Arkansas, Alabama, and Kentucky all have a higher percentage of Medicare recipients under the age of 65 than any other state in the union.

As of 2018, about 22% of Arkansas Medicare beneficiaries were enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans, compared to a national average of 34%. In Arkansas, however, the percentage of Medicare patients enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans had risen to 35% by the fall of 2021.

Medicare Options in Arkansas

Original Medicare

Medicare is the federal government’s long-standing health insurance program.There are two parts to the program, and you can enroll in either one or both.

Part A deals with hospital insurance. It aids in the financial burden of inpatient hospitalizations. Also included in this plan are hospice care, some in-home medical services, and short-term stays in a skilled nursing facility.

Medicare Supplement Plans or Medigap

Plan premiums for Medicare supplement insurance (Medigap) can cover all or some of the deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments under Original Medicare. The essential framework of every Medigap plan is the same. Some plans cover more cost-sharing than others, so you can have the freedom to select how much coverage you want.

Private insurers sell Medigap insurance, but the federal government standardizes them. Arkansas is one of eight states that don’t allow Medigap rates to change based on age, as long as the enrollee is 65 older.

Medicare supplement programs are labeled from A through N. While there are ten basic Medigap plans, the most popular are Plans F, G, and N.

Comparing Medicare Advantage Plans in Arkansas

Over 21% of the state’s residents are Medicare beneficiaries, compared to roughly 19% of the country’s population covered by Medicare. By late 2021, 651,967 Arkansas residents were enrolled in Medicare.

To make sure you enroll for the right plan, make sure you consider the following factors while weighing your options:

Provider Network

Many plans require you to see a doctor or hospital within the network to use your Medicare Advantage benefits. Otherwise, you have to cover those costs yourself. Before signing up for a health insurance plan, make sure your providers are in the network.

Amount of Coverage Required

Many Medicare Advantage plans include dental, vision, and hearing benefits that are not included in the original Medicare plans. When comparing insurance policies, keep a detailed checklist of the benefits you’re looking for.
