Visit: http://medicare-mini-course.com In this video I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Part D before you enroll. There have been significant changes to the Part D program since its inception in 2006. Visit http://affordablemedicareplan.com and get access to hundreds of articles on Medicare Part D, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement insurance. There have been changes to enrollment periods, how premiums are calculated as well as adjustments to the Standard Benefit Model. Some things haven't changed such as who is eligible to join and how plans work. Here are 5 things you should know about the Medicare Part D program and Part D plans in particular. One. You need to know what Part D is and how it works. So what is Medicare Part D? Part D is optional prescription drug coverage for Medicare beneficiaries who are enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B. Although Part D is optional, you should enroll when you first become eligible or potentially be subject to the Part D penalty which will have an impact on what you pay for as long as you are enrolled in a plan. Part D is offered by private insurance companies and is not part of original Medicare. Plans are offered by service area and you must live in a service area to be eligible for a plan. You can get Part D in one of two ways; you can enroll in a stand-alone plan (PDP) or you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan that includes drug coverage. Plans are effective for one calendar year. Two. Understanding the terminology of Part D is important. Medicare Part D Premiums -- Premiums are paid monthly and have ranged in the low to mid $30 range for the past few years. Part D Deductible -- The deductible is the amount you may be required to pay prior to your plan paying a share of prescription drugs. Part D copayment / Coinsurance -- This is the amount you pay at the pharmacy. Drugs are place in tiers and normally a plan has four or five tiers. Initial Coverage Limit -- This amount is set annually by Medicare and will be the same for all plans. It is the amount both you and your plan will pay prior to you reaching the Part D coverage gap. Medicare Part D Donut Hole -- This is the coverage gap that you may enter if you exceed the initial coverage limit. Part D Catastrophic Coverage -- This phase is reached after you have spent a fixed amount in the Donut Hole, currently $4750. During this phase you will pay very small copayments or coinsurance amounts for your drugs. Third. You should understand the Medicare Part D enrollment periods. There are 3 types of Part D enrollment periods. When you first become eligible you have a seven month window to submit an application. If starts three months before the month you turn 65 or if you will receive Part D due to a disability it will start 3 months prior to your 25th month of disability. The Part D Annual Election Period is the time to compare Part D Plans because you are able to switch, drop or enroll in a plan. Part D Special Enrollment Periods are time that you can enroll in a plan, normally due to a change in your individual circumstances. Such as, moving from a plan's service area or losing other creditable drug coverage like from an employer or union (including (COBRA). If you live in a nursing home you also are entitled to a Special Enrollment Period. The 5 Star Special Enrollment Period allows you the opportunity to switch into or enroll in a 5 Star-rated plan once per year. Plans are rated from one to five stars by Medicare and are a reflection of the experience people who have been in enrolled in the plan have had. You are allowed to enroll between December 30th and November 8th. If you qualify for Medicare extra help you can change plans anytime. Fourth. You must know how to conduct a thorough comparison of Medicare Part D plans. You can see all available plans for your service area at the Medicare Plan Finder at medicare.gov. But don't choose a plan based on premium alone. There's a lot more to plan cost than the monthly premium. Start your search for the best plan by exploring the Medicare Part D formulary for each plan. The formulary is the list of drugs which are covered by a plan. There is no universal Part D formulary, each plan will be unique. Formularies are either Basic or Enhanced. Making sure all your drugs are covered is your number one goal. Also compare: Plan Deductibles Copayments and Coinsurance amounts Pharmacy Networks Part D Mail Order benefits Fifth. You should be aware that your Part D premium may not be what is published at medicare.gov. Premiums are now tied to your annual income. If you qualify for Medicare extra help, you may pay $0 premiums, but if you earn over $85,000 as an individual or over $170,000 filing jointly, you are going to pay more.

Medicare Open Enrollment 2018 - What to do... What not to do...
 
