Dr. Sabrina Scott acknowledges that her firm doesn’t offer insurance products, but her confusion in the face of marketing campaigns for $0 Premium Medicare Advantage plans motivated her in-depth research in hopes of clearing up confusion for her readers too.
DECATUR, GA, November 26, 2019: Dr. Sabrina Scott, co-founder of Red Feather Financial, has posted a new article on the firm’s website entitled “Confused By $0 Premium Medicare Advantage Plans” in which Dr. Scott admits to being confused by advertisements for seemingly ‘free’ Medicare plans.
Dr. Scott states, “I don’t know about you, but lately I’m feeling bombarded every time I turn on the TV and the computer by so called ‘free Medicare Advantage plans.’ They advertise no premium and no deductibles regardless of your income.” She goes on to say, “That sounds too good to be true, and you know what they say about that. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.” Dr. Scott acknowledges that, “Red Feather Financial does not specialize in health insurance products, so I truly was confused by what these plans appeared to offer. So, in order to clear up the confusion, I looked a little deeper into what $0 and no premium Medicare Advantage Plans actually are.”
“For starters,” says Dr. Scott, “all of the plans are offered by independent insurance companies that have been ‘approved’ by Medicare. So don’t be confused into thinking they are being offered directly by Medicare.” As she points out, “Medicare Advantage, is also known as Medicare Part C, which is one way through which Medicare beneficiaries can get their Medicare Part A and Part B benefits.”
“Now,” says Dr. Scott, “let’s define the word ‘free.’ According to the Merriam Webster dictionary the word ‘free’ means “not costing or charging anything.”” “Just to be fair,” she continues, “these plans are not saying they’re “free.” But it’s easy to think that they are when you see $0 premium.”
As Dr. Scott makes clear, “If you are looking into a $0 premium Medicare advantage plan keep in mind that the private insurance companies offering them are in business to make a profit. They have to make a profit from something. So you have to be a detective as you try to discover where the copayments and or coinsurance payments might be lurking.”
