Looking for a Medicare Advantage plan in Lake City?
When someone becomes eligible for Medicare, unless they are covered by a group plan of some kind, they have two options — Original Medicare or, Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C).
Medicare Advantage is an alternative to the government issued “Original Medicare” program, and is administered by private insurance companies, not the government.
Medicare Advantage plans combine the hospital, medical, and prescription drug coverages into one plan. This means if you are in a Medicare Advantage plan, you will have one identification card.
Medicare Advantage plans are different from Original Medicare in many ways, including pricing, coverage levels, co-insurance, deductibles and more. There are also special rules surrounding Medicare Advantage plans.
It’s critical that you get thorough and unbiased advice when it comes to choosing between Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage, because in some scenarios your final choice cannot be “undone”.