14:53
Medicare Open Enrollment 2018. Complete Medicare Resource Center here: http://www.MedicareonVideo.com 1-877-88KEITH (53484) Medicare Open Enrollment 2018 starts from October 15th to December 7t h. During this time, all Medicare members can update or alter their medical protection schemes. This includes changes to current Medicare healthcare plans that will come into effect in 2018. Learning of the purpose for enrollment and the options available, can help you best prepare for updated medical and prescription coverage. Your Options for Medicare Enrollment 2018 During the Open Enrollment period for Medicare, all registered members are provided the chance to change their healthcare plan. If you wish to upgrade your prescription cover or completely change your general healthcare program, the Medicare Open Election period 2018 allows you to do so easily and conveniently. You can upgrade your Medicare Advantage Plan or your Medicare Part D plan or prescription benefits. Qualifying seniors over the age of 65 years who qualify for Medicare plans may find their cover insufficient for their specific wellness, clinical and chronic care needs. Unfortuantely, you cannot alter your coverage halfway through the year if you find it does not provide what you are looking for. The enrollment period between October and early December offers the chance to make these amendments that become active in January 2018. For Medicare Advantage or prescription cover, members can complete their updates during the stipulated enrollment period with ease. There is no need to register membership for the change in protection or fill out lengthy and complex forms. For those who reside in a chronic care facility or have received a diagnosis of End Stage Renal Disease, you will not be eligible to enroll for the Medicare Advantage Plan at this time. Notice of Change You may receive an Annual Notice of Change or ANOC for the enrolment period, but documents received through the course of the year concerning your healthcare plan should be reviewed. If you wish to alter the policy, you must learn which options or modifications to plans, can better meet personal health needs. Remaining aware of policy features including the extent of cover, benefits and costs can help you determine whether your current medical care plan is sufficient for the new year. If you are satisfied with your protection, simply leave the cover unchanged and it will continue into the new year. Where dissatisfaction with a policy is apparent, be sure to amend your cover during the 2018 Medicare Enrollment period. Enrollment Restrictions You cannot register for a Part B Medicare plan if you are applying for cover for the first time during enrollment. If you are interested in changing your coverage from a Medicare Advantage to a Medigap plan, it cannot be initiated without completing a medical questionnaire. Important Medicare 2018 Enrollment Considerations Learn whether your current prescriptions will continue to be covered in the new year. Part D Medicare patients may be protected for specific prescriptions in 2018 only to have to pay a deductible or co-payment for a certain category of medication owing to changes in suppliers. Your Open Enrollment allows you to update your prescription policy ensuring your medication is comprehensively covered in 2018. During an Open Enrollment, carefully assess your plans to prevent excessive costs for your healthcare in the new term.

