Medicare Advantage plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are an alternative plan option to Original Medicare and Medicare Supplements; however, Medicare recipients covered by these plans are still required to carry original Medicare part A and B.
Much of the attraction for these plans come from the low premiums. These plans are built on a “pay as you go” system of co-pays, deductibles, and max-out-of-pockets, and require you to use a designated network of doctors, specialists, and hospitals. Unlike Medicare Supplements, these plans usually include prescription drug coverage and additional benefits not covered by original Medicare.

Why Agents Offer Medicare Advantage
These plans bring an affordable pay as you go option for Medicare health insurance. In many circumstances, the low premium is attractive to the potentially insured, and low out-of-pocket cost for services help to push this product’s popularity. In addition to low out-of-pocket expenses, the plans typically offer additional benefits Original Medicare does not cover.
Medicare Advantage premiums are generally much lower than other options, like Medicare Supplement Plans, making them attractive to potential clients.
