Wisconsin Medicare Part D 2017 Coverage Gap
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.
Medicare Part D Plans and Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin, 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 Wisconsin with our complete catalog of Medigap policies for seniors living in Wisconsin.
Get Medicare Part D Bundled with a Wisconsin Medicare Advantage Plan
The rising cost of healthcare is the number one reason more 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 your compared the benefts? We have a complete catalog with all Wisconsin Medicare Advantage plans that makes plans easy to compare.
