3 Reasons Why to Choose a Medicare Advantage Plan
March 18, 2019 | Tom Peterson
What is a Medicare Advantage Plan?
A Medicare Advantage Plan provides coverage through private insurance companies instead of through government provided Medicare services. These private insurance companies provide all of the benefits of a Part A Plan, a Part B Plan, and in most cases, a Part D Plan.
Reasons Why You Should Choose a Medicare Advantage Plan
1. Offers Additional Coverage
A major benefit to a Medicare Advantage Plan is the additional coverage options available. Because coverage is through a private insurance company, many plans include extra coverage for hearing, dental, vision and/or health and wellness programs.
2. Still Includes the Benefits of Original Medicare
With a Medicare Advantage Plan, you still get the benefits of Original Medicare. A Medicare Advantage Plan still covers Plan A and Plan B Medicare services. Most Medicare Advantage Plans include Part D prescription coverage as well.
3. Offers Emergency and Urgent Care Coverage
A Medicare Advantage Plan typically offers emergency and urgent care coverage even outside the plan’s service area in the United States. Consult your specific Medicare Advantage Plan for details.
