CMS adopted NAIC Medigap Modernization Model to comply
with MIPPA 2008. The major changes will be occurring in the Medigap/Medicare
Supplement market on June 1st, 2010
These changes include:
- eliminating some benefits (At Home Recovery
- eliminating some plans (E, H, I, J, K, L and
High Deductible J),
- increasing Part B excess
- introducing 2 new plans
If you already have one of the plans being eliminated, this will not affect you.
These changes only apply to new Medigap/Medicare Supplement enrollees. It is
very important that you know your options and how the new changes will or will
not affect you. The reason some of the plans will be eliminated is because when
CMS eliminated the At Home Recovery benefit, it caused some of the plans to be
identical. Aside from the eliminated benefits, there is not a difference in the
plans being eliminated and the current plans that will not be changed.
