Medicare Part A, which covers most people with medical expenses under $10,000 a year, is set to expire on January 31.
What does this mean for your insurance?
We have the full scoop on Part B, Part B plans and Medicare Part D coverage in 2017.
But first, here are a few things you should know about Part B and Part D. What is Part B?
Part B covers people aged 65 and over who qualify for Medicare Part C. It’s funded by premiums, and the money is used to pay for the cost of the prescription drug, which is covered by Medicare.
What happens to Medicare Part I premiums?
Part I is the part of Medicare that covers prescription drugs, so Medicare Part X premiums are paid by Medicare Part III, which pays for the drugs and services that are covered by Part I. The Part III premium is paid by the federal government, and Medicare pays the Part III premiums to the states.
If the states do not fund Part III for the state, they can’t get Part I or Part II from Medicare.
So, if you qualify for Part I and Part II and you have Part B or Part D, you might be able to keep Part I (the prescription drugs) and Part I-only premiums.
Medicare Part II covers people older than 65, and Part III is for people who are 65 or older.
How much do Part B premiums cost?
Part D premiums cost $1,400 a month for Medicare patients and $1.50 a month per beneficiary, for Part B patients.
Medicare is currently paying $1 for every $1 of Part D for all enrollees.
Medicare plans that don’t offer Part D are not eligible for Medicare benefits.
The average Part D premium is $1.,750 a month, or $3,100 a year.
If you have a $25,000 deductible, that might be $1 per month for your deductible, plus $5,000 for coverage under Part D or $10 for Medicare-only.
Medicare benefits include: a free prescription drug if you get your prescription from a doctor, an up-front deductible of $500, and coverage of the costs of prescription drugs and medical devices.
What are Part D plans?
Part A is the standard Part A plan, which includes all Medicare enrollees, and is funded by Medicare premiums.
Part B is Part D that’s paid by Part II.
If Part D is not covered by a Part B plan, you’ll need to buy an additional Part B premium for Medicare.
How to get Part B insurance?
To find a Part D plan, go to the Medicare website.
You can choose to buy Part B directly from Medicare or buy it through a broker.
To buy Medicare Part 2, go directly to Medicare.
If there are no Part B policies available, go through the Health Care Marketplace.
You’ll need an account at Health Care for Medicare and Medicaid.
How do I pay my Part B Premium?
You’ll pay a Part A premium, which you can see on your Medicare premium statement.
Part A premiums are a fixed amount.
You pay a flat $1 monthly rate.
You must have an enrollee with a Part 1 plan in order to get your Part B subsidy.
Your Part A rate for the month you pay your premium is the same as your Part 1 rate.
The difference is your Part D rate, which depends on your enrollee and what your plan covers.
You’re not allowed to pay less than the Part D subsidy for Medicare or Medicaid.
If your enrollees pay their Part D rates by check, credit card or cash, they’ll get a $5 rebate.
If they pay their premiums directly, they won’t get any rebate.
What’s the difference between Part D and Part A?
The Part D program covers the cost for prescription drugs but not medical devices or medical equipment.
The Medicare Part 4 plan is also part of Part A and covers medical devices and medical equipment for Medicare enrollee enrollees (and their dependents).
Medicare Part 1 plans also cover medical devices, but not prescription drugs.
What about Part D?
Medicare Part 3 is part of the Part B program, which offers low-cost prescription drugs (or “medication benefit plans”) and medical device coverage.
Medicare also covers the costs for prescription medications but not covered medical devices (such as medical equipment).
You must enroll in a Part 3 plan and pay the Part 3 premiums for that plan.
You might be eligible for Part 3 if you’re 65 or over and have a Part 2 plan, or you can’t afford to pay more than Part 3 for Medicare Advantage.
What if I don’t have a Medicare Part M plan?
You’re still covered under Medicare Part 6 for Part 1 enrollees and Part 2 plans.
But if you don’t use Part 2 or Part 3, you can still qualify for the Medicare Part P plan, because Medicare covers Part 1 and Part 3 plans.
