Listen to Medicare EXPERT Melinda Caughill as she explained the basics of Medicare’s Open Enrollment Period — when it is, how it works and why it’s important, what caused Joe Namath to disappear from TV commercials (Thank Heavens!), the dramatic changes to the four payment stages of Medicare Part D coming in 2024 and 2025, why these changes make it absolutely critical that everyone with a Medicare Part D drug plan or a Medicare Advantage review their coverage options, why and how to use the medicare.gov Plan Finder tool to compare plans, how to determine which of your clients have the greatest need to review their coverage, plus much more!
Post-Webinar Notice from Speaker:
Tricare is the secondary payer to Medicare or the final payer if you have other health coverage.
Ultimately, people enrolled in Tricare for Life, can enroll in Medicare Advantage plans. However, Medicare Advantage plans will be the primary payer. This means, to get healthcare services, Tricare for Life members MUST follow the rules of the Medicare Advantage plans. They must get care from in-network providers and get prior authorization of healthcare services when required.
You will need to pay the Medicare Advantage plan for any required co-payments for services. The Medicare Advantage plan will not bill Tricare. You can then request reimbursement from your Tricare plan.
