West Virginia Medicare Supplement Plan G Quotes - Medigap Plan G Rates - Charleston Plan G Quotes
Compare Medicare Supplement Plans Here: https://www.seniorhealthcaredirect.com/quote-3/   This Rate Watch Wednesday is focused on the Medicare Supplement Plan G for a male and female, ages 65 through 75, in Charleston, West Virginia (zip code 25314).  Medicare Supplement Plan G is the most comprehensive Medicare Supplement Plan and it offers the greatest value. It allows you to keep your doctor and hospital, so you can go anywhere in the country that accepts Medicare. The only out of pocket with the Medicare Supplement Plan G, after the premium, is Medicare’s very small Part B annual deductible of $198.    As I have said before, Medicare Supplement plans are all Federally regulated by the government. There is no reason for anyone to pay more for their Medicare Supplement Plan G with one carrier over another because the letter of the plan dictates the coverage, not the carrier. You are not getting any additional benefits by paying more. That’s why it is important to shop your Medicare Supplement coverage every year, and we can help you with that.    You may ask, “Why do these companies charge different prices if they are all the same?” That’s a great question. Carriers have different administrative costs and they have different profit goals. There are tons of different reasons why these big companies charge different prices. What you need to know is, just like in your Medicare book, Medicare Supplement Plan G is the same with every carrier.   The Medicare Supplement Plan G covers the following services:  • The Medicare Part A hospital deductible – if you are hospitalized with the Medicare Supplement Plan G, you will have no hospital bill. • Medicare Part B coinsurance or co-payment – there are no co-pays with the Medicare Supplement Plan G.  • Blood (the first 3 pints)  • Medicare Part A hospice care coinsurance or co-payment  • Skilled nursing facility care coinsurance  • Medicare Part A coinsurance and hospital costs up to an additional year after Medicare benefits are used up  • Medicare Part B Excess Charges – This is when doctors are allowed to charge up to an additional 15% over and above what Medicare has approved.  • Foreign Travel benefits – this covers foreign travel emergency care if it begins during the first 60 days of your trip, and if Medicare doesn’t otherwise cover the care. It pays 80% of the billed charges for certain medically necessary emergency care outside the U.S. after you meet a $250 deductible for the year and has a lifetime limit of $50,000.  • There is no out-of-pocket limit   If you have any questions regarding Medicare, its coverage or its plans, please give our office a call at 1-855-368-4717 or visit one of our pages:   Website - https://www.seniorhealthcaredirect.com/  Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/MedicareBob/  Podcast - https://anchor.fm/MedicareBob  Twitter - https://twitter.com/MedicareBob  YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/RobertBache?_confirmation=1   #WestVirginiaMedicareSupplementQuotes #WestVirginiaMedigapRates #CharlestonPlanGQuotes

Medicare Supplement Underwriting - AARP Underwriting 2020
Compare Medicare Supplement Plans Here: https://www.seniorhealthcaredirect.com/quote-3/   "Medicare Done Right with MedicareBob"  Medicare Supplement Insurance Underwriting - AARP     Medicare Supplement insurance underwriting is NEVER required when you are first eligible and Apply for Medicare during your initial Open Enrollment Period (OEP). This is a 7-month period: 3 months before you turn 65, the month you turn 65, and 3 months after you turn 65. As a result, you can NEVER be disqualified for coverage based on your health condition during this period. In other words, you can have health conditions and your coverage will NOT be denied. Moreover, the plan can NEVER charge more if you have health issues during OEP. When you apply for Medicare during this period your acceptance into a Medigap Plan is guaranteed. According to Medicare.gov the best time to buy a Medigap policy is during your open enrollment period.   When is Medigap insurance underwriting required?    If the first time you enroll in Medicare Supplement Plan is AFTER your initial Open Enrollment Period, Medigap underwriting is required. In other words, you did NOT apply for Medicare during your initial OEP. When you switch to a different Medigap Plan after your initial Open Enrollment Period, then underwriting is required. Likewise, when you switch from Medicare Advantage Plan to Medigap Plan after your initial OEP, then underwriting is required.     Anytime you apply for Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap) outside your initial Open Enrollment Period (OEP), you will have to answer underwriting questions. Medigap policies are sold by private insurance companies. As a result, some underwriting questions insurance carriers ask will be different. However, many insurance companies ask similar questions.

Medicare Supplement Underwriting - Aetna Medicare
Medicare Supplement Insurance Underwriting     Medicare Supplement plans require medical underwriting in order to switch plans. So whether you are shopping for another Medicare Supplement plan with a lower premium or wanting to switch from a Medicare Advantage plan to a Medicare Supplement, you will have to answer medical questions after your first initial Open Enrollment period.      Everyone has the opportunity to get a Medicare Supplement when they first turn 65, or when they first start Medicare Part B, without having to medically qualify. This is called your Open Enrollment Period and it begins 6 months before and ends 6 months after your 65th birthday or your Medicare Part B start date. After that time frame, everyone is subject to medical underwriting.      The Medicare Supplement medical underwriting process only consists of around 20 medical questions, there is no physical or lab work. There are around 30 different carriers that offer Medicare Supplements and they all have different guidelines. In general, most carriers want at least a two-year stable bill of health.     Senior Healthcare Direct is licensed and appointed with over 30 of the top Medicare Insurance carriers for this reason. Every year we perform annual policy reviews for our clients and having access to these carriers allows us to shop every possible option for our clients. As for any potential clients, if they are not able to medically qualify with one carrier, we will research all of our licensed carriers for a carrier that will approve them.  If you have any questions regarding Medicare, please give our office a call at 1-855-368-4717 or visit one of our pages:    Website - https://www.seniorhealthcaredirect.com/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/MedicareBob/ Podcast - https://anchor.fm/MedicareBob Twitter - https://twitter.com/MedicareBob YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/RobertBache...  #MedicareSupplementUnderwriting #AetnaMedicareSupplementUnderwriting2020
