The WellCare Advantage
WellCare’s advantage is that we focus exclusively on providing managed care services through government-sponsored programs, such as Medicaid and Medicare. WellCare offers a variety of health plans for families and children, as well as prescription drug plans for our approximate 3.5 million members as of March 2014. More importantly, they understand the special needs and challenges of their clients and know the communities they serve.
WellCare’s Mission To Serve
See why we are so passionate about serving our members and the communities in which they live:
WellCare has developed a full complement of expertise in the three major areas of government-sponsored health care…. Medicaid, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. Leveraging these for our members’ benefit is a key part of the value we bring to our members. WellCare has a focus on those members who are dually eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare. This is an area of specialization that many other health plans simply do not have. They are committed to continually improving the quality of care and service that we provide to our members. WellCare helps our members access the right care at the right time in the appropriate setting through coordinated care teams and community partnerships. And we’re focused on government customers and use a disciplined approach to ensuring a competitive cost structure.
WellCare (NYSE: WCG) is a FORTUNE 500 company based in Tampa, Florida. We employ more than 5,000 associates nationwide.
The Value of WellCare
Why join our health plan? Because with a Medicare Advantage plan f r om WellCare, you’ll get more from the Medicare you’ve worked so hard to pay into all these years. Whether you’re looking for…
- A Medicare Advantage plan with medical coverage only
- A Medicare Advantage plan that includes prescription drug coverage
- Or just a Prescription Drug Plan
…WellCare takes great pride in providing more value for your health care dollar.
And we have plans that deliver it in a variety of ways — plans that offer you great things like…
$0 or Low Monthly Plan Premiums
Whether you’re looking for a plan that doesn’t cost a penny more than Original Medicare or for a plan with great benefits and a lower monthly plan premium than a supplemental plan, WellCare has a variety of choices.
$0 or Low Co-payments
When it comes to primary care doctor visits, specialist visits, preferred generic drugs and hospital stays, your portion of the bill shouldn’t be a surprise. With WellCare, you can enjoy quality health care with predictable costs from co-pays at a fixed dollar amount, or sometimes with no co-pay at all.
Prescription Drug Coverage
We know the costs of prescription drugs can be very high. That’s why we’ve created plans that help make your prescription drug coverage more affordable. Most of our plans offer $0 deductible, plus $0 or low co-pays on preferred generic drugs. You can save even more using a preferred mail-service provider, such as WellCare’s Exactus Pharmacy Solutions'”L where you may pay $0 for three months of preferred generic medications.* You can also enjoy co-pay discounts by filling your prescriptions at one of our preferred retail pharmacies. WellCare has more than 60,000 network pharmacies, and you can use any of the pharmacies on our list. However, you may pay less if you use our preferred retail or mail service pharmacies.
A Limit on Your Out-of-Pocket Costs
Some Medicare plans do not limit the amount you may have t o pay for certain covered health care services each year. To help give you peace of mind, we offer maximum out-of-pocket (MOOP) limits on all plans. After this limit is reached, you will have 100% coverage and not have to pay any out-of-pocket costs for the remainder of the year for in-network covered services. You will have to continue to pay your premium if your plan has one. This means you’ll know exactly how much you’ll have to pay out-of-pocket — straightforward and no surprises.
Dental, Vision or Hearing Coverage
At WellCare, we know that looking out for your health includes making sure you have everything Original Medicare covers, plus sensible benefits like dental, vision or hearing coverage. Depending on the plans and benefits offered in your area, you could get dental cleanings, eyeglasses or even a hearing aid.
A Bigger Social Security Check
Your Medicare Part B premium is automatically deducted from your Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board benefit check each month. If this benefit is available in your area, you’ll get t o keep more of those hard-earned dollars in your check. It’s yet another way WellCare helps you get more from your Medicare.
