Neil Primack of Florida Medicare Supplement Insurance is writing a monthly column in The Boca Voice. This month’s column covers the basics of understanding what a Medicare Advantage Plan is.
A Medicare Advantage Plan is Often Referred to as Medicare Part C
A Medicare Advantage Plan is often referred to as Medicare Part C, but a Medicare Advantage Plan isn’t really part of original Medicare. Instead, it’s when a private, Medicare-approved health insurance company takes over your Medicare Part A and Part B from the Federal government and manages your healthcare in their network of doctors and healthcare providers. When you join a Medicare Advantage plan, you are technically still in the Medicare program, and you must continue paying your Medicare Part B premium.
Medicare Advantage plans provide all of your Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (medical insurance) coverage. Also, Medicare Advantage plans generally offer benefits (often referred to as value-added benefits) that Medicare alone does not; such as vision care benefits, dental care benefits, gym memberships and hearing related benefits. Many Medicare Advantage plans even include prescription drug coverage.

What’s The Bottom Line?
If you are flexible with your healthcare providers and on a budget, a Medicare Advantage Plan can be a very beneficial option for Florida seniors. But leading experts agree that Medicare Supplement Insurance is preferable to a Medicare Advantage plan because you have the freedom to choose any doctor or hospital anywhere in the United States and no referrals are necessary. Before making any decisions, sitting down with a qualified agent and discussing your healthcare objectives can not only give you piece of mind but could save you a lot of money.
