Disability & Medicare: Be Careful

5/28/2019
More
You can become eligible for Medicare Part A & B & D after 24 months of receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. However, people make mistakes from that point, and the Social Security Administration's communications of rights and options may not be sufficient for you to understand that the Late Enrollment Penalties "calculation period" for Part B & Part D have started. So either a) you do not have health insurance and creditable coverage for prescriptions, subjecting you to...

Enrollment Windows Closed (Mostly)

4/25/2019

Sorry, it's not the Mother of Thrones Podcast.... Case #1: Medicare Annual Election Period and Open Enrollment Period are over. That means you cannot enroll in Medicare, Medicare Advantage, or Part D, unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. It's important, because people frequently make mistakes, and there's a twist for those that are late. Case #2: If you have lived abroad and are relocating back to the US, you need to know what you can and cannot do, prior to repatriating....

Art Lewis is a Great Host I am biased, of course: I have appeared almost 20 times on his radio station.

MYM Podcast (84): You Don’t Get to Use the Word ‘Emergency’ Easily

2/13/2019
More
There are three ways that one can get accepted into Medigap without medical underwriting... a. Medigap Open Enrollment. Turning 65, and those that do not have Part B yet. You are safe. b. Medigap Guaranteed Issue. Situations occur (SEPs) which allow acceptance into Medigap Plans A,B,C, F,K, L. This is powerful, but will lose its effective power at the end of 2019. c. Guaranteed acceptance. Entirely depending on the combination of state and carrier, there are some (NOT all) carriers that will...

MYM Podcast (82): Medicare Advantage Surprise Bill Problems, Can They Be Avoided?

1/25/2019
More
The problem: it depends. Say you are in a hospital and further testing is required. The samples are analyzed at another provider, even within the same hospital system. That provider may be out of network, and you could be unaware of this fact. Yikes. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, you may or may not be able to prevent this from occurring. The idea that a law could change this? Unclear. Example #2. Joint replacement surgery, done on an outpatient basis. Here, Medigap will be worse...

This Happens Sometimes it takes just one friend. That friend has listened to me present ** Medicare ABC's (https://youtu.be/9LtNTAkYD0w) on multiple occasions. He kept telling his female friend that having Medicare Part A, Part ,B and Part D alone was not a good idea. This year, he told his friend, "If I have to drag you there physically, I'm going to do it.” She relented, and called. After 10 minutes on the phone, she revealed joint replacement surgery, scheduled for November 28th. She said...

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

10/18/2018

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...

There are almost certainly more than 25 Part D plans, per state. This Podcast: how to avoid making expensive errors. This Tuesday Oct 9, Noon (EDT): LIVE YouTube Broadcast. Medicare ABCs.

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....
