What is Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage is a Medicare-approved plan from a private company that offers an alternative to Original Medicare for your health and drug coverage. These “bundled” plans include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D. Plans may offer some extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover — like vision, hearing, and dental services.

These plans are offered by Medicare-approved private companies that follow rules set by Medicare. Each plan can have different rules for how you get services, like needing referrals to see a specialist. Costs for monthly premiums and services you get vary depending on which plan you join.

Plans must cover all emergency and urgent care, and almost all medically necessary services Original Medicare covers. Some plans tailor their benefit packages to offer additional benefits to treat specific conditions.

Why You May Want a Medicare Advantage Plan

You may pay a monthly premium for the Medicare Advantage Plan in addition to your Part B premium. In Medicare Advantage Plans, members typically pay copays when accessing care or receiving treatment from health care providers. However, these copays are capped by an annual Out-of-Pocket Maximum.
