The real reason American health care is so expensive
 
05:42
Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

There’s car insurance, home insurance, life insurance, even pet insurance . . . Most of these insurance policies work well and are fairly priced. But there is one glaring exception: health insurance. Only health insurance becomes more complicated and more expensive at the same time. So, the obvious question is: why? To answer this question, we have to start at the beginning. What is insurance? It’s pretty straight-forward: You pay a monthly fee which provides financial protection against unforeseen, sometimes catastrophic, events. People buy homeowners insurance, for example, to protect themselves from the financial loss incurred in the event of a fire, a flood or theft. Because millions of people are paying into the insurance pool, the pool has enough money to cover the unlucky person whose house does burn down. And since insurance is meant to share risk, it only stands to reason that higher-risk individuals have to pay more to be insured. Someone who has had two accidents is going to pay more for car insurance than someone who has never had an accident. Why? Because their track record indicates they are more likely to have another accident. But while insurance provides a bulwark against unforeseen loss, it does not protect against routine expenses. Car insurance protects you in the event that you wind up in a car wreck or your vehicle is stolen, but it doesn’t cover routine maintenance like oil changes, replacing brake pads or tire erosion. Why? Because everyone needs routine oil changes, new brake pads, and new tires. So, there is no risk to protect against. Health insurance in America works very differently. Many of us have health insurance plans that aren’t insurance at all. They’re really pre-paid health care plans. They cover routine check-ups, less serious illnesses, and recurring expenses like prescription medications in addition to protecting you from a health disaster. All of this has made healthcare much more expensive and complex than any other form of insurance. That is true whether you get your insurance through your employer, through the government, or if you pay for your own plan. The Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, was passed on the promise that it would fix these issues and bring down healthcare costs. But it has actually made the problem much worse. First, it limited the variety of health insurance plans private companies could offer. It did this by mandating that every plan had to cover the same set of ten health benefits, including preventive care, maternity care, mental health care, and contraception. Second, Obamacare prevented insurers from charging premiums based on the risk they were assuming. A person with a much higher risk of getting sick couldn’t be charged more than a person with a much lower chance. These two aspects of Obamacare – requiring all policies to have certain coverages and not allowing insurance companies to charge more for riskier clients – caused the price of insurance to rise dramatically. In Arizona, for example, the price more than doubled between 2016 and 2017 alone. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-health-insurance-so-complicated

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.

How to Choose a Medicare Drug Plan - 1-877-88KEITH (53484)

How to Choose a Medicare Drug Plan. Complete Medicare Resource Center here: http://www.MedicareonVideo.com 1-877-88KEITH (53484) Important Points to Know about Obtaining Medicare Drug Coverage When enrolling for Medicare you can get coverage for prescription drugs. Medicare drug coverage is available through private insurance companies approved by Medicare. There are different ways to obtain the coverage with associated costs that vary depending on other coverage used with this plan. It is important to know how this works with other insurance you have in order to get the best coverage. Here is what you need to know about this option. How Do You Get Coverage You have two options to get drug coverage including through Medicare Part C Advantage Plan or through Part D Prescription Drug Plan. The most common way is through Part D. This plan can be used with original Medicare and other plan option such as a Medical Savings Account (MSA) or Medicare Cost Plans. Part C or Medicare Advantage Plan includes using a PPO or HMO along with benefits similar to Part A and B. You may be required to sign up for Part A and B in order to obtain Part D with Part C. Medicare drug coverage options may vary and could change depending on what Part C covers. Associated Costs and Getting Help Your income will determine how much you pay toward prescription drugs. If you receive Social Security you can have costs deducted from your Social Security payment. You may be required to satisfy an annual deductible before the drug coverage starts to pay. You may be required to pay a copay or coinsurance after paying a deductible (if your plan has this requirement). There are drug plans with different tiers that show how much you could pay depending on related costs. Generic drugs may have cheaper copay than name brand. The copay can be anywhere from a few dollars to $10 or so. The coinsurance is roughly a percentage of what the beneficiary pays before Medicare insurance covers costs. An example may be 20 or 25 percent. When you pay for drugs you are paying for a month supply unless stated otherwise. There is potential for out-of-pocket costs to be paid by the beneficiary if the insurance does not cover the cost, but in few cases this is rare. Additional Tips on Drug Coverage You can get help paying for Medicare drug coverage if you qualify. You may need to provide proof of documentation to show your eligibility for assistance. Such options may allow you to pay just a few dollars for medicine. You can obtain help when you are receiving medication and before your supply runs out for the month. The amount you pay for your plan varies based on drugs used, plan option, where you go to obtain prescriptions, if the drug is on the formulary approved by Medicare, and whether you qualify for assistance in paying for drug costs. You may qualify for assistance by your state if you receive Medicare Part A and/or Part B coverage. Enroll for coverage during the initial period to avoid paying penalites.

