I was just on the Medicare.gov website comparing Medicare Advantage plans in Tucson side-by-side and I saw some big mistakes in the information. One plan’s co-pay for a skilled nursing facility is listed as $195 per day – and that is wrong. Another has a $225 charge for home health services – and that is wrong.
Last week I was checking Part D plans on Medicare.gov, and it looked like there were problems with some of the co-pay or co-insurance details.
Many of the co-pays in the Plan Finder seem to be correct, but then I came across incorrect information. So it really looks like I can’t use Medicare.gov right now – and it is the only way a broker can show plans side-by-side.
I have a number of clients who need to, or want to, compare their current Medicare Advantage plan to other plans, so I was going to print out information provided by the Medicare.gov Plan Finder. I am stuck now because I can’t count on Medicare.gov info until people at CMS get back to work and fix the Plan Finder.
Until the government shutdown ends and people are back to work, the Plan Finder will not be updated. It says it right on the Medicare.gov website.
