Nevada Medicare Plans
Nevada has numerous options and combinations to meet your Medicare needs. Original Medicare can often leave behind thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses. Many beneficiaries choose to enroll in a Supplement, Part D plan or Advantage plan to help limit those out-of-pocket expenses. Choosing to do so gives you hundreds of options in coverage.
Nevada Medicare plans open enrollment
At 65 you are eligible to enroll in Medicare. You have a six month window to enroll. This enrollment period begins 3 months prior to your birthday and continues for the three months following your birthday. This enrollment period is also the best time to enroll in a Supplement as you cannot be denied coverage based on your current health conditions.
While you are able to enroll in a Supplement at any time during the year, you will be required to complete a health survey and can be denied coverage based on your health.
The Medicare plans in Nevada are best when combined with a Supplement. Original Medicare leaves behind coinsurance and deductible costs. You may have additional costs as Original Medicare only covers about 80% of outpatient costs.
A Supplement can put a cap on out-of-pocket spending. Another benefit is you can see any doctor that accepts Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Part D
The 26 Part D plans are great options if you need prescription drug coverage. In Nevada, and all states, Original Medicare and Supplements do not cover costs at the pharmacy. Many beneficiaries choose to enroll in a Part D plan or an Advantage plan to help lower the out-of-pocket expenses for prescription drugs.
