What’s Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Some Medigap policies also offer coverage for services that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S. If you have Original Medicare and you buy a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share.

Medicare Advantage: Private Health Insurance Through Medicare

While you won’t need to pay a Part A premium, you will need to pay the “standard” Part B monthly premium, which is $134 in 2017. People with higher incomes (household income over $170,000) will pay higher premiums on a sliding scale, with adjustments ranging from about $53 to $295 more per month. The maximum premium will be $428.60. However, if you get Social Security benefits, your standard premium will be lower, because the Part B premium increased more than the cost-of-living increase for 2017 Social Security benefits. If this applies to you, your standard premium will be around $109.

Does Medicare ever cover dental services?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

will not cover dental care that you need primarily for the health of your teeth. For example, Medicare will not cover routine checkups, cleanings, or pay for you to get fillings. Medicare will never pay for dentures. Even if Medicare has paid for you to have teeth pulled (extracted) as preparation for a medical procedure, Medicare will not cover the cost of implants or dentures (complete or partial/bridge); you will be responsible for the full cost.

Your medical record is worth more to hackers than your credit card

Healthcare providers and insurers must publicly disclose data breaches affecting more than 500 people, but there are no laws requiring criminal prosecution. As a result, the total cost of cyber attacks on the healthcare system is difficult to pin down. Insurance industry experts say they are one of many expenses ultimately passed onto Americans as part of rising health insurance premiums.
