Medicare Advantage Plans are a popular option for Medicare beneficiaries looking for a wider range of coverage. This overview can help you understand the perks of Medicare Advantage Plans and why it might be a good fit for you.
Medicare Advantage Plans
Medicare Advantage Plans—also known as Medicare Part C—are an alternative to Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B), offering at least the same benefits as Original Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans, however, often include additional coverage such as routine vision, dental, prescription drugs or health wellness programs.
Medicare Advantage Plans by State
You can be eligible for Medicare Advantage Plans as long as you’re eligible for Medicare Parts A and B and you reside in an area where Medicare Advantage plans are sold. These plans may differ from county to county and in different zip codes. See if Medicare Advantage Plans are available in your state.
Benefits of Medicare Advantage Plans
Medicare Advantage Plans are required to offer the same coverage as Original Medicare, but often also include additional coverages, making it convenient to have all your healthcare needs covered under one plan. In addition to extra benefits, Medicare Advantage plans are often affordable, with many having $0/month premiums.*
