To join a Medicare Advantage plan, the beneficiary must already be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. The beneficiary is also required to pay their monthly Medicare Part B premium in addition to their Medicare Advantage plan.
Why choose a Medicare Advantage plan?
Medicare Advantage includes Part A, (Hospital Coverage), Part B (Medicine Coverage) and may also include Part D (Pharmacy Benefits).
Medicare Advantage plans include a variety of types such as Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans, Preferred Provider Organization plans (PPO), Private Fee For Service Plans (PFFS) and Medicare Special Needs plans. Preferred Provider Organization plans differ from Health Maintenance plans in that it allows the beneficiary to choose a healthcare professional out of the planâ€™s network. Deductibles may be lower, however, if the beneficiary chooses an in-network healthcare professional.
Main points to consider when choosing the appropriate plan for you are premium costs, and the costs of deductibles. If the premiums or the deductibles seem high, you may want to see what benefits the Medicare Advantage plan offers. Some Medicare Advantage plans offer yearly eye exams, as well as free prescriptions every two years, hearing exams and hearing aid coverage. Prescription drug coverage and pharmacy choice are two other important factors to take into consideration.
