During the past few weeks we have heard an increasing number of Medicare beneficiaries telling us about Medicare agents trying to enroll them in “Medicare Select” plans.
A “Medicare Select” Medicare Supplement is one offered in many states in which the policyholder agrees to only use as little as one local hospital.
In this situation, the Medicare Supplement carrier offers a lower premium in return for this limitation on hospital choice.
You should never enroll in a Medicare Select plan and if you have enrolled in one you should change to a traditional Medicare Supplement that allows you to choose the hospital from which you receive care.
The reason for this is very simple. One of the two most important benefits to having regular Medicare combined with a Medicare Supplement is you can receive care from the health care provider you believe is best for your unique situation.
This means you can use such distinguished medical facilities as the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic, Sloan-Kettering and M.D. Anderson. To limit yourself to as little as one local hospital would severely restrict your ability to seek out the best care possible and in doing so give yourself the best chance for the best health outcome possible.
The other most important benefit to having regular Medicare with a Medicare Supplement is all or almost of your health care costs are covered by your monthly premiums so you will never have to pay an unexpected thousands of dollars in health care costs because you become sick.
