Turning 65? How do I compare Medicare Part D plans? How do I avoid making a mistake? How does the deductible work? Video explains https://youtu.be/LaA9NnFeBXI Am I required to buy a drug plan? How often can I change my Medicare Part D? How much does Part D cost? Where do I find prescription drug plans? How much will my medications cost? site:http://www.georgia-medicareplans.com medicare part d A popular consumer magazine suggests using Medicare.gov to review plans. That’s all well and good but navigating the Medicare Part D maze is perhaps more difficult than any other topic. Here are a few terms you should familiarize yourself with before tackling drug plans by yourself. ICL - Initial Coverage Level Deductible Donut hole Catastrophic coverage Preferred pharmacy’s vs standard pharmacy’s Extra Help Drug List ID and Password Date Too often consumers purchase a drug plan based on the lowest premium. Or they will only consider plans that do not have a deductible. Another common mistake is believing your best choice is to buy your Part D coverage from the same carrier that sold you a Medicare supplement plan. My best advice is, “Don’t do that”. Don’t buy a drug plan based on the lowest monthly premium Always consider Part D plans that have a deductible Shop your drug plan separately from Medigap coverage Remember, Medicare Part D can be changed every year without regard to medical underwriting. If your agent does not review your drug plan options during AEP (Annual Election Period) perhaps it is time to find a new agent. Call me. I want to help.

Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most seniors worry about hospital stays, but your major expenses will more than likely fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses.

Medicare Part D Deductible Explained - Georgia Medicare Video
 
05:28
How does Medicare Part D deductible work? Why do some PDP's have a deductible? Am I required to pay the insurance deductible up front before I can have a copay? Does the copay apply to all drugs? Isn't a plan without a deductible less expensive? Watch our videos site:http://www.georgia-medicareplans.com medicare part d In 2018 Georgia has 24 different prescription drug plans. Some #PartD plans have a deductible, others do not. Surprising how many seniors, and agents, automatically go for the plans with no deductible. In many cases your drugs may have a lower #copay and lower annual out of pocket cost when you choose a plan with a #deductible. Premiums are usually less as well when compared to plans that do not have a deductible. Roughly 6% of Medicare beneficiaries will ever enter the #donuthole. Many people can actively monitor their drug plan and avoid the donut hole completely. Every #drugplan has a #formulary. The formulary let's you know which drugs are covered by the plan, which are not. The formulary also determines your copay. Every Part D plan is approved by Medicare and each one is required to cover roughly 600 different drugs. If you are turning 65 and enrolling in Medicare, this may be your only chance to purchase a Medigap plan. Here is your guide to understanding GA Medicare. You don't have to receive Social Security to enroll in Medicare insurance. CMS is the agency that oversees Medicare. Senior healthcare insurance is commonly used to describe Medicare. How to enroll in Medicare? You may sign up for Medicare 3 months before your 65th birthday, the month you turn 65, and 3 months following your 65th birthday. You may enroll online (highly recommended), by mail or by visiting a Social Security office. Original Medicare has 4 parts. Medicare Part A covers hospital inpatient charges and has a per admission deductible Medicare Part B is for outpatient health care treatment. Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most seniors worry about hospital stays, but your major expenses will more than likely fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses. Original Medicare stand alone has no cap on your out of pocket expenses. You pay until you run out of money, get well or die. Medicare Part C is now referred to as Medicare Advantage. More on that later. Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs. Some Advantage plans have drug coverage built into the plan. Medigap and Advantage plans cover the same things, but what you pay out of pocket for your care, and where you receive your care, is very different. Original Medicare does not have networks. You can use any doctor or hospital anywhere in the US. Another plus is the ABN form which is only used with Original Medicare. Advantage plans are managed care plans. Some are PPO, some are HMO. In 2018 about half the plans are HMO with the balance being PPO. If you receive non-emergency out of network care under a PPO you may have higher copay’s and deductibles. Your max OOP may also be higher. Some plans do not cap out of network charges. Non-emergency out of network care charges may be denied if you have an HMO. #GeorgiaMedicarePlans #GAMedigapQuotes #Turning65 We represent several carriers including Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Humana and more.

This 22-minute video goes over all you need to know about Medicare Advantage plans. You learn the primary types of Medicare Advantage plans (i.e. HMO's & PPO's) and who Medicare Advantage plans are best for. We talk about why there are Medicare Advantage plans without prescription drug coverage and why some have bundled prescription drug plans. You also learn what to watch out for when selecting a plan.

