Your husband has medicare and a health plan from his employer which plan should be the primary plan?
Where I work, the employer plan would be secondary and medicare would be primary. It might depend on how the company has it set up but I can't imagine any company today wanting to be the primary insurer.

If you have an HMO Medicare Plan that you are not satisfied with can you go back to Medicare being the primary plan?
Yes. All you have to do is send in a cancellation letter or send it to your insurance agent and have them send to the HMO company. Once they receive it, they will then have me…dicare reinstated as your primary health care. Maybe get in contact with your agent and see about a medicare supplement policy. They will cover any gaps that medicare doesn't pay providing you can answer all their health questions yes.
Medicare is only secondary to your group coverage if you work for a company with 20 or more employees (could be a combination of part-time and full-time, based on total number… of hours per year) and you worked 20 weeks or more, in the current or preceding year. They do not have to be consecutive weeks. If you work less than 20 weeks or your employer employs less than 20 employees, or both, your medicare coverage is your primary insurance coverage. Primary status of group benefits takes place as soon as the employment and work week criteria are met. It will be primary for at least the rest of the current calendar year and all of the following year. Primary status for medicare takes place on January 1st of the following year after an employer employs less than 20 employees or you work less than 20 weeks in that year. Medicare remains primary until employment or work week criteria meet levels to make group benefits primary.
As long as the only reason you are covered by Medicare is because of a disability and you haven't reached the minimum age Medicare requires to become eligible naturally, then …the number of members in the group health plan will determine who is primary or secondary. Group plans with fewer than 100 members are considered to be "small" businesses and Medicare would be primary. Conversely, "large" businesses (more than 100 members) will be primary over Medicare. It doesn't matter whether the group plan is provided by you or your spouse. At the time you reach Medicare's required age to naturally become eligible with them, your case will be reviewed. At that point, the group size doesn't matter. If you have other coverage provided by you or your spouse, it will always be primary over Medicare. Medicare won't become primary until both you and your spouse have retired and are no longer covered by a group health plan. Medicare supplement plans are always secondary to Medicare, but then those aren't group health plans.

Employment/Personnel planning deals with determining the future qualitative and quantitative needs for personnel according to the organization's strategic and operational dem…ands. With qualitative needs is meant competence of the personnel as well as educational-, age- etc. structures. It is necessary to determine the natural attrition of the personnel in future years. The difference between supply and demand will indicate the future quantitative and qualitative need for personnel. This information has an effect on the recruitment and development planning of the personnel and on the measures taken. In a broader sense personnel planning encompasses the most personnel strategic and leadership duties, for instance delegating tasks and shifts as well as looking after the well being and competence of the personnel.

You should immediately get your ducks in a row. Rewrite your resume, contact other employers and get your suit cleaned. It would also be wise to cut your living expenses to th…e bare bone. Alternatively, talk to your employer and find out what you need to do to keep your job. If you have had several warnings that have been disregarded, then this is not an option. However, if it is just personality differences, give it a go.
What is the primary reason for employers to purchase insurance plans to provide health benefits to their employees?
To remain competitive with other employers for good employees.
Unless one anticipates becoming ineligible for Medicaid, there is no good reason for a person who has both Medicare A & B and Medicaid to keep a private insurance plan. Howeve…r, if you choose to do so, please do the taxpayers a favor and let your medical providers and your Medicaid caseworker know about the private plan, so that Medicaid will be billed only after the bill is "adjudicated" by Medicare and/or the private plan.
The birthday rule will decide who's plan is primary or secondary.
Yes. It depends on what is covered in your Medicare plan. There are supplemental insurance programs, like MediGap and other additional options provided either by Medicare itse…lf, or by your own choice of providers. This answer is correct for the most part, but you don't HAVE to have a supplement when you have Medicare. It is up to you. Most people wouldn't go without a supplement. These nifty little plans can cover your deductibles and coinsurances that Medicare leaves for the patient. If your claim is high dollar, you could find yourself in trouble trying to figure out how to pay your portion of the bill. Also, Medicare itself doesn't offer any supplemental insurance. You have to shop for yourself and decide which sounds like it would help you the most. Part D supplemental coverage is for prescriptions. Medicare does not cover any prescriptions. You have to figure which drugs you are presently taking and then find a supplement that will cover most of those drugs. If your prescriptions radically change over the year, you may want to shop for a new Part D supplement when it's the time of year to add, delete or change your supplements or even purchase a Medicare Replacement Plan. Many, many choices.
