An insurance guy works on commission. You work for yourself. einsurance shows this, for example for PriorityMedicare Key (HMO-POS) Out-of-Pocket Maximum $4200 for services you receive from in-network providers.
Out of pocket max. As stated above, and now by me, using Traditional Medicare and a Supplemental Plan, my out of pocket cost is the standard fee everybody pays for Medicare plus $185 month for the Supplemental Plan which pays my annual Medicre deductible and 100% of all Medicare approved services.
Let’s round that off, $200 x 12 = 2400 out of pocket and I then pay nothing.
Repeating, do your own homework. Study the coverages, exceptions, available in-network resources and the annual deductible plus copays. Look closely at the costs for specialists. Neurologists and hematologists and infusion centers are all likely specialists. Is the Infusion Center in-network?
