If you’re reading this article, we assume that you have Medicare now or will signing up soon and you’ve probably found that there are considerable gaps in coverage because of deductibles, copays, coinsurance, and coverage gaps.
These gaps represent out-of-pocket expenses that you’ll be liable for when you see a doctor or go to a hospital. In the insurance business, we call this “Risk.”
When you purchase of one of the affordable Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement Plans, you mitigate (reduce) your risk of out-of-pocket costs because your supplement will pick up health care costs where your Original
Medicare Part A and Part B leave off. Most seniors have two options when it comes to health care costs:
- Pray each day that you can comfortably afford your share (the gaps) of your health care costs or
- Purchase supplemental insurance to fill in the gaps and reduce or eliminate your health care costs.
Part A Premium
For most people, there is no monthly premium for Medicare Part A. However, if you did not pay enough Medicare taxes while you were working, you could end up paying $422 per month for coverage.
Part A Inpatient Deductible and Coinsurance
The deductible and coinsurance for Part A are:
- Deductible for each benefit period of $1,340
- No cost if hospitalized for 60 days or less
- If hospitalized for 61–90 days, the coinsurance is $335 per day
- If hospitalized for more than 90 days, coinsurance is $670 per day
Although most patents spend less than 60 days in the hospital for one benefit period, can you imagine your costs if you were hospitalized for more than 60 days?
Part B Premium
Depending on your annual income, the standard monthly premium for Part B is about $130 per month.
Part B Coinsurance and Deductibles
The Part B deductible for 2018 is $134 (it could be higher depending on your income).
After you’ve met your deductible, you are responsible for 20% of all Part B covered services provided by doctors, specialists, outpatient therapy, and Medicare approved medical equipment. You are also responsible for 20% of doctor’s services while you are an inpatient.
Regretfully, many people are guilty of thinking “20% isn’t that much.” They are right if they are thinking about one doctor visit a year.
But for many seniors who are dealing with multiple health issues and are getting care from multiple physicians, 20% of the annual cost of healthcare can become financially devastating.
You can mitigate (there’s that word again) that risk by purchasing affordable Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement Plans and have peace of mind knowing you can afford the unexpected.
