Open Enrollment and Guarantee Issue Applicants
The Medicare Supplement open enrollment period begins the month you turn 65 and continues for another 6 months. During this 7 month period, you can purchase any Medicare Supplement plan or company that is sold in the state you live in. If you want to enroll after that time, you have to pass the health questions. Unfortunately, some applicants can’t pass medical underwriting and don’t qualify.
If you’ve been covered by an employer or union plan you can purchase an Accendo Medicare Supplement without answering any health questions. If you didn’t enroll if the first 7 months, you’ll qualify for “Guaranteed Issue”. Guarantee Issue is similar to Open Enrollment, but you may not be able to purchase any plan offered. You can always choose to be medically underwritten and answer the health questions if the plan you want isn’t offered on a guaranteed basis. Talk to our independent agents to help you make the best choice.
Accendo Medicare Supplement Plan Choices
Covers the basics of Medicare including the Part A coinsurance for a hospital stay, but not the skilled nursing coinsurance after day 20. It also pays the Medicare Part B 20% coinsurance but won’t cover the Part B deductible, foreign travel or Part B Excess Charges.
Plan A is a popular plan for people under 65. Some people are eligible for Medicare because they have ESRD or they’ve been receiving Social Security Disability for at least 2 years.
Provides coverage for everything that Plan A pays for, plus the Part A deductible.
This is the highest level of coverage available, but the premium may be higher than the other plans too. You can’t buy Plan F if you didn’t have Medicare prior to January 1, 2020. It doesn’t matter what plan you have now. Anyone who had Medicare before the cutoff can purchase plan F.
The Accendo Medicare Supplement Plan G is one of the most popular plans. It’s the most comprehensive plan for anyone to enrolled in Medicare after January of 2020. It includes coverage for all the gaps in Medicare and has everything that Plan F covers, except the annual Part B deductible. The G plan includes the Medicare parts A deductible, coinsurance for A and B, Part B Excess Charges and foreign travel at 80%.
Plan N pays for the hospital, skilled nursing and hospice and coinsurance and copays. You can be billed for up to a $20 copay for an office visit. If you go to an emergency room and don’t get admitted, the hospital will charge you a $50 copay. The most important thing about plan N is to be aware that it doesn’t cover any Excess Charges under your Medicare Part B. These charges can be as high a 15% and have no limit.
If you get medical care in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island or Vermont, you can’t be charged the 15%. If you get your medical care in any other state, it’s a good idea to ask your doctor’s office if they charge the Medicare Part B excess before you commit to a Plan N.
One time policy fee
They charge a $25.00 policy fee with your first premium. The fee will be refunded along with the premium if you’re declined, or you decide not to accept the policy during the 30 day Free Look Period.
Accendo is a new Medicare Supplement and there isn’t enough history yet to try and predict future rate increases other than an age increase. There are two types of rate increases, the first is an age increase.
Age increases are predictable and scheduled for each time you have a birthday. Claims (or inflation) increases are unknown and cannot be estimated. Claims increases are calculated after the insurance company compares the amount of premiums collected to the amount of claims.
Rate increases vary in different parts of the country.
