Wisconsin Medicare Insurance

Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D) adds to your Medicare health care coverage. It helps pay for both brand-name and generic drugs. Medicare drug plans are overseen by the Federal government and offered by private insurance companies. Everyone with Medicare has to make a decision about prescription drug coverage. If you do not enroll in a Medicare Prescription plan when you first go on Medicare, and later you wish to enroll because of increasing drug cost, Medicare will assign a penalty of 1% for each month that you did not have a drug plan. This penalty is cumulative and continues for as long as you have a drug plan. Click for more on Medicare Prescription Drug plans.

How Much Does Medicare Cost Per Month?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Medicare Part A is free for most people. If you’re 65 or over and eligible for Social Security, Railroad Retirement or civil service retirement, or dependents or survivors benefits, you’re also eligible for Medicare Part A without paying any premium. If you’re under 65 and have received Social Security disability benefits for 24 months, you’re also eligible for free Part A coverage. If you aren’t eligible for free Part A coverage, you can buy it for a monthly premium. With 30 to 39 Social Security or civil service work credits, you’d pay $233 a month; if you have fewer than 30 work credits, Part A costs you $423 a month. You can find out how many credits you have by checking the annual earnings record Social Security sends you or by going online at the Social Security website[ssa.gov].

Dental Insurance for Seniors on Medicare

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

As with any insurance, it’s a good idea to purchase a dental plan before you’re facing a crisis. By buying dental insurance for seniors before problems arise, you’ll generally get a better rate. However, if you already suspect that you need serious dental work, it still makes sense to apply. That’s because once you’re approved, the plan may potentially save you some money by allowing you to purchase the dental services you need at the insurance company’s lower, negotiated rates. But be warned: you may pay much higher premiums or be rejected outright if dental problems have already manifest themselves.

Medicare Advantage Dental Plan

Some of our plans offer optional supplemental coverage for an additional premium. Our optional dental benefits allow you to receive covered dental services when you select a participating primary care dentist. Our optional eyewear and hearing aid benefits provide you additional reimbursement coverage. Below is a list of the benefits you can receive.

Dental Coverage Under Medicare

For complete dental coverage, you can shop online at www.ehealthinsurance.com to learn about and buy an individual dental insurance plan that fits your personal needs. You may also have group dental insurance available, if either you or your spouse is employed. Be sure to read the plans carefully. Some dental plans require you to stay within a network of dental care providers. The premiums may be a bit higher for this type of plan, but the costs are offset by lower out-of-pocket fees, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles, mainly because network dentists usually agree to charge discounted rates to members of the dental plan. Other plans let you go to any licensed dental professional, but you may have to pay more at the time of service.
