Medicare Advantage Plans
Medicare Advantage Plans offer additional benefits that may not be available through Medicare Parts A & B. While Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) is a supplement to Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage is an alternative way for people to get additional Medicare benefits. These plans are offered through private insurance companies and can be personalized to fit your needs.
There are numerous types of Medicare Advantage plans: Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs), Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), Private Fee-for-Service Plans (PFFS), Special Needs Plans (SNP), Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans (MSA), and HMO Point of Service Plans (HMOPOS).
