Medicare For Financial Planners: Medigaps - Peach New Media - Online Events by Peach New Media

Medicare for Financial Planners is a 10-module program designed for planners wanting in-depth knowledge of the rules and regulations regarding Medicare to help clients navigate the Medicare maze. While planners can choose to complete the entire program, there is no specific sequence and each course module can be taken individually on its own.

This course focuses on Medigaps, also known as supplemental insurance plans or policies, which work with Original Medicare and pay some or all of the costs that Medicare does not cover, such as deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments. You will learn about the 10 different standardized Medigap policies, labeled A through N, and explore how different lettered plans may offer different levels of coverage, but all plans under the same letter—regardless of the insurer issuing them—must offer the same level of coverage. You’ll see how premium costs can vary widely from insurer to insurer, depending on if the plan uses community-rated, attained-age-rated, or issue-age-rated pricing. Finally, you will find out when an individual can purchase a Medigap and learn about the guaranteed issue right.
