Helping Seniors Make Better-Informed Medicare Decisions

Trying to pick a health insurance plan can be a chore for anyone. For many people, just mentioning the word "open enrollment" sends shivers down the spine. It seems like there's always a nagging feeling that you're wasting money, choosing a plan with poor in-network care, or both. One would think that health insurance gets easier as you approach retirement age, but the truth is that picking an initial Medicare coverage plan can be daunting.

Unfortunately, the confusing process of signing up for Medicare causes many seniors to forego healthcare coverage altogether. After all, Medicare enrollment can involve several federal agencies, including the Social Security Administration (or SSA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (or CMS).

At Senior Medicare Insurance Services, our passion is guiding seniors through the confusion of Medicare. That way, they can enjoy retirement with peace of mind knowing they are protected and ready for life after 65. We work with dozens of insurance companies, giving our clients the chance to choose a plan that best fits their lifestyle.

We choose to design our senior insurance plans with a focus on optimal benefits structure, lower costs, and personalized service. Some independent insurance agencies see their aging customers as nothing more than a financial transaction waiting to happen. In contrast, we treat each of our clients with respect and dignity as we help them navigate the confusing waters of Medicare. Combined with individualized service, we help older Americans make well-informed decisions about insurance. Whether you're in need of senior Medicare Supplement Plan insurance in Greenwood or simply have questions about signing up for Medicare, our team is here to help.

Guiding You Through The Confusion of Medicare!

Request a Consultation

What is Medicare?

If you're approaching the golden years of your life, it's important you understand what Medicare is if you don't already.

Medicare is a federal health insurance program reserved for people older than 65 who have worked full-time for at least ten years. The Medicare program is paid for by a combination of worker payroll tax, premiums paid by Medicare enrollees, and the U.S. government.

There are four parts of Medicare:

 Senior Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance Greenwood, SC

This type of Medicare is free for most U.S. citizens. Medicare Part A helps older adults pay for care in a nursing facility, hospital visits, and some forms of in-home senior care.

This tier costs around $100 per month. It covers different outpatient services like lab tests, preventative care, doctor's visits, mental health care, clinical trials, and some forms of surgery.

This type of Medicare is most often called Medicare Advantage. This tier of Medicare allows seniors to choose health plans provided by insurance companies like Senior Medicare Insurance Services. Individuals who use Medicare Advantage commonly use Medicare supplement plan insurance to help pay for health care costs that Original Medicare won't cover, like coinsurance, deductibles, and copayments.

Sometimes called "PDPs," these plans add drug coverage to standard Medicare, some Medicare Private Fee-for-Service Plans (PFFS), some Medicare Cost Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans (MSA).

The amount of money you pay for your health care depends on several factors, including:

At Senior Medicare Insurance Services, we offer a number of health insurance solutions for seniors. Two of our most used services include Medicare Advantage plan insurance and Medicare supplement plan insurance.

Senior Medicare Supplement Plan Insurance in Greenwood

Sometimes called Medigap, the purpose of Medicare Supplement Insurance is to help fill in "gaps" that might not be covered by Original Medicare. You can think of a Medigap policy as a supplement for your Original Medicare benefits.

Private companies like Senior Medicare Insurance Services sell this type of insurance right here in South Carolina. While Original Medicare will pay for much of the cost associated with health care services you need, it may not cover all of your expenses. Generally, Medigap policies do not cover costs stemming from eyeglasses, private-duty nurses, dental care, hearing aids, or long-term care.

Depending on the Medicare Supplement Plan that you choose, it may cover out-of-the-country medical services when you travel abroad. Assuming you have Original Medicare coverage, your policy will cover its share of Medicare-approved health care costs. Once your Original Medicare coverage reaches its limit, your Medigap policy will pay its share of the fees.

Our Medigap policies are drafted to meet your specific needs, and can help cover remaining health care costs such as:

Deductibles

Copayments

Coinsurance

Important Information About Senior Supplement Plan Insurance

To dispel some confusion, you should know that a Medigap policy is not the same as a Medicare Advantage Plan. The latter helps you receive Medicare benefits, while the former supplements the benefits you obtain through your Original Medicare plan. As you begin to explore Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans, keep the following important information in mind:

 Senior Medicare Plans Greenwood, SC

As you begin to explore Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans, keep the following important information in mind:

