Share of Cost, Watch Out for Romance Scams

Monday, Feb. 4th 2019 5:58 AM

With Valentine’s Day upon us, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) reminds elders to be aware of romance scams and to “guard your wallet as well as your heart.” Below is an article from the CFPB on what to watch out for and how to protect yourself from such scams.

If you or your friends and family members are looking for romance, make sure to be choosy about that next sweetheart because anyone can become a victim of a romance scam . Perhaps your friend meets someone new and they both seem smitten quickly. After a few weeks, the new darling asks your friend to loan them money or wants control over your friend’s bank account. And that’s when you realize that your friend has fallen for a scam instead of a new love. These scams happen when a new love pretends to be interested in you as a way to get your money. In fact, they may not even be who they say they are.

Thursday, Oct. 25th 2018 6:00 AM

Psychological stress is a well-known risk factor for illness, but how exactly does it make us sick? A new study has provided some interesting insight.

Share of Cost, Do You Know People Who May Be Eligible for Part D’s Extra Help?

Tuesday, Oct. 23rd 2018 6:17 AM

Do you know people who are struggling to pay their Medicare Part D prescription drug costs? If so, they may qualify for help through Medicare’s Part D low-income subsidy (LIS), also known as Extra Help. For those who qualify, the Extra Help can save them thousands of dollars a year by helping cover the cost of their Part D plan premium, deductible and drug copayments. Despite how good these benefits are, many people who qualify are unaware of this program. Please help us reach those not yet enrolled by passing on the word on the Extra Help program and encouraging people to apply. (Note: the Medicare Savings Programs (MSPs) can also help cover some of Medicare’s costs for those who qualify, and save beneficiaries thousands of dollars a year.)

Share of Cost, hat State or Federal laws, regulations, or policies or restrict competition and choice in healthcare markets

Sunday, Oct. 21st 2018 6:16 AM

What State or Federal laws, regulations, or policies (including Medicare, Medicaid, and other sources of payment) reduce or restrict competition and choice in healthcare markets?

Medicare can be confusing or even overwhelming, especially when a person has chronic illness, limited resources, or a lack of help. Choosing among traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage (MA), Medicare Part D, and supplemental or “Medigap” options can make it almost paralyzingly complex. We rely on people with Medicare to make informed, savvy choices—in other words, to “vote with their feet”—so that competition can reward plan innovations that work, identify bad actors and problematic behaviors, and reduce both beneficiary and program costs. Yet, studies show that older adults struggle to compare plans1 and often do not change MA or Part D plans even when doing so may lead to lower premiums and reduced cost-sharing.2 To put it simply—people with Medicare are overwhelmed with information, but it may not be the information they need.

Friday, Oct. 19th 2018 6:07 AM

You do not need to show that you actually paid the medical expenses to meet your spend-down. You just have to show proof that you incurred the expenses. States vary in what kind of expenses are allowed, but all states give credit for Medicare and other health insurance premiums.
