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, starting as low as $0 per month. These plans are built on a “pay as you go” system of copays, deductibles, and max-out-of-pockets, and require you to use a designated network of doctors, specialists, and hospitals. Unlike Medicare Supplements, these plans include prescription drug coverage, dental plans, vision coverage, a fitness plan, meals, and over the counter benefits.
Why Agents Offer Medicare Advantage
These plans bring an affordable pay as you go option for Medicare health insurance. In many circumstances, the $0 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 add-ons like Dental, Vision, Hearing, Transportation, over the counter benefits, and fall monitoring systems.