What is Medigap Insurance and Do You Need It?
 
08:59
Get Medigap Help: https://www.remedigap.com or call 888-411-1329 In this video, I'll explain how Medigap works, how you're responsible for the 20% Medicare won't cover. I'll also provide a case study on someone who needed to get Medigap - but waited too long and was unable too due to a health issue. ---- Medicare only covers 80% of your healthcare costs, leaving you with the remaining 20% coinsurance with no out of pocket maximum. The entire 20% is your responsibility and doesn’t reset at the beginning of the year. I’ll tell you how Medigap works to protect you from that 20% coinsurance so you can make informed decisions about your benefits. So, what is medigap insurance and do you need it? Whether or not you need Medigap insurance is a personal decision and definitely an important one as Medicare only covers 80% of your healthcare costs. And because Medicare doesn’t have an out of pocket limit, the remaining 20% can continue to grow leaving you financially vulnerable. And, no one wants to be in a vulnerable position - especially when it comes to your money. Most people are used to coinsurance. You probably had it at some point. But the main difference between your under age 65 health insurance and Medicare is the out of pocket limit -- which Medicare doesn’t have. Now, If we take a look at the average person visiting the doctor a Medicare Part B claim might be $100. Medicare pays 80% of that...so, $80 and you pay $20. You might be thinking, “no big deal”. A few doctor visits a year isn't going to break the bank. And that’s true for many people. But you need to take two things into consideration -- #1 You don’t know what the future holds in terms of your health. #2 Medicare doesn’t have an Out of Pocket limit. This is where Medigap insurance comes into play. Medigap is private insurance that’s meant to fill in the gaps of what Medicare doesn’t cover - such as the 20% coinsurance. And, The most popular plans F, G, and N will cover that 20% coinsurance...offering you financial protection and peace of mind. When you first enroll in Medicare, you get a one time use it or lose it opportunity and it’s called a Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This is when you can put a Medigap plan in place without answering any health questions or go through medical underwriting. So, if your Part B effective date is February 1, the Medigap Open Enrollment period allows you to buy a plan and have it begin in Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, or Jul...it’s an important 6 month window, because when it closes -- it can’t be reopened. Why is that so important? Think back to that 20% coinsurance. If you decide to not add a Medigap plan during your Medigap Open Enrollment period, then you leave yourself financially vulnerable. And, If you decide to add a Medigap plan later when something happens, it just might be too late. After 6 month window closes, you have to answer the health questions and get approved by the insurance company’s medical underwriting department. So there’s no guarantee that a policy will be yours. You’ve now put the decision making in the hands of the insurance company. So, are you still wondering what is medigap and do you need it? If so, make sure to watch this video. The good news is you don’t have to make a decision right this very second. In fact, you might want some more information or even some more guidance. So, I have more good news,you don’t have to look very far, because help is right in front of you...hello! Give me a call or send me an email if you prefer and I’ll get your questions answered and help move you through the process.

Medicare Disability   {Under Age 65}
 
09:54
Medicare Disability. Complete Medicare Resource Center here: Medicare Back Office 877-385-8083 Tell them Keith sent you! What is Medicare Disability? Medicare is a form of public healthcare cover provided for people over the age of 65 years or those below 65 years who are diagnosed with listed chronic ailments and disabilities. End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), Lou Gehrig’s disease (a form of Sclerosis or ALS), and proof of social security support for disability for a period of 24 months, are approved for disability cover. Public medical assistance follows stringent qualifying criteria offering members more affordable deductibles and full coverage for specific classes of prescription drugs. To learn about Medicare Disability and its qualifying criteria, the following provides a complete breakdown of this modern public health system. Medicare Disability Medicare Disability is a government funded healthcare plan available for select beneficiaries. If you are 65 years and older, you automatically qualify for cover. For individuals, younger than 65 years presenting with ESRD and ALS, cover is offered. Medical assistance is also available for those under 65 who have been receiving Social Security benefits for disability for at least 24 months. If you receive Social Security Disability benefits for the qualifying period, you will automatically be eligible to receive Part A and Part B of the public healthcare plan. It offers convenience, major savings and the option to visit a specific network of doctors. If you have received approval for Medicare, but not obtained these Social Security benefits, you will have to pay for the extra cover needed. Once you have been approved for Medicare, you can receive the full range of features that it provides for disabilities. This includes access to specific standards of nursing assistance, a group of doctors, listed prescription drugs, and the option to visit approved hospitals. Medicare Approval To receive the approval for the necessary public healthcare benefits, the state will automatically enrol persons over 65 years. For those who are receiving Social Security benefits for disabilities, once the 24-month period has passed, you should receive the qualifying Medicare card for public healthcare accessibility. Ensure that the Social Security department has your updated details. You should receive your card in your post as soon as the necessary criteria are met. If you do not receive your Medicare card or you have not obtained automatic cover, you must contact the relevant Social Security Department. It will help determine your approval including the extent of cover and whether you need to purchase Part A of the Medicare plan. You do not have to present with a specific disability to receive Medicare benefits. Long term care or terminal illness should receive healthcare approval. If you are struggling to receive eligibility for Medicare Disability, consult with your physician. A report concerning your diagnosis should be submitted for review. Individuals with disabilities who continue to work can obtain benefits for a set trial period and provided their gross earning do not exceed a specific limit. The benefits are provided so long individuals are disabled during their working trial and are noted “cured” or recover from their disabilities. Learning of the Medicare qualifying criteria and potential restrictions can help you rely on government funded healthcare plans.