Original Medicare is the Medicare parts A & B and D that we have detailed in previous videos. In this video we will talk about Medicare Advantage plans. In our next video of this series we will discuss Medicare Supplement or Medigap plans. You are only allowed a Medicare Supplement plan if you keep your Original Medicare. You cannot have a Medicare Supplement or Medigap plan and a Medicare Advantage plan at the same time. So, let’s talk about Medicare Advantage plans. 1. Medicare Advantage plans replace your Original Medicare. They are not supplements. They do not supplement or enhance your Medicare coverage, they replace it. (show book) When you choose a Medicare Advantage plan the benefits and appeals processes outlined in this guide are no longer relevant. You can throw this book away. Your benefits will be detailed in an “Evidence of Coverage” provided by the insurance company you choose to replace your Medicare, along with their “Annual Notice of Change”. You no longer need to show your doctor your red, white and blue Medicare card or Medicare number, you will have a new card provided to you by the insurance company. You can no longer appeal your benefits to Medicare. Medicare is out of the picture as far as your personal service in concerned. If you decide to appeal an insurance decision, you must appeal to the insurance company. 2. Medicare Advantage plans are typically HMOs or PPOs and on occasion a Private-Fee-for-Service plan. HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. We will talk more about both of those in a minute. What is important to understand is that Medicare Advantage plans are not standardized, they are regulated to meet a certain minimum coverage. That is an important concept, so let me explain further. Medicare Part A & B is standardized. Medicare Supplement plans are standardized. Everyone in those plans receives the exact same benefits, they can see the exact same doctors and should have the exact same experience. With Medicare Advantage plans, each plan has different benefits, different co-pays, and deductibles, covers different medical services and has a different network of doctors and hospitals. Everyone’s experience is different and depends on which plan they have chosen. In additional; all the benefits, co-pays, deductibles and the doctors and hospitals in the network can and will change each and every year. It will be your responsibility to keep up with the changes via their mandatory Annual Notice of Change. It’s your responsibility to study this annual notice and determine how the changes may impact your healthcare. Medicare Advantage plans are regulated to meet a certain minimum standard. That minimum standard dictates that they must be actuarially equivalent to Medicare Parts A and Part B. That’s an interesting term “actuarially equivalent”. What does that mean?

Medicare Part D
 
09:41
https://www.kimsnider.com - What is Medicare Part D? Medicare Part D is optional, prescription drug coverage. It helps pay for out-patient prescribed medications. Part D is sold by private companies that are approved by Medicare. - Am I eligible for Part D Coverage? If you have Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B, you are eligible to get prescription drug coverage through an individual policy or as part of a Medicare Advantage plan. - Do I need prescription drug coverage? If you have original Medicare (Part A and Part B) or a Medicare Advantage plan that does not include drug coverage, you should get a Part D prescription drug coverage policy when you are first eligible - even if you don't take a lot of medications. Unfortunately, our health is not guaranteed. As we age, it's likely that we will have an increased need for prescription medications. Prescriptions are very expensive - expensive enough that prescription drug coverage probably makes sense. Again, don't wait. If you wait to get coverage, you will have to pay a penalty, which results in a permanent increase in your monthly premium.

Did you know that you may be able to get Medicare Part D without paying a monthly premium? This video will address that and explain why putting too much emphasis on the Part D Premium may not be your best move. Visit the Medicare Plan Review website and get information on Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D and Medicare supplements. http://affordablemedicareplan.com There are two ways to get Medicare part D without a premium. The first is income based. If you are dual-eligible or qualify for extra help, you may not pay a premium. The second way is to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan without a premium that includes Part D coverage. You may or may not have a $0 premium Medicare Advantage Plan available in your service area. If you get your medical coverage through original Medicare, with or without a Medicare supplement, you will need to enroll in a stand-alone Part D plan. Plans average just above $30 per month. Don't put too much emphasis on the Medicare Part D premium... it's not the most important factor to consider when you are comparing Part D plans. Review the Medicare Part D formulary to make sure all your prescriptions are covered... that should be your number one concern. Beyond that, also consider: Your medication's tier placement The deductible amount What you'll pay to get your prescriptions Whether there is coverage in the Medicare Part D donut hole Learn more about Medicare Part D -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKro0RdqHSU Watch: Medicare Part D -- 5 Things to Know Before You Enroll

Medicare 101: Medicare Part D
 
02:48
----------------------------------------- http://www.Medigaplist.com Medicare Part D is probably the most confusing part of Medicare. It is the prescription drug plan part of Medicare, and for those of you who are taking prescription medications this is the worst part of Medicare. The Medigap plans and Medicare Advantage plans can seem like a piece of cake when comparing it to the Medicare drug plans, especially if you have to go through the donut hole. Medicare part D is the prescription drug program the government has in place to subsidize the cost of the medications that people who are over the age of 65 or on Medicare in the USA. It was started in 2006 but was enacted as part of the Medicare modernization act. If you are enrolled in medicare Part A, and Medicare Part B you can get a Medicare Part D plan. There is no underwriting done for these plans which means if you are on Medicare you can get a drug plan no matter what you have (Cancer, heart disease, etc). Most people who get a Medigap Plan F from companies such as AARP, Cigna or Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield will wan't to get a prescription drug plan. If you are on Mutual of Omaha Plan N you can still get an AARP Medicare prescription drug plan. If you are on an Advantage plan or an MAPD you will get the drug plan tied in with the Medical coverage. The Medicare Plan F is what the majority of the population on Medicare supplement plans have. There are so many prescription drug plans that are approved by the state governments that you must look at which ones are available by you. If you live in Colorado Springs the Medicare plans may be different than the plans in Denver Colorado. If you live in Jefferson County they could be different than the plans in Pueblo County. If your zip code is 80901 it could be different than the zip code 80942. I am mentioning Colorado just because I wanted to show how from state to state and zip code to zip code it can be different.

