Wyoming 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.
Combining a Wyoming Medigap Policy and Part D Plan Benefits
Medicare does not pay for all of your hospital and doctor bills. Even with the new healthcare law in place, Original Medicare only pays about 80 percent of your major healthcare bills in Wyoming. The rest comes out of your pocket. To protect yourself from the high cost of an illness or injury that requires hopitalization, you need a Medigap supplemental Medicare insurance policy. We publish a complete catalog of Medigap policies for Wyoming seniors with the tools you need to find the most affordable policy with the best coverage.
Most Wyoming Medicare Advantage Plans Include Part D Plan Benefits
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 Wyoming and the features, benefits and coverages they offer.
