Mutual of Omaha Plan N Savings

Mutual of Omaha’s communication from 11/5/20:

For your clients, Plan N is that well-worn, predictable path that gives them the protection they need with premiums they’ll love. For those looking to save, our Plan N rates are some of the best in the industry. It covers everything Plan G does except small copays and the rare excess charges, and its predictable out-of-pocket cost helps keep premiums low — especially thanks to our household discount.

Your secret weapon … household discount

For adults living together, our household discounts are like teriyaki beef jerky at 20,000 feet. Our 12% discount — available in most states — has some of the least restrictive eligibility requirements in the industry, so most people will qualify. See the application for each state’s specific requirements.

IMPORTANT CHANGES COMING: Mutual of Omaha 2021 PDP’S

 

Per Mutual of Omaha press release on September 8, 2020:

Coming Changes in PDP Plan Offerings for 2021

For the 2020 plan year, Mutual of Omaha Rx offers two Prescription Drug Plans – the Value and Plus plans. For
2021, we will continue to offer the Plus plan but will be ceasing the Value plan and introducing a new low premium
plan called Premier.

We are discontinuing the Value plan due to poor claims experience, which would have forced us to increase
premiums significantly in 2021. These premium changes would have made the Value plan uncompetitive.