Medicare Advantage - 5 Things To Know About Advantage Plans Before You Enroll
 
07:29
Call (888) 310-0376 to Compare All Medicare Advantage Plans in Your State. Get Instant Access http://free-mini-course.com I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Advantage before you enroll. It doesn't make sense to even compare Medicare Advantage plans until you know how it works, who is eligible and when you can enroll in a plan. As a senior health insurance option, Advantage plans seem to be shrouded in confusion. One reason is because unlike Medicare supplemental insurance, plans are not standardized which makes shopping for a plan more difficult. If you would like to get the facts about Medicare Advantage vs Medicare supplement insurance, check out my Free 8 Part Video Mini-Course on Medicare Plans. Get Instant Access Absolutely Free! http://free-mini-course.com The first thing you need to know is that an Advantage plan is not a Medicare supplement. So what is Medicare Advantage? The Medicare and You Handbook states that it is a Medicare health plan like a PPO or HMO and is sometimes referred to as Part C. Plans are offered by Private insurance companies and you are still enrolled in Medicare. You will receive all Part A and Part B benefits from the Medicare Advantage Plan and drug coverage is often included. The second thing you should know is how plans work. And that begins with knowing whether or not you are eligible to enroll in a plan. To be eligible, you must: Have Medicare Parts A and B Live in the plan's service area Not have end-stage renal disease All Advantage plans have premiums if it is $0 per month. Plans shouldn't be referred to as a free Medicare Advantage plan. Premiums are normally lower than premiums for Medicare supplements. There are 6 types of Advantage plans and you will normally be subject to a provider network. It is paramount to be certain your providers are included. Check for your preferred specialists, ancillary facilities and hospitals in addition to your primary provider. If you are enrolling in a plan with drug coverage, be sure all your drugs are included in the plan's formulary. Many people search for Medicare health plans that include extra benefits and are often disappointed when they find Medicare supplements to be lacking. Medicare Advantage plans often include extra benefits not found in original Medicare. They may include: Dental Vision Hearing Silver Sneakers Gym membership Transportation to and from medical appointments Third. You need to be aware of when you can pursue Medicare Advantage enrollment. There are 3 types of enrollment periods. When you first become eligible you have a 7 month window to submit an application. Next, during the Medicare Advantage Annual Election period you can switch, drop or enroll in a plan. And you may have a Special Enrollment Period available if your circumstances have changed. The fourth thing you need to understand is Medicare Advantage plans are not standardized. Plans are offered County by County and premiums, provider networks, benefits and cost sharing amounts vary widely between plans. When you compare Advantage plans there are 3 plan documents that are very important to research and understand. The Summary of Benefits goes into much greater detail than the enrollment brochure. It lists all plan benefits and what each will require in deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance. The Provider Directory should be you companion until you locate all your providers or find some you are willing to live with. The Part D drug formulary should include all your required medications. Enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan that does not include all your drugs can wipe out any savings you may have had over choosing another type of Medicare health plan. The fifth thing you need to be aware of is how any cuts to Medicare Advantage will affect you. Understand that a lot of what you hear is politically motivated talking points designed to instigate fear. Although given the current political climate future funding for the Medicare Advantage program is tentative at best. If you feel as though enrolling in an Advantage plan is your best option, you should do it. If there are Medicare Advantage cuts in the future and you lose your plan you may qualify for Guaranteed Issue Rights to buy a supplement, even if you have preexisting conditions. Also, keep in mind that everyone wants to enroll in the best Medicare Advantage plan. And that will be the one that aligns with your specific set of circumstances.

Is Freedom Blue PPO a Medicare Supplement?
 
