Minnesota Medicare Supplemental Insurance

Minnesota Medicare Supplemental Insurance With Medicare A & B

Each Minnesota Medicare Insurance Supplement is contingent upon the insured reaching age 65 and being automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A. Medicare part A covers hospital services, nursing, home health care, hospice care and all blood transfusions with the exception of the first three pints and some other deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance.

Minnesota Medicare Part B is voluntary, but it is highly advisable to enroll at age 65 or after you retire and lose or drop employer/group coverage. For every year that a senior does not enroll in Minnesota Part B, there  may be a penalty assessed. This penalty is added onto the monthly premium for as long as the senior is enrolled in Part B. Part B covers medical expenses, laboratory costs, outpatient hospital treatment, including health screenings, lab tests, exams, preventative health services and shots. Part B covers 80 percent of costs approved by Medicare, including doctors’ services and supplies. Premiums for Part B are based on adjusted gross income. Just like Medicare Part A, Part B you will have deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance. This means you can have a lot of of pocket without a Minnesota Medicare Supplement Insurance plan. Or better known as Medigap insurance.

Medicare Supplement vs. Medicare Advantage (Part C) in Minnesota

Minnesota Part C (Medicare Advantage) is designed to be at least the equivalent of Parts A and B. Part C plans vary greatly, and anyone thinking of getting Part C should review all of its coverage’s. Part C, also called “Medicare Advantage,” is private insurance from one of Minnesota’s insurance carriers but is regulated and run by Medicare. Any senior who has a Medigap policy cannot have both a Minnesota Medicare Supplemental Insurance plan and a Medicare Advantage in place at the same time.

Minnesota Medicare Supplement plans are designed to cover the 20% that are covered by Part A & B. Minnesota Medicare Supplemental plans can pick up the entire 20% that original Medicare does not pick up depending on the plan you choose.

Prescription Drug Coverage and Medicare Supplement Insurance

Part D, Medicare’s prescription drug coverage, is another policy that needs to be purchased from a private insurance company. There may be a deductible on some of the plans and others not at all. It also has a monthly premium payment. After the deductible is reached, Part D pays some or all of a senior’s prescription drug costs. Medicare Parts A & B with a Minnesota Medicare Supplement Insurance plans and a Part D plan could be the best move you have made for health insurance. These four things combined will give you a piece of mind and will help keep out of pocket costs down.

Minnesota Medicare Supplemental policies are vitally important for retiring seniors. Prior to turning 65, seniors should compare all of Medicare’s Supplemental insurance policies. They should also remember to sign up for Plan B as soon as they turn 65 to avoid paying a penalty (if not covered under another health insurance policy already).

Conclusion – Medicare Supplement Plans in Minnesota

You automatically get Part A when you turn 65, Part B is a “add-on” that you should be when you also turn 65 but you do not need it if you already have other coverage. Part B also will cost you a premium per month which more then likely will be deducted from you social security check each month. Part D or “Prescription drug coverage” will help with out of pocket costs for drugs. Part C is a great plan but is nowhere near as good as a Minnesota Medicare Supplemental insurance plan.
