Improvements in Medicare in Iowa 2017

Medicare continues to grow, while offering seniors and people with disabilities stable premiums and improved quality of care. Whether through Original Medicare (Parts A and B), Medicare Advantage, or the prescription drug benefit (Part D), 585,047 beneficiaries in Iowa continue to have access to improved benefits thanks to the Affordable Care Act, including:

Certain preventive benefits including certain cancer screenings are available at no cost to beneficiaries when provided by qualified and participating health professionals. The annual wellness visit provides beneficiaries with the opportunity to sit down with their doctor to discuss their health care needs and the best ways to stay healthy.

In 2017, if beneficiaries reach the coverage gap known as the donut hole in Medicare's prescription drug benefit, they'll save 60 percent on covered brand name drugs and see increased savings on generic drugs.

In Iowa in 2017:

95 percent of people with Medicare have access to a Medicare Advantage plan

27 Medicare Advantage plans are available

22 Medicare Prescription Drug Plans are available

78 percent of people with Part D have access to a plan with a lower premium than what they paid in 2016

22 percent of people with Medicare Part D get Extra Help (also called the low-income subsidy, or LIS)

$17.00 is the lowest monthly premium for a prescription drug plan

In 2016, 234,003 people in Iowa with Original Medicare took advantage of at least one preventive service without cost-sharing through July 2016. 38,670 people in Iowa with Original Medicare took advantage of the annual wellness visit in 2016 through July.