Part D Options When You Don't Take Prescription Drugs
 
09:33
Call us at 888-411-1329 https://www.remedigap.com/ecourse https://www.remedigap.com/medicare-supplement-videos/ https://www.facebook.com/Remedigap/ Medicare: 1-800-633-4227 https://www.medicare.gov/ I often get calls from beneficiaries wondering if they have to buy a Part D (drug) plan...especially, if they don’t take any medications. While it’s not required by Medicare, there can be consequences for not buying a Part D drug plan when you’re first eligible for Medicare. Join me in this video to see what options are available if you don’t need (or want) a Medicare drug plan. Option # -- if you don’t take any prescription drugs is to not buy a Part D plan right now, but wait until you actually need one. Now, that seems like a common sense approach..and perfectly logical, however, there are some things to keep in mind if you choose this option. At some point, you will probably need a part d plan, and when this happens,you can’t just buy it and have it start right away. Because, Once you’re out of your enrollment period, you have to wait until the Annual Election Period (10/15-12/7) to enroll and then wait until January 1 for the plan to start. You may also be hit with a Medicare Part d late enrollment penalty. Now, this isn’t a one time fee. It’s a monthly add on penalty...so, just like it sounds, it’s added to your Part D premium every month for as long as you have a Part D plan. Now, there are some individuals that are not subject to the late enrollment penalty. And, that includes anyone who is eligible for Extra Help also know as Low-Income Subsidy and anyone who had “creditable coverage”. This is drug coverage through your job, spouse’s job, retiree coverage or VA...and, what’s important is that your current coverage is as good or better than Medicare’s...this is the only way it’s considered Creditable Coverage. Now, keep in mind that you can’t just tell Medicare you had creditable coverage….you actually have to have proof...and it must be submitted to the Part D company within 30 days of their request. Let's say you don’t fall into these two categories and you decided not to get a Part D plan when you were first eligible, so you know a penalty is coming your way. And for example sake, Let’s also say that you went 40 months without coverage and now you’re signing up for a Part D plan. Your penalty is calculated by multiplying 1% of the “national base beneficiary premium” which just means it takes all the Part D premiums and comes up with the average...(so, in 2017 the average Part D premium is $35.63). So, 1% of 35.63 is .36 multiplied by the 40 months you went without coverage. Your Part D penalty is $14.40. Remember, this is a monthly add on penalty to your Part D premium and it will stay with you for as long as you have a Part D plan. And, it’s important to note that Medicare recalculates this penalty every year with the new base beneficiary premium. And as it increases, so will your Part D penalty. The second option is to buy a Part D plan when you're first eligible. Since you don't take any medications, it’s not necessary to pay a high premium for a plan. The point is just to have a plan in place to avoid a penalty when you do decide to buy a plan. Now, with that said, Part D plans are not a one size fits all. Some Part D plans cover certain drugs better than others. So, if your doctor has mentioned the possibility of you taking a particular medication in the near future, you might want to take that into consideration when choosing a plan. But, for most people a low premium plan is the best option. And, in this video I'll provide the steps you need to find the lowest monthly premium Medicare Part D plan.

Medicare Part D Without A Premium - Can You Really Get Free Part D?
 
03:29
Did you know that you may be able to get Medicare Part D without paying a monthly premium? This video will address that and explain why putting too much emphasis on the Part D Premium may not be your best move. Visit the Medicare Plan Review website and get information on Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D and Medicare supplements. http://affordablemedicareplan.com There are two ways to get Medicare part D without a premium. The first is income based. If you are dual-eligible or qualify for extra help, you may not pay a premium. The second way is to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan without a premium that includes Part D coverage. You may or may not have a $0 premium Medicare Advantage Plan available in your service area. If you get your medical coverage through original Medicare, with or without a Medicare supplement, you will need to enroll in a stand-alone Part D plan. Plans average just above $30 per month. Don't put too much emphasis on the Medicare Part D premium... it's not the most important factor to consider when you are comparing Part D plans. Review the Medicare Part D formulary to make sure all your prescriptions are covered... that should be your number one concern. Beyond that, also consider: Your medication's tier placement The deductible amount What you'll pay to get your prescriptions Whether there is coverage in the Medicare Part D donut hole Learn more about Medicare Part D -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKro0RdqHSU Watch: Medicare Part D -- 5 Things to Know Before You Enroll

Medicare offers prescription drug coverage to everyone with Medicare. If you decide not to get Medicare drug coverage when you're first eligible, you'll likely pay a late enrollment penalty unless one of these applies: 1. You have other creditable prescription drug coverage 2. You get Extra Help To get Medicare drug coverage, you must join a plan run by an insurance company or other private company approved by Medicare. Each plan can vary in cost and drugs covered. Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) adds prescription drug coverage to Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private-Fee-for-Service Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. These plans are offered by insurance companies and other private companies approved by Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans may also offer prescription drug coverage that follows the same rules as Medicare Prescription Drug Plans.

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 !

Part D Drug Plan -  How Formularies & Tiers Can Cost You!!
 
