Division of Insurance announces new Medicare Supplement Rate Lookup Tool available online

CARSON CITY, NV – The Nevada Division of Insurance is excited to announce the launch of its new Medicare Supplement Rate Lookup Tool available on its website at http://doi.nv.gov/Health_Insurance_Rates/Medicare_Supplement_Rates/

 Medicare Open Enrollment began October 15, 2016 ends on December 7, 2016. During this time, consumers on Medicare are able to change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage.

The Division encourages Medicare consumers to review their Medicare options because these coverage options and costs change annually. To help Medicare consumers compare their options, the Division created the Medicare Supplement Rate Lookup Tool.

The rates on this tool are for all ages and zip codes in Nevada. Once a consumer has input their information on the tool, the plans available based on this information will be displayed. While the rates displayed are sample rates, they are intended to give an idea of what a Medicare Supplement Insurance policy may cost based on the criteria input. The actual premium rate each company charges is based on a number of different factors including; age, location, the benefit plan selected, underwriting status, etc.  

To access this tool visit doi.nv.gov, click on the “Health Insurance Rates” tab on the homepage, then click on the “Medicare Supplement Rates” tab on the left hand side.

In addition to the Medicare Supplement Rate Lookup Tool, the Division also publishes a Medicare Supplement Guide online at http://doi.nv.gov/News-Notices/Publications/.
