ManhattanLife Assurance Medicare Supplement

Protection from the Bills Medicare Doesn't Pay

Medicare was never meant to cover all of your doctor and hospital bills. Many people do not realize this and expect them to pay all. Reliance on Medicare in this situation can mean financial difficulty with out-of-pocket expenses.

Manhattan Life Offers 8 Standardized Insurance Plans

Manhattan Life insurance plans are designed to give you choices. Choices you need to help cover health care costs today! Our plans allow you to choose a Medicare Supplement to suit your life's situation, budget and needs. All plans may not be available in all states.

All Medicare Supplement Plans Offer These Benefits:

Part A Co-Insurance

pays if you are confined to a hospital. Should you require more than 60 continuous days hospitalization, your Medicare Supplement will pay the co-insurance amounts up to the 150th day of confinement and also for the first 3 pints of blood each year. Additionally, if you use your lifetime reserve days, your Medicare Supplement will provide coverage for up to an additional 365 days.

Part B Co-Insurance

pays the Medicare Part B coinsurance amount, reducing your out-of-pocket expenses when you require medical services. Plan N requires a copayment of up to $20 for an office visit, and up to $50 copayment for the emergency room.

Your Plan; The Facts

Medicare Supplements help pay some eligible expenses not paid for by Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. There may be charges above what Medicare and your Medicare Supplement pay.

Medicare Part A Eligible Expenses for Hospital/Skilled Nursing Facility Care include expenses for semiprivate room and board, general nursing, miscellaneous services and supplies.

Medicare Part B Eligible Expenses for Medical Services include expenses for physician's services, hospital outpatient services and supplies, physical and speech therapy, and ambulance service.

"Medicare Eligible Expenses" means expenses of the kinds covered by Medicare, to the extent recognized as reasonable and medically necessary by Medicare.

A Benefit Period begins the first full day you are hospitalized and ends when you have not been in a hospital or skilled nursing facility for 60 days in a row.

Coinsurance is the portion of the Medicare Eligible Expense you have to pay. It does not include Part A and B deductible amounts not paid by Medicare.

As Medicare deductibles and coinsurance increase, your Manhattan Life benefits will automatically increase. Manhattan Life benefits will not duplicate benefits paid by Medicare.

Benefits are paid to you or to your hospital or doctor.

You have 31 days from your renewal date to pay your premium. Your policy will stay in force during this 31 day grace period.

Your policy is guaranteed renewable. Your policy cannot be cancelled. It will be renewed as long as the premiums are paid on time.

You're covered immediately. There is no waiting period for pre-existing conditions. Benefits will be paid from the time your policy is in force.

Not connected with or endorsed by the United States government or the Federal Medicare program.

If, for any reason, you are not satisfied, you may return your policy to us within thirty days after receiving it. If returned, the policy will be void from its beginning and any premium paid will be refunded, less any claims paid.

Rates are based on your age and your premiums will increase automatically on each policy anniversary date, based on the age you attain. Premium rate adjustments may also be made based on current health care cost experience for benefits paid. Manhattan Life reserves the right to establish new premium rates for all insureds based on a class basis, but only after giving you advance notice. However, we will not increase premiums based on your own claims.

Manhattan Life Medicare Supplements will not pay for:

- Expenses incurred while the policy is not in force except as provided in the Extension of Benefits section;

- Hospital or Skilled Nursing Facility confinement incurred during a Medicare Part A Benefit Period that begins while the policy is not in force;

-That portion of any expense incurred which is paid for by Medicare;

- Services for non-Medicare Eligible Expenses unless specifically covered in the policy, including, but not limited to, routine exams, take-home drugs and eye refractions;

-Services for which a charge is not normally made in the absence of insurance; or

-Loss or expense that is payable under any other Medicare Supplement insurance policy or certificate.

If you lose (are no longer entitled to) benefits from Medicaid, this policy can be reinstated if you request reinstatement within 90 days of the loss of such benefits and pay the required premium.
