California Medicare Supplement Plans

Beneficiaries may enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan in California during their six-month Medigap Open Enrollment Period, beginning on the first day of the month that they are 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. During this time, beneficiaries aren’t subject to medical underwriting, which means they cannot be charged higher premiums or denied coverage based solely on medical history or a current medical condition. However, if a beneficiary adds or changes a Medicare Supplement plan at any other time, medical underwriting guidelines will generally apply.

New Jersey Medicare Supplement Plans

If you are interested in signing up for a Medicare Supplement plan in New Jersey, the best time to do so is during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period (OEP). The OEP is a six-month period, beginning on the first day of the month that you are both age 65 and enrolled in Medicare Part B. During the OEP, Medicare beneficiaries may enroll in any Medigap plan of their choice sold in their state without the need to submit their medical background or history, and without fear of being denied complete coverage, or having higher rates based on medical history. However, once the OEP has expired, a Medicare beneficiary may still enroll in a Medigap plan, but may be subject to medical underwriting and could face higher out-of-pocket costs, or even denial of coverage based on any pre-existing conditions.

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 PPO Plans

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Generally, Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Advantage PPO plans can receive their health care from any doctor or health care provider who accepts Medicare assignment. These plans have network doctors and providers, but plan members are still given the flexibility to choose out-of-network doctors. Be aware that out-of-network care will generally cost more for the beneficiary as the PPO plan will cover less of the expenses. Some Medicare Advantage plans require beneficiaries to choose a primary care doctor to coordinate their health care, but PPO plans do not have this requirement. Additionally, referrals from a primary care doctor are not required for a beneficiary to see a specialist. Like with other aspects of care under a PPO plan, using an in-network plan specialist will usually cost less than using an out-of-network specialist.

Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans in Missouri

In general, Medicare plans that include prescription drug coverage in Missouri allow you to choose between brand-name prescription drugs and generic prescription drugs. Generic prescription drugs, as defined by the Food and Drug Administration, use the same active ingredients as brand-name prescription drugs, at the same strength, dosage form, and with the same method of administration, and they are tested to have the same results. The difference for you is that generic prescription drugs often cost less than their brand-name counterparts, so you may end up paying a reduced amount for your medication. In case your generic prescription drug is not available, your prescription drug plan may allow you to substitute it with a similar generic prescription drug, resulting in lower out-of-pocket expenses, so be sure to discuss all prescription drug options with your doctor.
