Three things you should know about Medicare Advantage
NOVEMBER 13, 2018
While Medicare Advantage is part of traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans are different – and better! Here are three things you should know about Medicare Advantage plans.
Medicare Advantage provides better services. Unlike traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage delivers a variety of additional and integrated services that help millions of Americans lead healthier lives. Beneficiaries have access to prescription drug coverage, vision, dental, hearing, and wellness care – without additional costs.
Medicare Advantage provides better care. From preventive care to fitness resources, Medicare Advantage delivers care to beneficiaries both in and out of medical facilities. This helps discover and treat medical conditions early, which can prevent unnecessary trips to the hospital.
Medicare Advantage provides better value. Unlike in traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans cap out-of-pocket costs. That means they protect not just beneficiaries’ health, but also their financial well-being – including for the more than six million Medicare Advantage enrollees with incomes of less than $20,000 per year.
Thanks to better service, better care, and better value, Medicare Advantage beneficiaries have choices, and they like it. Over 90% of those enrolled in Medicare Advantage are satisfied with the quality of care and benefits they receive through their Medicare Advantage plans.
