1-800-MEDIGAP toll free helpline is designed to help individuals looking for a Medicare Supplement on medicare Part A & B
Update from one of our top partners is probably not the first, but does give good indications of how the market is going to respond to the Medicare Changes scheduled for 2020.
|As part of the upcoming Medicare changes effective January 1, 2020, Medicare Supplement Plan C, F and HDF/F+ will ONLY be available to those turning 65 prior to January 1, 2020, or first eligible for Medicare Part A due to age or disability prior to January 1, 2020.|
|If a Medicare beneficiary was first eligible for Medicare Part A on or before January 1, 2020 due to disability, only the plans approved in the state of residence for under age-65 applicants will be available, therefore Plans C, F or HDF/F+ may not be available for under age-65 applicants regardless of the 2020 changes.|
|Medicare Supplement Plans C, F and HDF/F+ will NOT be available to those turning 65 on or after January 1, 2020 or first eligible for Medicare Part A on or after January 1, 2020.|
|Please note: Medicare Supplement applications will continue to display the C, F and HDF/F+ selections. If one of these plans is selected and the individual is not eligible, the individual will be declined. To help avoid this situation, we encourage our Agents to use our electronic application which will help our Agents with identifying which plans are available in their state of residence. The electronic application will provide an alert if a potential applicant may not qualify for a Plan C, F or HDF/F+.|
|We expect each state to approve a new Plan HDG/G+ for sales effective January 1, 2020. We will notify you as soon as new plan options and Medicare Supplement policy HDG/G+ is approved and available in your state and available.|
