Here, then, is a Mutual of Omaha Medicare supplement review, including a sample look at the various plan options and estimated rates, at age 65:
A Chicago IL senior looking at this plan would find the following:
Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement Plan G :
A female would pay an approximate monthly premium of $122.92, while the monthly cost to a male for the same coverage would be $141.79.
$329 a day for hospital costs during the 61st through the 90th day of the stay. This would eliminate any out-of-pocket cost for the insured as Medicare Part A pays all but $329 per day. Part A also pays all of the first 60 days of a stay, after the deductible has been met. In 2017, the annual deductible is $1,316. As of the 91st day, Plan A would pick up the $658 daily cost that Medicare Part A would not pay. So in other words, you’re fully covered for hospitalization.
It would pick up the tab for the co-payment/co-insurance for Medicare Part A. This is important to know that during a very difficult time, you or your loved are covered.
Costs for a stay in a skilled nursing facility
The Mutual of Omaha Supplement Plan G Pays Part B Benefits:
- Part B Co-Payments/ Coinsurance including medical care such as doctor visits, surgeries, speech therapy, physical therapy, diagnostic testing, and durable medical equipment.
- Part B Excess charges
- Home health care
Medicare Supplement Plan F –
The most popular of the plans, the Mutual of Omaha Medicare supplement plan F differs from Plan G option in only one key feature. While Mutual of Omaha Medicare Plan G does not pay Medicare’s Part B annual deductible ($183 in 2017.) Plan F does pay the deductible. For Plan F, the approximate premium for a female is $143; for Plan G $122. A male would pay $165 and $142, respectively.
In addition to payment of deductibles for Parts A and B, Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement Plan F will pay:
100% of all hospitalization costs after Medicare Part A benefits have been exhausted
Skilled Nursing: Up to $164.50 per day for days 21 through 100 of a stay in a skilled nursing facility. This wipes out any cost to the insured, as Medicare pays all but $164.50 per day. Medicare also pays all of the first 20 days up to its approved cost limits.
Part B excess charges:
100%. When any health care facility or provider charges a fee in excess of what Medicare has deemed reasonable and customary for that service (and therefore declines to pay), this benefit picks up the tab for that difference.
Foreign Travel Emergency Care: After the insured pays the first $250 for the year, the plan will pay 80 percent of the remaining costs up to a lifetime limit of $50,000.
Part B Co-payments/Co-insurance including medical services such as doctor visits, lab work, surgeries, speech therapy, physical therapy, and durable medical equipment.
