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?

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.

A question we hear often from customers is, what does Medicare Part C cover? Medicare Part C is typically referred to as Medicare Advantage. These plans are offered by private insurance companies that contract with Medicare as an alternative way to get your Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). Many Medicare Advantage plans also include Medicare Part D. In addition to your Part B premium, some plans – but not all - require an additional monthly premium for the Medicare Advantage plan's medical and prescription drug coverage. Please keep in mind that not all plan types are available in every area. The benefits on these plans can change from year to year, so you have the option to change your Medicare coverage every year during Medicare’s Annual Election Period – or AEP. Medicare’s Annual Election Period runs from October 15 to December 7 each year. Medicare has neither reviewed nor endorsed this information. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Follow eHealth at: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eHealth Twitter: https://twitter.com/eHealth _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

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.

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.

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.

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.

What is Medicare Advantage? Complete Medicare Resource Center here: http://www.medsupsavings.com/ 877-88KEITH (53484) Medicare Advantage Plans and Important Points You Must Know Medicare advantage plans help consumers pay for related services through private plan options chosen by the consumer. Also known as Part C there is some confusion about how it is used and classified. Advantage plans are available through private companies approved by Medicare. They are network plans featuring PPO and HMO service options. There are different plans that offer different levels of coverage and they can include a wide range of services. This is a popular option since people can choose their doctor and hospital, as long as they are in network with your plan. Here is a list of points to help you understand Medicare advantage plans in further detail. • This plan is available to those who enroll in Medicare. It is used with Part A and Part B. When you use these plans you have the same protection and rights as a Medicare recipient. • Enrollment for this coverage is done on an annual basis. There are specific times during the year to sign up for coverage. This could occur prior to turning 65 years old, if you enroll at the beginning of the year for Part A or B, or if you have a disability while being under age 65. If you have a preexisting condition you may still qualify for coverage. • You can learn services covered with the plan before getting the service. This helps you save of costs and you have an idea of what you may be responsible for when the service is completed. • Check your plan before seeing a specialist to ensure their services are part of network coverage. You will be responsible for paying related costs not covered by your plan. You plan may have rules in place you should follow regarding referrals. • If you use an HMO (health maintenance organization) or PPO (preferred provider organization) your costs may be higher if related services are not covered in your plan. This includes services through health care provider or doctor. You could pay more for services if they are not in network. • Even though you can choose a provider part of your plan’s network, they can choose to leave the network anytime. The plan can also make changes to providers offering care in your network. This means you will need to consider another provider when they decide to leave. • Costs related to clinical research studies may be covered. You will need to review plan details carefully or contact your plan for additional details on what, if anything, is covered. • Certain costs related to Medicare Advantage Plans should not exceed costs found in Part A and Part B coverage. This may include skilled nursing services and dialysis for example. • The Advantage plan will pay for all medical costs after you satisfy out-of-pocket costs for the year. The amount of out-of-pocket costs varies by plan and what you pay is based on your needs and income. • You have the option to select another Medicare plan if the plan you select through the Advantage plans changes or is no longer part of Medicare. ================================================== QUICK AND EASY MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT QUOTES http://www.medsupsavings.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Med-Sup-Savings/1709195569306815 Twitter: https://twitter.com/MedSupSavings LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/keith-armbrecht/5/11b/3a0 YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/BigHealthGreatWealth

The PERS can give members, their families, and their loved ones peace of mind should they fall or need emergency assistance when they’re home alone. The Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP) began October 15, 2017, and continues through December 7, 2017... “Giving our members access to a personal emergency response system is part of our continued commitment to helping our members live the life they’ve earned,” said Josh Martin, Medicare president of Anthem’s West region. “The system will help give our members the ability to maintain their independence and delay, or possibly eliminate, the need to utilize assisted living services.” With the PERS, when an individual contacts the service by pushing a button located on a neck pendant or wrist band, representatives from the service will try to contact the member to identify the kind of assistance needed. Depending on the results of that outreach, the PERS representative may contact a designated caregiver, a clinician, or local emergency services. http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171026005494/en/Anthem-Blue-Cross-Medicare-Advantage-Members-California CLICK HERE: https://Local-Medicare-Agent.youcanbook.me ---------------------------------------- More Information about Medicare, Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D: Medicare - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medicare_(United_States) In the United States, Medicare is a single-payer, national social insurance program administered by the U.S. federal government since 1966, currently using ..

