|Part D Benefit:||No|
|Rx Gap Coverage:|
HumanaChoice R4182-001 is a Preferred Provider Organization Medicare Advantage Plan, by Humana, available in Taylor County, TX. It gives you freedom to choose your doctors, specialists and hospital facilities. Plus, you can keep your out of pocket costs as low as possible when you use the Humana network. You get predictable copayments and coinsurance, making it easier to keep your healthcare costs in check.
This plan has a zero dollar premium!
If you enroll in the HumanaChoice R4182-001 plan you will continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium. However, there's no additional monthly premium to be in this plan. Be aware that some people pay a higher Part B premium due to their annual income level (over $85,000 per year for singles or $170,000 for married couples) or due to a late enrollment penalty.
In addition to the premiums you also pay your share when you use healthcare services. Each time you see your doctor, or if you are admitted as an inpatient (hospitalized), you'll pay copayments. Your prescription drugs also have a cost sharing component.
Maximum Out-of-Pocket Limit
All 2018 Medicare Advantage plans have a $6,700 maximum out-of-pocket (MOOP) limit. That said, Medicare allows for a voluntary MOOP as low as $3,400.This plan's MOOP is $5,400. This figure is not inclusive of your monthly premium or the cost of your prescriptions (Medicare Part D Coverage).
This means that you will no longer pay copayment or coinsurance as soon as your copayments and coinsurance for doctor visits and hospital care reaches $5,400. This is your guarantee that an illness or accident will send you into bankruptcy. Consider the MOOP along with the premium and the copay.
If you're comparing this plan with Original Medicare, don't forget that you pay about 20% of all covered expenses, but there's no limit. You have a lot of risk with Original Medicare unless you buy a Medicare Supplement to cover your copayments and coinsurances.
