Medicare Advantage Tactics

Medicare Advantage plans differ from Medicare Supplements in many ways. My clients should consider Medicare Advantage plans as an alternative to Original Medicare coverage. Original Medicare includes Parts A-B. Medicare Advantage plans are also known as Part C and MA plans. Original Medicare only covers Medicare Advantage. Medicare Advantage plans must also cover all services not covered by Original Medicare.

Original Medicare allows providers to bill Medicare initially and then later bill a Supplement Company. Individuals may be responsible for any portion that is not paid by Medicare or the private supplement company. Medicare Advantage plans have the private insurance company being billed. 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. The individual could be responsible for a copay and/or a deductible.

Medicare Advantage plans sometimes are called “all – in-one” plans. They include coverages that go beyond just medical. Part C plans typically include prescription drug coverage. These plans are sometimes referred as MAPD plans (Medicare Advantage prescription drug). Some plans include coverage for eye, hearing and dental care. Medicare Advantage plans differ greatly so it is important to review each plan individually.

Medicare Advantage plans come with a premium. These premiums can be very different. There are plans that offer a $0 monthly Premium. However, Medicare Advantage plan enrollees must pay the Part-B premium. Access to plan options varies depending on where you live. One example is a $0 monthly plan with premium that may be available in one area but not another.