06:18
http://www.FirstMedicareAdvisors.com - - Recorded Hotline: 1-800-958-8171 - Office: 1-800-825-2919. - - Email: info@firstmedicareadvisors.com - - PS: No Sales Pitches Ever! We hate'em as much as you do! The Medicare Part D is your drug coverage. Here is a key point: The Part D drug plan is completely different than the drug plan you may have had as an individual or at your workplace. They are not the same types of benefit. Part D Plans are required to cover certain types of drugs, but they may choose which drugs it covers. Your drug plans are offered by private insurance companies. Before we talk about drug tiers, let’s talk about how the companies offer their benefits: All prescription drug plans have a formulary that lists the drugs covered. By law, both brand name and generic drugs must be included in the formulary. They also must have a variety of those categories. Each plan’s formulary can be different from other company benefits. And formularies can change from one year to the next. Well, how does the drug plan create its formulary? The purpose of the formulary is to identify drugs that work for you. But - also price-effective for the company. The effort to control costs is why they use of drug tiers The companies divide the drugs they provide into “tiers.” The level each drug goes into is based on what price the plan pays to the pharmaceutical manufacturer. If a drug program receives a lower price on a drug, then it can place it in a lower tier and pass the savings onto you. Each plan has a different copay, coinsurance, and deductible. Therefore, you pay more for a drug on one plan’s formulary over another plan. Each insurance company decides its own tier formula. They may offer you a formulary with several different levels. The lower level drugs have the lower cost. The price increases based on the higher tier. If you have a question or need help with your different parts of Medicare give us a call at either our Recorded Hotline at 1-800-958-8171 and record your question or request. The second and quickest way is to call my office direct at 1-800-825-2919. You’ll get an answer to point you in the right direction. Here’s how drug tiers typically work: Tier 1 is usually generic drugs with lower costs. Tier 2 is usually “a preferred” brand name medication. These are drugs that the insurance company has negotiated to get lower prices. Tier 3 is called the “non-preferred” drug brands that are the same as the tier 2 brand names. But the plan must charge the drug company price. Tier 4 is usually the specialty drugs. You will often be required to pay a coinsurance and copay on these drugs. Tier 5 is usually the experimental drugs and cost the most. Most likely your formulary is going to change. Why? Because tiers will be changing for different drugs? For example, a few years back I was taking a drug called Lipitor. Man, was it pricey! But eventually, a generic called Atorvastatin came on the market. Fortunately - the price dropped dramatically. Regularly generic versions of drugs come into the market. The pricing for drugs may be renegotiated during the year. Both these scenarios can cause your plan to add or remove your drug from your formulary. The plan may move it to another tier. To save money you want to know and understand your plan’s drug tiers. When you enroll in a Part D plan check the tiers for the drugs, you currently take. Then you can calculate your copay or coinsurance. If you’re prescribed a new drug by your doctor, find it in your formulary and see which tier it is in. What happens if your doctor prescribes a drug that costs more because of a higher tier in your formulary? If that happens, ask your doctor to prescribe a drug that costs less on a lower tier. Generally, generics are a good place to look for prescription savings. Talk to your doctor about what lower-priced drugs may work for you. If you can’t find a good similar drug file a request and ask your plan to allow you to pay a lower price for a higher-level tier drug. If you need additional information about your prescription drug resources, give our office a call on our Recorded Hotline. That number is 1-800-958-8171 and then record your question or request. However, the best way is to call my office direct at 1-800-825-2919. You’ll get an answer to point you in the right direction.

Pointers apply to enrolling in a stand-alone Part D plan or a 2016 Medicare Advantage plan which includes Medicare drug coverage (MAPD). Confused about your Medicare options? Get my Free 8 Part Video Mini-Course. Get Instant Access: http://free-mini-course.com When considering a 2016 Medicare Part D plan, keep in mind that the drug formulary is the key to finding the best Part D plan for your circumstances. The formulary is the list of a plan's covered drugs and which tiers they are placed in. A universal Medicare Part D formulary does not exist. All plans have their own formulary. Your goal when comparing plans is to find plans that include all your prescription drugs. Keep in mind that there are drugs that are not included in any plan formulary. If you have drugs that are not included, you will need to pay out-of-pocket or find manufacture's or community assistance programs to help cover the costs. Using a look-up tool, either at medicare.gov or a plan's website will help narrow your list of plans to consider and also give you an idea of annual costs. Because there are many factors that contribute to a Part D plan's annual costs, it's a good idea not to compare plans based on monthly Part D premiums alone. Costs are determined by; which drugs you are prescribed, Part D deductible, coinsurance and copayment amounts, Part D premium, whether there is extra gap coverage and if you reach the Part D donut hole. WATCH: Medicare Coverage Gap -- Tips to Avoid the Medicare Part D Donut Hole - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q83pNdCqTj8 Your goal is to find a 2016 Medicare Part D plan that includes all your medications and has the lowest cost. Once you have found suitable plans you can research the pharmacy networks and Part D mail order options. Part D plans are rated at medicare.gov with one to five stars. This Medicare star rating is based on other people's past experience with a plan and ratings may not have a bearing on which plan is best for you. The best Medicare Part D plan for 2016 is the one that includes all your drugs and has the lowest overall annual cost.

