Costs for Medicare Advantage Plans

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

If you’re in a Medicare plan, review the “Evidence of Coverage” (EOC) and “Annual Notice of Change” (ANOC) your plan sends you each fall. The EOC gives you details about what the plan covers, how much you pay, and more. The ANOC includes any changes in coverage, costs, or service area that will be effective in January.

Compare Medicare Advantage Plan Premiums and Costs

Remember that a Medicare Advantage plan may have more costs than its monthly premiums alone. Beneficiaries may have copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles associated with doctors’ visits, hospital stays, and other health-care services. Beneficiaries may also have out-of-pocket expenses associated with prescription drugs, including deductibles and copayments. In general, Medicare Advantage plans have a maximum allowable deductible that they can charge, but they also have the option to reduce or eliminate this deductible.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released revised PUF formats for the CY 2016 DMEPOS and Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (PEN) fee schedules.  Also released is a preliminary DMEPOS rural ZIP Code file containing Quarter 4 2015 rural ZIP codes.  Beginning January 1, 2016, fee schedule amounts for certain items will be adjusted based on information from the DMEPOS competitive bidding program, and for some items, the adjusted fee schedule amounts for items furnished in rural areas within the state will be different than the adjusted fee schedule amounts in other areas of the state.  The ZIP codes for areas defined as rural areas per regulations at 42 CFR 414.202 are based on current ZIP code boundaries.  Changes to the ZIP code public use file will be made, as needed, based on future changes to ZIP codes by the United States Postal Service.  The public use files for the DMEPOS and PEN fee schedules do not contain fee schedule amounts, but are being posted to show what changes are being planned for the file formats to accommodate the fee schedule amounts for rural areas, as well as statewide fee schedule amounts for enteral nutrition. Please be aware that effective October 21, 2015, revised 2016 DME and PEN TEXT file formats were made available as part of an updated DMEREADLAYOUTS16 document.

Diabetes supplies & services

Your doctor or other health care provider may recommend you get services more often than Medicare covers. Or, they may recommend services that Medicare doesn’t cover. If this happens, you may have to pay some or all of the costs. It’s important to ask questions so you understand why your doctor is recommending certain services and whether Medicare will pay for them.

Medicare: American Diabetes Association®

Medicare Part B covers insulin pumps and pump supplies (including the insulin used in the pump) for beneficiaries with diabetes who meet certain requirements. From January 1, 2014 until December 31, 2016, insulin pumps and pump supplies (but not insulin) are included in the Medicare Competitive Bidding Program in 9 areas of the U.S. This means beneficiaries in these 9 areas with Original Medicare (not Medicare Advantage) generally must use a Medicare contract supplier for Medicare to help pay for these items. Learn more about the program here or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227).  After December 31, 2016, insulin pumps and pump supplies will no longer be part of the Medicare Competitive Bidding Program which means beneficiaries in these 9 areas can use any Medicare supplier that provides insulin pumps and supplies. It is important to ask if the Medicare supplier “accepts assignment” for insulin pumps and pump supplies. This means the supplier will accept the Medicare-approved amount as payment in full, and you cannot be charged more than 20% coinsurance (after you meet your deductible). If a supplier does not accept Medicare assignment, you may be charged more than the 20% coinsurance. Be sure to check with the supplier to find out what your payment will be.

Medicare Coverage to Treat Diabetes

Medicare Part D is Medicare prescription drug coverage, which is available through either a stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan. Because insulin is a prescription drug used to control diabetes, Medicare Part D covers insulin. However, Medicare Part D does not cover insulin for diabetes when it is administered with an insulin pump. In that case, insulin for diabetes may be covered under Medicare Part B as durable medical equipment, as indicated above. Medicare Part D also covers other drugs that can help control diabetes.

American Diabetes Association Applauds Next Step in Medicare Coverage for National Diabetes Prevention Program: American Diabetes Association®

The American Diabetes Association applauds the Obama Administration and, particularly, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell for their continued commitment to providing improved health care and preventive services to Americans with prediabetes. Yesterday’s release of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) proposed 2017 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) marks the next step in establishing Medicare coverage of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). A rider addendum to the MPFS proposes expansion of the pilot program, to be known as the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP), which will take effect on January 1, 2018. The creation of the MDPP will ensure more Medicare beneficiaries at risk for diabetes have access to a proven lifestyle intervention to improve their health.
