How Medicare works with other insurance

A conditional payment is a payment Medicare makes for services another payer may be responsible for. Medicare makes this conditional payment so you won’t have to use your own money to pay the bill. The payment is “conditional” because it must be repaid to Medicare if you get a settlement, judgment, award, or other payment later. You’re responsible for making sure Medicare gets repaid from the settlement, judgment, award, or other payment.

What Is Medicare Part D? How Does Medicare Work?

Dozens of different drug plans are available to you wherever you live. They include stand-alone drug plans (state-wide plans and some nationally available plans), which you would use if you’re enrolled in the traditional Medicare program; and regional and local Medicare Advantage plans that combine medical and drug coverage in their benefit packages. What will I pay for my drugs? You could pay a different price for the same drug according to the phase of coverage that you’re in at any point during the year. • Deductible: If your plan has a deductible, you pay full price for your drugs until the deductible amount is met and coverage kicks in. “Full price” means the price your plan has negotiated with each drug’s manufacturer. This price may be less that you would pay retail at the pharmacy. • Initial coverage period: Your share of each prescription is either a flat copayment (for example, $20) or a percentage of the drug’s cost (for example, 25 percent). Most plans have three or four levels (known as “tiers”) of copays, rising in price from the least expensive generic drugs through “preferred” brand-name drugs to “nonpreferred” brands and finally to specialty or high-cost drugs. • Coverage gap (“doughnut hole”): In 2016 you pay 45 percent of your plan’s price for brand-name and biologic drugs in the gap and 58 percent for generics. In 2017 you pay 40 percent and 51 percent respectively. Fifty percent of the discount for brand drugs is provided by their manufacturers; the rest of the discount for brand drugs and the whole discount on generics is provided by the federal government. If your plan provides any coverage in the gap, these discounts are applied to your remaining costs. • Catastrophic level of coverage: Your share of each prescription is about no more than 5 percent of the cost of the drug. You would also pay a different price if you receive Extra Help or have additional coverage from elsewhere (such as retiree drug benefits or assistance from a state pharmacy assistance program). Why does the same plan charge different copays for different drugs? Most plans arrange their charges in “tiers.” Typically, Tier 1 is the copay for low-cost generics, Tier 2 for medium-cost “preferred” brand-name drugs, Tier 3 for higher-cost “non-preferred” brand names, and Tier 4 for very expensive or rare drugs. But some plans use more than four tiers and some use only one, charging the same percentage price for all drugs. All plans charge a percentage of the cost (typically 25 or 33 percent) for the most expensive drugs in the highest tier. Why does one plan charge a lot more for the same drug than another plan? Each plan negotiates the price of each drug with its manufacturer. If a plan gets a good discount on one brand-name drug but not on a competing drug used to treat the same condition, the plan charges a lower copay for the former (“preferred”) drug and a higher copay for the latter (non-preferred). Different plans may place the same drug in different tiers of charges varying by as much as $50 or more between tiers. Also, some plans charge a percentage of the cost of a drug, while other plans charge a flat dollar copay, which can cause enormous differences in charges among different plans. That’s why it is important to compare copays (as well as premiums and deductibles) when choosing a plan.

Medicare Basics: Hospital Insurance (Part A) and Medical Insurance (Part B)

Today Medicare Part A and Part B are called Original Medicare. Medicare Part A is also known as hospital insurance, and its beneficiaries can expect inpatient hospital stays in a semi-private room to be covered (a private room is not covered unless it is deemed medically necessary). In addition, rehabilitation and other skilled nursing services are also covered. Home health care is covered but only if it’s medically necessary, and then only on a part-time, intermittent basis; this includes physical, occupational and speech therapies when conducted by a Medicare-approved health agency. Durable medical equipment (DME) such as walkers and wheelchairs are covered, as are other medical supplies. Finally, Part A covers hospice care for terminally ill patients and includes drugs and support services for treating symptoms and relieving pain.

