How Does LIFE Work?
LIFE covers all Medicare- and Medicaid-covered care and services, and other services that the LIFE team of health care professionals decides are necessary to improve and maintain your health. This includes drugs, as well as any other medically necessary care, like doctor or health care provider visits, transportation, home care, hospital visits, and even nursing home stays when necessary.
If you have Medicaid, you won’t have to pay a monthly premium for the long-term care portion of the LIFE benefit. If you have Medicare but not Medicaid, you’ll be charged a monthly premium to cover the long-term care portion of the LIFE benefit and a premium for Medicare drug coverage (Part D). However, in LIFE, there’s never a deductible or copayment for any drug, service, or care approved by the LIFE team of health care professionals.
