About Medicare in Wisconsin

What makes Wisconsin unique is the availability of Medicare Supplement Insurance. It is one of just three states to offer its own version of it. Most states can offer up to 10 standardized plans, meaning that plan coverage details do not change no matter where they are purchased. Medicare beneficiaries in Wisconsin looking for supplemental coverage have a few options. These include the Wisconsin Basic Plan, which covers certain Part A and Part B coinsurance/copayment costs; the first three pints of blood used each year; and state-mandated benefits. The Basic Plan also provides additional mental health and home health care coverage beyond what Original Medicare pays for.

Cigna temporarily banned from new Medicare plans

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

“Cigna has had a longstanding history of non-compliance with CMS requirements,” the agency said. “Cigna has received numerous notices of non-compliance, warning letters, and corrective action plans from CMS over the past several years. A number of these notices were for the same violations discovered during the audit, demonstrating that Cigna has not corrected issues of non-compliance.”

Cigna Medicare Insurance Plans

The Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policies offered provide a way for you to supplement your Original Medicare benefits. While Medicare Part A and B pay for certain hospital stay and physician services provided, Medigap can help you cover your costs associated with Part A and B deductibles, coinsurance, and copayment requirements. It offers seven supplemental Medicare plans with basic to comprehensive coverage for everything from deductibles to copayments, excess charge coverage, and skilled nursing facility care coinsurance costs.

U.S. government suspends enrollment in Cigna Medicare Advantage, drug plans

n”>The U.S. government has suspended new enrollment in Cigna Corp’s Medicare Advantage health insurance and prescription drug plans, saying Cigna had “widespread and systemic failures” that prevented patients from accessing medical services. The government said Cigna did not handle complaints and grievances properly from patients who had been denied coverage for health benefits or drugs, according to a Jan. 21 letter from its regulator, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.

Cigna Medicare Supplement Insurance

Although any of these Cigna Medicare supplement plans will provide great protection, Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan F covers the fullest range of coinsurance, deductibles, and excess charges that otherwise would have to be paid out of pocket. It covers the blood that basic Medicare does not cover, and provides a full extra year of hospitalization coverage. Plan F also covers skilled nursing service and approved health care costs you incur while traveling outside the United States. It even allows you to choose any doctor who accepts Medicare. With fixed premiums and generally no unexpected out-of-pocket costs, Plan F is the Medigap plan chosen by nearly half of Americans who purchase Medicare supplement insurance plans.
