You can get all the details here https://youtu.be/oKHq3H1IkF0 Every plan has different prices and costs but the main components are the same and the cost of the donut hole or coverage gap is universal across all Medicare Part D 2018 (Prescription Drug Coverage). The amount of the different stages are all set by Medicare and change every years. In 2018 Medicare Part D Plans the donut hole is less than in 2017 and that should continue for the next few years. You must remember that the amount of money spent during the initial phase is what you AND the Medicare Part D Plan spend. After that the amount spent to get out of the coverage gap is only what you spent (called True out of pocket), it has nothing to do with what the prescription drug plan has spent. _________________________________________________________________ **Dont miss a single Medicare Supplement video Click Below to SUBSCRIBE** https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpeawY2B_hUuZhV26QAwRuQ?sub_confirmation=1 _________________________________________________________________ Loran Marmes Medicare Solutions Team https://medigapinfo.net/ Facebook: https://business.facebook.com/medicaresolutionsteam

How to Choose a Medicare Drug Plan. Complete Medicare Resource Center here: http://www.MedicareonVideo.com 1-877-88KEITH (53484) Important Points to Know about Obtaining Medicare Drug Coverage When enrolling for Medicare you can get coverage for prescription drugs. Medicare drug coverage is available through private insurance companies approved by Medicare. There are different ways to obtain the coverage with associated costs that vary depending on other coverage used with this plan. It is important to know how this works with other insurance you have in order to get the best coverage. Here is what you need to know about this option. How Do You Get Coverage You have two options to get drug coverage including through Medicare Part C Advantage Plan or through Part D Prescription Drug Plan. The most common way is through Part D. This plan can be used with original Medicare and other plan option such as a Medical Savings Account (MSA) or Medicare Cost Plans. Part C or Medicare Advantage Plan includes using a PPO or HMO along with benefits similar to Part A and B. You may be required to sign up for Part A and B in order to obtain Part D with Part C. Medicare drug coverage options may vary and could change depending on what Part C covers. Associated Costs and Getting Help Your income will determine how much you pay toward prescription drugs. If you receive Social Security you can have costs deducted from your Social Security payment. You may be required to satisfy an annual deductible before the drug coverage starts to pay. You may be required to pay a copay or coinsurance after paying a deductible (if your plan has this requirement). There are drug plans with different tiers that show how much you could pay depending on related costs. Generic drugs may have cheaper copay than name brand. The copay can be anywhere from a few dollars to $10 or so. The coinsurance is roughly a percentage of what the beneficiary pays before Medicare insurance covers costs. An example may be 20 or 25 percent. When you pay for drugs you are paying for a month supply unless stated otherwise. There is potential for out-of-pocket costs to be paid by the beneficiary if the insurance does not cover the cost, but in few cases this is rare. Additional Tips on Drug Coverage You can get help paying for Medicare drug coverage if you qualify. You may need to provide proof of documentation to show your eligibility for assistance. Such options may allow you to pay just a few dollars for medicine. You can obtain help when you are receiving medication and before your supply runs out for the month. The amount you pay for your plan varies based on drugs used, plan option, where you go to obtain prescriptions, if the drug is on the formulary approved by Medicare, and whether you qualify for assistance in paying for drug costs. You may qualify for assistance by your state if you receive Medicare Part A and/or Part B coverage. Enroll for coverage during the initial period to avoid paying penalites.