  • To qualify for a Medigap policy, you must first have Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B.
  • Payments on your Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan will be made to the private insurance company that you choose, like Senior Medicare Insurance Services. These payments are made every month and are paid in addition to the monthly payment you make for Medicare Part B.
  • If you are the holder of a Medicare Advantage Plan, it is illegal for an insurance company to sell you a senior Medicare Supplement Policy. If you plan on switching back to an Original Medicare plan, you may be able to purchase a Medigap policy.
  • If you have health problems as you age, your standardized Medigap policy is guaranteed to be renewable. So long as you pay your monthly premium, your insurance provider cannot cancel your policy.
  • Medigap policies only cover one person. If you have a spouse or family member that would like coverage, they must purchase a separate policy.
  • You may only buy a Senior Medicare Supplement Plan from an insurance agent that is licensed to sell them in your state. Senior Medicare Insurance Services has been licensed to sell Medigap policies in South Carolina for years. We have helped countless seniors get the Medicare coverage they need and continue to do so to this day.
  • In the past, Medigap policies were able to cover costs related to prescription drugs. As of January 1st, 2006, prescription drug coverage is not available on Medicare Supplement Plans. The best way to get coverage for your prescription drugs is to join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, often called Part D. Contact our office today to learn more about paying premiums on Medigap and Medicare plans.

For many people, the best time to buy senior Medicare Supplement Plan Insurance in Greenwood is during the 7 months Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This period starts the day you turn 65 years old, so long as you hold Medical Insurance (Medicare Part B). Generally, during the enrollment period, you get more policy choices and better pricing. Once the enrollment period is over, you may not be able to purchase a Medigap policy. Contact Senior Medicare Insurance Services today to determine if you qualify for a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan.

Senior Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance in Greenwood, SC

A Medicare Advantage Plan is a kind of Medicare health coverage designed to provide seniors with all their Part A and Part B Medicare benefits. Many Medicare Advantage Plans will often include coverage of the following:

 Medicare Plans Greenwood, SC

In addition, most Medicare Advantage Plans give seniors coverage for their prescription drug needs. When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan through Senior Medicare Insurance Services, your Medicare benefits are covered through your plan and will not be paid for by traditional Medicare.

How Medicare Advantage Plans Work

Sometimes called "MA Plans" or "Part C," Medicare Advantage Plans are considered an "all in one" solution to Original Medicare. Senior Medicare Advantage Plans are only offered by private companies that are approved, like Senior Medicare Insurance Services. Seniors who enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan are still on Medicare. However, these individuals enjoy bundled plans that give seniors the benefits of hospital insurance (Medicare Part A), medical insurance (Medicare Part B), and sometimes drug coverage (Part D).

Medicare Advantage Plans are very popular because they cover all Medicare services and make life a little easier for seniors who have trouble understanding the nuances of Medicare.

When you contact Senior Medicare Insurance Services to choose your Medicare Advantage Plan, ask your agent about Medicare prescription drug coverage. Unless you already have drug coverage (Part D), you should seriously consider Part D coverage to help reduce costs associated with prescription drugs. You may also want to consider a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan to help fill gaps in coverage that Original Medicare will not cover.

Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance Rules

Medicare works by paying a set amount of money to the companies that offer senior Medicare Advantage Plan insurance in Greenwood. That money is used to pay for the care services that you need. Because Medicare Advantage Plans are different, you should expect out-of-pocket costs to vary depending on the plan you choose.

Different plans have different rules for how you receive services, such as:

  • If you must go to facilities, suppliers, or doctors that belong to your Advantage Plan for non-urgent and non-emergency care.
  • Whether you must get a referral to see a specialized doctor
 Healthcare Greenwood, SC

Companies that offer Medicare Advantage Plans must follow strict rules, which are set by Medicare and can change every year.

Paying for Your Senior Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance

How much you pay for your Medicare Advantage Plan varies and depends on a few different factors. In most cases, if you need a kind of medical service, you will need to rely on the doctors and providers in your plan's service area and network to pay the lowest amounts. In some cases, if you choose to use a service outside of your plan's network of coverage, you may have to pay out-of-pocket.

We encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about Medicare Advantage Plans, how they work, what your options are, and how often you will have to pay out-of-pocket, if at all.

The latest on the investigation into the fights that cancelled the Greenwood jamboree on Friday

GREENWOOD, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office said 23 people were charged following the fights that broke out during the Greenwood High School jamboree on Friday, August 12.

On Thursday, deputies said the number of people charged rose to 23. According to deputies, they’re reviewing the footage from the department, the district and those who witnessed the fight.

The sheriff’s office also said the individuals received the following charges:

On Sunday, Greenwood District 50 announced that schools would operate on a normal schedule on Monday despite the fights. However, officials said there was more law enforcement and staff at each school for precautionary reasons. The district announced this plan in the following statement from Superintendent Dr. Steve Glenn.

