2017 Medicare Part D Donut Hole in West Virginia
Are you aware that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has not phased out the Medicare Part D coverage gap (aka, donut hole)? Fortunately the coverage gap is shrinking, and it will be gone for good in a few more years. Until then, you need to plan accordingly, particulary if you have regular medications.
Medicare Part D Plans and West Virginia Medigap Policies Work Together
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 West Virginia seniors. Medigap supplemental Medicare policies are regulated by your state board of insurance. They are completely compatible with all Medicare Part D plans.
