Medigap & Medicare Part D vs. Medicare Advantage: Best Minnesota Full-Coveral Health Insurance
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 Minnesota, 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 Minnesota 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.
Minnesota Medicare Advantage Enrollment Options
In general, there are two times that you can enroll in a Minnesota 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.
Are you ready to enroll, but you’re not quite sure how? No problem, it’s easy! Most Minnesota 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.

Obamacare vs. a Minnesota Medicare Advantage Plan
Like a lot of Minnesota seniors, you might be wondering how the new Obamacare law and the Minnesota 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 Minnesota 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 Minnesota 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.
