Does the Mayo Clinic Accept Medicare Supplement Plans?

Can you use your Medicare Supplement plan at the Mayo Clinic? Yes.
Depending on which Medicare Supplement plan letter you have, you may or may not be responsible for paying “Excess Charges”.

The most important question, then, is not whether or not they accept Medicare, as we cover in the video, but whether the specific procedure that you wish to have done is covered by Medicare.

Medicare Supplement plans only supplement what is APPROVED by original Medicare. If Medicare approves the procedure and pays their 80%, the Supplement plan, also known as Medigap, will fill in the remaining portion, subject to your deductible and possible co-payment, depending again on which Medicare Supplement plan letter you signed up for.

In this video, we go over the details of how Medicare and Medicare Supplements are accepted at the Mayo Clinic. Also, for those on a Medicare Advantage plan, you must look very closely at your plan and communicate with Mayo on it, as these private plans are most often not accepted at centers of excellence like the Mayo Clinic.

GE Retiree Options Outside the “Exchange” Save Money

GE employees should get a second opinion because they can save up to $1,000 per person, per year, starting in year ONE.

See the video:


Can you buy a Medicare plan outside the exchange? Yes.

As long as you buy at least the drug plan OR the Medicare plan through the exchange, you WILL get the reimbursement money.

When this same thing happened to AT&T retirees in 2014, we successfully helped them save, collectively, millions of dollars that would have otherwise gone to the most expensive insurers in their markets. They used those savings for other policies and as a cushion against future rate increases.

All they had to do was purchase the Part D drug plan through the exchange, and then entire reimbursement money was there to pay both premiums.

We provide a second opinion, and independent review of ALL of the plans available to you.
If you prefer to work with the exchange, a huge call center where you are likely to get a different new-hire every time you call in, you certainly can. If you want the benefit of 20 years of experience and true independence, call us for that second opinion.

You can call us 24 hours a day at 1-800-729-9590

If we’re not in the office, please leave your information on our phone so that we can call you first the next morning.

Go from Medicare Advantage to Medicare Supplement

North Carolina Medicare Plans

Seniors in North Carolina are facing more challenges with regard to Medicare Advantage plans.

Many are finding that Medicare Supplement (Medigap) is a far better way to go than the ever-shifting sands of Medicare Advantage, as shown in a recent story by the Charlotte Observer, which showed that over 57,000 North Carolina seniors are losing their Medicare Advantage plans in 2015.

Seniors on Medicare Supplement plans are guaranteed renewable, with the same benefits they signed for, for life. The benefits on Medigap plans cannot be changed, and this means stability.

Seniors who are 75, 80, 85 years old should not have to compare nuances of changing co-payments, doctor networks, and new requirements that are constantly changing on Medicare Advantage plans each time the one-year contract expire.

Seniors looking for a second opinion on their Medicare plans should call the Senior Savings Network at 1-800-729-9590.

What does Medicare cover on Cancer?

What does Medicare cover on cancer?

What does Medicare Advantage cover on cancer?

What do Medicare Supplements cover on cancer?

This video seeks to answer the question, based on a letter written in on someone with cancer that wants to go to MD Anderson Cancer center, yet had a Medicare Advantage Plan.

Medicare Advantage can limit your cancer coverage.
Be sure to check the Medicare Advantage coverage on chemotherapy. Often, it is only 80{57afd372ef552335ba870edf523b8e4a4ddf98dad7cf21c72091c800f1bfac05} of the cost. That’s no better than just being on Medicare, because Medicare Part B already covers just 80{57afd372ef552335ba870edf523b8e4a4ddf98dad7cf21c72091c800f1bfac05} of the cost of chemo.

A Medicare SUPPLEMENT, however, is different than Medicare Advantage. The Medicare Supplement fully covers cancer and cancer treatments.

All of the Medicare Supplement plans are standardized. There are no hidden tricks or small print. They’re accepted by every doctor that accepts Medicare.

What is the Cheapest Medicare Supplement Policy?

Many seniors and those just turning 65 often ask the question, “What is the cheapest Medicare supplement policy?”

This question of finding the best Medicare supplement policy is a great one and has a different answer based on a number of factors. Let’s look at a few of these factors.

Where you live, and your current age and any chronic conditions you may have will factor in to whether or not you can get the lowest possible price. Having an independent Medicare Supplement agent working for you can potentially save you thousands of dollars each year.

Many seniors join a Medicare supplement plan when they turn 65 and never again worry about changing companies or checking the market to see if there is a better price. This is when an independent agent can really pay off. By shopping the entire marketplace, you will soon learn that the cheapest Medicare Supplement policy is often the exact same benefit plan you have (Plan F, for instance) but as much as $100 per month cheaper.

Why is this? Because different insurance companies may charge different rates for the same, exact policy. That is a quote from the Medicare & You guidebook, and the Medicare program wants you to know that a Plan F is a Plan F, regardless of how much you’re paying for it. The cheapest Medicare supplement plan does not mean lower quality, as it is the same, exact coverage.

With an independent Medicare agent working for you, you have the opportunity to shop the entire market without costing you a dime. The services are absolutely free, as the commissions are paid by the insurance companies. If you would like a free analysis of the cheapest Medicare plans in your area, call the Senior Savings Network at 1-800-729-9590. We would be happy to help you in your search. Our service is free.
