A Must Have When You Turn 65 Years Old
What is Medicare Advantage?
Medicare Part C plans are usually referred to as Medicare Advantage plans. These plans are offered by private insurance companies and allow you to get all the coverage Original Medicare (Parts A and B) offers, plus additional medical services all in a single plan. Many Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage, often for no additional premium. And some plans also include extra benefits, such as routine vision, hearing and dental care, wellness services and a nurse phone line.
What is Medicare Supplement Insurance?
All Medicare Supplement insurance basic benefits are standardized by the government and offered by private insurance companies. Medicare Supplement plans are designed to help pay for some of the out of pocket costs Medicare doesn’t cover. Some plans even cover deductibles. As a result, having Medicare Supplement insurance could help you save on out of pocket medical expenses. Having a Medicare Supplement plan also allows you to choose any doctor who accepts Medicare patients and it travels with you nationwide.
