How Does Medicare Advantage Work

Who sells Part C?

Part C is sold through private insurance companies that have detailed knowledge of Medicare’s policies. This means that they determine the coverage available in their area and can make decisions about their insurance offerings.

Why choose Medicare Advantage?

If you like having control over your benefits and are wanting to change your coverage, Medicare Advantage may be the perfect option for you. Through Part C, you can select the areas of coverage to be included in your plan.

When can I make changes to my policy?

Just like Original Medicare, changes can only be made to an Advantage policy during a set amount of time. During the Open Enrollment Period, you can reevaluate your coverage and switch to a different plan. This is an excellent option, as some Medicare plans will change year to year, in order to keep up with new medications and treatments.

How do I know what coverage I need?

One of the best ways to select coverage is by looking at your past bills. Through examining where you’ve spent money in the past, you can make decisions about what coverage to include in the future. If you’re anticipating medical needs, such as getting glasses or hearing aids, consider adding vision or hearing coverage to your plan.
