Colorado Medicare Advantage Plans, or Part C, are run by private insurance companies but approved by Medicare. Colorado Medicare Advantage plans provide all of Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B and often Medicare Part D benefits. If you choose a Colorado Medicare Advantage plan, you do not need to buy Medicare Supplemental Insurance.
Medicare Part C is a lower cost alternative to the Original Medicare plan and offers more benefits.
You can buy Colorado Supplemental Medicare Coverage that pays for some things Original Medicare does not cover, like deductibles, and doctor and hospital coinsurance. Colorado Supplemental Medicare plans are additional government approved plans that are provided by private insurance companies. Supplemental coverage is often called â€œMedigapâ€ insurance. To receive the benefits of a Colorado Supplemental Medicare plan, eligible Medicare applicants must also enroll in Medicare Part A and Part B.
There are 12 different Medicare supplement plans that Colorado residents can choose from and federal regulations mandate that all Medicare supplemental policies must offer the same set of benefits.
