Livermore Medicare Supplements, also known as Medigap Plans, help to cover some or all of the costs that Original Medicare does not cover. Having a Livermore Medicare Supplement policy will provide you with maximum flexibility in provider (doctor and facility) choice. With a Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan, you can see any provider that accepts Medicare and is accepting patients. There are no provider networks to worry about with a Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan, and if you like to travel away from Livermore and the Bay Area, these could be perfect for you.
How much of the costs are covered really depends on which Medigap plan that you purchase. There are Livermore Medicare Supplement Plans A-N, and all have different amounts of coverage. If you are going on Original Medicare, then I believe that it is important to have a Medigap Plan in place. If you do not buy a Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan, you are putting yourself at some financial risk. If you do not purchase a Medigap policy, you will likely have to pay out-of-pocket for all of the costs of the deductibles and copays of Medicare.
Livermore Medicare Supplement plans are standardized by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (a.k.a.: CMS), so once you decide on the right plan for you, you can easily compare plans from various Insurance Companies. Livermore Medicare Insurance Companies selling the same Medigap plan can charge very different premiums. Remember, it pays to compare prices, which I can help you with! The Insurance Companies do change their rates on plans, as their costs go up, so it pays to have an agent you are working with to get you the lowest rate. Given the fact that a Plan F Medicare Supplement from one company covers exactly what medical costs another companies Plan F will cover, it pays to shop around for the lowest rate. Some companies do have some extra benefits with their Medicare Supplement plans. They may include:
- 24 hour nurse hotlines
- Even a basic gym membership, at no additional cost
An Independent Medicare Broker in Livermore can help you find the plan that is right for you. If a plan costs $15.00 more each month for the same plan, but you can stop paying for your $40.00 per month gym membership, maybe that is the right plan for you. If you don't go to the gym, or the plan is even a few bucks more, maybe it is not a good plan for you. Talk to a Livermore, CA local Independent Insurance Broker to find the plan that works best for you.
Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan N
Medicare Supplement Plan N is becoming a very popular plan with Livermore residents new to Medicare in Livermore. The Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan N costs less than the Plan F, and can be a good alternative to a Medicare Advantage Plan. The Plan N is a like a hybrid plan that covers most services, but there are copays and deductibles that you will need to pay.
The largest costs to consider with the Medicare Plan N are as follows:
- $20 co-payment for some doctor office visits
- $50 co-payment for Emergency Room visits
- Your annual Medicare Part B deductible ($183. in 2017)
- Medicare Part B excess charges (some doctors may charge up to 15% over what Medicare allows)
Call and let's talk about if a Medicare Supplement Plan N in Livermore might be a good fit.
Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan F
Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan F look like it is still the most popular Medigap Plan available in Livermore today. There are good reasons for this. The Plan F will cover all your Medicare deductibles and copays for everything that Original Medicare considers allowable charges. This makes having Medicare very predictable. A Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan F usually costs you less than what you would be paying for health insurance as a 64 year old in Livermore.
If you get a Plan F Medicare Supplement, then you will only have the following expenses for most services:
- Your Part B Premium
- The Livermore Medicare Supplement Plan F Premium
- Your Premium for your Part D Rx Plan
- Any co-pays and deductibles for your Part D Rx Plan
You still need to have a Livermore Part D Rx Plan, but most of your medical costs will be paid for with the first 2 above premiums. If you would like to find out which Plan F has the lowest premium in Livermore and good service for you, please give me a call.
