Original Medicare (Parts A & B) is the main building block of health care for American seniors. In 2014, 54.1 million people were enrolled in Medicare, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. You can enroll in just Original Medicare, enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan which provides at least same benefits as Original Medicare, or you can increase your coverage by buying a Medicare Supplement policy.

SENIORS TO RECEIVE MEDICARE REBATE CHECKS

“Seniors don’t fall victim to scams,” says Congresswoman Johnson. “Some people are calling seniors asking them for their social security numbers and other information in order to receive their rebate checks, this is simply untrue. Seniors have earned their benefits and Congress has a responsibility to deliver them.”                                                                                                                                    ### U.S. Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson is the highest-ranking Texan on the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure and a senior member of the Science Committee. She represents the 30th Congressional District of Texas, which, includes Downtown Dallas, Fair Park, Oak Lawn, Turtle Creek, Old East Dallas, Pleasant Grove, & South Oak Cliff; all of Balch Springs, DeSoto, Hutchins, Lancaster & Wilmer and parts of Cedar Hill, Duncanville, Ferris, Glenn Heights and Ovilla.

Medicare Donut Hole Rebate Checks

Washington, D.C. – Congressman G. K. Butterfield reminds seniors who fall into the Medicare Part D “donut hole” that the one-time, tax-free $250 rebate checks start going out to this week.   “This is an important first step toward closing the Medicare donut hole,” Butterfield said.   Under the Affordable Care Act passed by Congress and signed by President Obama, Medicare will automatically send a $250 check to seniors who reach the coverage gap in 2010. Checks will be mailed monthly staring June 10th throughout the year as beneficiaries enter the coverage gap.   Butterfield said that once a Medicare beneficiary reaches the donut hole, they should expect to automatically receive a check within 45 days. Individuals receiving Medicare Extra Help will not receive a rebate check.   Butterfield warned seniors to be aware of scams seeking personal information.   “Medicare sends check automatically and there are no forms to fill out,” Butterfield said. “Don’t give any personal information – Medicare, Social Security or bank account numbers – to anyone who calls about the rebate check.”   Anyone who does receive calls seeking personal information is encouraged to call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.   Butterfield explained that most Medicare prescription drug plans have a coverage gap, which means that once beneficiaries have spent a certain amount, all drug costs must be paid for out of pocket up to a limit. Medicare drug coverage resumes once the limit is exceeded.   Butterfield said that under the health insurance reforms, the donut hole will eventually be closed completely. Beginning in 2011, beneficiaries in the donut hole will receive a 50 percent discount on brand-name drugs. Additional discounts for brand-name and generic drugs will be phased in to close the donut hole completely by 2020.   A typical senior who hits the donut hole is expected to save over $700 in 2011, and over $3,000 annually by 2020.   Butterfield said that the health insurance reform provided a number of additional improvements to make health care more affordable for seniors. In addition to closing the donut hole, out-of-pocket expenses for preventive services in Medicare have been eliminated, and cost sharing for many individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid will also be eliminated.

National Provider Identifier Standard (NPI)

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Administrative Simplification Standard. The NPI is a unique identification number for covered health care providers. Covered health care providers and all health plans and health care clearinghouses must use the NPIs in the administrative and financial transactions adopted under HIPAA. The NPI is a 10-position, intelligence-free numeric identifier (10-digit number). This means that the numbers do not carry other information about healthcare providers, such as the state in which they live or their medical specialty. The NPI must be used in lieu of legacy provider identifiers in the HIPAA standards transactions.
