Mutual of Omaha to Offer Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans


With Prescription Drug Plans, Mutual of Omaha Offers Full Suite of
Senior Health Solutions from Single Trusted Source

A leader in senior health solutions, Mutual of Omaha will offer Medicare
Part D prescription drug plans to seniors across the country, the
company announced.

Pending regulatory approval, Medicare Part D plans will be available in
49 states beginning with the 2019 plan year, said Brad Buechler,
Executive Vice President, Senior Health Solutions.

"As a customer-focused company that is a leading provider of Medicare
Supplement insurance, adding Medicare prescription drug plans responds
to our customers' interest in obtaining their senior health coverages
from a single trusted source," Buechler said. "With the addition of Part
D plans, we are able to offer a full suite of senior health solutions
including a range of Medicare supplement plans, supplemental dental and
vision coverage, and Medicare Advantage plans in select markets."

Approximately 85 percent of Medicare Supplement customers also purchase
a Part D prescription drug plan, he said.

Two Part D plans – the Mutual of Omaha Rx Value enhanced plan and the
Mutual of Omaha Rx Plus basic plan – will be introduced in conjunction
with the Medicare open enrollment period that begins on Oct. 15. They
are offered through a Mutual of Omaha affiliate company, Omaha Health
Insurance Company.

The plans will be available through the Mutual of Omaha Advisor Network,
independent brokers, website and direct sales channels, and the Plan Finder.

Medicare Part D works in conjunction with Medicare Part A (hospital) and
Part B (doctors and outpatient care) to help seniors meet their
prescription drug needs.
