Changes We’re Seeing for 2017
Like you, we have been worried about the changes to Medicare Advantage coverage since Obamacare has been put into action. As we thought, there have been some changes. Fortunately, they have not been as serious as we thought they might be.
The bad news is that many insurers are steering away from PPO plans. Instead, they are opting for HMO plans. These plans are cheaper for insurance companies, which allows them to stay in action despite all of the Affordable Care Act-related changes. It also allows them to keep rates low for you.
There are some annoyances related to HMOs, however. For example, you won’t be ale to see just any doctor anymore. Instead, you’ll have to select one from a network.
Also, no longer will you be able to call your specialist to schedule your own appointment. You could be on the hook for the costs if you don’t get a referral from your primary doctor first.
Overall, these annoyances won’t be so bad if you choose a good provider with an extensive network, but they will take some getting used to.
