A) I’m sorry to hear that you have moved to Oklahoma and are having trouble with your Medicare premium. I have searched the web for some information that might help you.
According to the Oklahoma Human Services website people who are eligible for Medicare Part A and/or Part B may also qualify to have Medicaid pay their Medicare premiums, co-payments and deductibles as a Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB), a Qualified Disabled and Working Individual (QDWI) or a Specified Low Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB). People who have an income that is too high to be eligible for Medicaid may still be eligible to have their Medicare premiums paid as Qualifying Individuals (QI-1).
To apply for these programs, you need to contact your local OKDHS office or call (405) 521-3679. You can also use the Medicare Eligibility Tool to check your eligibility online.
If you are looking for a Medicare Advantage plan, which is a type of private health plan that offers Medicare benefits, you have several options in Oklahoma. The average monthly premium for a Medicare Advantage plan in Oklahoma is $14.42 in 2023. There are at least 10 plans in Oklahoma, offered by private companies approved by Medicare. Some of these plans have $0 monthly premiums.
To compare and enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you can visit the Medicare Plan Finder or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask me.