02:16
Freedom Blue PPO is offered by Anthem Blue Cross of California, a private insurance company. This video answers a question concerning whether Freedom Blue is a Medicare supplement. Visit: http://affordablemedicareplan.com to read hundreds of articles on Medicare Advantage, Medicare supplements and Part D insurance. Freedom Blue is a Medicare Advantage Plan, not a Medicare supplement. Once you understand the differences between an Advantage Plan and a supplement, you will see why. A Medicare Advantage Plan is a type of Medicare plan offered by a private insurance company that is contracted by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to provide and administer your Medicare benefits. Advantage Plans are also referred to as Part C. Plans may be a PPO, HMO, HMO-POS or Private Fee-for-Service plan. Rather than being subject to the Part A and Part B deductible and 20% coinsurance required by original Medicare, Advantage Plans have their own cost sharing amounts in the form of deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. Medicare Advantage Plans are good for one calendar year and often include Medicare Part D coverage and extra benefits not found in original Medicare, like dental, vision, hearing, etc. . Medicare supplements, also known as Medigap policies are also offered by private insurance companies but work differently than Advantage Plans. Medicare supplements are standardized insurance policies that help pay a portion of your share of the costs for Medicare covered services. Unlike Medicare Advantage Plans, supplements are not annual plans but rather continue in force as long as you pay your premiums. Medicare supplements sold today do not include Part D drug coverage. Freedom Blue PPO is a popular Medicare Advantage Plan offered by Anthem Blue Cross of California. Freedom Blue is available in many service areas. The main benefits of Freedom Blue include its affordability, reasonable cost-sharing amounts and extra benefits.

Welcome to my YouTube Medicare insurance Channel! Watch our videos! Turning 65? Enrolling in Medicare? What is Part B? Shopping rates? Best Medicare supplement plans for 2018. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3tOzkwbMkE0XR2gIqQHcZQ/playlists Through the magic of the internet, you can see and hear my message to you. Santa Claus can be everywhere but I can’t, so this video and my Georgia Medicare channel will have to suffice. Any Medicare-related questions can be phoned in or emailed. We do not recommend any dental insurance plans If you are turning 65 and enrolling in Medicare, this may be your only chance to purchase a Medigap plan. Here is your guide to understanding Medicare. You don't have to be receiving Social Security to enroll in Medicare insurance. CMS is the agency that oversees Medicare. What is Medicare? Senior healthcare insurance is commonly used to describe the Medicare program. How to sign up for Medicare? You may enroll in Medicare 3 months before your 65th birthday, the month you turn 65, and 3 months following your 65th birthday. You may enroll online (highly recommended), by mail or by visiting a Social Security office. Original Medicare has 4 parts. Medicare Part A covers hospital inpatient charges and has a per admission deductible Medicare Part B is for outpatient health care treatment. Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most seniors worry about hospital stays, but your major expenses will more than likely fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses. Original Medicare stand alone has no cap on your out of pocket expenses. You pay until you run out of money, get well or die. Medicare Part C is now referred to as Medicare Advantage. More on that later. Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs. Some Advantage plans have drug coverage built into the plan. Both Medigap and Advantage plans cover the same types of medical treatment, but what you pay out of pocket for your care, and where you receive your care, is very different. Advantage plans are managed care plans. Some are PPO, some are HMO. In 2018 about half the plans are HMO with the balance being PPO. If you receive non-emergency out of network care under a PPO you may have higher copay’s and deductibles. Your max OOP may also be higher. Some plans do not cap out of network charges. Non-emergency out of network care charges may be denied if you have an HMO. In 2018 most Advantage plans issued in Georgia limit your out of pocket for approved in network health care expenses to $6700. The American Cancer Society tells us that more than half the 1.4 million new cancer diagnoses occur in people age 65 and older. Roughly 20% of retiree deaths are a result of cancer. Medicare pays for almost half of the $74 billion spent on cancer treatment. The elderly account for 70% of cancer deaths each year. Some cancer centers, such as Mayo Clinic and MD Anderson do not participate in Medicare Advantage plans. Not all cancer responds to chemotherapy, but 80% of cancers are treated with chemo. Those treatments occur in an outpatient setting and are covered under Medicare Part B. Chemotherapy drugs administered in a doctor's office or clinic normally fall under Part B. Medication from a retail pharmacy or by mail fall under your PDP. This is why most of us chose a Medicare supplement plan in 2018. Bob Vineyard, independent Medicare insurance broker in Georgia, can explain your Georgia Medicare insurance options and will allow you to decide. We represent several carriers including Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Humana and more. According to the Mayo clinic, "new cancer treatments are routinely priced at over $100,000 per year of treatment."