Medicare Part B and D Late Enrollment Penalty
 
05:14
My Website: http://www.medicarescreenshare.com Contact Me: MedicareScreenShare@gmail.com Medicare Update: Medicare Part B and D Penalties Lets look at how much you will have to pay on top of your monthly premiums if you delay enrolling into Medicare Part B hospital insurance and Medicare Part D drug coverage. Stay Tuned. Intro: Hello again friend and welcome to another medicare update. Now are you thinking about not signing up for either Part B or Part D of medicare later than your initial enrollment period when you turn 65? Well there are some penalties to consider and also some exceptions to the rules that you should know. Medicare Part B Penalty: If you sign up late for Medicare Part B, you will have to pay a late penalty premium every month for the rest of your life, along with your Part B premium. Your monthly Part B premium will go up 10% for each full 12-month period that you could have had Medicare Part B but did not take it. You will continue to pay this higher premium as long as you have Medicare Part B. Example: So if you delayed one year and then you would have to pay an additional 10% of the current medicare part B premium. Because the premium is $134 in 2017 you would expect to pay an addition $13.40 if you decide to enroll 1 year past your initial enrollment period. And when your Part B premium increases in the future, which it will, you would need to pay 10% of the new premium as long as you have medicare Part B. Exceptions: You may not have to pay the penalty if you qualify for a SEP or Special Enrollment Period. You might qualify for an SEP if you had health insurance through your job or your spouse’s job when you were first sign up for Medicare Part B. Medicare Part D Penalty: There is a late penalty premium for not joining a Medicare Part D drug plan when you first become eligible for Medicare. The penalties usually begin 3 months after your Part A and Part B eligibility dates. The penalty premium is added onto the regular premium that you pay to your Medicare drug plan. The fee is calculated by taking 1% of the average monthly prescription drug premium. This average month prescription drug premium is $35.65 in 2017. This penalty is rounded to the nearest 10 cents, and much like the Part B premium this penalty is permanent. So you would have to pay it for as long as you have Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage. Example: So if you delay one year then you would have to pay an additional 1% of $35.65 and have to multiply that same 1% of $35.65 by 12 months. This means you would pay an additional $4.30 on top of you Part D premium. This penalty much like the Part B penalty will also increase. But instead of increasing with the Part B premium it will increase with the average monthly prescription drug premium. Exceptions: You do not have to pay the penalty if you are eligible for the Extra Help with costs, if you have coverage through your or your spouse’s job, if you have retiree coverage, or if you have coverage through the Veterans Administration. Thanks for taking the time to watch this quick video and I hope you found the information useful, and make sure to check out another one of my videos I made about why enrolling sooner for you medicare supplement can be beneficial to you as soon as this video ends.

