2017 Coverage Gap on all Louisiana Medicare Part D Plans
As you are likely aware, the Medicare Part D coverage gap, also known as the donut hole, is still with us for a few more years. The new healthcare law is gradually phasing out the coverage gap. Until the donut hole is gone for good, you need to budget for your medications accordingly.
Combining a Louisiana Medigap Policy and Part D Plan Benefits
Healthcare reform has not changed the 80 percent coverage you get from Medicare for hospital and medical services. You are still responsible for paying the remaining 20 percent of all hospital and doctor bills. Even a brief hospital stay can cost you thousands of dollars out-of-pocket. You need to protect yourself from the potential financial disaster of an injury or illness, because your Original Medicare does not have you covered. That’s why we publishe a complete catalog of Medigap plans available to Louisiana seniors. Medigap supplemental Medicare policies are regulated by your state board of insurance. They are completely compatible with all Medicare Part D plans.
Get Medicare Part D Bundled with a Louisiana Medicare Advantage Plan
The rising cost of healthcare is the number one reason more Louisiana seniors than ever are switching to Medicare Advantage. With lower out-of-pocket costs, an annual out-of-pocket cap, and precription drug benefits (on most plans), it makes a lot of sense. More than 15-million people on Medicare made the switch in 2015. Have you compared the benefts? We have a complete catalog with all Louisiana Medicare Advantage plans that makes plans easy to compare.