“Greenwood School District 50 will operate on a normal schedule tomorrow, Monday, August 15th. Local law enforcement has questioned multiple individuals that were involved in the incident that occurred at Friday night’ s Greenwood High School Jamboree. At this time, there have been no threats made to any of our schools. Most of the individuals who were involved in Friday night’ s altercation have been identified and will be disciplined according to the law and School Board policy. This type of behavior will not be tolerated in our school district. Those who choose to disrupt our schools and functions happening on our campuses will be prosecuted to the fullest extent. As a precaution, we will have additional law enforcement and staff in our schools and around our campuses on Monday morning. Our job as educators is to teach our children. As always, we will continue to work with our school administration and law enforcement to provide a safe learning environment for our students and staff on a daily basis.”

This was the second statement that the district gave on the fights. On Saturday morning, Greenwood District 50 released the following regarding the incident at the jamboree.

“Last night, the Greenwood Jamboree was cancelled due to multiple juveniles fighting near the concession stand. The juveniles involved in the altercations were from numerous schools participating in the Jamboree. There were no gunshots fired during the incident. Law enforcement was on the scene and responded swiftly to resolve the altercations.

Multiple individuals sustained injuries during the incident and those with major injuries were transported by EMS to Self Regional. The incident is currently under investigation by law enforcement and individuals involved in the altercations were taken into custody. Individuals involved in this incident will be prosecuted and disciplined to the fullest extent of the law and School Board policy.

We take these matters very seriously and will work with law enforcement to make sure these incidents will not take place in the future. Please know that along with all of our standard safety protocols and procedures, we will be implementing other safety measures at future events. As always, our top priority is the safety of our students, staff, and community. We appreciate your support in helping to keep our students, staff and community safe.”

According to officials, law enforcement at the game responded to resolve the incident, but no shots were fired.

“We just had a few juveniles get into a fight we had several different fights in different areas,” said Greenwood County Sheriff Dennis Kelly, “people out at concession area not watching football games, don’t know what they were fighting about at this point, still doing investigating on that end.”

The Sheriff’s Office later shared a post asking for information about this incident.

The incident is under investigation by law enforcement.

Austin Lathren has seen run-down and dilapidated houses throughout the 19 years he's lived in Greenwood.

Now, as a junior at Lander University and the City of Greenwood's administrative intern, he was given the chance to pave the way for dealing with these blighted properties.

"From Day One since I got here for my internship, they said this is your task," he said.

The job was to take stock of the properties in city limits deemed unsafe for habitation, according to the International Property Maintenance Code. After that, city and code enforcement staff would help him draft a new process that would give the government more bite when clamping down on code violations.

"Let's identify properties that are actually problems," Lathren said. "We went ward to ward and really just identified what we saw as, according to the IPMC, as either unsafe or an imminent danger. Once we identified these properties, it's been full-go on how can we get these houses remediated."

Unsafe structures are properties that aren't safely habitable: They have no power running to them, or have open access points. The key, Lathren said, is they present some type of risk to anyone living on the premises.

A property that presents an "imminent danger" is at risk of collapsing or otherwise failing, structurally. Greenwood Building Official James Whittaker said the city often learns about these when they actually fail, such as when the roof collapses or an abandoned building catches fire.

The city has a backlog of about 110 such properties that are either unsafe or an imminent danger. The process of dealing with these issues can drag on for years.

Currently, the city gives two notices, each with a set grace period for the property owner to respond. After that, an owner can board up a property to buy additional time, and getting a building permit can buy them an additional year. Often, these steps get taken, but no work gets done on these buildings.

At most, an owner could drag this process out 850 days before the city is finally able to take action to demolish the building or otherwise remediate the issue.

Assistant City Manager Draper Carlile said the IPMC doesn't provide a timeline for this process.

"It only requires that you give a reasonable time," he said. "We were looking at how long it was taking to get from sending out a notification, sending out another notification, trying to get through this process. It's taking two-and-a-half, three years to get through this process. Too long — or just not at all."

So a new process, recently presented to Greenwood City Council and approved in first reading, would shorten this timeline. If approved, the city will give just one notice to property owners, and the timeline will be cut down to a maximum of 455 days.

It also puts into law a structure for civil penalties and fines for people who don't respond to the city's notices. Whittaker said many of these 110 properties have been sitting on a list at the city for years, but owners can't be readily contacted or don't respond to communication by the city.

Fines will incentivize owners to sit down and work with the city to create a plan for fixing the property, Wilkie said. A new part of this ordinance is the voluntary remediation agreement, something Whittaker brought to Greenwood from his experience working in Anderson's buildings department.

The VRA would allow property owners to sign an agreement with the city that gives them flexibility in the remediation process but holds them to an agreed-upon timeline to act on the issues identified.