Call 1-800-892-7981 or visit http://medicarefriend.com/ Hi there, I'm Glen with the Medicare friend. I have given advice to thousands of folks that are turning 65 and getting onto Medicare for the first time, and what I tell them is conveniently located below for you: Silverscript Part D vs. Humana vs. AARP & All Other Medicare Prescription Drug Plans You're getting ready for Medicare and you are wondering how in the world are you going to get your prescriptions covered and everybody is starting to mail you stuff. Silverscript and AARP and Humana- Humana is so hot right now! AARP is the one that your sister or brother or friend or mother or neighbor has and they love it so is that the best one for you? The correct answer is Maybe... Here's why- unlike Medicare supplements that are all standardized and have to offer identical benefits- Medicare Part D prescription plans can be very different. Each of these Insurance Companies gets to decide how much your specific prescription that you're taking is going to cost. Here's where it gets a little shifty- if a company is boasting that they have a $0 deductible that doesn't mean anything because they may have a much higher co-pay then the next one. And the company with the higher deductible could say that your prescriptions are in a lower-tier on their formulary. And ultimately you would end up paying less for the company with the higher deductible. Better yet some companies with high deductibles can say for your prescriptions, the deductible doesn't apply to them in the first place. And best of all some of the part D plans offer free 3 month supply prescriptions through the mail order. Each person that our team helps gets a thorough analysis on medicare.gov so they will know to the penny what they will pay on one plan versus another. So you can make sure you have the Best Plan! And another nice thing is every year we revisit this with you and make sure you are still in the Medicare Part D plan that saves you the most money overall. So if you get more prescriptions later, you're not stuck, you can switch to a plan that covers your new prescriptions the best. Call us now for a free consultation- We make this SO Easy for you! Talk to you soon. Here at the Medicare friend, we shop the entire market for you, because all we want is to see you happy, with great coverage, and keeping as much money in your pocket as possible. We have NO OTHER MOTIVATION than to give you the best of the best. Call us now or visit us at Medicarefriend.com to schedule a free consultation.

Visit: http://medicare-mini-course.com In this video I explain 5 things you should know about Medicare Part D before you enroll. There have been significant changes to the Part D program since its inception in 2006. Visit http://affordablemedicareplan.com and get access to hundreds of articles on Medicare Part D, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement insurance. There have been changes to enrollment periods, how premiums are calculated as well as adjustments to the Standard Benefit Model. Some things haven't changed such as who is eligible to join and how plans work. Here are 5 things you should know about the Medicare Part D program and Part D plans in particular. One. You need to know what Part D is and how it works. So what is Medicare Part D? Part D is optional prescription drug coverage for Medicare beneficiaries who are enrolled in both Medicare Parts A and B. Although Part D is optional, you should enroll when you first become eligible or potentially be subject to the Part D penalty which will have an impact on what you pay for as long as you are enrolled in a plan. Part D is offered by private insurance companies and is not part of original Medicare. Plans are offered by service area and you must live in a service area to be eligible for a plan. You can get Part D in one of two ways; you can enroll in a stand-alone plan (PDP) or you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan that includes drug coverage. Plans are effective for one calendar year. Two. Understanding the terminology of Part D is important. Medicare Part D Premiums -- Premiums are paid monthly and have ranged in the low to mid $30 range for the past few years. Part D Deductible -- The deductible is the amount you may be required to pay prior to your plan paying a share of prescription drugs. Part D copayment / Coinsurance -- This is the amount you pay at the pharmacy. Drugs are place in tiers and normally a plan has four or five tiers. Initial Coverage Limit -- This amount is set annually by Medicare and will be the same for all plans. It is the amount both you and your plan will pay prior to you reaching the Part D coverage gap. Medicare Part D Donut Hole -- This is the coverage gap that you may enter if you exceed the initial coverage limit. Part D Catastrophic Coverage -- This phase is reached after you have spent a fixed amount in the Donut Hole, currently $4750. During this phase you will pay very small copayments or coinsurance amounts for your drugs. Third. You should understand the Medicare Part D enrollment periods. There are 3 types of Part D enrollment periods. When you first become eligible you have a seven month window to submit an application. If starts three months before the month you turn 65 or if you will receive Part D due to a disability it will start 3 months prior to your 25th month of disability. The Part D Annual Election Period is the time to compare Part D Plans because you are able to switch, drop or enroll in a plan. Part D Special Enrollment Periods are time that you can enroll in a plan, normally due to a change in your individual circumstances. Such as, moving from a plan's service area or losing other creditable drug coverage like from an employer or union (including (COBRA). If you live in a nursing home you also are entitled to a Special Enrollment Period. The 5 Star Special Enrollment Period allows you the opportunity to switch into or enroll in a 5 Star-rated plan once per year. Plans are rated from one to five stars by Medicare and are a reflection of the experience people who have been in enrolled in the plan have had. You are allowed to enroll between December 30th and November 8th. If you qualify for Medicare extra help you can change plans anytime. Fourth. You must know how to conduct a thorough comparison of Medicare Part D plans. You can see all available plans for your service area at the Medicare Plan Finder at medicare.gov. But don't choose a plan based on premium alone. There's a lot more to plan cost than the monthly premium. Start your search for the best plan by exploring the Medicare Part D formulary for each plan. The formulary is the list of drugs which are covered by a plan. There is no universal Part D formulary, each plan will be unique. Formularies are either Basic or Enhanced. Making sure all your drugs are covered is your number one goal. Also compare: Plan Deductibles Copayments and Coinsurance amounts Pharmacy Networks Part D Mail Order benefits Fifth. You should be aware that your Part D premium may not be what is published at medicare.gov. Premiums are now tied to your annual income. If you qualify for Medicare extra help, you may pay $0 premiums, but if you earn over $85,000 as an individual or over $170,000 filing jointly, you are going to pay more.

