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.

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?

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Vs. Aetna: Who is Better?
 
05:54
Next Step: http://hubs.ly/H01ndv70 Anthem and Aetna Policy and Plan Comparisons Now that we're done with the boring history lesson, let's start comparing these two health insurance heavy weights. It's possible Anthem is going for quantity over quality. They have 14 total plans (Inside and Out of the Marketplace) available for you to choose from in 2015. Bronze - 5 Silver - 7 Gold - 1 Platinum - 0 Catastrophic - 1 Aetna has the fewest number of plans of any health insurance company in Ohio with a grand total of five. Bronze - 2 Silver - 2 Gold - 1 Platinum - 0 Simple math will tell you Anthem is going to give you more choice. But having the most plans doesn’t make you the best. Just like having the least doesn’t make you the worst. It’s a matter if there’s one that works for you. Anthem and Aetna Doctor/Hospital Network Differences This is where both companies fall pretty far behind. There are other companies that haven’t let Obamacare get the best of them, like Anthem and Aetna. Those companies still offer a mostly unchanged network. Both Anthem and Aetna decided to significantly limit your choice of doctors and hospitals. Usually only leaving one major hospital network to choose from in your area. If they happened to pick your prefered hospital system, that might work. If not, than you might have some problems. You don't want to have to try and squint really hard to see a scenario where one of their plans make sense. The biggest risk you run with limited choice is not being able to see a top special if needed. As you'll see in the next section, if this could save you money, I might allow it. But, nine time out of 10 it's just not in the cards. Anthem and Aetna Pricing and Cost This is where things turn into a battle for last place. Both Anthem and Aetna have had little interest in offering competitive rates. There are companies like Medical Mutual and even InHealth Mutual that are cheaper. Also, don’t forget the network limitations both companies have. This has been the case for the last two years, with a few exceptions popping up here and there. Sometimes I would run a quote for a client and Anthem and Aetna would be in the ballpark, but rarely cheaper. If no major adjustments are made by either company in 2016 you can expect this trend to continue. The rate for 2016 should start to show up at the start of open enrollment on November 15.

Best Medicare Advantage Plan

Best Medicare Advantage Plan? Get FREE help with Medicare Advantage Plans http://medicaresavingsolutions.com/ 1-800-663-5707 How to choose the best Medicare Advantage Plan for you! What is the best Medicare Advantage Plan? This is a question I get almost every day. When I help someone choose a Medicare Advantage Plan that is best for their needs there are 5 main things we look for in the Medicare Advantage Plan (Medicare Part C Plan). The first thing you want to look for to find a good Medicare Advantage Plan is the Provider Network. In order to be a good plan for you it must have a large choice or network of providers. So when you choose the best Medicare Plan for you it is very important to make sure all of your Medical and Pharmacy providers are in the network. You may have a plan that allows you to see providers outside the network, but you will pay a higher cost share so it is best to stay in network if possible. The second thing I look for when helping someone select the best Medicare Advantage Plan for their needs is the Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage. We always make sure to look up all the medications a person has to help determine which plan will cover them all and give the lowest out of pocket costs. You also want to be sure that the plan will cover prescriptions that may pop up in the future as well. Medical Coverage is the third thing to look for. We always compare the medical coverage on the Medicare Advantage plans available in a clients area. One key factor in comparing Medicare plans is to look for coverages in plans where your out of pocket costs are limited to a specific dollar amount. This makes it easier to determine what you will be paying for services. It is much harder to estimate costs if your out of pocket portion is determined by a percentage of the total Medicare approved amount. Monthly cost is the fourth thing we look at. Some may say that the monthly cost is one of the most important factors in choosing the best Medicare Advantage Plan. This can be true because there are some plans out there that while they may have better coverage than some others, they can be way overpriced. You want to make sure the difference benefits make up for the difference in monthly premium. There is a large misconception that there are FREE Medicare Advantage Plans, it is true that there are $0 premium Medicare Advantage Plans out there, but there are out of pocket costs associated with the plans. If there is a higher cost Medicare Advantage Plan that you are considering then before you sign up for that plan it is a good idea to compare that with the best Medicare Supplement plan in the area. There are many Advantage Plans that are so high in monthly cost that it is better to choose a Medicare Supplement Plan that would give you much better Medical coverage. In my opinion one of the most important factors to determine the Medicare Advantage Plan that is right for someone is the Company they go with. You want to look for a plan with a larger reputable company that has been in the Medicare Advantage business for a while. There are a lot of small companies that pop up everywhere just to get a piece of the pie. They may be good for you for a year and then bad the next and you'd have to go through the whole process of finding a plan again. You want to avoid switching Medicare Advantage Plans every year. It can lead to a lot of issues for you because every Medicare Advantage plan has different networks, different prescription coverage, different health coverage, and many other things that could cause problems. You could end up needing to change medications or providers. If you do change plans just make sure you prepare for those differences and also prepare to get new referrals if your plan requires them. Another big tip I have for people with a Medicare Advantage Plan is "Don't get sold"! A lot of agents will convince you that you should change your plan over a 5 or 10 dollar difference in copays, premiums, or some other minor difference. This can cause problems like I mentioned before, unless there is a major change in your plan then "don't fix what isn't broken"! Don't get sold a plan, always make sure it is 100% in your best interest. At Medicare Saving Solutions we are independent agents and help hundreds of seniors every year find the best Medicare Advantage Plan for their needs.

