Maximum Out-of-Pocket (MOOP) Expense
All Medicare Advantage plans have a maximum out-of-pocket (MOOP) limit of $6,700. This is mandated by law. However, plans like Buckeye Health Plan - MyCare Ohio are allowed to offer a voluntary MOOP as low as $3,400.The Buckeye Health Plan - MyCare Ohio Medicare Advantage plan MOOP is N/A. This figure does not include your monthly premium or the cost of your prescriptions (Part D Coverage).
What this means is that as soon as your copayments and coinsurance for doctor visits and hospital care reaches N/A, you will no longer pay copayment or coinsurance for the remainder of the year. This is your guarantee that a critical illness or serious accident will protect you from financial liability. It's just as important as the premiums and the co-payments.When comparing Medicare Advantage plans with traditional Medicare, don't forget that you pay about twenty percent of all covered expenses, but there's no limit. That means you have a lot of risk unless you purchase a Medicare supplement policy to cover the gap.

The Buckeye Health Plan - MyCare Ohio Medicare Advantage plan is new and has not yet been rated by CMS. This is why the plan's rating is listed as out of 5 stars (as of 15 October, 2015).
