Approaching Medicare eligibility can be a confusing and overwhelming experience for many people. It’s easy to feel lost and uncertain about which plan is the right one for you. At Better Insure It, we understand the importance of choosing the right plan. Let us help make the process as stress-free as possible.
One of the biggest Medicare decisions you’ll is choosing between Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans. Both plans have their unique features, benefits, and drawbacks, making it essential to compare them before making your final decision.
Medicare Supplements, offer comprehensive coverage with higher premiums but cover most out-of-pocket expenses like copays and coinsurance. These plans work alongside Original Medicare and allow you to see any doctor or specialist who accepts Medicare. However, they do not cover prescription drugs, so you’ll need to enroll in a separate Part D plan.
On the other hand, Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans offer a more budget-friendly option with lower premiums and copayments. These plans replace Original Medicare and include prescription drug coverage as well as, Dental, Vision and Hearing. However, they do have a more limited network of doctors and hospitals. Without prior approval, going outside of your plan’s networks could lead to additional fees.
When evaluating costs, it’s important to consider premiums, deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance. Medicare Supplements plans typically have higher premiums but less cost-sharing for medical expenses, while Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans have lower premiums but require copayments and have an annual out-of-pocket maximum limit.
It’s important to note that you’re not stuck with your plan forever. You can switch between plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), which runs from October 15th to December 7th each year. Plus, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) to make changes at other times during the year.
