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 medicare 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.

If you are covered under your husband's plan and he is working, his plan is primary to Medicare. If you are not covered under your husband's plan, Medicare is primary.

The answer depends on what type of Aetna Medicare Plan you have. If you have an Aetna Medicare Supplemental Plan, then Original Medicare pays first and the Aetna plan pays secondary If you have an Aetna Medicare Advantage HMO Plan, then the Aetna plan will always be primary as Medicare has assigned the benefits over to Aetna for processing and administration.

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.

No. If you have a deductible with your primary carrier, you will have to pay the deductible first before Medicare will pay anything.

Medicare is primary if your group is under 20 lives. 20 lives or more and medicare is secondary to your employer paid group plan.
