Who pays the cost of medicare supplement insurance?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that pays some of the health care expenses for people who are 65 or older. It will also pay for health care for people who are eligible because of a disability or qualifying health condition. You can buy Medicare supplement insurance to help pay some of your health care costs that Medicare won't pay. Because it helps cover some of the "gaps" in Medicare coverage, Medicare supplement insurance is often called Medigap insurance. There is also another option under Part C of Medicare called Medicare Advantage plans. You are required to pay the premiums for both types of insurance and there may also be deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance. These payments can range anywhere from $0 to $7,000 per year depending on the plan. However, if your income and assets are below a certain level, you might be eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid is a state-administrated federal program that pays for health coverage for people with low incomes. If you qualify for Medicaid, the state will pay your Medicare premiums and out-of-pocket costs. Medicaid will also pay for some services not covered by Medicare. In many cases, if you receive Medicaid, you do not need Medicare supplement insurance. To learn more about the costs of individual plans available in your area, I suggest you meet with a licensed health insurance agent if you have someone that you know and trust. Not all agents can enroll you in all plans so you may have to sit down with a couple different agents to learn about all the plans out there. Another alternative is to contact your local State Area Agency on Aging. They have counselors available who can help you and it does not cost anything to meet with them. You can find your nearest agency at the related link below.

Your daughter is employed but has no medical insurance and needs emergency medical care for a ovarian cyst how can she apply for Medicare or medicaid through social services?

Yes. Medicare/Medicaid is provided based on income and family size, not on employment status. However, consider this: If this is truly an emerency treatment, she would be covered under EMTALA (Emergency Medical Treatment And Labor Act) and be able to receive the emergency stabilizing treatment necessray regardless of ability to pay. Also, the hospital will actually help you to fill out the Medicare/Medicaid paperwork themselves to (1) be a service to you, and (2) to try to get any payment they can. They will work with you, usually, especially if you get to a county or not-too-private hospital. Make sure wherever you choose to go accepts Medicare/medicaid though, a lot of places have stopped accepting it because of how little it actually pays.
