay for itself would not be able to earn support from senators who were on the verge of passing trillion-dollar healthcare legislation in the midst of an economic recession.

Initial Coverage Election Period: You can enroll into a Medicare Advantage plan or Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan when you first become eligible for Medicare. Your Initial Coverage Election Period (ICEP), is a seven-month period that starts 3 months before the month you turn 65, includes the month you turn 65, and ends 3 months after the month you turn 65. If you are under age 65 and you receive Social Security disability, you qualify for Medicare in the 25th month after you begin receiving your Social Security benefits. If you fall into this category, you may enroll into a Medicare Advantage plan 3 months before your month of eligibility, during the month of eligibility, and 3 months after the month of eligibility. For example, if your Medicare Part A and Part B coverage begins in May, your Medicare Advantage plan ICEP is February through August. See Medicare Advantage Plans

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.

MEDICARE, Part A, B, C and D

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

The Original Medicare Plan (Medicare Part A & B) is available everywhere in the United States. It is the way everyone used to get Medicare benefits and is the way most people get their Medicare Part A and Part B benefits now. You may go to any doctor, specialist, or hospital that accepts Medicare. The Original Medicare Plan pays its share and your supplemental FEHB coverage often pays the difference and if you carry both Part A and B most FEHB plans waive the deductible, copayments and coinsurance. Some things are not covered under Original Medicare, like prescription drugs.

Medicare Part B Overview: Coverage and Premiums

You’ll typically pay a premium for Medicare Part B unless you qualify for financial assistance. Because of this, you have the option of turning it down, although you might pay a late-enrollment penalty if you decide to enroll in Medicare Part B later on. This monthly Part B premium amount may vary from year to year. Remember, you must have both Part A and Part B if you decide to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan.

Medicare Part A Overview: Coverage and Premiums

Hospice care is for the terminally ill who are expected to have six months or less to live. Coverage includes pain-relief and symptom-control prescription drugs, medical and support services, grief counseling, and other services. Care is provided by a Medicare-approved hospice provider who will visit you at your home. Medicare also provides additional care for a hospice patient so that the usual caregiver can take a time of rest. Medicare may not cover all services that are provided to patients who receive hospice assistance.

Original Medicare (Part A and B) Eligibility and Enrollment

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.

Medicare Part A: Hospital Care and Services

The Social Security Administration handles Medicare enrollment. You are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B if you’re 65 and receive Social Security checks. Typically, you’ll get your Medicare card three months before your 65th birthday. If you have private health insurance, it likely makes sense to sign up for Medicare Part A because it will provide you with additional coverage at no extra cost. However, you may wish to delay signing up for Part B coverage — for which there is a monthly premium — if your private insurance provides adequate coverage for outpatient medical services. To avoid paying a higher premium, you need to enroll during a Special Enrollment Period should you ultimately lose your private coverage.
