Medicare Advantage Plans

AMR Insurance Services is here to help you navigate the complexities of Medicare and find the plan that best suits your needs. Below, you’ll find important information about Medicare Advantage Plans, their benefits, and how we can assist you in making an informed decision.

What are Medicare Advantage Plans?

Medicare Advantage Plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are an alternative to Original Medicare. These plans are offered by private insurance companies approved by Medicare and provide all your Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage. Many Medicare Advantage Plans also offer additional benefits such as prescription drug coverage, dental, vision, and wellness programs.

Benefits of Medicare Advantage Plans

  • Comprehensive Coverage: Combines Part A, Part B, and often Part D (prescription drug coverage) into one plan.
  • Additional Benefits: May include dental, vision, hearing, and wellness programs.
  • Cost Savings: Some plans have lower out-of-pocket costs compared to Original Medicare.
  • Convenience: Many plans offer a network of doctors, specialists, and hospitals, making it easier to coordinate your care.
  • Predictable Costs: Fixed copayments and out-of-pocket maximums help you manage your healthcare expenses.

Types of Medicare Advantage Plans

  • Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Plans: Require you to use doctors and hospitals in the plan’s network, except in emergencies.
  • Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plans: Offer more flexibility in choosing healthcare providers but may cost more if you use out-of-network services.
  • Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) Plans: Allow you to see any Medicare-approved doctor or hospital that accepts the plan’s payment terms.
  • Special Needs Plans (SNPs): Designed for people with specific diseases or characteristics.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between Medicare Advantage and Original Medicare? A: Medicare Advantage Plans offer the same benefits as Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) but often include additional benefits like prescription drug coverage, dental, vision, hearing care, and in some cases food cards (over the counter benefits).

Q: Can I switch Medicare Advantage Plans? A: Yes, you can switch plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15 - December 7) or the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period (January 1 - March 31).

Q: What are Special Election Periods (SEPs)? A: Special Election Periods allow you to make changes to your Medicare Advantage Plan outside of the regular enrollment periods due to certain life events. These events can include moving to a new address, losing other insurance coverage, or changes in your eligibility for Medicaid.

  • Moving to a new address that isn't in your current plan's service area.
  • Losing other health insurance coverage.
  • Having the chance to get other coverage.
  • Changes in your eligibility for Medicaid.
  • Becoming eligible for a Special Needs Plan (diabetes or a heart condition).

Q: Will I lose my doctor if I switch to a Medicare Advantage Plan? A: It depends on the plan. Some plans require you to use a network of doctors and hospitals. I can help you find a plan that includes your preferred providers.
