As the Federal government boosts their marketing and education efforts around the Affordable Care Act,and are in the process of resolving website issues, it can be easy for seniors to feel confused and left in the dark about what, if anything, the new laws require of them. Compounding the issue, both the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) and Medicare both have enrollment periods approaching. 1-800-MEDIGAP has guidance and answers for those who are concerned about how these changes affect their medigap plan and medicare supplement.
As a result of the Affordable Care Act, consumers will be able to shop for private coverage and potentially receive subsidies to lower the cost of that coverage, but 1-800-MEDIGAP is still the top source for comparing medicare supplement plans. “This final quarter of 2013 has brought much uncertainty and confusion among Americans about the future of healthcare brought on by the Affordable Healthcare Act and the Health Care Insurance Marketplaces.”, says Scott Seward of 1-800-MEDIGAP.
According to various reliable web sources, there is no need for seniors covered under Medicare to do anything as they are already covered. However, there is nothing that would prevent seniors with Medicare from signing up for marketplace plans. The important thing to keep in mind is that if they do, they will not qualify for any tax breaks.
If Seniors are eligible or marketplace plans should they sign up for one of these over Medicare?For most medicare recipients Medicare offers better coverage at more affordable rates than the marketplace can. However, some seniors who pay a higher premium based on their assets may find a better deal.
