Medigap Guaranteed Issue-Plan Termination

We recently received notification that a certain Medicare Advantage Carrier(units of Universal Health Care) had gone into receivership. Since Medicare Advantage plans are not Guaranteed Renewable, this means that the members in those plans no longer have coverage. The members were automatically switched back to Original Medicare. While this could cause a lot of disruption for those members, especially those currently undergoing treatment, there is a silver lining. The members will have a Special Election Period for 2 months, during which time they can choose another Medicare Advantage plan. More importantly, this also triggers a Guaranteed Issue opportunity to purchase Medicare Supplement. During this 2 month time period, you can’t be turned down for a Medigap Plan F (or A, B, C, K, or L), regardless of your health conditions. When we find someone in this situation, that doesn’t have a health condition that would require a Guaranteed Issue, we can usually save them the most money by applying for an underwritten Plan G Medicare Supplement. It is an important time, and a person in this situation really needs to know their rights, so they can make the best decision for their future coverage. If you or someone you know is in this or a similar situation please call 877-740-8683, or visit www.emedigap411.com , and speak to a licensed Insurance Agent.
