Medicare can be complicated, and we know you might have questions. We've created this Frequently Asked Questions page so you can find the answers you need, when you need them. Still have questions? Contact us; we're happy to help.
There are many different plans available other than Original Medicare. An RMHP Medicare Salesperson will be happy to help you find the plan that best fits your Colorado lifestyle.
When choosing a Medicare plan, it's important to first understand the basics. Once you know the types of coverage available, consider your budget. Can you afford a monthly premium, and if so, how much? What prescription drugs do you take? How often do you see the doctor? The answers to these questions will help you narrow down your choices.
Some of your selection comes down to personal preference. Some people prefer to pay a higher monthly premium and have a lower deductible. Others feel comfortable knowing they have an out-of-pocket max in place (i.e., the most you will pay for healthcare in a single year).
If you’re not sure what’s right for you, call us; we're here and are glad to help.
No, it is not a requirement. However, if you decide to decline enrollment in a Medicare Part D drug plan when you are first eligible, you may pay a penalty if you choose to enroll at a later date. RMHP will no longer offer Medicare Part D plans in 2018. Instead, we invite our Medicare members to explore Part D coverage from UnitedHealthcare.
