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 Plans F , G and N are purchased most often. Plan F is offered on a guaranteed issue basis and is the most comprehensive policy available. It covers all of the gaps left by Medicare Parts A & B and does not require any medical underwriting in certain situations. Plans G and N cost less, cover the most important gaps and oftentimes offer lower renewal rates. 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 2018, you will need to reach a $2,240 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 quotes 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 Advantage plans than just Original Medicare coupled with a Part D drug plan. Advantage (Part C) policies usually include Part D drug coverage, minimize the gaps in Medicare while also offering dental & vision coverage. While there is more out of pocket than with a traditional supplement, the exposure is less than just Medicare alone. In Ohio, Aetna, Coventry, Anthem BCBS, Humana and Medical Mutual all offer comprehensive MAPD plans. Your best options will depend on your county of residence and network needs. We can help.
Consumers purchase Medicare supplement Medigap plans to cover the costs that Original Medicare does not. 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 monthly premiums and benefits covered. 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 stand-alone prescription drug plans direct from AARP United Healthcare, Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Envision Rx, SilverScript and Humana (to name a few). All companies offer varying levels of prescription drug coverage, but follow the same outline as mandated by the government. There is not a one-size fits all with drug plans.
The most inexpensive Part D plan in Ohio for 2018 is the Evision Rx Plus. It costs $12.60 per month and can be a good option for those on no drugs or just a few generics. The Aetna Select, Humana Walmart and AARP Walgreens plan from United Healthcare also have competitive rates and premiums. 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. We can help you find which plans are best based on what you take and where you shop.