Medigap vs Medicare Advantage plan
 
03:16
-- click here- https://Medigaplist.com _____ Explanation of Medicare advantage vs Medicare Supplement/Medigap plans. Medicare advantage plans can without a doubt lower your monthly spending if you are HEALTHY! If you notice the key to that sentence is if you are healthy. Medicare Supplements are very popular with doctors because they pay their bills on time and they don't argue the cost, because they can't. Lets take a look at the comparison between the Blue Cross Medicare Advantage plan in Pennsylvania and the Aetna Medicare Supplement Plan F. One advantage plan from Blue Cross (HMO) has a zero premium. The out of pocket cost for the year could possibly be over $6500 for a year. It may cost you $20 for a doctor visit or $200 per day in the hospital etc etc. The point is it is $0 for the premium which gets everyone excited, but if you need to get a surgery done in December, it could cost you $6000 out of pocket. Also, the hospital may or may not take the Medicare Blue Cross Advantage plan. The Advantage Plan from Blue Cross that is "0″ premium is an HMO plan and some hospitals and doctors won't take it. The Medicare supplement plan F from Aetna is a Medigap plan that could cost around $150-$200 a month premium depending on if your a Male or Female, what zip code you live in etc. The difference is, the out of pocket cost for Medicare approved procedures is "0″. Also, any hospital that excepts Medicare has to except the Medigap plan F from Aetna. Also, this Medigap supplement Plan F could be from any company including, KSKJ life, Family Life, Mutual of Omaha, New Era, ANTEX, AARP, etc etc. The out of pocket cost is going to be your premium not copays and deductibles. The bottom line is do you want to pay in the front or in the back. Do you want to pay a zero premium and pay deductibles and copays, or do you want zero deductibles and copays with a higher premium. Your going to pay either way. Put your zip code into Medigaplist and we can give you the best Medigap rates possible.

Medicare Part D
 
03:44
Medicare Part D Part D of Medicare provides prescription drug coverage. You can get this coverage with a stand-alone prescription drug plan or with a Medicare Advantage plan that includes prescription drug coverage. Both options are offered by private health insurance companies. The types of drugs most commonly prescribed are covered by Part D and determined by federal standards. Specific brand name drugs and generic drugs are named in the plan’s formulary. What is a formulary? A formulary is a list of drugs covered by a plan. Each plan may choose the specific brand name and generic drugs to be offered on its formulary, but Medicare sets guidelines for the types of drugs to be covered. In addition, drug plans feature a tiered formulary based on cost. In general, drugs on lower tiers cost less and the drugs in the higher tiers cost more. Some drug plans may charge a deductible which may apply to all tiers or only to certain tiers. Tips to get the most value from your drug plan: Know the Formulary Making sure your drugs are covered by the formulary is very important. Choosing a plan without considering the formulary is by far the biggest mistake people make, which results in hundreds or even thousands of dollars being spent to purchase drugs not covered by the formulary. Consider Generics When you schedule an appointment to visit your doctor, be sure to take your formulary directory with you. Ask about generic or low-cost options if your drug is in a high tier or is too expensive. Use Mail Order Most drug plans offer savings when you order a 3 month supply at once, not to mention the convenience mail order offers. Use a network pharmacy Most drug plans offer a preferred pharmacy network to help reduce the cost to purchase your prescriptions. You may use just about any pharmacy, but using a preferred pharmacy may be a better choice. You may qualify for assistance Medicare offers a program for people with limited incomes who need help paying for Part D premiums, deductibles and co-pays. What do you pay for Part D? What you pay depends on many things such as the premium. Some plans may charge a deductible. You will also pay co-pays which vary based on the plan’s formulary tiers. High-cost prescriptions may require you to pay up to a 33% coinsurance. Keep in mind that just because a plan may feature a low monthly premium, this plan may not be suitable for your prescription list. Don’t forget the formulary list. If you pick a formulary that does not cover your drug, you will pay the retail cost – this is the biggest mistake people make. To help you determine your lowest “True Out of Pocket” – a combination of your plan premium PLUS the cost to purchase your prescriptions - we use the Medicare website. Your hometown may offer 50 or more drug plan options, so how do you know which plan will offer the lowest true out of pocket? Why take a chance? Let us do this for you and avoid making the wrong choice. Finally, drug plans may change from year to year. Formularies may change, drug tiers may change, and the premiums may change. Be sure to get a “Drug Plan Checkup” each year. You may switch your drug plan each year between October 15th through December 7th.

Senior Nation: Maryland Retirees Must Change Their Drug Coverage Plans Soon
 
02:39
A significant change in the Maryland retirement policy takes place at the end of the year is one that will separate prescription drug coverage from the state's retiree health plan. This is a very big deal for the thousands of Medicare-eligible state retirees who must enroll in its Part D medication coverage plan by December 31 to continue their drug coverage. What makes this even more difficult is that official rates for those plans will not be announced until October just as open enrollment begins.  The good news is that  Maryland's Insurance Assistance Programs staff in each Mid-Shore county will be offering workshops and individual consulting for those impacted. The Spy state down with Talbot County's program counselor Pam Limberry for a quick check in on this important revision in coverage.

