Medicare for Seniors

The Annual Election Period (AEP) for Medicare runs annually from October 15th-December 7th. During this time, you can make any changes to your coverage, including medical and prescription. You must have both Part A and Part B to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan or a Medicare Supplement Plan. The new premium for Part B beginning in 2019 for most people will remain around $134 per month. This premium applies to new Medicare beneficiaries who are:

  • Enrolling in Medicare Part B for the first time in 2019
  • Not currently receiving Social Security benefits
  • Being billed directly for their Part B premiums
  • Eligible for Medicare and Medicaid (Dual Eligibility)
  • Or have had a modified adjust gross income (AGI) reported on their tax return 2 years ago and is above a certain amount

It is always a good idea to review your coverage each year to make sure that both your medical and prescription coverage are adequate for the upcoming year. Some Medicare plans have annual changes to their benefits each year, while others plans benefits may stay the same, they are not without an increase in their monthly premium costs from time to time.

Prescription drug coverage can be the same. They have changes to their monthly premiums, changes to their formulary and changes to how your prescriptions will be covered. Because of this, it is best to have prescription needs reviewed annually.

At Insure for Health, we want to be a resource to you to make sure that your coverage is going to be adequate for you for the upcoming year. We will sit down with you and discuss your medical needs and your concerns. We will do an analysis of your current prescriptions. We will listen to your needs and concerns to assist you in narrowing down your choices.

Moving forward, we will reach out to you prior to each Annual Election Period and be available if you would like to either meet in person or over the phone to review your current needs for coverage. We do our best to accommodate your needs, so we are happy to come to your home if that is convenient to you.

We know that insurance agents are a dime a dozen. At Insure for Health, our focus is building relationships with our clients in a way that is most convenient and comfortable for them. We are unique in the services we provide because we provide support and service to our clients all throughout the year when you may be in need, not just at the time of enrollment. And we enjoy getting to know each of you on a personal basis and look forward to serving your health insurance needs long term.
