|Medicare Supplements||Medicare Advantage||Medicare Part D|
If you are in the original Medicare plan, you may want to buy Medicare supplement health care insurance, also known as Medigap. This plan helps you pay for healthcare which may not be covered . If you currently have a Medicare Advantage Plan, such as a Medicare HMO, you will not need to purchase a supplemental insurance policy. All Medicare supplements are sold by private companies and offer a variety of plan choices to fit your needs and budget .
Medicare Advantage is popular because of the extra benefits that are offered such as extra days in the hospital, inexpensive out-of-pocket costs for doctor visits, and low-cost prescriptions. These plans are offered throughout the United States through private insurers. Part A and Part B of Medicare are required to join the plan and the premium for Medicare Part B must be paid by the Medicare recipient in order to enroll.
Medicare Part D is a prescription drug coverage policy. It covers both generic and name brand drugs. Its purpose is to help people who already have high prescription drug costs or could be affected by rising prescription drug costs. There are a variety of plans available offering various costs and coverage. Everyone eligible for Medicare Part A is automatically eligible for Medicare Part D. However, you must enroll in Part D three months in advance or three months after you become eligible. If you do not, you will have to wait for the open enrollment period. Open enrollment is usually once a year and takes place in the last few months of the year.
