Nevada Medicare Supplements

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.

Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap) in Wisconsin

For eligibility and enrollment, Medigap plans in Wisconsin work the same way as in the rest of the country. You’re first eligible to join a Medicare Supplement plan during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period, which starts automatically when you’re both age 65 and enrolled in Part B. During your Medigap Open Enrollment Period, you have guaranteed-issue rights, meaning that private insurance companies offering Medigap plans aren’t allowed to require medical underwriting or charge you a higher premium because of any health issues. You may find that the Medigap Open Enrollment Period is a good time to enroll, especially if you have any disabilities or pre-existing conditions.

How Much Does Medicare Cost in 2016

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

If you don’t sign up for Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage (a stand-alone Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan) when you’re newly eligible for Medicare, you might be subject to a late-enrollment penalty when and if you decide to get this coverage at a later date. You may be able to avoid this penalty if you’re covered by another prescription drug plan that’s “creditable” (expected to pay, on average, at least as much as Medicare typically pays).

Medicare Advantage Insurance Costs

In addition to paying your Part B premium, you may also be responsible for paying a Medicare Advantage premium. Some Medicare Advantage plans may have premiums as low as $0, while other plans may have higher monthly premiums, You may want to compare all available plan options in your area to find a plan with costs and benefits that meet your needs. Remember, even if your service area offers a Medicare Advantage plan with a $0 premium, this doesn’t mean that that plan won’t have other costs. You’ll still need to pay the Medicare Part B premium, along with any copayments, coinsurance, or deductibles required by the Medicare Advantage plan. Always be careful to evaluate all costs related to any Medicare Advantage plan you’re considering, not just the premium.

Cost of Medicare Part B & Part A

There is a monthly premium for Part B coverage. How much you pay in 2016 is based on how you paid it in 2015 because there was no cost-of-living increase for 2016 Social Security benefits. If you had your premium withheld from your Social Security check in 2015, then you continue to pay $104.90 in 2016. If you didn’t have your premium withheld in 2015 or are new to Medicare in 2016, then your monthly premium is $121.80. It could also be higher than $121.80 depending on how much money you earn. If you’re single with an income of $85,000 or more OR married with an income of $170,000 or more, you will pay a higher premium. Medicare beneficiaries who meet certain income and resource guidelines can get their Part B premium paid for by their state’s Medicare Savings Program.

Dental Insurance for Seniors on 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.

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.
