How does a Long Beach Medicare Supplement plan work: There are typically three parts. First you have Original Medicare, which consists of Hospital coverage (Part A), and Outpatient coverage (Part B). This alone provides pretty good coverage although you will have to pay for hospital and outpatient deductibles, coinsurance and 20% of all outpatient costs. These charges can pile up in a hurry.
The second part of this equation is to enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan, which typically pays the deductibles and other ‘out of pocket’ expenses which Medicare does not pay for. Medicare Supplement plans are “letter” plans; Plan C, Plan G, Plan F and several others. Each provides a different level of coverage. Plan F for example is 100% coverage, you don’t pay when you go to a doctor or hospital.
The third part, is the Medicare Drug plan, which is called Part D. These plans help cover your prescription drug costs. Most people mix-n-match their Part D Rx plan with their Medicare Supplement plan. Go with the plan which best pays for your medications. You don’t have to enroll in the same company as your Medicare Supplement.
All Part D plans are “County Specific” meaning, they are the same through out each county, and can be very different from each other in other Counties. Also, if you live in Long Beach, you much only enroll in the plans which are available in Long Beach or Los Angeles County..
