It's rare to get excited about health insurance.
In fact, the opposite is usually true.
Miraculously, that's the case for the medi medi market in California.
We have a plan that people are loving.
We'll jump into the pros of this plan as well as the medi medi world itself.
You can always jump right to a section here:
You can always request your quote here (Select Advantage Plans):
Medi medi is the short-hand term for having Medicare and Medi-cal at the same time.
Generally speaking, Medicare is based on either age (65 and over) or permanently disable status.
Medi-cal (Medical) is the California version of medicaid which is generally based on income and assets.
It's possible for people to be eligible for both at the same time.
Hence the term medi medi!
The two plans will generally coordinate benefits or out of pocket costs together for people who are eligible.
That's where Anthem medi medi plan comes into play.
More on that later.
How can people have both at the same time?
It's true...most people have Medicare or they have Medi-cal.
There is an overlap and 100's of thousands in California qualify!
We basically need to be eligible for both programs separately but at the same time.
Keep in mind that Medicare is a Federal program solely administered by the Federal government.
Medi-cal is the California administered arm of Medicaid, also a Federal program.
Medicare is generally the first step
Let's get right into the eligibility side of each one.
Let's look at each piece separately.
This is a quick overview. There's lots of detail but we want give you jumping off point.
First, you need to qualify based on assets.
They do not include the following:
If we pass the asset qualification, they then look at income.
This depends on a few factors but you can get more information here.
You'll notice that there are little break-outs from the core income qualification based on such things as disability.
Ultimately, you'll have to apply for medi-cal which you can do right through link or by contacting them directly.
If you're eligible for Medicare, you wouldn't apply for medi-cal through Covered California.
That's the Medi-cal piece.
We also need Medicare!
Medicare eligibility is generally triggered 1 of 2 ways:
Permanent disabled status is the SSI we mentioned above.
If you have this status, you should be able to get medi medi plans.
You can find more on enrolling for Medicare here.
Once you have Medicare and Medi-cal together, we can get to work on the medi medi health plans!
A few more quick questions we typically get.
This is a common question.
Medicare is a Federal program to provide health coverage to:
Medi-cal is California's version of Medicaid which provides coverage and assistance to:
They are two separate plans altogether but they can coordinate for certain individuals who qualify for both.
That's where the medi medi or dual eligible plans come into play.
Let's look at each piece in more detail before discussing the best medi medi plan to fill in holes.
Medicare is comprised of a few parts:
These are the big pieces.
There's are holes in the coverage.
We want to address those holes in coverage...especially the 80/20 piece.
This is an important gap in Medicare that needs to be addressed with a medi medi plan.
What about the other piece of medi medi? Medi-cal?
Medi-cal kicks in with assistance in two ways generally:
They point is that if you're eligible for medi-cal and Medicare, they will work together to reduce your out of pocket costs!
Let's look at the next piece towards medi medi plan coverage.
Medicare Advantage plans are the Medicare equivalent of HMO plans.
HMO plans require more management of care in terms of who you can see (doctors) and how care is administered.
That makes them very popular versus Medicare supplements.
You can find out more about Medicare supplements versus Advantage plans here.