North Carolina Community Health Center Association

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

The North Carolina Community Health Center Association (NCCHCA) was formed in 1978 by the leadership of community health centers, NCCHCA is comprised of membership from 37 health center grantees (including one migrant voucher program) and 1 Look-Alike organization (membership of 3 new start organizations is pending). NCCHCA is singularly focused on the success of health centers. NCCHCA is the HRSA funded state Primary Care Association (PCA). The non-profit, consumer-governed Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) we represent provide integrated medical, dental, pharmacy, behavioral health, and enabling services to nearly one-half million patients in North Carolina. FQHCs receive federal assistance to provide sliding-fee services to assure no one is denied access to care. NCCHCA represents FQHCs to state and federal officials and provides training and technical assistance on clinical, operational, financial, administrative, and governance issues. NCCHCA is also a HRSA Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) grantee. Participating in the HCCN – Carolina Medical Home Network (CMHN) -health centers have the opportunity to work together on quality improvement and operational system redesign initiatives and engage in payment reform models through the Independent Practice Association (IPA) and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) initiatives. NCCHCA is the sponsor and managing partner of Carolina Medical Home Network (CMHN), which serves as the clinical and operational performance improvement organization of NCCHCA and member health centers. CMHN is a 33 member HRSA funded Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) currently in the second three-year grant cycle. All members are NC health centers. CMHN provides its members with data analytics, quality improvement, and Health Information Exchange connectivity to improve cost, quality, and outcomes of care. Carolina Medical Home Network – Accountable Care Organization (CMHN-ACO) is a partnership of 8 NC health centers that have entered into the Medicare Shared Savings Program (one-sided model). Currently in Program Year 3, CMHN-ACO received funding from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) for ACO Investment Model (AIM) to support care coordination efforts at ACO member health centers and network administrative services. NCCHCA launched a Data-Informed Outreach project in collaboration with CMHN that supports community health workers in health centers to augment care coordination efforts. CMHN-ACO serves as the pilot for identification of population health strategies to scale up to the larger CMHN network. For 2017, two additional CHCs will join the ACO. Carolina Medical Home Network – Independent Practice Association (CMHN-IPA) is a network of 27 NC health centers striving towards clinical integration with the goal of leveraging size, scope and coordinated performance improvement in third-party payer negotiations. The IPA couples CMHN-ACO tested methods with business strategies to develop advantageous network-level contracts with payers.

North Carolina Board of Pharmacy : NCBOP Homepage

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND COMMENT PERIOD (FEBRUARY 21, 2017) ON PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO RULES 21 NCAC 46 .2102, .2104, .2105, .2107, and .2108  – ELIGIBILITY TO VOTE, COMMITTEE ON NOMINATIONS,  NOMINATION BY PETITION, BALLOTS:  CASTING AND COUNTING, DETERMINATION OF ELECTION RESULTS.  The Board has proposed the amendment of several of its Board member election rules in order to shift the voting period to coincide with the pharmacist licensing renewal period.  The Board proposed to provide an opportunity for pharmacists to vote by electronic ballot at the same time that they perform their on-line license renewal.  The Board believes that aligning voting with license renewal is likely to increase pharmacist participation in voting.  The Board further proposed to eliminate the option for voting by paper ballots, as no pharmacist has voted by paper ballot since 2011, and elimination of this option will conserve Board resources by allowing it to cease production of paper ballots.  The Board further proposes to amend the rules to codify run-off procedures, as run-offs have often become necessary.

Medicare Advantage 2014 Spotlight: Plan Availability and Premiums

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

While many organizations offer Medicare Advantage plans, a few – particularly Humana, United Healthcare, and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) affiliates – have particularly large geographic spread and these organizations historically account for a disproportionate share of enrollment. In 2014, 44 percent of available plans are being offered by one of these three firms or affiliates (Table A4).  Plans offered by these firms are available to most beneficiaries.  Nationwide, 83 percent of Medicare beneficiaries will have access to one or more Humana plans, 73 percent will have access to a BCBS affiliated plan (including BCBS plans offered by Wellpoint), and 68 percent will have access to a United Healthcare plan (Exhibit 5; Table A5).  The general availability of these firms’ products has not noticeably changed from 2013 to 2014.  However, the similarities in BCBS offerings from 2013 to 2014 obscure a decline in availability of BCBS branded Wellpoint plans (declining from 88 plans to 55 plans between 2013 and 2014), which is mostly offset by the growth in plans offered by other BCBS affiliates (growing from 205 plans to 233 plans between 2013 and 2014).

