Under part A Medicare covers inpatient care, home health care & hospice care. Medicare part B covers outpatient services, doctors, labs, x-rays, etc.

4. Can you explain the coverage gap?

There are different phased in the prescription program. Phase one, is where you pay the plan deductible is there is one, Phase two, you pay the plan copays until your total drug cost reached the initial coverage limit. Phase three- the coverage gap is where is you pay 25% of all medication until you reach the out of pocket maximum. Phase four is catastrophic coverage where you will pay no more than 5% for the copay.

5. Why do I have to pay for part B if I’m enrolling in another plan?

By paying your part b premium the health insurance you choice will get a monthly subsidy to help off set the cost of your plans premiums and copays.
