Training 1: What is Medicare Advantage

What is Medicare Advantage

Training 1. Medicare Advantage facts

  1. Medicare Advantage plans are part of Medicare. You do not leave Medicare when you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan.
  2. Benefits are provided by a private insurance company and may be an HMO or PPO.
  3. Medicare drug benefits are usually included in an Advantage plan.
  4. A Medicare Advantage plan is not a Medicare supplement.

All Medicare Advantage plans must include Medicare Parts A and B. You can usually receive your medical and drug benefits from one plan.

Advantage plans often include extra benefits beyond what is available from original Medicare.

It’s not uncommon that a plan may include some of the following benefits:

  • Dental
  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Silver Sneakers Gym Membership
  • Transportation to and From Medical Visits.
