Is Medicare Advantage right for you?

5 Reasons to consider Medicare Advantage

1) Less spent on health care compared to original Medicare and supplement plans

Many Advantage Plans, if not most, offer low (or no) deductibles and no premiums. Most Medicare Advantage plans also set an out-of-pocket limit each year. As if that wasn't enough, a study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association that found that those who were on Medicare Advantage plans spent significantly less on lab services and medical equipment.

2) Advantage Plans include non-Medicare benefits like vision, hearing, and dental

Straight Medicare includes part A (hospital insurance) and part B (medical insurance). Medicare Advantage plans are called part C, which usually includes benefits that straight Medicare does not cover. This can include benefits like dental, vision, hearing, transportation, gym privileges, chiropractic care, and more!

3) Advantage Plans include medication coverage

In addition to Medicare part A and B, there is also Medicare part D, for drug coverage. Part D is almost always covered under a Medicare Advantage plan, so you will have all of your medicines covered and have no need to purchase a Part D plan!