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 and you 2018 introduces simple assessment of current healthcare packages and comparison tools to help you make the most out of your coverage. Ensure the information you receive to make a health insurance decision is personalized. This includes eligibility for new Medicare subscribers and investing in the right amount of cover. Things you will find in Medicare and You 2018 Medicare has introduced a new card system released between April 2018 and 2019 to heighten security by removing social security numbers. The initiative makes it easier to use your medical cover while protecting personal information. The 2 major plans for Medicare cover include: Option 1 – Standard Medicare and Option 2 - Medicare Advantage (Part C) The original Medicare or Part A and B provides hospital cover and general medical insurance. You are eligible to add prescription coverage for essential medicines (Part D) or Medigap protection assisting with cash payments. Medicare Advantage will incorporate plans A, B, and D and entails coverage such as HMOs or PPOs. You automatically receive the benefits provided in Part A (hospital cover), Part B (medical insurance), and Part D (protection for prescription drugs). The Part D program will include most types of prescriptions, but additional insurance may be sought, by joining an independent Part D plan. Choice of Medical Coverage Standard/Basic Medicare: Part A and B cover will not provide set funds for out of pocket expenses annually. To ensure you are protected, supplemental insurance must be purchased. The Medicare cover delivers hospital insurance. This involves clinical stay and supplies, and doctor consultations in stipulated medical settings. Part A and Part B provide detailed coverage. To avoid the expense of out of pocket costs, supplement the Original Medicare by purchasing additional cover. A Medigap policy is the best choice. This policy will not cover prescription drugs. You will have to purchase additional prescription drug cover under Part D, to receive adequate insurance for prescribed medication. Only Medicare approved doctors can be sought under the Medicare Original Plan. Medicare Advantage: All covered recipients receive an annual limit on cash expenditure. Out of pocket expenses are limited, but once this limit is reached, the services covered in your policy are free of charge. It covers the Parts A, B and D and all services offered through an Original Medicare Plan. Advantage will include dental, auditory and vision cover. This program eliminates the need for a Medigap plan. The Advantage policy is considered more economical if you require supplementary insurance. Most of these plans will provide coverage for prescription pills. When selecting hospital care and doctors, ensure they are Medicare approved. Learn of coverage outside of your network to see practitioners and clinics of your choosing. Medicare Cover The Medicare insurance plans are only available for U.S. citizens. To determine the type of plan you need and the quality of cover provided, speak to a Medicare representative. Remain aware of important enrolment dates. Changes to a Medical insurance and prescription plan can be made from the 15 October to December 7. Your new policy will take effect from January 2018.

Dishonestly called 'Medicare for All,' the Democratic proposal would establish a government-run, single-payer health care system that eliminates all private and employer-based health care plans and would cost an astonishing $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years. As a candidate, I promised that we would protect coverage for patients with pre-existing conditions and create new health care insurance options that would lower premiums. I have kept that promise, and we are now seeing health insurance premiums coming down." Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Why Can't America Have a Grown-Up Healthcare Conversation?

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.

Want more information about your Medicare plan options? Get my 8 Part Video Mini-Course so you can choose the most suitable plan. Get Instant access: http://free-mini-course.com A Medicare Private Fee-for Service plan (PFFS) is a Medicare Advantage Plan. As with any Medicare Advantage Plan, when you join a Medicare Private Fee-for-Service plan you are subject to the enrollment periods, must have Medicare Parts A and B, live in the plans service area and not have end-stage renal disease. Plans may or may not include Part D coverage and will often include ancillary benefits like dental and vision. Unlike a Medicare HMO or Medicare PPO, you are not required to use a provider network when you are enrolled in a Medicare Private Fee-for-Service plan. You can choose any provider that will accept the plan's terms and conditions. But this freedom to choose any provider comes with a cost. Providers can choose to accept Medicare PFFS plans on a visit-by-visit basis. You may not be able to keep the same provider throughout the year. You need to be aware of this when deciding whether or not you will enroll in a Medicare Private Fee-for-Service plan.

