DeanCare Select—Medigap Coverage from Dean

Dean’s managed care Medicare Supplement plan assists with gaps in Medicare Parts A and B health coverage and includes a network of providers.

What is a Medicare Select plan?

Medicare Select is a type of Medicare Supplement (Medigap). Medicare Select plans contract with a provider network of doctors, hospitals and specialists to help control the cost of medical care. Members receive the most coverage when receiving care from within the provider network.

How is DeanCare Select different from Original Medicare?

Original Medicare consists of Medicare Parts A and B and is the Medicare coverage most beneficiaries receive when they turn 65 years old.

Original Medicare has a deductible for Part A services, and a deductible and 20% coinsurance for Part B services that are considered medically necessary. Deductibles and remaining costs are the beneficiary’s responsibility.

These coverage gaps within Original Medicare may pose financial risk. As with other types of Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans, Dean Health Plan’s DeanCare Select allows you to keep the coverage that comes with Original Medicare, while supplementing the coverage gaps.

DeanCare Select covers:

  • Part A deductible
  • Part B deductible
  • 20% of covered Part B services

What extra benefits are covered in DeanCare Select?

DeanCare Select provides a foreign travel benefit that covers out-of-area coverage worldwide for all urgent care.

After a $250 deductible, DeanCare Select will cover 80% of expenses associated with the medical care received outside the United States during the first 60 days of the trip, up to a lifetime maximum of $50,000.

Does DeanCare Select cover my prescriptions or include Medicare Part D coverage?

DeanCare Select, like all other Supplement plans, does not include Part D prescription drug coverage. Part D coverage should be purchased separately to help cover prescription drug costs.

Eligibility & Enrollment

Timing

You can join DeanCare Select at any point after becoming Medicare eligible. Medicare guarantees issue of Medicare Supplement policies – including DeanCare Select – during the first six months of you turning 65, which is known as the Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). During your IEP, Dean Health Plan cannot consider your medical history or current health when setting your premium.

Coverage

Once your IEP ends, you may be refused coverage, your premium may increase based on your health or you may have a required waiting period before you can be covered for an illness you currently have.

DeanCare Select’s premiums increase with age, unlike Medicare Advantage premiums, which are a set monthly cost every coverage year, regardless of age.

You can switch your policy at any point but you may be charged a higher premium or refused coverage. DeanCare Select only covers care by providers in network.

Renewal

Dean Health Plan automatically renews DeanCare Select members of Wisconsin from one year to the next, as long as premium payments are on time.