Americans pay more for prescription drugs than any country in the world, and the pharmaceutical industry earns billions in profits each year. Critics blame pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs, for a portion of those high costs through their role as middlemen between insurance plans, drug makers and pharmacies—but PBMs say they save consumers money.

Canada's health system is a source of pride for many Canadians. But we pay more for prescription drugs than almost every other country in the world -- and rising drug costs are taking their toll on people across the country. Canada is the only country in the world that has universal health care but no universal drug coverage. That means millions of Canadians cannot afford live-saving medication: they are splitting their pills, cutting back on their prescriptions, going deep into debt– and sometimes, even dying.

Subhead Cost in Drug Plans with Medicare Part D Varies From State to State Synopsis As an eligible Medicare beneficiary, you must select a drug plan and pay a monthly premium to receive the coverage, known as Medicare Part D. Drug plans vary by state and may offer extra benefits such as no deductible, higher coverage limits or cover additional drugs. Content Medicare Part D provides insurance coverage for prescription medications and is an important part of Medicare to consider if you’re eligible. It helps cover the “donut hole” opening you may have with traditional Medicare plans. You might need coverage for cholesterol and high blood pressure prescriptions—this is where Medicare Part D comes in. Under this particular program, insurance companies and other private firms contract with Medicare to provide prescription drug benefits to Medicare beneficiaries like you. How do you get a plan? You first must join a plan run by an insurance company or other private company approved by Medicare. Each plan can vary in cost and drugs covered. When choosing Part D coverage, there are a multitude of factors to consider: − Timing of enrollment. − Potential of penalties incurred for late enrollment. − The option to change plans. − Current prescription coverage. − Medication coverage. − Out-of-pocket costs. − Pharmacy convenience. − Future health changes. Watch the interview on the basics of Medicare with Curt Chojnowski, Principal at Executive Benefits Group and Medicare specialist. Curt has more than 20 years of experience in the industry and focuses on the ins and outs of Medicare coverage. If you already have prescription drug coverage, compare your current coverage with that provided through a Medicare plan. You want the most effective and efficient plan available, because as a senior, you need to keep as many dollars in your pocket as possible. The process of making decisions concerning health care insurance can be overwhelming and cause you confusion because of the plethora of providers and variances from state to state. It’s imperative to seek the help of a financial or insurance professional to ensure you’re on the right track for your situation and to maximize your retirement income dollars. National syndicated financial columnist Steve Savant interviews Curt Chojnowski on the basics of Medicare and the strategies available to seniors. Right on the Money is a weekly talk interview talk show for consumers. The show segments are distributed nationally as daily video press releases.