AETNA - Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans
 
08:11
Medicare solutions focused on keeping seniors healthy and independent. The greatest asset for Baby Boomers to enjoy the golden years of retirement is their health. With many plans on the market, increasing costs and unanswered questions as to how the health care reform will impact Medicare, now more than ever, seniors are focused on making the right choice during Medicare’s open enrollment. In this episode of Baby Boomers in America, Kristi Matus, executive vice president and head of Aetna Government Services, discusses Medicare – the misconceptions, the difference between Parts A, B, C and D, and some programs available to those with chronic health conditions. “Aetna is focused on helping people live healthier, more productive lives and we have built our programs and continually improve them with that in mind,” states Matus. “We have many options to meet individual needs and each person should take in mind their current health and lifestyle when determining what coverage he or she should select.” Aetna is one of the nation's leading diversified health care benefits companies, serving approximately 36.7 million people with information and resources to help them make better informed decisions about their health care. “What makes Aetna unique is simple – we care about the people who are enrolled in our programs,” confirms Matus. “We care about their health, we care about their quality of life. They are not just policyholders to us.”

Medicare Cost Plan - Medicare Cost Plan Review
 
15:02
What are medicare cost plans – What is a Medicare cost plan? 1-800-566-1002 http://www.RetireSharp.com . What are the best types of Medicare cost plans for retirement and learn how you can avoid the most common mistakes that individuals have made when looking to purchase a Medicare cost plan. How To Choose Medicare Supplement Plan and Medicare cost plan? When it comes to buying a Medicare cost plan, many agents and Medicare recipients view the Medicare Supplement Plan F as the "Cadillac of Medicare Supplement plans." Now before we examine the Medicare Supplement let's make sure that you understand some basic information about the insurance product. Medicare, a government run health program helps provide health insurance coverage for people 65 and older as well as some who are under 65 and disabled. Medicare by itself does not provide adequate health insurance coverage, there are many gaps in coverage where a recipient would be responsible for payment. A Medicare cost plan is a health insurance plan that helps fill in the gaps where Medicare doesn't cover, which is why it is also called Medigap Insurance. The three biggest factors to look at are their financial situation, health history, and their personal opinions on health care.'' Financial Situation: We first make sure our client is able to afford a Medicare Supplement. Plan F costs usually start at $95 and goes up from there for a standard Plan F. The monthly premium for a Supplement Plans will vary by the area you live in, the insurance company you select, your age, whether or not you smoke, and sometimes by underwriting guidelines. You must also plan on choosing a Medicare Prescription Drug plan (avg. cost around $40-70/month and continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium). The cost of the plan will go up over time. If you are able to afford a Supplement plan you should buy one now, preferably when you first are eligible for Medicare and you no longer have any other creditable health coverage. When you are first eligible for a Medicare S you are not required to go through underwriting, the cost is lower, and your acceptance is guaranteed. The longer you wait the more you risk the chance of not being able to afford a plan or qualify for one. Although higher in price than a Medicare Advantage plan, the health insurance coverage provided by the Medicare Supplement is superior if you get Medicare Supplement Plan F. Your Personal Choice: Again a Medicare Supplement comes out on top when you look at your freedom to choose. Is it important to you to have the ability to go to any hospital or doctor you want for any procedure, or would it be acceptable to you to pay significantly less on your health care and have a large network to choose your hospital and doctor from?" A Medicare cost plan, for the most part, gives you the freedom to use any hospital or doctor you wish which is attractive to many recipients. Most Medicare Advantage plans require you to receive services from an in-network provider and may require a referral from your Primary Care Physician before you may see an in-network specialist. A Medicare Supplement is the "Cadillac" of Medicare health plans because of its outstanding health coverage (bases on Medicare Supplement Plan F ), predictable costs, and the freedom to choose almost any doctor, specialist, and hospital that you need or want.

Is Medicaid Coverage Better or Worse than Private Insurance?
 
07:51
It’s clearly, provably better for patients to have Medicaid coverage than to be uninsured, despite what critics of the program claim. Recently, bills in the Senate and the House of Representatives have sought to greatly reduce Medicaid funding and coverage, partially justified by these claims. But is having Medicaid, as those critics also say, much worse than having private insurance? This episode was adapted from a column Aaron and Austin Frakt wrote for the Upshot. Links to further reading and sources can be found there: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/03/upshot/medicaid-worsens-your-health-thats-a-classic-misinterpretation-of-research.html Aaron has a book coming out November 7.
