Recently married do you have to notify medicare to continue medicare insurance?

One has to notify Medicare when one gets married, but I am not sure if it is to continue coverage or add your partner to your benefits, or get your partners income level added to yours as income coming in. One has to notify Medicare if you sneeze!! Medicare plans are written on individuals. If your spouse needs Medicare, your spouse would first qualify on their own and then be on their own plan by themselves, not added to your plan. Your income does not effect your eligibility for Medicare, it only effects the premium that you pay for Medicare Part B. If you need to know whether or not your spouse qualifies for Medicare, this is taken directly from the Medicare and You 2009 book pertaining to qualifying for Medicare: Medicare is health insurance for people age 65 or older, under age 65 with certain disabilities, and any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant).

Does medicare cover a person traveling in a different country?

No. Only in one very limited case will Medicare pay if you're traveling in another country. If you're traveling through Canada without unreasonable delay by the most direct route between Alaska and another U.S. state when a medical emergency occurs, and the Canadian hospital is closer than the nearest U.S. hospital will Medicare cover the treatment of your illness or injury while traveling. Medicare determines what qualifies as "without unreasonable delay" on a case-by-case basis.

How much does Medicare pay a Medicare advantage plan per person?

i sell medicare advantage plans, and ive heard it is somewhere around $800/month. that plus the medicare part b premium ($96.40) however im not sure. Yes, the government does pay the carriers around $800 per person, but this amount increases if a senior qualifies for a chronic condition, such as high blood pressure and the a chronic plan is available in the seniors area. The plans receive even more money per person if the senior is on Medicaid, around $1200 per person.