Turning 65 - What you need to know about enrolling in Medicare
 
05:18
If you're turning 65, this video will help you enroll in Medicare and choose a plan that fits your needs. We'll cover how Medicare works and how to enroll. We'll also go over when to enroll, penalties and supplement plans. You'll understand how Medicare works. This is Medicare made simple. Get your FREE Medicare Strategy Guide Here: http://bit.ly/medicarestrategy ************************************ Have Questions? Give us a call 480-382-1823 More about working with Jared and MedicareInc.com https://www.medicareinc.com/contact-us.html ************************************ Are you turning 65? Then you probably have some questions about Medicare. It’s simple and easy when you know the right steps. We teach simple strategies to save you money and maximize your Medicare benefits. One of the most important decisions you’ll make when turning 65 is choosing the right Medicare plan. Here are the 5 steps to successfully enrolling in Medicare for the first time. Step number 1 is Understanding How Medicare Works. Now, there are 4 parts to Medicare…Part A, B, C & Part D. The easiest way to remember how each part works is to think of it this way. If you have an emergency, an ambulance will pick you up and take you to… “A”, the hospital. When you’re released from the hospital they’ll tell you to follow up with your…”B” primary doctor. Part C is known as Medicare Advantage, we’ll look at that in just a moment, and part D covers your prescription medications…or “D” for drugs. Now that you know the basics of how Medicare works let’s look at step number 2…Knowing how to enroll in Medicare. Enrolling in Medicare is simple. Just call your local social security office. They’ll determine your eligibility and even walk you through the whole process. Once you’re enrolled you’ll receive your red, white, and blue Medicare card in the mail within 30 days. Your coverage will begin on the first day of the month you turn 65. Step number 3. When To Enroll In Medicare You have a 7 month window to enroll in Medicare for the first time. This Enrollment window begins three months before your 65th birthday and lasts for 7 months. So what exactly does that mean? It means you can enroll in Medicare when you’re 64 and 9 months old. So let’s say you’re turning 65 in July, you can sign up as early as April 1st but no later than October 31st. This 7-month window is only offered to you once. If you don’t enroll during this period, you may end up paying a late penalty. Here’s a tip: Don’t delay, Have your coverage working for you the very first day of your birth month. Take advantage of the time given to you and enroll before you turn 65. Step number 4. Prescription Drug Coverage or (Part D) Many people are unaware they must enroll in a Part D prescription drug plan once they become eligible for Medicare, even if they currently do not take medication or need prescriptions. If you delay enrollment in a Medicare prescription drug plan when you’re first eligible, you may have to pay a late-enrollment penalty. Keep in mind this IS NOT a one-time penalty, the penalty is annual and can increase each year. The good news is Medicare has a variety of prescription drug plans available. To find the right plan, go to www.medicare.gov. Click on find drug plans, and within a few minutes, you’ll be able to shop around for the right plan to fit your needs and your budget. And finally, step number 5. The Coverage Gap It’s important to know that Medicare A&B only covers about 80% of your Medicare bills, this is known as the coverage Gap. The good news is you have two options to cover this 20% gap. Option 1: Medicare Advantage (Part C) Medicare Advantage is limited to a network of Specialists, Doctors & Hospitals. Most of these plans have co-payments, co-insurance, and other out-of-pocket costs that can total up to $6,700 annually. Option 2: Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Medigap plans have low monthly premiums and no network, which allows you to choose any Specialist, Doctor or Hospital that accepts your red, white and blue Medicare card. There’s no co-pays, no co-insurance and no deductibles When comparing the two, Medigap plans offer the most protection and remain the most popular choice of coverage for people throughout the U.S. Thank you so much for watching…and if you have any questions about the content of this video or about maximizing your Medicare benefits, then download our free e-book, The Medicare Strategy Guide, In this guide, we cover the step by step process that we use to help people with their Medicare enrollment.

Medicare Part D Colorado 2
 
01:27
http://www.Medigaplist.com ----------------- There are so many Medicare plans to choose from when dealing with Medicare part D. So much confusion when it comes to the donut hole in Medicare. The premium cost of all of these plans are different, the co pays are different, the mail order pharmacies, the drugs, the Lipitor generic, the simvastatin. It goes on and on, and the one general consensus is that Medicare Part D prescription drug plans are just darn confusing. Rocky mountain health plans in Colorado are easier to figure out than the drug plans for Part D. The first step is to get your Medicare A and B card. If you already have that taken care of and you have a Medicare supplement plan in place the battle is almost won. Maybe it is the annual enrollment period and you simply want to change your drug plan or switch from a Medicare advantage plan. Maybe you just are tired of running your drugs through the system only to find out the Medicare approved part D plans are all expensive. My advice is to get a broker to help you through this. Why is it that people always want to do things themselves? It doesn't cost you anything more to get a Medicare broker to walk you through this time period. If you want Medicare Part D info and you are tired of looking around then call us at Medigaplist. We can help. So many people have asked me what the best Medicare drug plan is and I always tell them it is different for everyone. The AARP drug plan from United Healthcare is the best Medicare drug plan in Colorado for certain people. Humana is the best Medicare Part D plan for someone else. It really depends on the drugs you take. If you take Lisinopril to treat high blood pressure aka hypertension, or you take another ACE inhibitor, the plan isn't going to be the samer Part D Medicare plan that someone taking Actos or Avandia. Omeone who is taking Valium or a Xanax obviously has a different condition than someone taking Altocor, lovastatin or Crestor. Would you take Aviane or a ethinyl estradiol/levonorgestrel for your back pain; I don't think so. oyu need to get a list of Medicare Part D drug plans and compare the premiums. You also want to compare the best Medigap plan F and see if you can save money on your supplemental Medigap plan. The bottom line is you want the best Medigap plan F or Plan G you can find if it's affordable, you want a great Medicare part D plan, you need to make sure you can handle the Medicare Part A and B premium, and you want a good dental plan from a company such as Delta Dental. Go above a put in your zip code and the click the view rates button to see your Medicare and Medigap premiums in any part of the country including but not limited to Colorado Springs, Denver , Boulder and Jefferson County.

