    A non-preferred generic drug is identified as which tier level in most plans?

    • A.

      Tier 1

    • B.

      Tier 2

    • C.

      Tier 3

    • D.

      Tier 4

    Correct Answer
    B. Tier 2
    Explanation
    A non-preferred generic drug is identified as Tier 2 in most plans. This means that it is not the first choice for a generic drug and may have a slightly higher copayment or coinsurance compared to Tier 1 drugs, which are the preferred generics. Tier 3 and Tier 4 drugs are typically brand-name drugs or specialty drugs, which are usually more expensive and have higher copayments or coinsurance.

    What is the correct way to turn off your computer at the end of the shift?

    • A.

      Lock the computer

    • B.

      Restart and lock the computer

    • C.

      Log off

    • D.

      Unplug the computer and monitor

    Correct Answer
    C. Log off
    Explanation
    Logging off is the correct way to turn off your computer at the end of the shift. When you log off, you are closing all your open applications and ending your session, allowing the computer to be used by someone else. This ensures that your work is saved and any personal information is protected. Restarting and locking the computer may not be necessary unless there are specific instructions to do so. Unplugging the computer and monitor is not recommended as it can cause data loss and potential damage to the hardware.

    When searching for a PCP number for a Humana MAPD, what resources should you use? (Check all that apply)

    • A.

      NPI Registry

    • B.

      Humana Physician Finder

    • C.

      Call the doctor’s office

    • D.

      Type in the doctor’s name and phone number in the notes if unable to find PCP

    Correct Answer
    B. Humana Physician Finder
    Explanation
    To find a PCP number for a Humana MAPD, one should use the Humana Physician Finder. This resource specifically provides information about physicians affiliated with Humana, making it the most appropriate option for finding a PCP number. The NPI Registry may provide general information about healthcare providers, but it may not specifically list Humana-affiliated physicians. Calling the doctor's office is also a valid option, as they would have the most up-to-date and accurate information about their PCP numbers. Typing in the doctor's name and phone number in the notes is not a recommended resource for finding a PCP number, as it may not yield accurate results.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the fastest way to access the client guide during a call with a customer is through the SSC (presumably meaning the Service Support Center or a similar system). This implies that the SSC provides quick and easy access to the necessary information or resources needed to assist the customer. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

      Tier 3

    • D.

      Tier 4

    Correct Answer
    D. Tier 4
    Explanation
    A non-preferred brand drug is identified as Tier 4 in most plans. This means that it is the highest tier level and usually comes with the highest cost-sharing for the insured individual. Tier 4 drugs are typically more expensive and may have cheaper alternatives available in lower tiers.

These answers align with the role of a Business Analyst (BA) who assists in guiding and facilitating the transition process for customers, ensuring it is smooth and uncomplicated. The other options provided, such as providing biased recommendations or focusing on answering as many calls as possible, do not accurately describe the responsibilities of a BA.

The guide may include information about mailers, funding, and enrollment, but it does not cover the available plans.

    • A.

      GAP

      HMO

    • C.

    • D.

      PDP

    Correct Answer

    If you travel and need a Medicare Advantage Plan that offers coverage outside of the network, the plan you would choose is a PPO (Preferred Provider Organization). PPO plans allow you to receive healthcare services from both in-network and out-of-network providers. This means that even if you are traveling and need medical attention, you can still receive coverage and benefits from your PPO plan.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    OTC (over the counter) drugs are important to the health of a customer. It is important to collect this information so the customer will have a fair comparison of their total monthly drug cost.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that collecting information about OTC drugs is important for customers to have a fair comparison of their total monthly drug cost. However, OTC drugs are typically not covered by insurance plans and are purchased directly by the customer without a prescription. Therefore, including the cost of OTC drugs in the comparison of total monthly drug cost would not be relevant or accurate. Hence, the answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 24.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    Correct Answer

    If a customer wanted a Medigap Plan that had a network, what type of plan would they choose?

    • A.

      Standard

    • B.

      High Deductible

    • C.

      Plan F

    • D.

      Select

    Correct Answer
    D. Select
    Explanation
    If a customer wanted a Medigap Plan that had a network, they would choose the "Select" plan. The Select plan is a type of Medigap plan that requires beneficiaries to use a network of healthcare providers in order to receive full coverage. This means that if the customer goes outside of the network, they may have to pay higher out-of-pocket costs. Therefore, the Select plan is the best option for someone who wants a Medigap plan with a network.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    A HMO has a distinct requirement that some of the other Medicare Advantage plans do not have. Which of the following represents that requirement?   

    • A.

      Can use any doctor or hospital

    • B.

      Has networks

    • C.

      Always has prescription plans included

    • D.

