Increase in Medicare

Did your Medicare cost go up this year?

Thanks,

Ron

Our Part B supplemental went up slightly. Our drug coverage with Aetna-Costco went up 88%! Needless to say, we're not with them for 2011.

Medicare did not go up, BUT the co-pays did. If you are hospitalized, at least in my case, the one time co-pay of a single $300 now changed to a daily co-pay. Seven days in the hospital cost me $1350 along with a bunch of other co-pays that I never had to pay before. Things that used to be given to surgical back patients without cost, like a walker, etc, all have co-pays now. I have not received every bill that was associated with the surgery yet, but the papers that said I have co-pay bills to come indicate that my share will be thousands of dollars more. Medicare along with an integrated HMO have raised all the patient's portion of the bills. If someone will be hospitalized for...say a month or more along with surgery and intensive care they could be charged enough to wipe out all their savings when they are retired. It all depends on the care that is needed. Things are changing. Joe

Medicare

We didn't get any increases but changed plans with AARP/United Health to AARP/United complete. We don't pay any premium for the supplement or RX but do pay co-pay if we use services. Savings $4,600.00 for 2011 less anything we might have to co-pay. We are in good health and hope to stay that way. With regular doctor appointments and drugs it should cost us about $600.00 for 2011 out of the $4,600.00 savings.

YUP - our Blue Cross supplement went up noticeably - while Medicare itself may stay the same for most, the RELATED costs are already going up as we were told they would. The next issue we will start hearing, is reduced coverage or services from medicare - especially for the retired and elderly.

NOW, for the BIG question - what cutbacks in coverage and services are going into effect for those like illegal aliens...

Yeah - that's what *I* figured too...

I have the original medicare and this is what medicare says on its downloaded Medicare & You document.
You pay:
$1,132 ■■deductible and no coinsurance for days 1–60 each benefit period
$283 per day for days 61–90 each benefit period ■■
$566 per “■■lifetime reserve day” after day 90 each benefit period
(up to 60 days over your lifetime)
All costs for each day after the lifetime reserve days ■■
Inpatient mental health care in a psychiatric hospital limited to
■■190 days in a lifetime
See “Medical and Other Services” on page 133 for what you pay for doctor services while you’re a hospital inpatient.

In 2007 it was $932 and it has gone up each year since. However, the monthly premium did not go up this year.

Hey Sarge,

I'm guessing (hoping) you are aware that your secondary is TFL and as such you should little or no healthcare bills???

Our Medicare did not go up but our plan D supplement went up from $8.80 to $30.30 each. Did not get any notice on an increase for part F and they have not billed me so far this month so don't know what is happening.

My mistake, I failed to read my Insurance's new plan for 2011

After calling the insurance company they informed me that I would only be getting back $75.00 instead of the $96.40 that I got back last year.

Also after looking further I found some more increases that I didn't expect.

My copay for doctor visits went from $0.00 to $10.00, all specialests visits went up $5.00.

I'm sure there are more changes, so I'll have to dig deeper but won't be able to change insurance until next November

Ron

And the government says we don't need a cost of living increase.
