Maybe you’ve heard, but more than likely, you haven’t heard. The media has not covered it. Congress is voting this week to change Medicare Supplements dramatically.
Here is the skinny. Currently (2015), if someone has no medicare supplement or a supplement that doesn’t cover the Part B deductible, ie… Plan G, they pay $147.00 for the part b deductible. They are proposing to raise that across the board to $250.00, which means a Plan F would no longer be available.
If you don’t know, Plan F covers all the gaps in Medicare and is by far the most popular plan. This proposal would close plan F to new beneficiaries (the youngest and healthiest), making plan F rates go through the roof.
Plan G would become a top-rated plan at that point (it’s pretty popular with my clients, as I have shown them a way to save even after paying the Part B deductible).
Now before you start yelling at the republicans or the democrats, it isn’t one of the parties; they have both worked hard on fleecing the American Senior Citizen.
