Using an independent agency like ours allows you to compare rates and benefits from several Medicare supplement providers in one place. You can avoid the hassle of trying to contact different companies and agents. We serve the entire state, including: Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati & Dayton.

Several new carriers have introduced or lowered rates on their Plan G Medicare supplement plans.

Mutual of Omaha and Liberty Bankers Life are also well-priced depending on your zip code and marital status. We can quote all of them for you direct in one place.
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.
In Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan F , G and N are the most often purchased policies. 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 have very small coverage gaps. Our clients ask about these three plans the most.
Plans C, D & M are also good choices depending on which gaps you most want covered. We will help you better understand the nuances that make each plan a little unique and why one is more popular than another.
Additionally, some insurance providers offer a High Deductible Plan F Medicare supplement. High Deductible Plan F only fills in gaps once the annual deductible has been met. In 2017, you will need to reach a $2,200 deductible first before coverage would begin. Medicare Parts A and B will always pay its share first, however.
High Deductible Plan F offers the lowest monthly premiums available. Standard Life & Accident, United American and Cigna all offer very competitive rates in this Medigap category.
If you are under age 65 and eligible for Medicare due to disability, there are no Medicare supplement plans available for sale at this time. This is a statewide rule that can only be changed by our lawmakers.
In most cases, we recommend Medicare Advantage plans for our clients under age 65. We can help you compare benefits and better understand how these Part C insurance plans work. They are different than Original Medicare, but can help to close the gaps in Medicare while providing known and finite out-of-pocket costs.
Most of our clients are better off with an Advantage plan than nothing at all. These replacement policies usually include Part D drug coverage as well as some dental & vision coverage. While their is more out of pocket than with a traditional supplement, the exposure is less than just having Medicare. In Ohio, Aetna, Coventry, Anthem BCBS, Humana and Medical Mutual all offer strong plans. Your best options will depend on your county of residence and network needs.
Consumers purchase Medigap plans to protect themselves from significant health care expenses. Some of the factors that will determine your monthly premiums include: age, gender, location, the chosen insurance company, marital status, and plan selected.
Our clients usually choose a plan based on out-of-pocket costs and monthly premiums. 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 supplements are “guaranteed renewable.” This means the insurance company cannot cancel your coverage as long as premiums are paid on time. Insurance companies can increase rates each year for everyone each year, but they cannot single you out individually. We help our clients (and prospective clients) shop and keep the most affordable plans.
Supplements, by rule, cannot include Part D drug coverage. We offer prescription drug plans direct from AARP United Healthcare, Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Coventry First Health, SilverScript 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 needs.
The most inexpensive Part D plan in Ohio for 2017 is the Humana Walmart policy. It costs $17.00 per month and can be a good option for those on just a few generics. The Aetna Saver and AARP Walgreens plan from United Healthcare are also competitive. We can help you compare those and several others.
All Part D plans offer competitive premiums and copay options while covering almost all of the most common medications. Most plans offer a nationwide pharmacy network and mail order options for quick and reliable access to prescription Part D approved drugs.
