Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans

What Are Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans?

Part C of Medicare was passed by Congress in the 1990’s with the intent to give CHOICES in the marketplace.  By allowing choices, Congress’ objective was to give incentives for private plans to compete in a marketplace where cost and benefits might lead to improvements for Medicare beneficiaries.   Over the years, improvements were made and was officially re-titled as “Medicare Advantage”.  Medicare Advantage plans REQUIRE YOU to have both PARTS A & B.  Medicare Advantage plans typically include Part D coverage.  Many of the Advantage plans offer additional benefits which the Part C law allows.


What Does YOUR MEDICARE CADDY Think About Clients taking Medicare Advantage Plans?

All consultations concerning Medicare plan choices need to be individualized.  We offer most of the available Medicare Advantage plans.. That is why being independent is so important to our clients… as all plan choices have attributes that could be a plus to one person and a minus to another.  Medicare Advantage plans are built on cost-sharing schedules.  Advising on cost-sharing is one of the important elements of making decisions on Medicare plans.  Medicare Advantage plans require an in-depth understanding and that is why Your Medicare Caddy is so opposed to the marketing of these plans thru TV 30-second ads asking beneficiaries to call a 1-800 number.  Call us for the in-depth, individualized choices that best serve you!

What are the benefits of Medicare Advantage plans

Many Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans may include prescription drug, vision, hearing and dental coverage not offered by Original Medicare (Parts A & B). Additionally, each Medicare Advantage plan is required by law to have an annual maximum cap on out-of-pocket costs. This means that once that limit is reached you will pay nothing for additional covered medical services.

Medigap Policies

Medigap is Medicare Supplement Insurance that helps fill “gaps” in Original Medicare and is sold by private companies. Original Medicare pays for much, but not all, of the cost for covered health care services and supplies. A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy can help pay some of the remaining health care costs, like:
– Copayments
– Coinsurance
– Deductibles

Medicare Cost Plan

A Medicare Cost Plan is similar to a Medicare Advantage plan in that enrollees have access to a network of doctors & hospitals and may have additional benefits beyond what’s provided by Original Medicare. But unlike Medicare Advantage plans, a cost plan offers policyholders the option of receiving coverage outside of the network, in which case the Medicare-covered services are paid for through Original Medicare. Cost plan enrollees may decide to return to Original Medicare at any time, since a cost plan works in tandem with (as opposed to a replacement for) Original Medicare. Cost plan coverage is popular in our region, and it should be of interest to all ages of Medicare beneficiaries.
