Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans In Ohio To Consider
Currently, there are ten modernized plans – A through N. Plan A covers only basic benefits while Plan F offers the most comprehensive coverage.
Plans B through M offer varying benefit amounts to the insured. Plan premiums increase as you move from A to F. (View Benefit Chart)
In Ohio, Plans F , G and N are three of the most popular supplemental plans. Plan F is the most comprehensive policy available and covers all of the gaps left by Medicare Parts A & B. Plans G and N cost less and both have very small coverage gaps. Our clients ask about these three plans the most.
Plans C, D & M are also good choices depending on the benefits that are most important to you – and also depending on your monthly insurance budget. We can help you better understand the nuances that make each plan a little unique.
Additionally, some insurance providers offer a High Deductible Plan F Medicare supplement. High Deductible Plan F only provides coverage once the annual deductible has been met, but the premiums are usually very affordable. In 2015, you will need to reach a $2,180 deductible first before any gap coverage would begin. Medicare Parts A and B will always pay its share first however.
Medicare Insurance For Those Under Age 65 in Ohio
If you are under age 65 and eligible for Medicare due to disability, we are only aware of one company offering one Medicare supplement policy. It’s Plan A and it costs approximately $425 a month.
In most cases, our clients under age 65 look to and benefit from Medicare Advantage plans. We can help you compare the benefits and rates with these plans. They do work differently than Original Medicare, but here in Ohio, they can be one of your only (and best) options when you are under age 65 and Medicare eligible.
Calculating Medicare Supplement Rates & Financial Assistance
Many consumers purchase Medigap plans to provide themselves with more health care coverage and less out of pocket expenses to health care facilities. Some of the factors that will determine the cost of your plan include: age, gender, location, the chosen insurance company, marital status, and the plan selected.
It is important to find out if you are a “Qualified Medicare Beneficiary.” If your income is at or below 100% of the federal poverty level, your insurance plans may be subsidized by the government. You may also be eligible for Medicaid assistance as well.
Our clients usually choose a plan based on the amount of annual out-of-pocket and monthly premiums they are most comfortable with. There is a modernized chart that can be viewed by clicking on the Ohio Department of Insurance “consumer publications” link for Medigap policies.
The chart has a detailed explanation of the different plans and what they cover. We can also outline the cost and benefit description of each plan with several insurance carriers.
All supplemental policies are “guaranteed renewable,” which means as long as you pay your premiums each year, the insurance company cannot cancel your coverage for any reason. Insurance companies can raise your rates each year, which is why consumers shop online with us for better rates. It’s important to note that you cannot be singled out for rate increase however.
Part D Prescription Drug Coverage Plans In Ohio
We offer Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage direct from AARP United Healthcare, Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Coventry First Health, Silver Scripts and Humana (to name a few). All companies offer varying levels of prescription drug coverage and we will work to find the plan most suitable for your rx needs.
The most inexpensive Part D plan in Ohio for 2015 is the Humana Walmart policy. It costs $15.60 per month and can be a very good option for those on a few generics or no rx’s at all. In other words, it’s a good option if you are worried about the late enrollment penalty.
All Part D plans offer competitive premiums and copay options while covering almost all of the most common medications. All plans offer a nationwide pharmacy network and a mail order option for quick and reliable access to prescription Part D approved drugs.
We will be happy to help you find an rx plan tailored to cover your prescription needs whether through us or through other available options.
