Often times this component is over looked and costs members thousands of dollars more than it should have because the research wasn't completed and all options considered on a yearly basis.
Hospital Indemnity Plans
Hospital Indemnity plans might be the best kept secret in Medicare. These plans are offered by private insurance companies and meant to pay the member a fixed amount if they are: admitted to a hospital, visit the ER, take an ambulance, require durable medical equipment, diagnosed with cancer etc. All of the out of pocket co-pays a member may experience with a Medicare Advantage plan.
These plans can compliment a Medicare Advantage plan at minimal cost to the member and eliminate the worry of paying the max out of pocket if services are needed.
