What is United American Medicare Supplement Plan K?
Medicare Supplement Plan K pays a portion of all Medicare covered benifits. It's designed to provide Arizona seniors a lower premium while giving good coverage on health care services. United American's Medigap Plan K has one of the highest out-of-pocket maximums of all Medicare Supplements, but it pays 100 percent of all Medicare costs once you exceed the annual out-of-pocket limit ($5,240). Premiums on Medigap Plan K in Arizona, insured by United American Insurance Company, start at $120.00* per month.
Plan K offers coverage and benefits for a variety of health care services by covering 50% of most of your deductibles and co-payments, including the following costs and benefits:
- Medicare Part A deductible
- Medicare Part B co-payment or co-insurance coverage
- First three pints of blood for a covered medical procedure
- Part A hospice care co-insurance or co-payment
- Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) care co-insurance
NOTE: Be aware that this supplement does not pay your Medicare Part B deductible or Part B Excess Charges. These are costs you are required to pay out-of-pocket. Medicare doctors can charge 15 percent over the Medicare-approved cost for their services. These Excess Charges are charged directly to the beneficiary.
Although Plan K is based on partial coverage, it completely covers the following:
- Medicare Part A co-insurance hospital costs up to an additional 365 days after Medicare benefits are exhausted
- Medicare preventive care Part B co-insurance
- United American Medicare Supplement Insurance Review (Arizona)
- Arizona Medicare Supplements that will save you the most!
