Medicare Advantage Plan Summary & Benefits

Anthem Medicare Preferred Core Medicare Advantage Plan for Roanoke City County, Virginia seniors on Medicare.Anthem Medicare Preferred Core (H4909-009), Preferred Provider Organization Advantage Plan, Roanoke City County, VA by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield

Anthem Medicare Preferred Core is a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) health insurance plan for seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries in Roanoke City County, Virginia with Medicare benefits. A Medicare Advantage PPO plan gives you freedom to choose which doctors, specialists, and hospitals you visit. You can lower your costs when you use network providers. Plus, predictable copayments and coinsurance make it easier for you to budget healthcare costs. The monthly premium is $71.00.

Maximum Out-of-Pocket (MOOP) Expense

All Medicare Advantage plans have a maximum out-of-pocket (MOOP) limit of $6,700. This is mandated by law. However, plans like Anthem Medicare Preferred Core are allowed to offer a voluntary MOOP as low as $3,400.The Anthem Medicare Preferred Core Medicare Advantage plan MOOP is $4,500. This figure does not include your monthly premium or the cost of your prescriptions (Part D Coverage).

What this means is that as soon as your copayments and coinsurance for doctor visits and hospital care reaches $4,500, you will no longer pay copayment or coinsurance for the remainder of the year. This is your guarantee that a critical illness or serious accident will protect you from financial liability. It's just as important as the premiums and the co-payments.

When comparing Medicare Advantage plans with traditional Medicare, don't forget that you pay about twenty percent of all covered expenses, but there's no limit. That means you have a lot of risk unless you purchase a Medicare supplement policy to cover the gap.
