MYM Podcast (76): Medigap Contracts Are Identical, Carriers Are Not

10/18/2018
More
If your acceptance is not guaranteed due to federally-protected rights (Medigap Open Enrollment or Guaranteed Issue): a. Carriers can ask what they want regarding your health, b. Carriers can deny your application. These are known, what is not well-known is that they are not asking the same questions. To simply "get lucky" and get accepted under this idea is too risky, because when you apply, you are agreeing to the release of the fact that you have applied to a centralized location (MIB...

MYM Podcast (71): Problems with Medicare Advantage Networks

9/25/2018
More
Recently, a behind-the-scenes disagreement became public. UnitedHealthcare and Envision Healthcare are having difficulty in coming to an agreement, and that can affect Medicare Advantage policyholders in 2019. This podcast doesn't make a habit of casting blame on one party or the other, and isn't going to start now. That said, policyholders could be affected, if a healthcare provider was "in-network" in the past, and then suddenly becomes "out-of-network." That's the point of this pod....

MYM Podcast (70): Medicare Advantage 2019 and Dispelling Myths About Brokers

9/19/2018
More
Medicare Advantage in 2019 Is Certain to Bring: Enhanced benefits unseen in the past Increased confusion by consumers when comparing Medicare Plans Brokers will be required, because not only is Medicare Advantage evolving, with higher levels of competition, but the Enhanced benefits mentioned here need to be ACTIVELY compared, and that means multiple carriers. A captive agent cannot do this, it is like a Ford-only salesperson attempting to recommend a Subaru.

MYM Podcast 69: Medigap Plan N vs Medigap Plan G

9/17/2018
More
Candidly: I don't understand why Plan N and Plan G are not more carefully explained. I suspect the reason is that the other people that are explaining don't actually understand the process. This is ultimately a consumer choice, and deciding whether keeping $10/month is "worth it." Leave feedback and ask your questions!

MYM Podcast 68: Medigap Plan F vs. Plan G

9/13/2018
More
There's more than just the Part B deductible involved, and it isn't publicized much. I suspect the reason is that some people don't know what to do about it, or how to resolve it, producers frequently sell and run. For some, it may be irrelevant. For others, however, Plan F may be worth the extra cost. And some comments about 2020 at the end of the podcast, remember that Plan F will not be available to new applicants at that point. The audio isn't as good as the pure-podcast: it is also on...

2/15/2017

Partisans, Leave Your Politics At The Door If you are an extremist (I love Obamacare to death, I hate Obamacare to death), then here's one piece of advice: DON'T LISTEN, YOU WILL BE UNSATISFIED WITH WHAT YOU HEAR. If, However... You want an even-handed thought about the ACA War, and the effect it has had, the many misrepresentations when the ACA was enacted, and now, the repeal and replace process, then that is different altogether. You are more than welcome here. I have said it in public in...

You Know It's A Problem When... Kaiser Health News is as good as it gets, but it created the wrong title for this article. That is a huge problem, because if we cannot rely on KHN as a very good news source, then where is an everyday person to go (other than here, obviously).
