What are your Senior Health Insurance options?

Are you turning 65 or becoming eligible for Medicare soon? If so, you may be wondering about health insurance for seniors and the options available to you. There are a number of ways you can supplement Original Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans, also known as “MA Plans” or “Part C,” are offered by private, Medicare-approved companies. These plans include:

  • Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO)
  • Special Needs Plans (SNP)
  • Private Fee-for-Service Plans (PFFS)
  • Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans (MSA)
  • Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO)

By enrolling in a Medicare Advantage Plan, you ensure the Medicare services you receive are covered by your plan rather than by Original Medicare. Many of these plans offer coverage for prescription drugs. This type of plan is county-specific, so you have many different options depending on where you are located in California.

Prescription Drug Plans

A Medicare Prescription Drug Plan is a drug plan that provides coverage for prescription drugs to Original Medicare, assisting with prescription drugs, vaccines, biological products and some supplies not covered by Medicare Part A and Part B. Don’t take any prescriptions? You may still want to consider purchasing a Prescription Drug Plan for future prescription needs and to avoid a penalty from the government.

Senior Health Insurance Plans From Health for California

We know there are many options and carriers when choosing your Senior Health Insurance plan. We also know how confusing it can be. That’s why Health for California is here to help make it quick and easy for you to find the right Senior Health Insurance plan for your needs. The most popular types of health insurance plans are Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze:

  • Platinum 90 Plan: With a Platinum 90 Plan, you can receive coverage for emergencies, preventive care and regular physician visits without needing to pay a deductible. This is a great health insurance plan for families and individuals who want to spend less on out-of-pocket costs and have the budget for higher monthly payments.
  • Gold 80 Plan: This comprehensive health insurance plan ensures you can keep your out-of-pocket costs low if you need to visit the hospital or a specialist, and you can keep your monthly payment modest. With a lower deductible, you can save more money in the long term.
  • Silver 70 Plan: A Silver 70 Plan offers you average monthly payments for coverage of the basics and more. Note that if you visit the hospital or need outpatient surgery, you will likely spend more. If you work hard to make sure your health is always good, this may be the right plan for you.
  • Bronze 60 Plan: A Bronze 60 Plan offers the lowest monthly payments for coverage of preventive care and some checkups. You may have to pay more to visit a specialist. If you are young, have no dependents and don’t expect to visit the doctor much, this type of plan may be right for you.
