Health Ins?

Hi, I am a full timer under the age of 65....I finally found what I am told is supplemental ins that will cover me all over the country. It has decent coverage for $150 month. I am wondering if any of you have this ins or heard of it??
I think it is an extended PPO type ins.

It is through Philadelphia American Health Value Gold Plan
Providers are in the PHCS network -
PHCS Network = The PHCS Health Directions is an extended network which also provides the lowest cost and is intended to provide health care coverage for members traveling outside their service area.

Thanks!

Please research where PCHS covers, including any favorite or potential camping areas. Also check if they have any overseas coverage if you want to cruise when things open up. Many plans only have no coverage at all, especially Medicare and supplement plans, for outside the USA.
I was lucky in that I had the choice of retaining my employee plan after retirement.

I should check mine. My insurance supplement is from my old employer also I pay 98 a month and that is extra because I took the vision and dental. I never checked for out of state coverage. Or out of US coverage. Thanks I look into that

I strongly suggest contacting an insurance broker. There are many out there that do that work for free and have access to many different companies. In some cases places like Costco have services available.



Making a wrong move with this can leave you SOL for coverage in someplace that does not have the care you need or leave you with a very large out of network payment if your insurance does not cover it.



And this is not the place to ask for this type of information and be assured that you are getting "expert" information. While there are very nice and informed people here would you ask about a major medical issue here and hope the advice did not kill you?

You did not say it was through an agent and you asked for advice and got it. You may not like it but it is advice.

Since 2013, I have been having to get my own insurance plan and the #1 thing I look for is if it has coverage in all 50 states, I could care less for out of country coverage. I always choose a PPO plan too.

Just called my secondary insurance and they said I'm covered in all states and any country affiliated with the United States. I asked about other countries, they said I'm covered if it's considered life threating. So if I have a cut finger in Poland I'll have to pay for that myself

I also have a PPO plan. Our employer offers several with the PPO being the most expensive option. However, we have used it all over the country without issue. Same copays and prescription drug costs no matter where we travel.

The last time I used it was at an urgent care in St. Augustine FL, we are from PA, and we were in and out just like we were at home.

Mine is through Highmark BCBS. They are big here in PA. But, I am not sure what presence they have outside of the state.

X2 on Blue Cross. I have Blue of Florida, prior had Blue in Illinois. I have had to use them in Denver while traveling and Canada due to a burn. No problems. They are recognized everywhere.

Aetna Medicare Value PPO Plan, nothing else the last 6 years. It’s an Advantage Plan, all inclusive.

went through this myself. Only travel 6-8 weeks a year. Medicare Supplemental will cover you any where in the country. It would cost twice as much as a Medicare advantage plan which you have to have a dedicated primary car doctor in network. I found Advantage would cover me for urgent care and emergencies, not Doctors other then my primary care. Medicare Advantage works for me. If I was full time I would go with supplemental. Talk to a Insurance broker. Make sure they are not dedicated to certain plan.

Also, Medicare Supplemental does not cover part D prescription. So in addition to to the cost of supplemental Part D is, I think $42.00. Advantage includes prescriptions.

Most Advantage Plans Cover, hospitalization, Dr. visits, Rx drugs, some vision, some hearing, some dental, Silver Sneakers fitness, but you have to pay the Original Medicare Part B premium, along with any premium for the Advantage Plan you chose. I like it, it’s all inclusive, no other supplement plan or drug plan.

However, you must see your assigned primary care doctor. If you are traveling full time they will not cover seeing another doctor out of plan.