Medicare and Medigap Enrollment Period
 
05:27
http://Medigaplist.com When can you sign up for Medicare? When can you sign up for Medigap? This tells you. There are many health insurance options for people over 65 years old. Some people choose to stay on their corporate company medical plan. Others choose to get HSA coverage. A health savings account coverage for people over sixty five is an option. Others choose to just get Medicare Part A. Some people are lucky enough to have a spouse that works and gets benefits from his/her job that covers the whole family. Some people choose to get Medicare A &B with a Medigap plan. The enrollment period for people that want to get Medicare A&B is 3 months prior to their 65th birthday and 3 months after. Now the real question is when are you getting on Medicare Part B????? The reason that this is such an important question is because if you are getting health benefits from another place (retirement package, spouse, etc) and it is free of charge or a low cost, then you want to evaluate whether you want Medicare Part B. Part B from Medicare makes all the difference in your Medicare package. If you decide you don't want Medicare you must decline Part B. Medicare Part A is given to people who have worked enough hours to get access to the Medicare program and it's free of charge. Whether you want Medicare or not, if you have earned enough Medicare credits, they will give you Medicare Part A. Medicare Part B on the other hand, most people have to pay for and it is an amount that is determined by your income. If you decline Medicare Part B, then you are really not on "Medicare" in real terms. You will not lose your Medicare open enrollment status, you will not pay any penalties for Medicare Part D, you will be able to come into Medicare at a later date....smooth sailing. So what's the big deal about Medicare Part B? Everything!!! If you are not on it, you will not need a Medigap plan. You also will not need a Medicare advantage plan. You most likely won't need a Part D prescription drug plan, and you won't be hit with any penalties. If you want to get on Medicare and want the Original Medicare "package" you will have to take these steps: 1. Get your Medicare A and B card set up right at 3 moths before your 65th birthday 2. Call a Medicare Supplement agent like Medigaplist.com and see the different prices for Medigap Plan F or Medigap Plan G. ( or any other plan that is available) 3. Choose a company that supplies that Medigap plan in your state ( Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, Kansas etc are all different) Make sure you look at some well known companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, AARP, Mutual Of Omaha, Aetna. Also look at some smaller companies such KSKJ life, Royal Neighbors of America, Forethought, Medico etc. 4. Choose a prescription drug plan with a good company with low deductibles and copays. Many companies have drug plans such as AARP, Aetna, Blue Cross and Medico. 5 . And get an agent that really understands the system. We at Medigap list understand how the system works and you don't get charge any more than you would going directly to a company. Come on you say? Try us out. We give you a list of Medigap companies with the best rates. You compare prices with the cheap Medicare Supplements and shop around to beat the price if need be. You will see we can't be beat on price or service. Do all Medicare Supplement plans have price increases? Check us out. You can call your Medigap list agent every year to compare Medigap prices if you like. It's all free of charge. Start now by viewing your rates up top.

