It is good news for Californian residents especially for those who are planning to enroll in Medigap Plans in California for 2021. Medigap in California comes with the unique birthday rule wherein residents get a chance to enroll in a Medigap plan on their birthday without having to answer any kind of health questions. The rule also gives 91 extra days to enroll in the most feasible plan as well as change their policy 30 days before or 60 days after their birthday. While there are different rules in play, one which is most important is that the Birthday Rule is applicable only to Medicare Supplement Plans in California and not to the Medicare Advantage Plans. Outside of this enrolment period, customers are always open to apply for any supplement plan with medical underwriting at the time of application.
Medigap plans for those under 65 are not available in all the states and those living in California might want to opt for Medicare Advantage Plan in order to escape the exorbitant amount that the carriers charge. While that remains the latest news from Medigap, the California Medicare Advantage Plan has launched in-home covid-19 vaccination programs which were rolled out during the last week of April 2021. EMTs and paramedics will now be visiting homes with senior citizens or citizens who are ill, frail, or are homebound due to medical reasons. This program is also known as the SCAN Health Plan conducted via MedArrive, and is a unique feature of the Medicare Advantage Plan. This is not the first time something of this sort has happened. Earlier in March 2021, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield along with the Public Health Department of New York City successfully vaccinated several seniors and those with mobility issues right at their residences.
For those who do not know about the proposed California Health Care Bill with new amendments, it is better to get acquainted with the same. This two-page new single-payer bill highlights the existing healthcare programs and also proposes the CalCare Program which would incorporate all benefits with a comprehensive single-payer health care coverage for all the residents of California. A recent rally held last month by a group of 30 people in Santa Barbara outside the County Courthouse, has gained much attention as the activists were seen highlighting issues such as the broken health care system where citizens are unable to afford and access health care that they need. While the community still awaits approval from the parliament, people are hopeful that this bill will solve most of their health care issues.
