SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amerigroup is offering its $0 premium Medicare Advantage plans in two counties – King and Snohomish – for 2018. All of these plans are available for enrollment in this year’s Medicare annual election period (AEP).
The opportunity to enroll in a Medicare plan begins October 15 and continues through December 7. This is the one time each year when most people can pick or switch Medicare Advantage plans.
“Once again, we are privileged to offer consumers a variety of Medicare Advantage products, because we believe it’s important for consumers to have options as they look for the plan that fits their health care needs in 2018,” said Josh Martin, Medicare president of the company’s west region. “We put our experience to work to give members high-quality, affordable health care, allowing them to live the life they’ve earned.”
For 2018 insurance plans, individuals eligible for Medicare – people 65 years and older and those with certain disabilities – are able to enroll in Amerivantage Classic (HMO). Washingtonians who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid – also known as dual-eligible – have the option of enrolling in Amerigroup’s dual-eligible plan – Amerivantage Dual Coordination (HMO SNP).
“Amerigroup is one of the nation’s only insurers that can offer a full continuum of Medicare products, including something for every budget and lifestyle,” added Martin.
