Medicare Nation

How much would you pay out-of-pocket for a five day hospital stay on Medicare? The majority of people have no idea! The problem with Medicare is there is too much information. An overwhelming amount of information and not enough resources. Medicare Nation solves that problem by educating you on all things Medicare, because there are not enough resources out there! This podcast will educate you about the components of Medicare, the different categories of Medicare Plans and Medicare benefits. On other episodes I’ll interview expert guests in the health and wellness field, about diseases, Medicare issues and current changes to the Medicare program.

Hello Medicare Nation! Happy New Year to everyone.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.

The Annual Enrollment Period is over. I hope each of you did your due diligence in deciding which plan will fit you best for 2017.

I have many episodes available for you to learn all about Medicare Advantage Plans, Original Medicare and Part D of Medicare.

If you determine the Medicare Advantage Plan you are on is not suitable for you or a loved one in 2017, you may have other options available to you.

Right now, you are in the Medicare Advantage Disenrollment Period. It started on December 8th and will end on February 14th of 2017.

Here is how you "dis-enroll" from a Medicare Advantage Plan during this time period.

1. Call Medicare 800-633-4227

2. Advise the Medicare Representative that you would like to "dis-enroll" from your current Medicare Advantage Plan and go back onto Original Medicare.

3. You can enroll in a stand-alone Part D prescription drug plan.

4. You can also enroll in a Supplement to Original Medicare plan, that will assist you in paying your out of pocket costs for Part A & Part B. 

Each Supplement to Original Medicare Plan (Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, Plan D, Plan F, Plan G, Plan J, Plan K, Plan L and Plan N.) cover different out of pocket Medicare costs. Research each one prior to enrolling in the Supplement plan to determine the plan that will fit your health & financial needs for 2017.

If you find it difficult to figure out if Original Medicare and enrolling in a Part D and/or a Supplement to Original Medicare Plan is right for you, contact me at either -

OR

Go to my website..... www.CallSamm.com and tell me in the "Contact Me" how I can assist you.

 

SPECIAL NEED PLANS

Are you a Diabetic? Do you have COPD? Do you have Cardiovascular Disease?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be eligible to enroll in a special needs plan.

A special needs plan is a Medicare Advantage Plan. If you are diagnosed with any of the conditions I listed above, you may use a special election to change to a special needs plan one time during the year.

How do you determine if you have Special Need Plans in your area?

Go to www.medicare.gov and click on the "find health and drug plans." The database will take you through several screens and you should select "special needs plan," when you advise Medicare what type of plan you are on.

The database will provide you with the special need plans in your area.

You can also look under special election periods, to determine if you have a qualified reason to change.

If you like Medicare Nation, please give us a 5 Star Review on iTunes!