PPO Vs. HMO: What's the Difference and Which is Better?
 
05:04
Next Step: Take the PPO Vs. HMO test for yourself - http://www.giangolainsurance.com/health-insurance-after-obamacare-ohio What Does PPO Mean? PPO stands for Prefered Provider Organization. This type of plan offers a higher level of reimbursements when you receive treatment from a “preferred” doctor or hospital. In less fancy insurance terms, you pay less. This is also known as your health insurance company’s network. These “preferred” providers offer their services to you at a cheaper rate if they’re in your insurance company’s network. You even have the ability to see non “prefered” doctors with this plan, they are just consider out-of-network doctors. PPO’s have dominated the health insurance landscape for the last 10-15 years. What Does HMO Mean? HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. This plan type works a little different from a PPO. Instead of being able to choose from a list of doctors at a wide array of facilities, you are strictly limited to doctors and facilities contracted with that health insurance company. The goal of this plan structure is to have a primary physician manage your care. The most famous example of an HMO structure is the company HealthSpan, formerly known as Kaiser Permanente. These plans generally are less expensive than a PPO plan, however that is in exchange for a limited selection of doctors and hospitals. Let’s Take a Closer Look So I’ll ask you again, how many doctors do you want to be able to see if something really bad happens? The answer to that question is the answer to your internal PPO vs. HMO debate. But if you want to go even deeper, here’s what you need to think about. When does a HMO plan Make Sense? This is a hard question to answer since it will always come down to personal preference. But, this is how I like to explain it to clients. If there is a HMO plan that has doctors close to your home that you like and trust and also has an adequate number of hospital facilities, that’s a decent first step. You also need to be able to save a considerable amount of money on your health insurance payment every month. Finding both of those together is the tricky part. I have yet to see a HMO plan that offers enough savings to consider recommending one to a client. When you only save a couple dollars every month, you have to ask yourself if it is really worth it to limit yourself that severely when it matters the most. I've never been able to answer yes to that question for a client.

Step-by-Step How-To Provider Search: Aetna Medicare Advantage
 
03:02
This video will take you through step-by-step on how to look up providers that are "in-network" with Aetna Medicare Advantage Plan.
Understanding Healthcare Costs: Medicare Advantage
 
04:01
Medicare Advantage is an insurance program that invites private payors, including health plans and insurance companies, to offer alternatives to traditional Medicare. By providing access to the private insurance market, Medicare Advantage gives beneficiaries the option to choose from a wide range of competing plans, many of which offer richer benefits than Medicare. This video explains how Medicare Advantage works. Video transcript Medicare Advantage is part of the U.S. Medicare system, which is a federal health insurance program that covers 50 million elderly and disabled Americans. Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C, differs from traditional Medicare in that it doesn't define categories of health coverage in the same way as Medicare parts A, B, and D. Instead, it's a special program that invites private payors, including health plans and insurance companies, to provide alternatives to traditional Medicare insurance. As with traditional Medicare, eligibility for Medicare Advantage includes most U.S. residents over age 65, as well as certain nonelderly people with disabilities. While traditional Medicare is administered directly by the federal government, under Medicare Advantage, the government contracts with private payors. At minimum, these payors are required to provide the same level of coverage outlined in Medicare Parts A and B, and typically they provide Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, as well. By providing access to the private insurance market, Medicare Advantage gives beneficiaries the option to choose from a wide range of competing plans, many of which offer richer benefits. A growing number of Medicare beneficiaries are opting for Medicare Advantage. Twenty-seven percent are currently covered by Advantage plans, and enrollment is expected to continue to increase in 2013. All Medicare Advantage plans are funded by federal Medicare dollars—but some plans require members to pay an additional premium. The premium is determined by the benefits provided and the federal reimbursements in the area where the plan is offered. Medicare has specific rules for how Advantage plans are priced. Each county has its own payment benchmarks, as well as different benefit and premium combinations. Each spring and summer, Medicare Advantage plans participate in a bid process that establishes the terms of contract between the payor and the federal government for the next calendar year. Before bids are submitted, plans project member health statuses, costs, revenue from the federal government, and member premium. These projections serve as the basis for the bids, which define the benefits to be offered in each plan. Once the bid process is complete, members are told what the premiums and benefits will be for each plan in the coming year. During the eight week open-enrollment period for Medicare Advantage, beneficiaries must consider a number of variables to decide on a plan that best suits their healthcare needs and budget. In addition to monthly premiums, benefit options, and out-of-pocket limits, they must also consider network composition and plan type. If provider choice is important to them, they may opt for a plan that features either a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) structure rather than a more restrictive HMO. Beneficiaries will also want to consider how flexible a plan is with respect to authorizing prescriptions. While most plans provide for prescription drug coverage, not all of them will pay for all pharmaceuticals. Within each class of drugs, plans may cover only a limited number of drugs. Ultimately, those looking for more comprehensive benefits may gravitate toward the Medicare Advantage program.

