What is a Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C, is a plan provided by private insurance companies with the help from subsidies provided by the government so that the insurance company can design network based plans at a various premiums.


These plans are normally designed with copays and coinsurance throughout the plans as a form of cost share that the client would assume when joining one of these plans. Most plans may offer additional benefits at no additional cost to you.


So let's take a closer look at Medicare Advantage Plans.

Medicare Advantage Upside:

  • It’s convenient to have a single plan for everything

  • The plan covers everything traditional Medicare covers (hospital insurance and medical insurance) as well as emergency and urgent care

  • Most plans also include prescription drug coverage

  • Your eligibility isn’t affected by health or financial status

  • Many plans may cover additional benefits.

  • Premiums vary

Medicare Advantage Down Side:

  • You’re restricted to certain doctors in your network (unless it’s an emergency)
  • Plan premiums can change from year to year
  • Difficult to switch to Medigap later on
  • Plan benefits can change from year to year
  • You’re subject to high deductibles and co-pays that tend to range from $3,400-$6,700