This is especially true in states that have specific laws reducing the value of Plan G. In addition, some insurance companies are preparing for Medicare Supplement Plan D to be one of the top selling plans in Medicare. To be clear, I am referring to the Medicare Supplement Plan D and NOT Medicare Part D prescription drugs. Medicare supplement Plan D is a direct competitor to Medicare supplement Plan N. Is Medicare Supplement Plan N the right plan for you? Let’s take a look. When comparing Medigap Plan N vs. Plan G, people that prefer the Plan G to the Plan N tend to be people who would rather pay a little extra each month and avoid having to do the extra work to avoid excess charges. The plans are identified by letter across the top row. The category of Medicare services are in the left hand column. In the column below the Plan letter you can see the percentage of insurance coverage offered by that plan. You can find this table on our website and in various Medicare publications. With Medigap Plan N we see that it covers 100% “Medicare Part A coinsurance and hospital costs (up to an additional 365 days after Medicare benefits are used up.). Notice that all the supplements have this coverage. Also, notice down here that Medicare Supplement Plan N pays the Medicare Part A deductible. In 2017 that deductible is $1,380 per event. It will change every year, but with a Medigap Plan N that doesn’t matter. Your supplement will pay it. Without a supplement you pay the deductible up front, then have 60-days of hospital coverage before you start paying a copay. With Medicare supplement Plan N you can be an inpatient in the hospital for more than 365 days with 100% coverage. You will have no out of pocket costs for Part A. The asterisks indicate that you have the Medicare supplement Plan N copay. You will be required to pay up to a $20 co-pay for every doctor visit and a $50 copay for every emergency room visit unless you end up an inpatient in the hospital. Then the $50 copay is waived. The important qualifying words here are “up to”…$20. Here is what you can expect. So notice that with Medicare supplement Plan N you have 100% coverage until you get down to this line item referring to the Medicare Part B deductible and Medicare Part B excess charges. Here Medigap Plan N has no coverage at all. You are expected to pay those fees out of pocket. That’s important. Later in this video I am going to go over a real life example using a common joint replacement that will clear up some of the most common questions and misunderstandings about Medigap Plan N. In order to evaluate if Medicare supplement Plan N is right for you, you need to know what the Medicare Part B deductible is and what it is expected to be in the future. It’s also critical that you understand Medicare Part B excess charges. So let’s focus on these and then go over a real life example to show you how Medicare supplement Plan N works with office visits, hospital stays and physical therapy. If a doctor or hospital does not accept Medicare assigned rates, they are paid 5% less from Medicare, but allowed to charge you 15% more. The amount the doctor or hospital charges you that is more than what Medicare pays the doctor for that service is called an excess charge. Excess charges are only allowed on Medicare Part B services. Those are outpatient and physician services. There are also some states that either forbid or severely restrict Medicare Part B excess charges. These state laws are called Medicare Override Measure or MOM laws. If you live in either Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Rhode Island or Vermont your state either forbids or limits Medicare Part B excess charges. for Part D drug plan info visit: http://www.medicare.gov Also visit : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medigap Get your Medicare Guide to supplements here: https://www.medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/02110-Medicare-Medigap.guide.pdf And your Medicare & You Guide here: https://www.medicare.gov/pubs/pdf/10050-Medicare-and-You.pdf

Quick Tip: Medicare Part D – Creditable Coverage Disclosure Notice
 
00:42
Rebecca Scandaliato, Vice President of Employee Benefits, addresses the significance of the Medicare Part D Disclosure Notice. The Medicare Part D Creditable or Non-Creditable Coverage Disclosure Notice needs to be sent out by Employers who sponsor group health plans that offer prescription drug coverage to Medicare-eligible individuals prior to the annual open enrollment period for Medicare Part D that begins on October 15th. This letter notifies Medicare-eligible individuals whether the plan’s prescription drug coverage is creditable coverage, meaning the coverage is expected to pay, on average, as much as the standard Medicare prescription drug coverage. Individuals who do not maintain creditable coverage for 63 days or longer following their initial enrollment period for Medicare Part D may be required to pay a late enrollment penalty. Accordingly, this information is essential to the decision to enroll in a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. For more information contact us at http://www.mackoul.com.

Medicare Part D - the Prescription Drug Plan - is Working for Seniors
 
01:09
Washington got it right. Medicare Part D - Prescription Drug Plan - is working for seniors! Part D provides patients access to medicines at affordable prices. Better yet, patients' monthly premiums will average $30 in 2012...that's a 44% decrease from original projections (HHS). And Part D is saving money on other healthcare services! Part D saves Medicare about $1,200 / year in hospital, nursing home and other costs for each senior who previously lacked comprehensive prescription drug coverage (Harvard Researchers). But that's not all. Part D is already costing 41% less than initially projected (CBO). And patients like it. 84% of seniors enrolled in Part D are satisfied with the program (Medicare Today). Let's keep a good thing going! Medicare Part D keeps costs low and delivers high-quality, comprehensive coverage to seniors. Let's preserve it and the 4 million American jobs that the biopharmaceutical industry supports.