Medicare Advantage Plan, Original Medicare Choices

Medicare Advantage (MA) offers an alternative way of receiving your benefits through local or regional private plans, which are most often health maintenance organizations (HMOs) or preferred provider organizations (PPOs). Each plan must include everything covered by traditional Medicare, but may offer more benefits and/or lower copays. Most plans charge a monthly premium (in addition to the Part B premium), and most include Part D drug coverage. Your choice of doctors and other providers may be restricted to those in the plan’s network and geographical area—although PPOs allow you to go out of network for a higher copay. Each plan can, each calendar year, change its premiums, its extra benefits and its copays, or withdraw from Medicare You cannot buy a medigap policy to cover out-of-pocket costs in a Medicare Advantage plan. But each plan has an annual limit on out-of-pocket costs.

Medicare Part D coverage gap

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

The Medicare Part D coverage gap (informally known as the Medicare donut hole) is a period of consumer payment for prescription medication costs which lies between the initial coverage limit and the catastrophic-coverage threshold, when the consumer is a member of a Medicare Part D prescription-drug program administered by the United States federal government. The gap is reached after shared insurer payment – consumer payment for all covered prescription drugs reaches a government-set amount, and is left only after the consumer has paid full, unshared costs of an additional amount for the same prescriptions. Upon entering the gap, the prescription payments to date are re-set to $0 and continue until the maximum amount of the gap is reached: copayments made by the consumer up to the point of entering the gap are specifically not counted toward payment of the costs accruing while in the gap.
Source: wikipedia.org

Medicare Part D Donut Hole – Prescription Drug Coverage Gap

Most Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans have a coverage gap, sometimes called the Medicare “donut hole.” This means that after you and your Medicare drug plan have spent a certain amount of money for covered prescription drugs, you then have to pay all costs out-of-pocket for the drugs, up to a certain out-of-pocket limit. The yearly deductible, coinsurance, or copayments, and what you pay while in the coverage gap, all count toward this out-of-pocket limit. The limit doesn’t include the drug plan’s premium.

What’s Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)?

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 Plans Information and Quotes

Most Advantage plans also cover prescriptions. Medicare rarely does.  If you drop a Medigap plan that covered your prescriptions to switch to an Advantage plan, you would not be able to switch back.  Although you may keep a Medigap plan that covers prescriptions, you can no longer join one.   If you drop an Advantage plan that has prescription coverage, you’d need a Part D prescription drug plan to replace it.

Medigap: Covering the Gaps in Medicare

If you try to buy a medigap policy after your open enrollment period has ended, the insurance company might not sell it to you. Insurance companies try to identify in advance people who are likely to collect a lot of benefits, and then refuse to insure them. They do this by asking to examine your medical records over the previous few years and refusing to sell you a policy if you have had a significant amount of medical treatment or you have a condition that is likely to require extensive treatment in the near future. Almost all insurance companies require such initial eligibility reviews — sometimes called medical underwriting — for plans that provide the most extensive benefits.

The Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit

Medicare Part D is a voluntary outpatient prescription drug benefit for people on Medicare that went into effect in 2006. All 57 million people on Medicare, including those ages 65 and older and those under age 65 with permanent disabilities, have access to the Part D drug benefit through private plans approved by the federal government; in 2016, nearly 41 million Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Part D plans. During the Medicare Part D open enrollment period, which runs from October 15 to December 7 each year, beneficiaries can choose to enroll in either stand-alone prescription drug plans (PDPs) to supplement traditional Medicare or Medicare Advantage prescription drug (MA-PD) plans (mainly HMOs and PPOs) that cover all Medicare benefits including drugs. Beneficiaries with low incomes and modest assets are eligible for assistance with Part D plan premiums and cost sharing. This fact sheet provides an overview of the Medicare Part D program and information about 2017 plan offerings, based on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other sources.