How does Medicare work? Which is better? Medicare supplement or Medicare Advantage? Can I switch from Advantage to a supplement plan during open enrollment? Independent Medicare insurance agent Bob Vineyard weighs in with this video. https://www.youtube.com/c/GeorgiaMedicarePlans Turning 65? Can't decide if original Medicare and a Medigap plan are best for you, or should you enroll in an Advantage plan? Medicare says the best time to enroll in a supplement plan is when you are first eligible. If you buy a plan during your initial enrollment period you cannot be turned down, even if you have pre-existing medical conditions. After your IEP has passed a Medigap carrier will review your medical history and either accept or reject your application. Medigap and Advantage plans have similarities and differences. Both are senior health insurance plans. Anything that would be covered by original Medicare is also a covered expense with an MA plan. However, your out of pocket costs may be significantly higher with Advantage compared with original Medicare and a supplement plan. Medicare Advantage plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are managed care plans offered by insurance carriers. CMS oversees this program and approves the plans before they can be sold in Georgia. The plans are also rated by Medicare based on a number of factors, including policyholder input. These managed care plans offered in Georgia are either a PPO or HMO. Both have provider networks and rules that must be followed if you want to minimize your out of pocket costs. With a PPO plan if you use a non-par provider you may not only have higher copay's and deductibles, but your OOP costs may be higher. Use a non-par provider when you have an HMO plan and your claim may not be paid at all unless you received emergency care. Original Medicare does not have networks. You can use any doctor, lab or hospital in the U.S. as long as they participate in Medicare. A recent study found that 96% of primary care providers participate in Medicare. You are free to go almost anywhere in the country without worry. Some well know cancer treatment centers do not accept Medicare Advantage plans but all participate in Medicare. Not all cancer can be treated with chemotherapy, but 80% of cancer patients will have chemo. Your chemotherapy drugs will be treated in the doctors office or a clinic. Chemotherapy falls under Part B if you have original Medicare and a Medigap plan. Cancer treatment is covered by Advantage plans but your out of pocket cost could run in the thousands of dollars. If you are trying to decide which Medicare supplement plan to buy, plan G delivers more value than plan G. Probably 90% of my clients have the G plan. 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." I enrolled in Medicare in September, 2015. Cancer is a word I know too well. My mothers twin sister and older sister died of cancer. My wife’s father and mother died because of cancer. All 5 of my father-in-laws siblings died of cancer. Two of my mother-in-laws siblings died of cancer. I have seen what cancer can do to the human body and the misery that accompanies this dread illness. If you are diagnosed with cancer, the last thing on your mind should not be “How will I pay for my treatment?” I know how quickly things can change. When my health changes I want to control the direction of my care. Insurance carriers are not going to give me a list of doctors and tell me this year I can only use these, and next year the list may change. I am enrolled in original Medicare plus Medigap plan N.

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.

Review the Medicare Part D formulary to make sure all your prescriptions are covered... that should be your number one concern.

How will BCBST's cancellation of all of their individual plans in the Nashville market impact my family? The Facts as we know them today, September 28, 2016 Dear BCBST Individual Health Insurance Members in the Nashville Area, There are some big changes making headlines this week in Nashville, including the departure of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee’s individual and Marketplace plans from the Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville regions. It is important for everyone to understand the facts and the time-lines that may impact healthcare access for you and your family. We have also included a table of explanation below with a *special note for those currently undergoing treatment. 1. BCBST Group Plan Members (If your health insurance is obtained through your employer) – NO CHANGE. You will continue with your BCBST health insurance if your employer choses to continue with your group plan in 2017. 2. BCBST Individual/Private Market Plan Members – (if you have an individual plan NOT purchased through the Marketplace) – Plans will be cancelled effective 12/31/16 at midnight. You must choose a new health insurance plan by 12/15/16. As of today, Aetna, Cigna and Humana health insurance companies have plans in Nashville that include all hospitals and most doctors. We will not have prices available for these plans until November 1, 2016. 3. BCBST Obtained Through Healthcare.gov – (if you receive subsidies or reductions to help cover the cost of your health insurance and/or out-of-your-pocket medical expenses) – Plans will be cancelled effective 12/31/16 at midnight. You must choose a new health insurance plan by 12/15/16. As of today, Cigna and Humana health insurance companies have plans listed on the Marketplace that include Tri-Star hospitals only. DO NOT WORRY! Vanderbilt and Saint Thomas are actively negotiating with Cigna and Humana and the deadline to submit network changes by these companies is not until mid-October. There are 50,000 Nashvillians who are in the same boat as you and Vanderbilt and Saint Thomas do not want to lose you or your family as a patient. Therefore, all the facts are not available yet. We will not have prices available for these plans until November 1, 2016. 4. BCBST Medicare Advantage and Supplemental Plans - NO CHANGE. Your current coverage will continue as is. If you wish to make a change, Medicare open enrollment is between October 15 – December 7, 2016. *SPECIAL NOTE FOR THOSE CURRENTLY UNDERGOING ACTIVE TREATMENT FOR A SERIOUS CONDITION WHO OBTAINED HEALTH INSURANCE THROUGH HEALTHCARE.GOV: If your network DOES change (and this is an unknown until mid-Oct) and you are currently being treated as a patient at Vanderbilt or Saint Thomas, both Humana and Cigna will continue to cover your treatment with your current providers/hospitals for 120 days

Medicare Advantage plans have a secret life. The carrier won’t tell you. Neither will the agent. Click SHOW MORE for time stamps If you knew these secrets you might change your mind about signing up for one. Time Stamps 0:30 How can they be free? 1:00 I get calls 1:25 Get back on original Medicare 1:50 When are seniors most likely to LEAVE Advantage plans? 2:20 Advantage plans have thin networks Consider this. Why does if Medicare Advantage plans are so great, why does Medicare give you an escape clause? Why do some agents that sell you on the idea of an Advantage plan tell you to throw away your red, white and blue Medicare card? Why do agents push Medicare Advantage plans so much? Is there something you need to know that they aren’t telling? Do these Advantage plans really have a secret life? And how can they push these “Free” Medicare Plans? What’s the catch? Why is turning 65 so difficult when it comes to Medicare? Watch our video. There is no free lunch. There are no free Medicare plans. In fact, Medicare prohibits the use of the term “free” when referring to Medicare Advantage plans. Instead, they are called “no premium” or “zero premium” plans. How can that be? How can you pay no monthly premium (not including other out-of-pocket costs) and be enrolled in a plan that pays your claims and offers additional benefits? Medicare Advantage plans contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to take the financial responsibility for Medicare beneficiaries who enroll in their plans. In other words, you show your Medicare Advantage card when you get services as opposed to your red, white, and blue Medicare card. Since Medicare is no longer paying for your claims, the federal government pays a monthly amount (flat fee) to the insurance company to cover the costs of providing your health-care coverage. That monthly fee varies based on a member’s risk factors. Is Medicare Advantage the right choice for you? That is something you will need to decide once you have all the facts 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."
