Obamacare vs. a Alabama Medicare Advantage Plan
Like a lot of Alabama seniors, you might be wondering how the new Obamacare law and the Alabama State Health Insurance Exchange affect Medicare Advantage Plans. In general, the new healthcare law leaves MA plans virtually unchanged. There are new rules specifying a medical loss ratio for the carriers, but that’s about it.
Here are some additional facts about your Alabama State Health Insurance Exchange. First, it’s not for Alabama seniors with Medicare or those with Medicare Disability, and you can’t trade your Medicare benefits for a plan on your state exchange. Second, your state’s health exchange won’t help you with additional benefits, regardless of your income level. If you need Extra Help, visit your local Social Security Administration office.
