Annually, there are dates for enrolling into, as well as annual changes to benefits relating to Medicare Advantage insurance plans, including Part D prescription drug plans!!
Everyday, I witness total bewilderment of Medicare Recipients, with regards to the Requirements, Rules and Regulations presented by CMS/Medicare with regards to the many medical insurance products available to them. "I HAVE A MASTERS OR DOCTORATE FROM MY COLLEGE, AND, CANNOT SEEM TO GET THIS".
That includes Medicare Advantage Plans, Part D Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Supplement Plans.
SPECIAL NOTE: Special Needs plans for Diabetes and CHF patients! Find out more here!
Attention Arizona Medicare Recipients!
There are some extremely restrictive marketing rules and regulations being put into place that are intended to protect Medicare Recipients from telemarketing and sales of these products, as well as to spell out “what can be said” as well as “what cannot be said or done” with regards to presenting and discussing the many plans available. Over the past few years, the rules are getting more strict from CMS, and must be adhered to by all brokers!
This is why "You must initiate the call or contact with the agent or company regarding what you want to discuss or know about." YOU SHOULD RECEIVE PHONE CALLS OR E-MAILS ONLY FROM YOUR EXITSTING BROKER, OR SOMEONE YOU'VE GIVING YOUR EXPLICIT PERMISSION TO. This should result in you not receiving phone calls regarding Medicare Advantage Insurance or Part D offerings. Of course, the many mail pieces you continuously receive will probably keep on coming. We’re here to help you to understand the many products presented. REMEMBER; You MUST generate the call!
NOTICE: A REQUIREMENT FROM CMS MANDATES THAT A SCOPE OF APPOINTMENT FORM BE COMPLETED BY THE MEDICARE BENEFICIARY, WHO WILL SELECT THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE DISCUSSION OF EITHER OR BOTH: MEDICARE ADVANTAGE AND/OR PART D PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLANS! BY LAW, THIS IS A REQUIREMENT BEFORE A PRESENTATION OR DISCUSSION CAN OCCUR.
I am continuing my effort to be an advocate for seniors and Medicare recipients to ensure that they can obtain most healthcare coverage, for the least amount of money, without sacrificing benefits and insurance coverage.
Annually, each insurance company offering Medicare Advantage Products and Medicare Part D Plans, must submit their offerings for the coming year for review and approval by CMS/Medicare. Usually the plan benefit structure changes, relating to monthly costs (If any), co-pays, coinsurance amounts as well as benefit additions or deletions.
It is very trying for Medicare recipients to determine what the proper plan will be for the coming year, not knowing how other plans have changed and what they offer for the coming year, and whether or not a different plan may be necessary for their particular well being. ALSO, there are Special Needs Plans (SNP) for full AHCCCS clients with dental, vision and hearing coverage.
There are many concerns such as:
- “When can I make a change, if I feel I want to?”.
- “What happens if I want to change during “lock in”?.
- “I’ve just been diagnosed with a chronic illness, and, heard there may be some other plan available to me; and, I may be able to enroll at any time during the year.”
- “I didn’t sign up for Part D, and now I am locked out; what can I do, if anything?”
- “How do I find out if I qualify for extra help with a Medicare Advantage Plan?”
- “Where do I go the get help with my Prescription Costs?”
- “What is ICEP, AEP, SEP, and MADP?
- What is a chronic illness SNP Plan?
