Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kentucky Medicare Supplement QuotesWhat is a Medicare Supplement Plan and how does it work?

A Medicare Supplement Plan is a health benefit coverage plan that complements (or supplements) your regular Medicare coverage. Although Medicare pays for many health care services and supplies, it doesn't pay for all of them. A Medicare Supplement Plan will help pay for those costs which could include deductibles, coinsurance and copayments when visiting your doctor. An Anthem Medicare Supplement Plan is also a good idea if you prefer to keep your own doctor and hospital and choose your own specialist and other health care provider.

Medicare has two parts:

Part A (Hospital Insurance) - Most people don't have to pay for this coverage.

Helps pay for:

  • Care in hospitals and an inpatient
  • Critical access hospitals (small facilities that give limited outpatient & inpatient services to people in rural areas)
  • Skilled nursing facilities (not custodial or long-term care)
  • Hospice care
  • Some home health care

Part B (Medical Insurance) - Most people pay for this coverage through a deduction in their social security check.

Helps pay for medically necessary services and supplies, including:

  • Doctors' services
  • Outpatient hospital care
  • Some other medical services that Part A dosen't cover, such as the services of physical & occupational therapists
  • Some home health care

You can find out if you have Part A and/or Part B by looking at your red, white and blue Medicare card

What are the costs?

You'll be responsible for a premium each month. There are also some out-of-pocket fees, depending on the plan you choose.

Are You Planning to Travel Outside the Borders of the United States?

Remember If you are covered by Medicare remember that Medicare provides no protection overseas while Medicare Supplements strictly limit benefits abroad. Foreign Travel benefits of some Medicare Supplements are limited to Medically necessary emergency care beginning during the first 60 days of each trip outside the USA. You are responsible to for the first $250 each calendar year plus 20% of the Lifetime Maximum of $50,000. That is it... More and more seniors are becoming aware of the many gaps and limitations and they are not leaving things to change. Go with a name you can trust.

Who is eligible?

You are eligible for a Medicare Supplement Plan if you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B and if your are age 65 or older or, in some states, under 65 with a disability and/or end stage renal disease (plan offerings and eligibility vary by state). You also must be a resident of the state where the policy is offered.

Why Anthem?

  1. Stable premiums. In most cases, Anthem members will pay less over a 3 to 5 year period compared to other companies.
  2. Access to any physician or hospital who is Medicare-Approved in the US. (No referrals necessary).
  3. $0 out of pocket costs when you see a doctor or hospital with Plan F.
  4. Policy cannot be canceled from underneath you regardless of claims history.
  5. No claim forms.
  6. Some companies will have two rates; a “new customer rate” and a “current member rate.”  They will advertise the lower “new customer ” rate, while their existing members are paying the higher “current customer rate.”  Anthem has doesn’t play these games, they have only “1″ rate which I believe is much better for the member.

These new customer rates in many cases are very attractive but in subsequent years the increases can be quite alarming.  Most Seniors stay with a chosen Medicare Supplement plan for years and beginning in years 2 and beyond these plans that were less expensive in the early years quickly become more expensive.  Currently if you are healthy after your initial enrollment you can make a change to your supplemental plan.  However if your health becomes an issue there are only a couple of states like California that provide Seniors with a window to make a change to their current plan regardless of health.

Medicare Basics

Establising a strong, fundamental foundation of Medicare knowledge will help you to make informed decisions about your health coverage. Medicare has 4 primary components:

  • Medicare Part A - Hospital
  • Medicare Part B -Medical Insurance
  • Medicare Part C - Medicare Advantage
  • Medicare Part D - Prescription Drug Beneftis

Medicare Part A: Hospital Insurance

Medicare Part A pays for the services that hospitals provide, such as the room, nursing services, and supplies for an inpatient stay. In some cases, Part A may pay for a stay in a skilled nursing facility, as well as home health and hospice care. Fortunately, most people do not have to pay a monthly premium for Part A coverag

It is funded by a portion of the Social Security tax you and your employers have already paid Part A, however, will not cover all your hospital costs. There is a deductible of $1,184 per benefit period for 2013. You must pay your entire deductible before Medicare Part A will cover any hospital expenses. In addition, if you are hospitalized for an extended period, you will also have to pay a daily coinsurance fee. This is $296 per day for days 61 – 90, and it rises to $592 a day for your 91st day through 150th day

These costs can build up. If you are hospitalized for 60 days, you’ll only be responsible for your Part A deductible. But if you are hospitalized for 100 days, you’ll pay almost $13,350.

Medicare Part B: Medical Insurance

Medicare Part B pays for the services that doctors provide, in the hospital or in their offices. It also pays for outpatient hospital services, long-lasting medical equipment like wheelchairs and walkers, and other medical services and supplies. Part B is optional. If you decide to enroll in Medicare Part B, you may also apply for a supplemental plan of your choice without answering health questions.

Part B works like most health insurance plans. You pay a monthly premium which is based on your income, that you can even have deducted from your Social Security check. For 2013, you must meet an annual deductible of $147.00. After that, Medicare generally pays 80% of the charges it approves. You typically are responsible for paying the remaining 20% or applicable co-payment, plus any charges that are higher than Medicare’s approved amounts if the provider does not accept Medicare assignment.

Medicare Supplement or “Medi-Gap” plans pay for many health care services and supplies, but original Medicare plans do not cover all. These costs are called “gaps” in Medicare coverage. A Medicare Supplement or “Medi-Gap” policy is designed to help cover these gaps. You pay a monthly premium for this additional coverage.

Medicare Part C: Medicare Advantage

Certain private insurance companies offer Medicare Advantage plans, also referred to as Medicare Part C. Medicare Advantage plans have a contract with Medicare that allows them to administer your Medicare benefits (Part A and Part B), so you have one source for your health care coverage. These plans may also provide enhanced benefits that go beyond those required by Medicare. To help you save more on the cost of your coverage, certain Medicare Advantage plans use provider networks (health maintenance organizations and preferred provider organizations) to reduce your share of the cost for covered services.

Medicare Part D: Prescription Drugs

Anyone who is entitled to Medicare Part A or enrolled in Part B will be able to enroll in Medicare Prescription Drug coverage. Here’s how it works: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have chosen a variety of private companies to offer Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs). Premiums and benefits may vary, based on your geographic region and on the company. However, average premiums are about $38 per month. This premium may be lower for those with limited income and resources. When Medicare designed its standard prescription drug benefit, it focused on providing solid coverage to the majority of people with Medicare. PDPs may offer Medicare’s standard benefit or plans with enhanced benefits

How to Enroll in Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kentucky Medicare Supplement

To be eligible for coverage you must be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and Parts B. Generally if you are over the age of 65 and you are enrolled in Medicare A & B you can choose to enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan. If you are just turning age 65 or you are within 6 months of your Part B start date, enrollment is guaranteed. Your enrollment may also be guaranteed if you have a qualifying event.
