Comparing 2020 Medicare Advantage plans to find the best options in Butler County, Ohio? You're in the right place.
Unlike Medicare Part D prescription drug plans, which are a statewide option, Medicare Advantage Plans vary by county. The reason for this is simple. Not all areas have the same healthcare resources or needs, so county-by-county plans work better.
Getting Enrolled in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Butler County
Most Ohio seniors qualify to join a Medicare Advantage plan. Certain diseases, most notably End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), may disqualify you from enrollment.
You can join or switch plans during a Medicare Election Period. For most people, the Annual Election Period (AEP), which starts on 15 October and ends 7 December, is the time they update their enrollment.
Most of us also get an Individual Election Period (IEP), but it only comes around once. Your IEP is based on your 65th birthday. It starts the month before and ends the month after, so you have plenty of time.
To get enrolled:
- Call a plan directly. If you know the plan you want, this way is quick and easy.
- Go to www.Medicare.gov and enroll through the government website. From there you can look up your medications, compare plans, and get your application started online.
- Use an independent Ohio insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Original Medicare + Medigap vs. a Butler County Medicare Advantage Plan
If you are worried that an HMO or PPO plan will try to limit your care, Medicare Advantage is not the only way to get full coverage in Butler County. For a little more each month you can have the best care available and lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Savvy seniors hold on to their Original Medicare and get the additional coverage they need with a Ohio Medicare Part D Plan (prescriptions) and a Ohio Medigap plan (supplemental Medicare insurance).
A Medicare supplement policy protects you from big medical bills and helps you lower the total annual cost of your healthcare. See our directory of supplemental plans to compare supplemental Medicare insurance available in your area. The good news is that all supplemental insurance is standardized, offering you the luxury to buy the coverage you need based on the lowest price.