"I know our code enforcement officers have been frustrated the past years. They file all the paperwork and the process just stops," he said. "I want to work with them if a house is repairable, but placing one brick at a time is not repairing it in a timely manner."

"If we have buy-in from the property owner and they want to keep using it as a rental property, a voluntary remedy agreement is a vehicle to allow us to come to the terms necessary that they can get the time to fix up their property," Carlile said.

Out of the about 110 properties in this backlog, Whittaker said maybe one of them is currently legally occupied. But Wilkie said many of these abandoned structures house trespassers who are using these unsafe structures as shelter, which means getting rid of these potentially dangerous buildings can be a matter of public safety.

When a property is too far gone to repair, city officials won't issue the building permits needed to do that work. In cases when demolition appears to be the only option, City Manager Julie Wilkie said the city often puts a lien on the property when the owner isn't willing to demolish it themselves.

In order to avoid a lien, the city has opened up the possibility of donating these blighted properties to Greenwood. If city officials want the property as a potential site for re-development or neighborhood enrichment, they can accept the donation and demolish the property the previous owner left on it.

"If the city just sits back and waits for the private sector to decide what happens, then I think we end up with 110 blighted houses," Wilkie said. "Maybe the residential component of re-development hasn't been one that we've focused on in the past, and I think we have a unique opportunity to say let's get rid of some blight, and at the same time let's decide if we can go back in here with some infill housing and start to re-develop some neighborhoods and increase property values."

The federal American Rescue Plan Act has given Greenwood flexibility it didn't have before to tackle this issue, Wilkie said, and this one-time cash infusion can be used in part to help facilitate these long-overdue demolitions.

Adds significant clinical, translational science and immunology expertise to leadership team as Quell prepares to advance QEL-001 into its first clinical trial and progresses its CAR-Treg cell therapy pipeline programs in Auto-Immunity and Neuro-Inflammation

LONDON, Nov. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Quell Therapeutics Ltd ("Quell"), a world leader in developing engineered T-regulatory (Treg) cell therapies for serious medical conditions driven by the immune system, announces the appointment of Luke Devey, BMBCh, Ph.D. as Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Devey brings to Quell significant translational science and immunology expertise from Senior Executive roles at leading pharmaceutical companies, in addition to over 15 years of clinical experience.

Dr. Devey joins Quell from Janssen Immunology where he was Vice President and Head of Translational Science. In this role, he led integration of new translational approaches across Janssen's end-to-end immunology pipeline. Prior to Janssen, Dr. Devey held the position of Head of Early Discovery Biology, Immunology & Inflammation at Celgene, and Senior roles in Experimental Medicine at GSK.

Dr. Devey holds a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery (BMBCh) from the University of Oxford and gained his Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham, UK in the area of liver transplantation. He is a Visiting Professor of Immunology, Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford.

"I am delighted to welcome Luke to the team at Quell at a pivotal time for the organization," said Iain McGill, Chief Executive Officer of Quell Therapeutics. "His extensive drug development experience in immunology and his proven clinical development and translational science capabilities will be a significant asset as we advance QEL-001 into its first-in-human Phase 1/2 trial – the 'LIBERATE' trial – and progress our pipeline of novel Treg cell therapies through preclinical development."

Luke Devey added: "Quell Therapeutics is pioneering an exciting Treg cell therapy approach to treating diseases driven by immune dysregulation. The Company's application of cutting-edge technologies and translational approaches to inform and execute its development strategy resonates very strongly with me. In QEL-001, which is poised to enter its first clinical study, Quell has a potentially transformational Treg cell therapy to prevent organ rejection in liver transplant patients, which will constitute one of the most significant advances in the field for decades, and which will provide extensive translational data to refine the CAR-Treg platform for other indications. I am truly excited to play a part in driving this pioneering program and to contribute to the progression of Quell's Treg cell therapy pipeline."

About Quell Therapeutics

Quell Therapeutics is a world leader in developing engineered T-regulatory (Treg) cell therapies that aim to harness, direct and optimize their immune suppressive properties to address serious medical conditions driven by the immune system.

The Company is leveraging its pioneering phenotype lock technology, unique multi-modular platform and integrated manufacturing capabilities to design and develop a pipeline of highly engineered Treg cell therapies with greater potential for persistence, potency and stability than earlier generations of Treg cell therapy approaches.

Quell's lead candidate QEL-001 is being developed to induce operational tolerance following liver transplantation, with the potential to protect the post-transplant liver without the need for chronic immunosuppressive medications. Quell is also advancing additional programs in neuro-inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. www.quell-tx.com.
