Madison Regional Health System  Medicare Update

Madison Regional Health System has decided to end Medicare Advantage plan contracts. As contracts expire in 2024, Madison Regional Health System will not renew these contracts and will no longer be in-network for any Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage plans are offered by commercial insurance companies on behalf of Medicare and are different from the original Medicare program. Madison Regional Health System will still accept and be in-network for original Medicare (Part A and B) and supplement plans (Part F and G).


On September 15, Madison Regional Health System will host Senior Health Information and Insurance Education (SHIINE). SHIINE will give information on the original Medicare program, supplement plans, Medicare Advantage plans. There will also be time available for questions and answers. The free information sessions will be held at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM with limited space available. It is encouraged that you reserve your spot by calling 605-256-6551. 


Madison Regional Health System is not authorized to assist with Medicare enrollment decisions, and is encouraging individuals who are currently enrolled in Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans or decision-makers for those individuals to attend one of the information sessions. Medicare Advantage Plan participants will still be able to receive services from Madison Regional Health System, but will need to refer to their out-of-network benefits.
