Medicare Advantage vs. Original Medicare with Medigap: Arizona Full Coverage Choices
Many seniors worry that a Medicare Advantage Plan will limit their services. If this is your worry, there is a second way to get full coverage healthcare. Medicare supplemental insurance combined and a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan work with your Medicare Part A and Part B benefits to give you the best coverage possible. If you are not aware of the benefits offered by Medicare Supplement insurance in Arizona, and how this type of plan protects you from excessive deductibles, co-insurances and co-pays, visit our Medicare Supplement Insurance page. All supplements sold in Arizona are standardized and regulated by the state. That means you can shop for the lowest price and rest assured that you’ll get all of the same benefits.
When and How to Enroll in a Arizona Medicare Advantage Plan
Medicare Advantage open enrollment for Arizona beneficiaries, called the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), happens every year starting on the 1st of October. AEP ends on the 7th of December, and your new plan election starts on the 1st of January. If you are new to Medicare, you are given a one-time Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). For most folks, their IEP happens then they reach age 65. In rare cases, Medicare will grant a special enrollment period. If you miss your IEP or the AEP, you’ll have to wait until the next AEP to enroll, so mark your calendar.
Are you ready to enroll, but you’re not quite sure how? No problem, it’s easy! Most Arizona seniors use an independent Medicare insurance agent to walk them through the whole process. Your agent is well versed in all of the plans available in your county, and they will help you compare plan features without trying to sell you on one plan or another. In fact, by law agents are required to follow strict selling and marketing guidelines. It’s all for your protection. If you’d rather not use a local agent, you can go directly to Medicare.gov.

Medicare Advantage Plan in Arizona vs. Obamacare
Like a lot of Arizona seniors, you might be wondering how the new Obamacare law and the Arizona 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.
You might also be interested to know that your Arizona Health Insurance Exchange (where Obamacare plans are sold) will not assist people with Medicare benefits. In other words, you can’t trade your Medicare or purchase additional health insurance on the state health insurance exchange (HIX). If you call the Arizona HIX hotline, they will simply redirect you to Medicare.gov. If you qualify for Extra Help, due to your income status, go to your local Social Security Administration office. Learn more about the healthcare law at www.HealthCare.gov.
