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 Supplement Plans

To be eligible to enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan, you must be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B. A good time to enroll in a plan is generally during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period, which begins on the first day of the month that you are both age 65 or older and enrolled in Part B, and lasts for six months. During this period, you have the guaranteed-issue right to join any Medicare Supplement plan available where you live. You may not be denied coverage based on any pre-existing conditions during this enrollment period (although a waiting period may apply). If you miss this enrollment period and attempt to enroll in the future, you may be denied coverage or charged a higher premium based on your medical history.

Colorado Medicare Supplements

Enrollment in Medicare is handled in two ways: either you are automatically enrolled or you must apply. If you are getting Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board benefits before you turn 65, you are automatically enrolled and your Medicare card will be mailed to you about three months before your 65th birthday. If you are not receiving retirement benefits, you must apply by contacting a Social Security Administration office or, if appropriate, the Railroad Retirement Board. You should apply three months before your 65th birthday to avoid a possible delay in the start of your coverage. If you have been a disabled beneficiary under Social Security or Railroad Retirement for 24 months, you will automatically get a Medicare card in the mail.

Everything You Need to Know About Medicare

Part A: Monthly premiums for Part A are free for people who have worked more than 40 quarters (10 years) of Medicare-taxed employment. Their spouses, and sometimes their former spouses and widows, are also eligible for free premiums. Those who have worked less than that will pay hundreds of dollars every month. For 2016, that is as much as $226 per month for 30-39 quarters to $411 per month for less than 30 quarters of work. Additional Part A costs include a $1,288 deductible in 2016 for each hospital stay, copayments for hospital stays longer than 60 days, and copayments for skilled nursing facility stays longer than 20 days.

How Medicare Advantage Plans work

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,” are offered by private companies approved by Medicare. If you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you still have Medicare. You’ll get your Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from the Medicare Advantage Plan and not Original Medicare.
Source: medicare.gov

Medicare Plan Definitions

A Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private insurance company that contracts with Medicare to provide Original Medicare (Parts A and B) benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans can combine hospital, doctor and drug coverage in one plan, and may include extra benefits not offered by Original Medicare.

What is Medicare Replacement Plan

A Medicare Replacement Plan is synonomous with the names Medicare Part C, Medicare+Choice, and Medicare Advantage. In general, what these have in common is that the member gets a wider range of benefits (sometimes including Rx benefits), and often lower copayments than with regular Medicare. What must be kept in mind, however, is that not all medical providers accept all plans, so it is important to check with your providers before enrolling to make sure that it will be worthwhile for you. You must have Medicare A & B to enroll in such a plan, and there may be an additional premium. Therefore, there will be a cost-benefit analysis.

When to Apply for Medicare

If you sign up for Medicare prescription drug coverage (whether through a stand-alone Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan), you can avoid late-enrollment penalties by enrolling in this coverage as soon as you’re eligible for Medicare. If you decide to stay with Original Medicare and add a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plan, the Medigap plan must accept you if you sign up for Medigap during the 6-month period that begins as soon as you are 65 or older and enrolled in Part B. If you don’t buy a Medigap plan at this time, but decide to get one later, the plan may not have to accept you.

Medicare Application Information

There is a special circumstances enrollment period for those who are signing up late because they were already covered by employer paid coverage during their “Initial Enrollment Period.” The special circumstance enrollment is called “Special Enrollment Period” (SEP) and gives you a window of eight months to get signed up. This window begins the month after your employment ended or group insurance ends (whichever ended first). There typically is no increased premium for your late enrollment because you actually had coverage through your employer during your IEP.
