AmeriHealth Medigap Plans
AmeriHealth Medicare offers Medicare Supplement Insurance (known as Medigap) designed to meet expenses not covered by Original Medicare. AmeriHealth offers several plan options that pay some or all of your Part B deductible and 20% or 100% of your Part B coinsurance amount. For inpatient stays covered under Medicare Part A, Medigap plans available from AmeriHealth pay either the Part A deductible or 100% of Part A charges and coinsurance amounts.
AmeriHealth Medicare Advantage Plans
AmeriHealth has a Medicare Advantage Plan (Medicare Part C) branded as AmeriHealth 65 Preferred that provides medical-only coverage or a medical and prescription drug benefit. These plans, which are based on a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) model, are designed to meet all of the health care needs of enrollees, providing the appropriate level of benefits needed for the an affordable amount.
AmeriHealth Prescription Drug Benefits and Plans
The introduction of the Prescription Drug Plan program by Congress in 2005 (Medicare Part D) has provided Medicare recipients with a valuable benefit for meeting their prescription drug costs. AmeriHealth offers a prescription drug benefit plan as part of its Medicare Advantage Plan. This combined benefit bundles important protection against the rising cost of health care into a single package in order for you to supplement your Original Medicare coverage. This option may be an appropriate solution for those who do not choose a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy.