Turning 65? Who is Bob Vineyard? - Georgia Medicare Plans

What is Georgia Medicare Plans and Who is Bob Vineyard? Call (404) 252-5859 to speak with me, Bob Vineyard. I will personally answer your Medicare questions. Never any charge. Free, online instant GA Medigap quotes - http://gamedigapquotes.com/ I'm a Baby Boomer who is also enrolled in Medicare. Over the last 40+ years I have worked in the health insurance industry. Starting on the corporate side, working for insurance carriers, then later working one on one as a consultant to business owners and CFO's. Learn about Medicare supplement plans for 2018 in the comfort of your home. My videos and phone conversations have helped thousands of people learn about Medigap insurance. Many of them choose to become clients, allowing us to be their agent, and guide them through the Medicare maze. Do you have questions about Medicare? What is original Medicare? What is the difference in a supplement plan and Medigap? Can you explain how Medicare Advantage plans work? Do I need a Medicare Advantage plan AND a supplement plan? When should I enroll in Medicare? If I don't sign up at age 65, is there a penalty? When is the best time to enroll in a Medicare supplement plan? Can I change Medigap plans during the annual open enrollment? Can ANYONE explain the Medicare drug plans? What is a donut hole? Why do I need a drug plan? What exactly is Medicare Part D? How does Medicare work? Bob Vineyard explains in this Georgia Medicare Minute video If you are turning 65 and enrolling in Medicare, this may be your only chance to purchase a Medigap plan. Here is your guide to understanding GA Medicare. You don't have to receive Social Security to enroll in Medicare insurance. CMS is the agency that oversees Medicare. Senior healthcare insurance is commonly used to describe Medicare. How to enroll in Medicare? You may sign up for Medicare 3 months before your 65th birthday, the month you turn 65, and 3 months following your 65th birthday. You may enroll online (highly recommended), by mail or by visiting a Social Security office. Original Medicare has 4 parts. Medicare Part A covers hospital inpatient charges and has a per admission deductible Medicare Part B is for outpatient health care treatment. Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most seniors worry about hospital stays, but your major expenses will more than likely fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses. Original Medicare stand alone has no cap on your out of pocket expenses. You pay until you run out of money, get well or die. Medicare Part C is now referred to as Medicare Advantage. More on that later. Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs. Some Advantage plans have drug coverage built into the plan. Medigap and Advantage plans cover the same things, but what you pay out of pocket for your care, and where you receive your care, is very different. Original Medicare does not have networks. You can use any doctor or hospital anywhere in the US. Another plus is the ABN form which is only used with Original Medicare. Advantage plans are managed care plans. Some are PPO, some are HMO. In 2018 about half the plans are HMO with the balance being PPO. If you receive non-emergency out of network care under a PPO you may have higher copay’s and deductibles. Your max OOP may also be higher. Some plans do not cap out of network charges. Non-emergency out of network care charges may be denied if you have an HMO. In 2018 most Advantage plans issued in Georgia limit your out of pocket for approved in network health care expenses to $6700. The American Cancer Society tells us that more than half the 1.4 million new cancer diagnoses occur in people age 65 and older. Roughly 20% of retiree deaths are a result of cancer. Medicare pays for almost half of the $74 billion spent on cancer treatment. The elderly account for 70% of cancer deaths each year. Some cancer centers, such as Mayo Clinic, Sloan Kettering and MD Anderson may not participate in certain Medicare Advantage plans. We represent several carriers including Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Humana and more. According to the Mayo clinic, "new cancer treatments are routinely priced at over $100,000 per year of treatment."

Visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MedicareWebinars/ ...... That leaves us with Medigap Plan N. Medigap Plan N is the unsung hero of Medicare Supplements. It packs a lot of coverage into a very well-priced, low-cost package. On average, a Medigap Plan N will cost between 25% and 35% less than a Plan F, saving $600 or more in annual premiums. How is a Plan N different that the complete coverage of a Plan F? Medigap Plan N is different than a Medigap Plan F is three ways. First, you pay the annual Medicare Part B deductible. That deductible is just $166 per year as of 2016. It may be more or less in the years ahead. Only Medigap Plan F and Medigap Plan C pay that Medicare Part B deductible, and that is why those two plans will be discontinued as of 2020. Medigap Plan N and all other Medicare Supplements require you to pay the annual Medicare Part B deductible. It’s just $166 and it’s no big deal compared to the hundreds of dollars you save in premiums. The second way Medicare Supplement Plan N is different that a Medicare Supplement Plan F is that with Plan N you pay up to a $20 co-pay when you visit the doctor and a $50 co-pay for an emergency room visit unless you are admitted to the hospital. If you see a doctor a couple times per year, a $20 co-pay is a fair exchange for the hundreds of dollars in lower premium. The third and final way that a Medicare Supplement Plan N is different that a Medigap Plan F is that Medigap Plan N does not insure against Medicare Part B excess charges. Now, this scares a lot of people until they understand how inconsequential this feature really is. Only doctors who do not accept Medicare Assignment can charge a Medicare Part B excess charge. Medicare assignment simply means that Medicare assigns the price to the service. Only 3%, three out of 100 doctors do not accept Medicare Assignment which then allows them to bill an excess charge. All you have to do is ask your doctor if they accept Medicare Assignment. Odds are 97% that they do. If so, then that feature of a Plan N is of no concern. If your doctor is one of the three out of one-hundred that does not accept Medicare Assignment, simply request that they bill you only the assignment rates so that Medicare covers the cost of his or her services. It’s that simple. Most seniors on Medicare never encounter a doctor that does not accept Medicare Assignment in their entire life. There you have it. If you are considering a Medicare Supplement to add coverage to your Original Medicare, consider and price at least Medigap Plan F, Medigap Plan N and Medigap Plan F-HD. In states outside of Florida, also, consider Medigap Plan G (detailed in a separate article). To find the best prices for each of these plans, simply complete a quote request.