Medicare Supplements - 5 Things To Know Before You Buy A Medicare Supplemental Policy
 
07:00
Call (888) 310-0376 to Compare All Medicare Supplement Plans in Your State. Get Instant Access http://free-mini-course.com I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Supplements before you buy. As far as Medicare Plans go, Medicare supplemental coverage is a little easier to understand than Medicare Advantage. So what is Medicare supplement insurance and how does it work? Medicare supplemental insurance is also known as Medigap. It is private health insurance designed to supplement original Medicare by helping to pay some of your share of costs for Medicare-covered services. Medicare supplement plans are standardized insurance policies and are designated by the letters A through N. Standardization means that the same plan will generally have identical benefits no matter which company sells it. The second thing you should be aware of is that Medicare supplements are different than Medicare Advantage plans. While a Medigap policy pays your share of costs after Medicare pays, an Advantage Plan is another way to get your Medicare benefits and these benefits are paid by the plan. Medicare Advantage Plans are often PPOs or HMOs and require you to receive services from network providers. Medicare supplement policies on the other hand allow you in most cases (except Medicare Select) to choose your own providers without network restrictions. You cannot be canceled from your supplement unless you stop paying premiums. Advantage Plans are good for one year and require you to renew annually. Get Instant Access - http://free-mini-course.com - Unlock the information you need to choose the best plan for your circumstances. The third thing you should know is when you can buy a Medicare supplement. The best time to buy is during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period which lasts for 6 months and begins when you are both 65 or older and eligible for Part B. This in the best time to buy because an insurance company cannot: Refuse to sell you any policy it sells Make you wait for coverage Charge you more due to health problems Another time to get Medicare supplemental coverage is when you are entitled to Guaranteed Issue Rights. These rights are triggered by a change in your circumstances, such as; your Medicare Advantage Plan leaving Medicare or not renewing for the following year or your employer or Union group insurance is ending. The fourth thing you should know is how to compare Medicare Supplement Plans. Standardization make comparing plans easy. Once you look at the Medicare supplement benefits chart you will be able to see what is covered by each plan and then compare that plan across several companies. Fifth, you need to be aware that Medicare supplement rates can vary widely between plans. It's not uncommon to see $100 or more difference in monthly premiums for the same plan. Plans that are worthy of consideration include Medicare supplement Plan F and Plan N. Plan F is the most popular nationally and the most comprehensive. Medicare supplement Plan N is a good option if you can handle a little out-of-pocket expense. When comparing Medicare supplement policies remember that the best Medicare supplement is the one that fits your budget and gives you the most bang for your buck.

These plans pay all of your Medicare Part A hospital insurance and Medicare Part B medical insurance. Most Medicare Advantage plans also include prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D). Additionally, many of these plans also include vision, hearing, dental and/or health and wellness coverage. Medicare Advantage plans must cover all services that Original Medicare offers, with the exception of hospice care and dialysis treatment in association with end stage kidney failure. In many cases, Medicare Advantage coverage is free to the consumer. However, depending on benefits, some MA plans do have a monthly premium attached. You can only join Medicare Advantage programs during the Annual Open Enrollment period each year.

