Iowa Medicare Part D 2017 Coverage Gap
If you have expensive prescriptions, chances are that you will reach the Medicare coverage gap (aka, donut hole) on your plan. The Affordable Care Act law closes the gap over the new few years, but it’s still with us in 2017. Until it’s gone you’ll need to use good sense to get through the period when your medications are not covered.
Medicare Part D Plans and Iowa Medigap Policies Work Together
While you’re looking at Medicare Prescription Drug plans, it’s a good idea to shop for supplemental Medicare insurance that will cover some or all of the excess costs not paid by Original Medicare. Even with the new healthcare law reforms, Medicare only covers about 80 percent of the hospital and doctor bills incurred by most seniors in Iowa, leaving you to handle the rest. A Medigap policy protects you from big bills, giving you peace-of-mind. We make it easy to find the lowest cost policy available in Iowa with our complete catalog of Medigap policies for seniors living in Iowa.
Medicare Part D Benefits Offered by Most Medicare Advantage Plans in Iowa
More than 15-million people on Medicare enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan in 2015. The biggest reason for switching is the added benefits and lower out-of-pocket costs. Of the additional benefits included, by far the most common is prescription drug coverage. Our catalog will show you all Medicare Advantage plans in Iowa and the features, benefits and coverages they offer.
