Different Options For Medicare Plans in Raleigh NC

Your original Medicare plan is managed by the federal government. Typically, Medicare Part A and B cover a part of your services, but there is also an additional cost that must be covered by the individual. In most cases, you can choose any doctor, so long as you are enrolled in Medicare and the doctor is accepting new Medicare patients. Unfortunately, prescription drugs are not covered by the original Medicare plan in Raleigh.

Medicare Part A covers your hospital visits, home health care, nursing facility care, and more.

Medicare Part B   covers preventive services, medical supplies, certain doctors’ services, and outpatient care.

These benefits are provided through Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans, Special Needs Plans(SNP), Private Fee-for-Service Plans(PFFS), Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO), and Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO).

Medicare Supplement Plans or Medigap in Raleigh NC

Medigap or a Medicare Supplement Plan, in Raleigh, is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan. Medigap requires that you carry an original Medicare Part A + B plan, and requires you to pay an additional premium to a separate insurance company, on top of what you pay for Medicare Part B. Medigap is guaranteed to be renewable, even if you develop health problems and can not be canceled if you have paid your premium. A Raleigh Medigap plan is only available to a single individual, which means you will need a separate Medigap plan for a spouse. You can not carry Medicare Advantage and Medigap at the same time. Medigap Plans that were registered after 2006 are not eligible for prescription drug coverage.

Medicare Supplement Insurance plans in Raleigh, also known as Medigap are useful and can help you pay some of the costs of healthcare that are not covered by your original Medicare Plan, such as:

  • Coinsurance
  • Copays
  • Deductibles
