Medigap & Medicare Part D vs. Medicare Advantage: Best Hawaii Full-Coveral Health Insurance
A Medicare Advantage plan is one option for full coverage health insurance, but you have a second option that works with your Original Medicare. You can keep your Part A and Part B coverage and supplement it with a Medigap policy and a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan. If you’re not familiar with Medigap policies in Hawaii, and how they pay your deductibles, co-insurances and co-pays, read our Medicare Supplement page. All Medigap plans available in Hawaii are standardized. That means a Plan F, as an example, has the same benefits from every company that sells it. The only difference is the monthly premium
Hawaii Medicare Advantage Enrollment Options
In general, there are two times that you can enroll in a Hawaii Medicare Advantage plan that’s available in your county. The first time you can enroll is during your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). For most people, your IEP happens when you turn 65. After that, you enroll in an MA plan during open enrollment, called the Annual Election Period (AEP). During AEP, which starts every year on October 1st and ends on December 7th, you can enroll, dis-enroll or change plans.
Enrollment itself is quite easy. Most people in Hawaii use an independent Medicare insurance agent. Your agent is a licensed expert who knows the details of all of the plans available in your area. They get paid to find the best plan for you, and they are restricted by law from using selling and marketing tactics deems unethical by CMS. The second way to sign up is to go directly to the Medicare.gov website or call the Medicare.gov hotline. Click here to get started.
Hawaii Medicare Advantage Plans vs. Obamacare
Do you have questions about how Obamacare affects MA plans in 2014? Trust me, you’re not alone. Quite a few Hawaii seniors are confused. What you really need to know is that the new healthcare law does not affect Medicare Advantage plans in so far as the consumer is concerned. The carriers have a few more regulations, but nothing that will affect your plan and plan choices in 2014.
In case you are wondering if you can buy Medicare Advantage or additional health plan benefits on the Hawaii Health Insurance Exchange (HIX), the answer is no. Medicare beneficiaries do not qualify for any Obamacare health plans, and you cannot trade or upgrade Medicare benefits for Obamacare benefits. The two are mutually exclusive. Hawaii Medicare beneficiaries who call the HIX toll-free number will be redirected to Medicare.gov. Read more about the Affordable Care Act at www.HealthCare.gov.
