Medicare Coverage and LTC Insurance
Medicare is a federal health insurance program administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, for those who are 65 or older or certain people with disabilities. At DP Insurance Brokers, we are able to provide all parts of this coverage to the residents of Atlanta and surrounding areas throughout Georgia.
Why do I need Medicare?
Medicare can provide the necessary coverage for people age 65 and older, people under age 65 with certain disabilities, and people of all ages with kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant. This coverage ensures you will be covered for the costs of specific services you may need if you fit into this demographic.
Medicare Coverage Options
There are four different parts of Medicare that are important to understand. Our team of agents are able to sit down with each customer individually to determine what would best suit their needs.
We are able to provide the following parts of Medicare Coverage:
Medicare Part A
Part A covers inpatient hospital care (free for most American Citizens), stay in a nursing facility, hospice care, and some forms of home health services.
Medicare Part B
Part B covers certain doctor’s visits, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventative services. This year from October 15 to December 7 you will be able to change your plan if you are on a Medicare Advantage Plan. There are a few other special enrollment periods throughout the year so please call us to see if you are eligible.
Medicare Part C
This part gives us the ability to provide you with both Parts A and B, along with the Medicare Advantage Plan which includes the following:
- Health Maintenance Organizations
- Preferred Provider Organizations
- Private Fee-for-Service Plans
- Special Needs Plans
- Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans
Medicare Part D
Part D allows us to add prescription drug coverage to some other parts of Medicare coverage.
Personal and Financial Protection for the Long Term
For most Americans, a traditional Life and Health Insurance package is enough to keep themselves and their families insured, but for many, additional coverage is required. At D.P. Brokers Insurance, we offer extensive coverage options that can insure the care of those who need it most.
Long-Term Care Insurance (LTC) helps provide for the medical expenses of extended home health care or nursing home costs beyond a specified period. In general, individuals who require Long-Term Care are those who can no longer take care of themselves and are unable to perform the basic activities of daily living without assistance.
The costs of Long-Term Care can be quite expensive, and are typically not covered under basic Health Insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. Long-Term Care Insurance from D.P. Brokers Insurance can protect your family’s financial future by providing valuable coverage benefits for costs associated with:
- Home Care
- Assisted Living
- Adult Daycare
- Hospice Care
- Nursing Homes
- Respite Care
Individuals looking to purchase Long-Term Care Insurance must meet certain conditions in order to qualify for benefits. Talk to an insurance professional with D.P. Brokers Insurance to learn more about Long-Term Care Insurance and whether you should add it to your current policy.