      Can be used anywhere in the country

    Correct Answer
    B. Has networks
    Explanation
    A Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) has a distinct requirement that some other Medicare Advantage plans do not have, which is the presence of networks. Networks consist of a specific group of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers that have agreed to provide services to the members of the HMO. This means that HMO members can only receive covered healthcare services from providers within the network, and out-of-network services may not be covered or may have higher costs. Therefore, the correct answer is "Has networks."

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    You have received an email that has multiple people involved. Your supervisor sent it to you to answer a question he has. Which method would you use to answer his comments directly to him?

    • A.

      Forward

    • B.

      Follow up

    • C.

      Reply all

    • D.

      Reply

    Correct Answer
    D. Reply
    Explanation
    To answer the supervisor's question directly, the most appropriate method would be to use the "Reply" option. This allows you to respond directly to the sender without involving all the other recipients of the email. Using "Reply all" would include everyone in the email thread, which may not be necessary if the question is specific to the supervisor. Forwarding the email would pass the responsibility to someone else, and following up may not directly address the supervisor's question.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    When securing the call with the retiree, which pieces of information must be obtained in order to be compliant?  Choose all correct answers.

    • A.

      Phone number

    • B.

      Gender

    • C.

      Last 4 digits of SS number

    • D.

      Date of birth

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Phone number
    C. Last 4 digits of SS number
    D. Date of birth
    Explanation
    To be compliant when securing the call with the retiree, the phone number, last 4 digits of the SS number, and date of birth must be obtained. This information helps to verify the identity of the retiree and ensure that the call is being conducted with the correct person. Gender is not necessary for compliance purposes in this scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    When verifying the Medicare claim number, advise the retiree it is their Social Security number with a letter at the end.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer, False, is that when verifying the Medicare claim number, it is not advised to tell the retiree that their Medicare claim number is their Social Security number with a letter at the end. This is because sharing personal information like the Social Security number can pose a risk to the retiree's privacy and security. It is important to handle personal information with care and follow proper protocols for verifying and protecting sensitive data.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    Prescription drug plans do not require a deductible to be paid for mail order.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Prescription drug plans do require a deductible to be paid for mail order. This means that individuals must pay a certain amount out of pocket before their insurance coverage kicks in for mail order prescriptions. Therefore, the statement that prescription drug plans do not require a deductible for mail order is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    Which pharmacy would you expect to get a lower cost for covered drugs? 

    • A.

      Network Pharmacy

    • B.

      Long Term Care Pharmacy

    • C.

      Preferred Network Pharmacy

    • D.

      There is no difference in costs on Medicare PDP's

    Correct Answer
    C. Preferred Network Pharmacy
    Explanation
    Preferred Network Pharmacies typically have lower costs for covered drugs compared to other types of pharmacies. This is because they have negotiated lower prices with the insurance plans and offer discounted rates to plan members. Long Term Care Pharmacies, on the other hand, specialize in providing medications to residents of long-term care facilities and may not have the same cost-saving agreements in place. Network Pharmacies may or may not offer discounted rates, depending on their agreements with the insurance plans. The statement "There is no difference in costs on Medicare PDP's" is incorrect as there can be variations in costs depending on the type of pharmacy.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    Selecting a pharmacy in the Rx Profiler prior to searching plans will save the BA time in determining whether the customer’s pharmacy is a preferred or network pharmacy?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Selecting a pharmacy in the Rx Profiler prior to searching plans will save the BA time in determining whether the customer's pharmacy is a preferred or network pharmacy. This is because by selecting a pharmacy beforehand, the BA can filter the plans based on the preferred or network pharmacies associated with that specific pharmacy. This eliminates the need for the BA to manually check each plan to determine if the customer's pharmacy is included in the network, saving time and effort.

    Rate this question:

  • 36. 

    Medicare Part A and B effective dates are always the same dates.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Medicare Part A and B effective dates can be different. Medicare Part A is usually effective from the first day of the month an individual turns 65 or becomes eligible due to a disability, while Medicare Part B can have a different effective date depending on when the individual enrolls. Therefore, the effective dates for Medicare Part A and B are not always the same.

  • 38. 

    No special consideration is needed on selecting a plan for someone who is in a nursing home?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Special consideration is needed when selecting a plan for someone who is in a nursing home. Nursing home residents often have specific healthcare needs that require personalized care and attention. Factors such as medication management, specialized therapies, and assistance with daily activities need to be taken into account when choosing a suitable plan for them. Therefore, it is false to say that no special consideration is needed in this situation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

    When linking or adding a member to an existing account, which method would you choose to ensure the step is completed correctly?

    • A.

      Contact ADP

    • B.

      Transfer to CSR
