Benefits of Owning a Medicare Supplement Policy
ENJOY LOW OR NO OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS
Your Medicare Supplement and Medicare Parts A and B work together to minimize your share of health care costs. Therefore, unexpected medical events aren’t likely to impact your ‘financial’ health. Additionally, as Medicare deductibles, co-payments and coinsurance increase, your Medicare supplement benefits also increase to help meet your eligible expenses (depending on the plan you choose).
NO WORRYING ABOUT PROVIDER NETWORKS, NO NEED FOR REFERRALS
Keep your doctors and hospitals. Any health care provider that accepts Medicare patients must, by law, accept your accompanying Medicare supplement insurance. You do not have to worry about working within limited provider networks or needing to get pre-authorization or referrals in order to see specialists.
RARELY RECEIVE A BILL FOR COVERED SERVICES
When your health care providers accept Medicare, they bill Medicare directly for the approved services. Medicare pays their share and your Medicare Supplement plan pays the rest. The whole process is electronic so your claims are paid quickly and the entire process is streamlined to prevent headaches for you.
TAKE YOUR COVERAGE TO ANY STATE IN THE U.S. AND OVERSEAS AS WELL!
Just like Medicare, your Medicare supplement insurance covers your health care needs anywhere in the United States. That way, you can visit family and friends or long-term snow-birding anywhere you choose. Additionally, Some Medicare supplement plans provide medically necessary and emergency care outside of the country, up to a maximum of $50,000.
KEEP YOUR COVERAGE, GUARANTEED RENEWABLE FOR LIFE
Your coverage renews as long as you pay your required premiums. Your insurance company must honor your coverage for as long as you need to keep it and can not increase your premiums on an individual basis or cancel your coverage for any health reason.
What’s more, your Medicare Parts A and B and supplement benefits aren’t impacted by the annual Medicare open enrollment or the Affordable Care Act annual election period every fall. If you like your coverage and plan, you simply keep it and roll it over each year. There is nothing you have to do other than continue to pay your premiums.