How does Medicare Part D deductible work? Why do some PDP's have a deductible? Am I required to pay the insurance deductible up front before I can have a copay? Does the copay apply to all drugs? Isn't a plan without a deductible less expensive? Watch our videos site:http://www.georgia-medicareplans.com medicare part d In 2018 Georgia has 24 different prescription drug plans. Some #PartD plans have a deductible, others do not. Surprising how many seniors, and agents, automatically go for the plans with no deductible. In many cases your drugs may have a lower #copay and lower annual out of pocket cost when you choose a plan with a #deductible. Premiums are usually less as well when compared to plans that do not have a deductible. Roughly 6% of Medicare beneficiaries will ever enter the #donuthole. Many people can actively monitor their drug plan and avoid the donut hole completely. Every #drugplan has a #formulary. The formulary let's you know which drugs are covered by the plan, which are not. The formulary also determines your copay. Every Part D plan is approved by Medicare and each one is required to cover roughly 600 different drugs. If you are turning 65 and enrolling in Medicare, this may be your only chance to purchase a Medigap plan. Here is your guide to understanding GA Medicare. You don't have to receive Social Security to enroll in Medicare insurance. CMS is the agency that oversees Medicare. Senior healthcare insurance is commonly used to describe Medicare. How to enroll in Medicare? You may sign up for Medicare 3 months before your 65th birthday, the month you turn 65, and 3 months following your 65th birthday. You may enroll online (highly recommended), by mail or by visiting a Social Security office. Original Medicare has 4 parts. Medicare Part A covers hospital inpatient charges and has a per admission deductible Medicare Part B is for outpatient health care treatment. Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most seniors worry about hospital stays, but your major expenses will more than likely fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses. Original Medicare stand alone has no cap on your out of pocket expenses. You pay until you run out of money, get well or die. Medicare Part C is now referred to as Medicare Advantage. More on that later. Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs. Some Advantage plans have drug coverage built into the plan. Medigap and Advantage plans cover the same things, but what you pay out of pocket for your care, and where you receive your care, is very different. Original Medicare does not have networks. You can use any doctor or hospital anywhere in the US. Another plus is the ABN form which is only used with Original Medicare. Advantage plans are managed care plans. Some are PPO, some are HMO. In 2018 about half the plans are HMO with the balance being PPO. If you receive non-emergency out of network care under a PPO you may have higher copay’s and deductibles. Your max OOP may also be higher. Some plans do not cap out of network charges. Non-emergency out of network care charges may be denied if you have an HMO. #GeorgiaMedicarePlans #GAMedigapQuotes #Turning65 We represent several carriers including Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Humana and more.

Call us at 888-411-1329 https://www.remedigap.com/ecourse https://www.remedigap.com/medicare-supplement-videos/ https://www.facebook.com/Remedigap/ Medicare: 1-800-633-4227 https://www.medicare.gov/ I often get calls from beneficiaries wondering if they have to buy a Part D (drug) plan...especially, if they don’t take any medications. While it’s not required by Medicare, there can be consequences for not buying a Part D drug plan when you’re first eligible for Medicare. Join me in this video to see what options are available if you don’t need (or want) a Medicare drug plan. Option # -- if you don’t take any prescription drugs is to not buy a Part D plan right now, but wait until you actually need one. Now, that seems like a common sense approach..and perfectly logical, however, there are some things to keep in mind if you choose this option. At some point, you will probably need a part d plan, and when this happens,you can’t just buy it and have it start right away. Because, Once you’re out of your enrollment period, you have to wait until the Annual Election Period (10/15-12/7) to enroll and then wait until January 1 for the plan to start. You may also be hit with a Medicare Part d late enrollment penalty. Now, this isn’t a one time fee. It’s a monthly add on penalty...so, just like it sounds, it’s added to your Part D premium every month for as long as you have a Part D plan. Now, there are some individuals that are not subject to the late enrollment penalty. And, that includes anyone who is eligible for Extra Help also know as Low-Income Subsidy and anyone who had “creditable coverage”. This is drug coverage through your job, spouse’s job, retiree coverage or VA...and, what’s important is that your current coverage is as good or better than Medicare’s...this is the only way it’s considered Creditable Coverage. Now, keep in mind that you can’t just tell Medicare you had creditable coverage….you actually have to have proof...and it must be submitted to the Part D company within 30 days of their request. Let's say you don’t fall into these two categories and you decided not to get a Part D plan when you were first eligible, so you know a penalty is coming your way. And for example sake, Let’s also say that you went 40 months without coverage and now you’re signing up for a Part D plan. Your penalty is calculated by multiplying 1% of the “national base beneficiary premium” which just means it takes all the Part D premiums and comes up with the average...(so, in 2017 the average Part D premium is $35.63). So, 1% of 35.63 is .36 multiplied by the 40 months you went without coverage. Your Part D penalty is $14.40. Remember, this is a monthly add on penalty to your Part D premium and it will stay with you for as long as you have a Part D plan. And, it’s important to note that Medicare recalculates this penalty every year with the new base beneficiary premium. And as it increases, so will your Part D penalty. The second option is to buy a Part D plan when you're first eligible. Since you don't take any medications, it’s not necessary to pay a high premium for a plan. The point is just to have a plan in place to avoid a penalty when you do decide to buy a plan. Now, with that said, Part D plans are not a one size fits all. Some Part D plans cover certain drugs better than others. So, if your doctor has mentioned the possibility of you taking a particular medication in the near future, you might want to take that into consideration when choosing a plan. But, for most people a low premium plan is the best option. And, in this video I'll provide the steps you need to find the lowest monthly premium Medicare Part D plan.

