The 2023 Medicare Open Enrollment period is quickly approaching: October 15 through December 7, with coverage changes taking effect January 1. During this time, an estimated one in six Californians with Medicare will search for a plan that better meets their needs, saves money or both.
Optimal patient access to Medicare is also a priority for hospitals. Health care professionals, from registration through discharge planning, want to ensure that all patients have access to care to meet their clinical needs, whether outpatient, inpatient, post-acute or long-term care. An organization’s clinical excellence relates, in part, to patients’ ability to obtain insurance coverage for the right care with preferred providers. The right plan also increases patient satisfaction and reduces bad debt by decreasing out-of-pocket costs for patients.
Well Advised, a HASC Endorsed Business Partner, offers free, unbiased and confidential Medicare information and resources to the patients that hospitals care for. The company’s plan finder and enrollment assistance service reviews all Medicare plans from insurance providers and matches eligible individuals with the best option based on their individual clinical needs, preferred physicians and hospital, and budget.
