Medicare Annual Enrollment is just around the corner and it’s time for us to start planning for your annual plan review because there are some exciting Medicare Plan Changes in 2019 coming your way.
I just returned from the Medicare Summit and I’m pretty excited about the changes we will see in Medicare for 2019.
Although I cannot give you the detailed specifics just yet, I can share with you a high level overview of what we can expect to see.
First, Medicare is changing its healthcare focus from TREATMENT to PREVENTION. This shift will allow the Insurance Carriers the opportunity to offer plans with a full host of additional benefits.
This is Good Stuff!
We will see more benefits and lower “out of pocket” limits on many of the Medicare Advantage Plans (Medicare Insurance Plans).
On the Prescription Drug front we will see significant changes to the Coverage Gap or Donut Hole.
Now, I know that this is still as confusing as ever, so when I say this is “good news” it is!
The Budget Act of 2018 moved up the date for closing the so-called donut hole for brand name drugs to 2019.
For 2019 and every year after, the cost sharing for brand name drugs after the initial coverage limit is 25%, versus increases we saw in the past of 35% and more…Now picture me doing the happy dance!!!
Medicare Supplement plans are also expanding coverage.
Several plans have added additional benefits such as Vision and Hearing.
I’m super excited to share with you all the exciting changes!
