Medicare Advantage plans are available from private insurance companies that are approved by Medicare. Because of this, the costs and benefits may differ by plan/company, and not every plan will be available in every location. Here are some components that you might want to take note of when comparing Medicare Advantage plan options:
Look into the plan’s monthly premium and determine if you are comfortable with the premium amount. Also, compare factors such as copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.
Is the plans annual deductible within your budget? Compare the annual deductible among different plans and determine if it right for you.
Are the plans out of pocket limits right for you?
All Medicare Advantage plans include a yearly spend limit (which includes the deductible). The plan will then cover 100% of the covered costs once you reach the maximum spend limit. This is a factor worth considering when comparing different Medicare Advantage Health Plans.
Do you require additional benefits such as hearing, dental, and vision benefits, and does your plan cover it?
Are your required medications included in the prescription drug coverage?
Are your preferred doctors included in the plan’s provider network?