It's insurance that helps people pay for prescription drugs. It is available to everyone who has Medicare. It provides protection if you pay high drug costs or have unexpected prescription drug bills. It doesn't cover all costs. You have to pay part of the cost of prescription drugs. Most people also have to pay an additional monthly cost. Private companies provide Medicare prescription drug coverage. You choose the drug plan you like best. Whether or not you should sign up depends on how good your current coverage is. You need to sign up as soon as you are eligible for Medicare. Otherwise, there may be additional charges.

Prescription drug plan (PDP) a government program that helps cover the cost of medications, prescription drug plan are only offered by private insurance companies contracted with CMS. If you're eligible for Medicare, you're eligible for a prescription drug plan. Original Medicare (Part A and B) doesn't include drug coverage. When to enroll in a Part D prescription drug plan you can only switch plans or start during certain times of the year: When you are turning 65 the 1st and last day, three months before and after your birth month or become eligible for Medicare. A seven-month period, i.e. someone born in June could enroll March 1st through September 30th. Coverage will start no sooner than 1st day of your birth month if done before hand, or no later than the 1st of the following month. If you have prescription drug coverage through your employer or VA, you don't need to enroll unless you lose that coverage. Also for now October 15th through December 7th is called the annual Open Enrollment Period, you can also enroll in a prescription drug plan or switch plans. If you enroll during this time, coverage will begin January 1st, but annually formulary, pharmacy network, premium and or co-payments and co-insurance may change so keep up to date. If a life change causes you to lose your prescription drug coverage, you may be eligible for a Special Election Period (SEP) If you miss these enrollment periods, you may have to wait until the following year to enroll. You may also have to pay the Medicare late-enrollment penalty (LEP) this is based on how many month you did not have coverage. The coverage gap is also known as the donut hole. This year (2014) limit is when you and the plan spend $2,850 on prescription medication. This is why it's important to keep up with what is being charged to your account even if the copay for the medication is $0. After this point your cost for prescription will increase, up to 72% of the total cost for generic drugs or 47.5% of the total cost for brand name drugs. Your cost will remain at this level until you have paid $4,550 out-of-pocket. Catastrophic coverage starts after the $4,550. At this point you pay the greater of $2.55 copay for generics and $6.35 copay for brand name medication, or 5% coinsurance for specialty medication.

Medicare Prescription Drug Donut Hole: Most plans with Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D) have a coverage gap (called a "donut hole"). This means that after you and your drug plan have spent a certain amount of money for covered drugs, you have to pay all costs out-of-pocket for your prescriptions up to a yearly limit. Once you have spent up to the yearly limit, your coverage gap ends and your drug plan helps pay for covered drugs again.

