In 2016, it was announced that Xerox State Healthcare, LLC would separate from the parent company, Xerox Corporation, and become a new independent, publicly-traded company called Conduent Incorporated. With the separation, Xerox will be rebranded as “Conduent State Healthcare, LLC.” The shift to the Conduent brand name begins on January 3, 2017. The same knowledgeable individuals will continue to support your Medicaid needs. Mailing addresses and phone numbers will not change as a result of the transition. Forms, letterhead, notifications, and other correspondence will reflect the new name, therefore it is essential for Alaska Medicaid providers, beneficiaries, and stakeholders to know that correspondence bearing the name Conduent will be Alaska Medicaid related.

Medicare Advantage in Alaska

Unfortunately, Medicare Advantage plans are largely unavailable in the state of Alaska. But beneficiaries can still get their Original Medicare coverage through Part A and Part B. You may be able to enroll in stand-alone prescription drug coverage through Medicare Part D. Also, you may be able to enroll in a Medigap (Medicare Supplement) plan, offered by private insurance companies, which may help you pay your out-of-pocket costs for services covered under Original Medicare.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare Coverage

You can think of Medicare as a safety net. But even a safety net can have holes. Medicare covers many of your health care expenses. But it was never designed to pay all your health care costs. If you rely only on it to cover all your medical and/or prescription drug expenses, you could come up short.

5 Changes To Medicare in 2016 That May Raise Your Blood Pressure

Consider enrolling in Medicare now rather than waiting until 2016 if you are already eligible. You can also sign up for your Social Security benefits before the end of 2015 and enroll in the program to have your Medicare premiums deducted from your monthly payment. That will move you from the 30 percent “pick up the tab for everyone” group to the 70 percent “protected by no COLA” group. But if the reason you’ve been paying your premium directly is because you postponed collecting Social Security, the reduction in your Medicare Part B premium actually may not be enough of a savings to start Social Security before you intended. For each year after age 66 that you delay, there is an 8 percent increase in Social Security benefits (up until age 70) for life. Do the math.

Utah 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.
