Alert: Kaiser Medicare Advantage HMO Out of Pocket Maximum Raised to $6,700 in 2018

(Note: The below information concerns only those who are Medicare-Eligible.  It does not concern you if you are under-age 65, on an Individual & Family health plan, or on an Employer or Employee Group-sponsored or Government-sponsored health plan.  This information pertains only to California and may not apply to other states.)

It’s come to my attention that Kaiser Medicare Advantage HMO has raised its Annual Out of Pocket maximum to $6,700 starting on Jan. 1, 2018. This could be a financial burden for many seniors.

As an alternative, Medicare Supplement Plan F has $0 Out of Pocket costs for any Medicare-eligible medical expense (except for a separate Prescription Drug Plan), and allow access to any Medicare provider in the U.S.

For those turning 65 in Contra Costa, Anthem Blue Cross Medicare Supplement Plan F plan premiums can be as low as $115/month, after discounts. (This is compared to Kaiser Medicare Advantage’s monthly premium of $103/month, including Rx.)

If you have any questions, we’d be happy to consult with you on your options.
