Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans are a type of Medicare health plan offered by private companies that contract with Medicare to provide you with all your Part A and Part B benefits, which become known as Part C.  

Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, most Medicare services are covered through the plan and aren’t paid for under "original Medicare" Parts A & B. Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer prescription drug coverage.

What does a Medicare Advantage plan cover?

  • Medicare Advantage plans must cover all of the medical and hospital services that Original Medicare covers, except hospice care (Original Medicare covers hospice care even if you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan).
  • All types of Medicare Advantage plan options cover emergency and urgent care.
  • Medicare Advantage plans may offer additional coverage, such as routine vision and dental services, hearing benefits, or memberships to health and wellness programs.
  • Many plans include Medicare prescription drug coverage, as mentioned above.
