Finding a health care plan when you require a substantial amount of care can be stressful and expensive. For Alyson Ball of Belgrade, Montana, Medicare Advantage delivers plenty of different care services at a cost she can afford, keeping her happy and healthy.
Medicare Advantage helped Alyson manage her underlying chronic condition for the past 5 years through the better services, better access to care, and better value it delivers. Out of all the care services she receives, Alyson especially enjoys the Healthy Actions program which sends gift cards to members who take the initiative to stay healthy. These initiatives may include receiving:
- flu shots
- diabetic testing
As someone who is insulin-dependent, Alyson is thankful that Medicare Advantage allows her to take frequent tests in the comfort of her home and covers the costs of care, so her family doesn’t have to worry. This flexibility is now important more than ever during the COVID-19 crisis. Alyson is able to send out her diabetes tests from her home, helping limit her exposure to COVID-19.
Alyson is grateful for the Montana Congressional delegation’s support of the Medicare Advantage program. It delivers stable health care services to millions of Americans 65+ and people with disabilities each year, and their voices deserve to be heard.
