Many top insurance carriers offer Medicare Supplement plans in Colorado. These plans help fill the gaps in Medicare. Below we’ll discuss the many options Coloradans have with Medicare.
Medicare Plans in Colorado
Over 900,000 people in the state have Medicare. About 38% of those people have an Advantage plan. There are over 25 Part D options, and all beneficiaries have access to a plan.
There are many options because the best plan for your friend isn’t going to provide you with the same value.
Medicare Supplement Plan Enrollment in Colorado
The time to apply is during the Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment Period. When you turn 65 and have Part B, you’re eligible for Medigap.
You have six months to enroll without worrying about underwriting or pre-existing conditions. After that, you can still enroll at any time, you’ll just have to answer some health questions. Unless, of course, you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
Medicare Advantage Plans in Colorado
If you’re unable to afford the premiums for Medigap, a good alternative is Medicare Advantage.
A high premium DOESN’T equate to better coverage, a low premium doesn’t mean “affordable.”
In Colorado, 13% of Advantage members have Humana. Some Humana plans have 4.5 stars.
Medigap doesn’t have star ratings, but Plan G reviews express the value of coverage!
Medicare Prescription Drug Plans in Colorado
Part D covers drugs a doctor prescribes. If you don’t sign up when you’re eligible, there could be penalty fees.
There are low-cost Part D options; these are suitable for those with a few generics or no meds.
Depending on the prescriptions you take, you may need a more extensive plan.
A higher premium with lower copayments is a possible solution. Talking with an agent is the easiest way to identify a suitable Part D option for you.
