Health Insurance Conveniences Plans

Medicare Advantage plans offer many advantages over Medicare supplements. I recommend to my clients that Medicare Advantage plans be considered alternatives to Original Medicare coverage. Original Medicare includes Parts A-B. Medicare Advantage plans are also known as Part C and MA plans. Original Medicare is not covered by Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage plans must provide all the services Original Medicare provides.

Original Medicare is where providers bill Medicare first and then bill a supplement provider. After Medicare and private supplement companies have paid their portion, individuals might be responsible for the rest. Medicare Advantage plans will bill the private insurance company. If an individual has a Part C plan (MA) with company XYZ, and visits his primary physician or receives services at a hospital for treatment, the bill will go to company XYZ, not Medicare. An individual may have to pay a copay (or deductible) for the services received.

Medicare Advantage plans are sometimes called “all of the above” because they provide coverages beyond medical. Part C plans typically include prescription drug coverage. These plans are also known as MAPD (Medicare Benefit Prescription Drug) plans. Some plans cover dental, vision and hearing as well as wellness programs and other ancillary services. Medicare Advantage plans come in many forms and must be evaluated individually.

Medicare Advantage plans include a premium. These premiums are variable. There are plans with a $0 monthly fee. However, Medicare Advantage plan enrollees must pay the Part-B premium. Access to plans varies from one county. For example, in one county, a $0 monthly premium policy may be available. However, it may not be in another.
