Maximum Out-of-Pocket (MOOP) Expense
By law, private Medicare health insurance has an annual maximum out-of-pocket (MOOP) limit that helps protect you from financial disaster. The MOOP limit in 2018 is $6,700, but plans are allowed to have a MOOP as low as $3,400.
The most you will pay out-of-pocket, if you enroll in the First Choice VIP Care Plus Medicare Advantage plan, is N/A. This figure does not include your monthly premiums or your Medicare Part D coverage for prescriptions. This is what you pay out-of-pocket on co-payments and co-insurance.Be sure to compare the co-payments and co-insurance with traditional Medicare, but be aware that there are no out-of-pocket limits with Medicare Parts A and B. With Original Medicare you must buy supplemental insurance to cover the gaps or pay out-of-pocket.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rates the relative quality of all private health insurance offered through the Medicare Advantage program. The ratings are designed to assist people considering enrolling. CMS rates plans on a one to five-star scale, with five stars representing the best quality.
The First Choice VIP Care Plus 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).