Medicare basics: Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D explained
 
08:26
For med supp quotes, call us at 1-888-832-3132 or click here: http://saferetirements.com/medsuppquote. Please like this video and subscribe to our channel! This video will cover the basics of Medicare: Part A and Part B (called Original Medicare, and Part C and Part D. Medicare Part A is Hospitalization. Think of the "A" as "admission" to a hospital. It has a $1,288 deductible per 60-day benefit period, so for the first 60 days, this will be your only cost. If you have a long hospital stay over 60 days, you will incur a co-pay of over $300 per day, and after 90 days, even more. It's important to note that if you go are admitted then released, and more than 60 days go by, and you are admitted again within the same calendar year, you will incur this $1,288 deductible again. This is one reason why some people buy a Medicare supplement: it will pay this deductible and these co-pays for an additional 365 days. Part A also covers hospice, skilled nursing (up to 20 days in full but a supplement covers up to 100), and home health care. Medicare Part B is Medical coverage. This covers 80% of Medicare-approved charges for doctor visits, lab tests, bloodwork, x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, PET scans, outpatient procedures, chemotherapy, dialysis, etc., after an annual $166 deductible. If you are working when you turn 65, you may be able to delay your Part B enrollment. You should check with your company's benefits administrator to make sure you have creditable coverage. For most employer groups with 20 or more employees, Medicare coverage is secondary. Part B has a cost, part A does not, but there are exceptions to both. If you or your spouse have paid into the Medicare system as an employee, then Part A is $0, Part B is $121.80/mo. Part B costs more for high income earners, and less for those who qualify for assistance from their state. If you are already drawing Social Security, you will be automatically enrolled into Medicare Part A and B, and they will draw the Part B premium out of your Social Security deposit each month. If not, you will have to enroll in it either online or in person at a local Social Security office, and they will invoice you for it every quarter. You can also set up a monthly bank draft. If you do not have creditable group coverage and don't enroll into Part B within 3 months after your birth month, you will incur a permanent late enrollment penalty later, and have no medical benefits now. We will show you how to enroll in another video. Medicare Part C is Medicare Advantage, and is only available through an insurance company's Medicare approved plan. When you enroll into Medicare Advantage, you are now electing to receive your Medicare benefits through an insurance company. This means you will now be in either an HMO or PPO provider network. Many HMO plans require referrals to see a specialist. You will have co-pays and cost sharing for most services. Generally, these plans have lower premiums than Medicare Supplements, and some have $0 premium. Medicare reimburses these plans directly a set amount each month for each member enrolled, which is why they can be offered to you at a low cost, but you need to really understand what you are getting. Doctors can come and go from the networks, and these plans can change annually. Most PPO plans have a higher cost to you if you go out of network for services. You must have both Part A and Part B to enroll into any Part C plan. The enrollment period for Part C generally coincides with your initial enrollment window into Medicare (7 months, starting three months prior to your 65th birthday month). You can also change plans annually during the Annual Election Period (AEP), from October 15th to December 7th each year. Part D is a stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan, or PDP. These are also offered and administered by insurance companies. There is a monthly premium which varies from plan to plan. Also, the co-pays can vary, and the list of covered drugs, the formulary, isn't the same across all plans. The PDP that you choose should be based on what medicines you are taking, and in another video we will show you how to choose the right plan. Those who have a Part D plan are considered to be on Original Medicare, and many will also buy a Medicare Supplement. You cannot have a Part D and a Part C together. They are mutually exclusive. But, many Part C plans include prescription coverage, and these are called MAPD plans. If you do not have creditable drug coverage, you will need to choose a Part D plan when you first go onto Medicare, or face a penalty later when you enroll. We will cover this in another video.

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.
