Compare Medicare Advantage & Supplemental Plans

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Medicare supplement plans offer benefits in addition to the benefits offered by Medicare Parts A and B, and they are offered by private insurance companies. There are several different types of Medicare supplement plans available, including Plan A, Plan C, Plan F, Plan M and Plan N. Medicare supplement plans and Medicare Advantage plans are not complementary, so it is important to understand which type of policy makes the most sense for you. Our licensed sales agents are standing by to walk you through a comparison of the costs and benefits of each type of plan, and to help you choose a Medicare supplement plan that best meets your needs.

Does Medicare or Medicaid Come With Social Security or SSI Disability Benefits?

Note that SSI recipients in 209(b) states are allowed to spend down even if the state doesn’t have a “medically needy” program, a separate type of Medicaid  eligibility  program that allows some individuals to spend down their medical expenses. In the 209(b) states that  do  have a medically needy program, SSI recipients have to spend down only to the 209(b) income standard, not the medically needy income limit (MNIL). (In most 209(b) states, the 209(b) income limits for Medicaid are higher than the income limits for Medicaid’s medically needy program.)

How Long Does It take to Get Medicare Coverage Through Social Security Disability (SSD)?

However, your onset date for payment purposes can only be 17 months before your application date—that’s because Social Security allows a maximum of 12 months of retroactive benefits. (This maximum gets you to 12 months before your application date, plus five months for the waiting period, so your earliest your effective onset date can be is 17 months before the application date.) In this case, the earliest that you can become eligible for Medicare is one year after you apply for Social Security disability. But for disability applicants who apply for benefits only when they become disabled, and not before, the date that their Medicare coverage will start is more likely to be two years and five months after they apply for disability.
