Amerigroup offers information on understanding Medicare, a federal health insurance program that helps pay for healthcare for individuals aged 65 and above or with certain disabilities or health conditions. Learning about the four parts of Medicare and government-sponsored Medicare savings programs can help individuals find coverage that meets their health needs and budget. Amerigroup also assists with applying for Medicare enrollment, including eligibility criteria and the enrollment process.
Those interested individuals in having medicare can take advantage of the Amerivantage Medicare Advantage plans from Amerigroup that offer benefits that Part A and Part B do not include. Their Medicare Advantage plans also feature additional benefits, such as no-cost fitness program memberships, personal home helpers, transportation to doctor visits, and more. A stand-alone Part D plan might suit them if they only need prescription drug coverage. They are free to compare Amerigroup’s Medicare Advantage plans, and Medicare Part D plans whenever they want. Amerigroup also offers Special Needs Plans, which are Medicare Advantage plans designed for people diagnosed with certain conditions or diseases or those with low incomes.
In addition, Amerigroup also offers Medicare Savings Program to someone who cannot afford medicare. The state might have resources to help. Individuals can be eligible depending on their income and other financial resources such as checking or savings accounts and stocks or bonds. Four savings programs for Medicare beneficiaries have other income and resource criteria. These programs are Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB), Specified Low-Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB), Qualifying Individual (QI), and Qualified Disabled and Working Individuals (QDWI). QMB has the lowest income limit and offers the most coverage, while QDWI has the highest income limit. If the income exceeds the limit, an individual may still qualify because income from work may not apply to the limits, which are higher for married couples.
