Medicare Advantage Plans: Your Guide to Understanding Your Options

Medicare Advantage plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are a popular choice for seniors seeking comprehensive health coverage. These plans combine the benefits of Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) with additional coverage, like prescription drugs, vision, hearing, and dental.

What are the benefits of Medicare Advantage plans?

  • One plan for all your needs: Simplify your healthcare by having one plan for all your medical and prescription drug coverage.
  • Predictable costs: Most plans offer copays and deductibles, with a cap on out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Additional benefits: Many plans offer extras like dental, vision, hearing, and wellness programs.
  • Network of providers: Choose from a network of doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.

What are the types of Medicare Advantage plans?

  • Health Maintenance Organization (HMO): You must see doctors and hospitals within the plan’s network, except for emergencies.
  • Preferred Provider Organization (PPO): You pay less if you use in-network providers but can still see out-of-network providers for a higher cost.
  • Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS): You can see any doctor or hospital that accepts the plan’s payment terms.
  • Special Needs Plans (SNPs): These plans are designed for specific groups of people with certain chronic conditions or living situations.
  • HMO Point-of-Service (HMOPOS): You can get some services out-of-network for a higher copayment or coinsurance.

How do I enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan?

  • You must be eligible for both Medicare Part A and Part B.
  • You must live in the plan’s service area.
  • You must enroll during the annual Open Enrollment Period (October 15 – December 7) or during a Special Enrollment Period if you qualify.