Turning 65? Enrolling in Medicare? How does Medicare work? Where can I find the best Medicare Part D prescription drug plan for my needs and budget? Watch our video. site:http://www.georgia-medicareplans.com medicare part d Medicare Part D can be a snake pit if you don’t understand how it works. Medicare Part D can be a blessing for some but a nightmare for others. Seniors age 65 and older are not required to buy a Medicare Part D plan, but if you don’t and then later change your mind, you will be subject to a Late Enrollment Penalty (LEP) of 1% per month. What is the Medicare Prescription Drug plan? How does the donut hole work? How can I avoid the donut hole? What if I can’t afford my prescription drug? Does Medicare cover vaccines? Doesn’t Medicare Part B cover prescription drugs? Why do I have to pay more because of my income? When is open enrollment? Do you have questions like these? I can help! In 2003, Congress enacted the Medicare Modernization Act that would forever change benefits, especially as it impacts the cost of prescription drugs. Did you know . . . Outpatient prescription drugs are not part of original Medicare, but rather a private insurance product marketed and administered by insurance carriers. Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBM) negotiate pricing tiers for prescription drugs but the insurance carriers decide which drugs to include in their plan. Insurance carriers also assign tiers and copays for the Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) as well as setting the premium you pay Medicare Part D is a voluntary plan but you will pay a penalty if you fail to enroll on a timely basis. Once enrolled, you must remain in the plan until the next enrollment period BUT your plan can add or drop drugs during the year as they see fit. Non-formulary drugs do not count toward your deductible or Rx out of pocket maximum. Adding to the confusion is the dreaded DONUT HOLE. In 2018, your ICL (initial coverage level) is $3750. Also in 2018, your TrOOP is $5,000 once you exit the donut hole and enter the catastrophic coverage level. I can show you ways to minimize your out of pocket costs and in some cases, completely avoid the donut hole. If you are turning 65 and enrolling in Medicare, this may be your only chance to purchase a Medigap plan. Here is your guide to understanding Medicare. You don't have to be receiving Social Security to enroll in Medicare insurance. CMS is the agency that oversees Medicare. What is Medicare? Senior healthcare insurance is commonly used to describe the Medicare program. How to sign up for Medicare? You may enroll in Medicare 3 months before your 65th birthday, the month you turn 65, and 3 months following your 65th birthday. You may enroll online (highly recommended), by mail or by visiting a Social Security office. Original Medicare has 4 parts. Medicare Part A covers hospital inpatient charges and has a per admission deductible Medicare Part B is for outpatient health care treatment. Doctor visits, labs, X-rays, MRI, CT scan (CAT scan), ambulance, ER, outpatient clinics, etc. Essentially any Medicare approved health care received outside the hospital setting. Treatment considered medically necessary under Medicare guidelines. Medicare Part B has a calendar year deductible. Once satisfied, Medicare pays 80% of the approved charge, you are responsible for the remaining 20%. Most seniors worry about hospital stays, but your major expenses will more than likely fall under Medicare Part B outpatient expenses. Original Medicare stand alone has no cap on your out of pocket expenses. You pay until you run out of money, get well or die. Medicare Part C is now referred to as Medicare Advantage. More on that later. Medicare Part D covers outpatient prescription drugs. Some Advantage plans have drug coverage built into the plan. Call (404) 252-5859 to speak with Bob Vineyard.

Pay attention to your co-pays for prescription drug coverage. Between 2010 and 2013 the average person who used an eHealth web site to compare their out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs could have saved over $600 a year – on average - on prescription drugs by switching to the plan that covered their drugs at the lowest possible cost. Too often people pick a drug plan that has low monthly costs, but don’t take the time to compare drug prices to determine their total out of pocket costs associated with the drug plan. Medicare has neither reviewed nor endorsed this information. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Follow eHealth at: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/eHealth Twitter: https://twitter.com/eHealth _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Get your Medicare questions answered by licensed professionals: http://medicare.com _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Get quotes and compare plans now at: http://www.ehealthmedicare.com
