• positive review  I am so thrilled to have this selection over with. The relief is beyond description. Joann listens and talks straight. And with me if I hear or feel something is off I will politely exit the conversation. My questions and feedback were truthfully answered and at no time did I get the feeling that I was being lead, pushed or a sales pitch was happening. It was great service. Thank you and thanks for listening.

  • 5 star review  I found Joann on YouTube while researching supplemental insurance. Her videos are so easy to understand Medigap. I have been in contact via email and phone. I highly recommend watching her videos. Thank you Joann for making it easy to navigate this new chapter in my life.

  • 5 star review  Best decision I made going through Remdigap. I must have watched 40-50 videos from several different carriers and they mostly seemed shady. One I spoke to Joanne and walked through options, receieved some quotes she took care of the rest with absolutely no pressure. Oh yeah, her videos are clear and concise.

  • 5 star review  My husband and I have been researching Medigap and Part D plans for months. Once we thought we knew what we were doing, we would find out we didn’t! Lol! If we would have started here, with Joann and REMEDIGAP, it would have been painless! So thankful we found her! Watch the videos, ask ANY question, and rest assured you’ll get a competitive rate and ZERO pressure. We got a super fast response which was helpful with my work schedule. Joann is genuine, easy to talk to, has a great sense of humor! What a Godsend. Feels like good old-fashioned customer service to me. Grateful.

  • 5 star review  I came across Remedigap by chance and after reading some of the reviews I knew I had to check them out. I am so glad I did!!! So glad I had to tell anyone who will listen…hence this review. I cannot thank Joann enough for answering my questions at the 11th hour! She has, hands down, provided me with the most consise straightforward answers to my questions. Without so much as a hint of pressure in one direction or a other, so refreshing…so very important in this day and age when healthcare coverage can be dauntingly confusing! I appreciate it so much!

  • 5 star review  Phoned them “cold” – based on a local area on aging recommendation and several comments penned by Ms. Quinn on websites. Unlike ALL other agencts, only Joann refrained from asking for my commitment to by a plan through them. At the same time, Joann put some searches into play and has promised to phone me once more with additonal input. It was I who offered to write this testimonial. Withouit purchasing a policy, it is the only way I know to express my gratitude for her professional conduct and genuine concern. Thank you, Joann! PS: You can take the teacher out of the school, but you can’t take the schoolteacher away. Your videos are very clearly laid-out: like a carefully constructed lesson

  • 5 star review  Highly recommend REMEDIGAP videos if you want to understand the Medicare/medigap maze. Joann was thorough in her responses to my questions and requests for rates. Undoubtedly, I will be contacting this company when it is time for me to purchase a medigap policy.

  • 5 star review  I left my Medicare Advantage HMO for a Medigap Plan N — I’m so happy I made the change. Joann was there to help me every step of the way and make the process so easy. What could have been an overwhelming situation ended up being completely stress free, thanks to Joann.

Medicare Part A

medicare part a

When you begin Original Medicare, you are enrolled into Medicare Part A automatically. Part A is one of the 3 parts of Medicare and is you hospital insurance. The following are the Top 6 benefits of Medicare Part A:

  1. Inpatient hospital care
  2. Long-term hospital care
  3. Inpatient rehab
  4. Home health care
  5. Skilled nursing facility care (SNL)
  6. Hospice care

Medicare Part A Eligibility

Not everyone is eligible for Medicare Part A. Your eligibility will be based on one of the following:

  • You must be age 65 or older
  • Eligible to receive Social Security
  • Eligible to receive Railroad Retirement Board Benefits

When can I enroll in Medicare Part A?

When someone receives benefits from Social Security, they are enrolled into Original Medicare automatically. You will not have to apply separately to get Part A. 3 months before you turn age 65, you should receive your Medicare card in the mail. If you qualify for Medicare due to disability, you should get your card on your 25th month of your disability.

What if I’m still working and don’t receive Social Security?

If you don’t receive Social Security benefits at age 65, you’ll have to sign up for your Medicare Part A by visiting the official Medicare website.

If you are not receiving Social Security income benefits (for example, if you are working) when you turn 65, then you will need to actively sign up for Medicare Part A. If you’re needing to apply for your Medicare Part A, you’ll have to visit the Social Security website or call them directly at 800-772-1213.

Medicare Part A Costs

Most people will not have a Medicare Part A premium if they’ve worked for 10 years or 40 quarters. If you have not worked for 40 quarters or 10 years, you can still pay for Part A. 

The reason that most people don’t have a Part A premium us that most people have been paying Medicare taxes throughout their working years. Your taxes were used make up for the costs of Part A when you start Medicare.

Having said that, Medicare will not start paying your hospital costs until you have paid your annual deductible.