8 Steps to Picking the Right Medicare Plans During Open Enrollment | Medicare Open Enrollment 2018
 
10:15
8 Steps to Picking the Right Medicare Plans During Open Enrollment | Medicare Open Enrollment 2018 Most people fill Medicare’s coverage gaps by buying a Medicare supplement (medigap) plan and a Part D prescription-drug plan, or they get both medical and drug coverage from a private insurer with a Medicare Advantage plan. You have from October 15 to December 7 each year to pick a Medicare Part D prescription-drug plan or a Medicare Advantage plan for the year ahead. You can switch from one Part D plan to another, or from one Medicare Advantage plan to another. You can also switch into a Medicare Advantage plan. However, if you have Medicare Advantage and want to switch to a medigap plan plus a Part D plan, you may have limited medigap options depending on your health—although you can choose any Part D plan during open enrollment. The plan that was best for you over the past year may not be the best one next year. That may be because the drugs you take or the doctors you see have changed. Or it may be because the coverage has changed under your plan for next year—your drugs may be moving to a more expensive pricing tier with higher co-payments, or your doctors may be leaving your Medicare Advantage plan’s network. Or new plans may be introduced in your area that are a better match for you. Aetna, for example, is introducing a new, low-premium Part D plan in 20 states, and United Healthcare is expanding its Medicare Advantage plans into 100 new counties in 2018. Because you can change plans every year, you can focus specifically on your drugs and dosages or the type of health care you need now; you can switch again next year if your needs or your options change. Let’s get started. Please leave your comments or feel free to discuss in the comments section. Your feedback will be appreciated. Thanks for watching!! Like ! Share ! Comment ! Subscribe !

Medicare Explained (2018)

Medicare Explained; the best video to explain Medicare covers what you need to know about Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B and the choices you have to make once you start Medicare. Medicare explained, Medicare Made Clear, Understanding Medicare. No matter how we word it, understanding Medicare is not always as easy as it looks. Matthew Claassen is an independent Medicare insurance broker licensed in 47-states. Call MedigapSeminars.org at 800-847-9680. My YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/medigapseminarsorg Visit: https://medigapseminars.org/ Get a free quote comparison: https://medigapseminars.org/medigap-plans-independent-medicare-insurance-broker/m-quote-request/ Contact Us: https://medigapseminars.org/contact-us/ In this video I am going help you learn about Medicare explained in an easy to understand format. By the end of this video Medicare will be made clear for you. You will understand how Medicare works. You will understand Medicare Part A & Medicare Part B and the choices you have to make once you sign up for Medicare. Once you sign up for Medicare you will have to choose from one of three options. We will go over each of those three options and pros and cons you should consider before you make a decision. Once you understand the Medicare basics of Part A and Medicare Part B, you will be faced with choosing one of three paths to take with your Medicare. This will be the most important Medicare decision you have to make because it could set you on a course that will impact the quality of your medical care and can potentially be irreversible. To keep this video brief, I have a separate video that covers how, when and where to sign up for Medicare Parts A & Medicare Part B. I have it linked in the upper right of this video, you’ll see a white circle with a letter “i”. You can click on that at any time to go to the video on how to sign up for Medicare. With terminology out of the way, next in the Medicare Explained video is Medicare Part A & Medicare Part B. Medicare Part A is that portion of your health insurance that pays for your healthcare whenever you are an inpatient in a medical facility. As soon as you become an inpatient in a hospital, Medicare Part A takes over. The same when you become an inpatient in a skilled nursing facility or hospice. The one exception is that if you are not able to physically get to a medical facility for healthcare, Medicare Part A also pays for home healthcare. Think of Medicare Part A is inpatient insurance. Medicare Part B is the part of Medicare that pays for outpatient and physician services. This is the portion Medicare insurance you use when you see a doctor or have lab tests or physical therapy and so on. Medicare Part B also includes some wellness coverage. Medicare Part B is the part of Medicare people use most often because most of our medical care is via outpatient services. Even many surgeries and hospital services are now done as an outpatient and are thus covered under Medicare Part B. Your Original Medicare (Part A & B) is good anywhere in the country. You can see any doctor, go to any medical facility in any state or territory, as long as they accept Medicare. You do not need to get permission from a primary care physician. You have both freedom to go where you need and control to see who you choose. Also it is important to understand that Medicare Advantage Plans are local coverage. If you are a snowbird, and RVer or just travel the country that should rule MAPD as an option. Next in our Medicare Explained video are your three choices. You can do one of three things: # 1 Do nothing. Just keep Original Medicare (Your Part A & B). This is the only choice that makes understanding those co-pays and deductibles very important. This is not an advisable choice because Original Medicare was never intended to be stand-alone health insurance. You will find when going over the details of the copays and the limits of the coverage that there is no maximum out-of-pocket limit on your potential financial obligation. You are at substantial financial risk. Still, this is a choice some people make. # 2 You can trade in your Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B for a Medicare Advantage Plan. Medicare Advantage plans are also called Medicare Part C. #3 Your third choice is to keep you Original Medicare Parts A & B, but add a Medicare supplement plan that pays the co-pays and deductibles that come with just Original Medicare, so you don’t have to.
