A couple things to be aware of …
First … if you live in Los Angeles, so you can take advantage of the “California Birthday-Rule” each year on the month of your birthday, if you are enrolled in a Medicare Supplement plan.
The Birthday-Rule allows you to change your company every year guaranteed, regardless of current or previous health issues. It’s a great rule!! So don’t feel like you will be trapped into a Medicare Supplement plan or company long term.
Second … look at the premiums for the Los Angeles area. You don’t want to be paying more than you should. With a Medicare Supplement, you won’t know the difference when you go to a doctor or hospital whether you have an Anthem card in your card, a Mutual of Omaha card, or any other company card.
There will be differences with each company regarding how well they perform with their administration. Is there a long hold time when calling member services dept? Is the company quick to make changes with billing or address changes? How is their customer service? Is the company easy or difficult to work with. These are the many aspects of administration you need to be aware of.
Financial rating … of a company doesn’t have the level of importance today as it did in the past. Remember Executive Life in the early ninety’s, or how about AIG which in 2008 had a A+ Superior rating right before the state stepped in for their bailout. If a company becomes insolvent, you have a “guaranteed-transfer” option to move to a company of your choice.
Open Enrollment … The “Annual Open Enrollment” season is; October 15 thru December 7th of each year. If you are a current Medicare Advantage member or are looking into enrolling, be sure to compare the different plans available in your county. Each year the current plans change a little and new plans are introduced. If you need a little help sorting through the different plan outlines, please feel free to call anytime, I’ll be happy to help.
Enrolling is Easy … I can help explain which plan will be best for your situation. I’ll help you with enrollment and will make sure your effective date is on time and the date you request.
