Since there are many different ways that you can structure a retiree plan we wanted to discuss several concepts that have been used to establish retiree plans with very minimal (if any) costs to establish.

Critical Illness Insurance

These policies will typically pay benefits in a lump sum; however, there are insurance companies that pay for specific procedures associated with a critical illness.

Group Health Insurance for Retirees

Have you heard of group health insurance for retirees? Have you wondered if your employer offers it or why they don't offer it? Group Health Insurance for Retirees is simply a health insurance plan setup for those who are over the age of 65 and retired from a company. These plans can also be formed for an association and that association allows members to enroll in the Guaranteed Issue Supplemental Medicare Plan! Check out the Benefits Association website if you are looking for this type of plan.

High Deductible Plan F

If you are in the market for a Medicare Supplement with lower premiums, you should consider the high deductible Plan F or the Plan N Medicare Supplement. Both of these plans allow you to go to any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, they both limit your out of pocket maximum, and they are standardized plans that are regulated both federally and on a state level.

Group Retiree Medical Plan

Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement

Looking for a Mutual of Omaha Medicare Supplement? If so you have come to the right place!

Plan C Medicare Supplement Insurance

In most of our articles we recommend the Plan F or Plan G Medigap policies. However, in the state of Pennsylvania we recommend the Plan C Medicare Supplement since "Excess Charges" are not allowed. This particular Medicare Supplement policy provides similar coverage to the Plan F but it does not cover excess charges. Since the state of Pennsylvania does not allow hospitals/physicians to bill excess charges this is unnecessary coverage.

Drug Supply - Prescription Drug Plans

Recently we had a client call us to let us know that the co-pay originally quoted with the Humana Part D plan was twice as high as originally projected. A little surprised and hoping we did not mess up when researching the drug supply, I asked him for the name of the prescription and the drug dosage.
